    Oops.
    I spoke to soon.

    It solved a duplication issue in the iPhone Ringtone list, but once I went to the phone's SETTINGS to choose the ringtone, they were all (4) the same (duplicate) name and ringtone.

    Worm in my Apple.

    re-sync without any ringtones
    then
    re-sync again with the ringtones

    remove all ringtones first then re add all of them

    Take two ringtones.
    Let's say, "One Wingy Dingy" and "Two Wings."

    Sync them. With "Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected" ON,
    "Manually Manage music and videos" ON,
    (and under RINGTONES tab, nothing checked),
    the two ringtones will SEEM to SYNC (each name will appear in the iTunes-->iPhone-->Ringtones list as separate names. (Otherwise, without the settings listed above, you will actually SEE the SAME (Duplicate) names in the iTunes-->iPhone-->Ringtones list.

    The problem still exists for me ON THE ACTUAL PHONE, even while it APPEARS SOLVED in he iTunes-->iPhone-->Ringtones listing.

    When I go to the iPhone--> Settings-->Sounds-->Ringtone, the FILES ARE ACTUALLY DUPLICATED: The list appears as:
    "One Wingy Dingy"
    "One Wingy Dingy".
    They play the same.

    If, ODDLY, I delete the first song in the iTunes-->iPhone-->Ringtones list, MAGICALLY the second song (which SEEMED to be missing) shows up and plays on my iPhone.
    The glitch, therefore, is in the Phone, not iTunes?


    Is this systematically repeatable for anyone else?

    Thank you for your patience!
    Your tip worked! IF I add some extra steps to your (too) simple instructions:

    Have manually manage music turned off
    uncheck all ringtones in itunes-->iPhone-->Ringtones
    click apply while ringtone tab is checked still

    check all ringtone boxes again via Sync Ringtones-->Selected Ringtones-->(Check all)
    click apply
    bottom right

    dont go back to sync
    ...

    It may be necessary to mention that all your previous music, podcasts, playlists and movies are deleted in this process.

    And yet, measuring by "I got all four Ringtones"...it was a success.

    Thanks
