This is not a duplicate question --- at least not a duplicate of many questions that the search-engine gave me that seem similar up-front -- but as soon as I read them, I realized that they do not even address my question.

My situation is fairly simple --- I purchased a ringtone-song on Google Play -- and was hoping to set it as my ringtone.

When I went to settings and tried to select a ringtone -- the one I had bought and downloaded wasn't available. But that's not when my frustration hit the roof.

Next, I hit the '+' sign in the upper left-hand corner -- and it asked me what app I wanted to use. I tried this three times - one for each of the three apps they offered to carry out this option with.

Here's what really irritated me ---- each of those apps (including Google Play) I got the same-old same-old pre-installed songs available ---- no way at all to got to the track that I paid good money for!!!

What am I to do? Is there a bloody way that the song I paid for in order to set as a ringtone can possibly be set as my ringtone?

  • Is it listed in Play Music or can you find that file in a file explorer app?

  • @Lucky - I can not find it in the file explorer app. The song is downloaded - but I have no idea where to (and since it is advertised as a ringtone there needs to be some way to solve this). So how do I get it to download to somewhere that I can find it? Jul 9, 2015 at 13:08
  • @Firelord - Well -- if I didn't, it wasn't for lack of effort on my part. That said, I will look at the list of questions you just linked to --- and whether I find something that answers my question or not, I will report back here to let you know. Jul 9, 2015 at 13:11
  • Are you sure it is not in the Downloads list? Can you share the link of the play store item which you bought?
