I have in Bluetooth folder some .mp3 files. How can I make them ringtones? The phone ringtone option doesn't see them.

Add the files to the /media/audio/ringtones directory on your SD card.

That's good. And with the same way for alarmo clock and sms notifcation? – py_script Jul 12 '11 at 16:19
Indeed. That's the alarms and notifications sibling directories. – Al E. Jul 12 '11 at 17:51
Hmm, I cant find this directory. The best I can find is Samsung/music :S – py_script Jul 13 '11 at 17:27
Are you looking on the external SD card? Your device might not match up with mine. – Al E. Jul 13 '11 at 17:28
Note you may have to reboot your phone to see these changes. – Josh Feb 8 '12 at 19:15

use Ringdroid! it's got a spectacular GUI, it automatically finds all music files on your phone, and allows you to make custom ringtones and set them directly from the app. Best ringtone app i've ever used.

Open the .mp3 file in the stock media player, and from there choose Menu>Set as Ringtone.
