    Is the purchased ringtone available when selecting Ringtones under Library in the iTunes source list?

    If so, is the ringtone available under the Ringtones tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes and you have Sync Ringtones selected under the Ringtones tab?

    If you purchased a ringtone with iTunes on your computer, under Library in the iTunes source list - the source list to the left of the main iTunes window where you select what is available in your iTunes library on your computer, select Ringtones.

    Is this ringtone available in the main iTunes window with Ringtones selected under Library in the iTunes source list?

    If so, with your iPhone connected to iTunes - available under Devices in the iTunes source list, select your iPhone under Devices in the iTunes source list to bring up the various tabs for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes - for transferring select music, movies, tv shows, podcasts, 3rd party apps, and ringtones from your iTunes library to your iPhone.

    Select the Ringtones tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes. If this ringtone is available when selecting Ringtones under Library in the iTunes source list, it should be available under the Ringtones tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes.

    If so, select Sync Ringtones with the option to transfer all ringtones in your iTunes library or select ringtones in your iTunes library. This must be followed by a sync with iTunes to transfer the ringtone to your iPhone to be selected as your iPhone's default ringtone or for a chosen contact only.

    You need to create the ringtone. You likely downloaded a song/sound file that can be used as a ringtone.

    There are many free ways to create ringtones from most any song/sound file. Google will find them.

    I just bought a ringtone on my iPhone 4 by going into Setting > Sounds > Ringtone and there clicking on "Buy More Tones" on top.

    To my astonishment it didn't show up under the list of "tones" in Settings > Sounds. I do see it in my music library within the iPod App though.

    I thought maybe syncing will fix things, but not so. After syncing I can find it in the iTunes library under Library > Music but not under Library > Ringtones.

    It also shows up under Store > "Purchased on XXX".

    When the phone is connected to the computer the ringtone doesn't show up under the "Ringtones" tab either (having selected the phone on the left).

    How do I get it from the music library to the ringtones?

    Any help is appreciated.
