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

  • Indeed. That's the alarms and notifications sibling directories.

  • Are you looking on the external SD card? Your device might not match up with mine.

    Note you may have to reboot your phone to see these changes.

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.

  • And what about alarm clocks and sms notifications?
