I just purchased two ringtones from iTunes, using my iPhone 4S, which is updated to the latest IOS. They are nowhere to be found on my phone, and, when I go into iTunes, they are not listed under tones. Where on earth did they go?

    To select a ringtone on the iPhone: Device Settings > Sounds > Ringtone


    Getting ringtones folder to show in iTunes - - iTunes > Preferences. Under the General tab below Show, confirm Ringtones is selected


    If you didn't get around to transferring them from your phone to iTunes then they won't be on your computer.  Ringtones and audiobooks cannot be downloaded more than once from the iTunes Store without buying them again.  It is critical you make a backup ASAP when you get them.

    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer - - only purchases from iTunes Store
