I bought a ringtone in the Google Play store. I wanted to make it the ringtone for my phone. It shows as being on my device, but I can not add it as a ringtone. I need to know how I can make this a ringtone on my phone. another song I have says it was added to library but the ringtone doesn't say that. How do I add a song to my library?

    It might help to edit your question, adding a link to the downloaded ringtone (I didn't even know Playstore offered those). Also please include where "on your device" the ringtone appears. Coming from the Playstore, that's usually an app: if it had put the ringtone in the right place, it should be found automatically by the system, as soon as the Media Scanner was run. If that important part was missed: try rebooting your device and see if you can add it then as ringtone.

  • One more hint: In case the reboot doesn't solve it, you might wish to take a look at other questions tagged "ringtone". Some look as if they might prove helpful for your case.

The solution is possibly covered in : Set mp3 ringtone in Nexus S. In summary, copy the downloaded file to /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones, and it'll be available as a ringtone upon next boot. If this doesn't help, another way could be as given here.
