How do I transfer purchased ringtones from my Iphone4 to the new IPhone5?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    Either re-download them to your 5...you can do so for free, or sync them from iTunes.

    You have to do it via iTunes.  Ringtones are not backed up in the cloud.  Sync your phone to your computer and make sure that you enable iTunes to sync all ringtones.  Once backed up on your computer, you can move them onto your new phone.

    Is that true?  I thought you could only download ringtones once.

    How did you create the ringtones? Was it in iTunes or a third party app? Details help us to help you.

    They were not created.  His post states they were purchased.

    You have to purchase the ringtones you "create" with iTunes. Without more detail how is one to know?

    All iTunes purchased content can be re-downloaded. For ringtones, just contact iTunes support & they will add to your download queue. Probably should have added that to my post.
