    The ringtones are available when selecting Ringtones under Library in the iTunes source list and if so, do you have Sync Ringtones selected under the Ringtones tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes and are the ringtones available under the Ringtones tab for your iPhone sync preferences as well?

    where do i find that in itunes to check off?
  • Allan Sampson Level 10 Level 10
    The iTunes source list is available to the left of the main iTunes window with Library at the top.

    Under Library should be the following categories.

    Music
    Movies
    TV Shows
    Podcasts
    Books
    Apps
    Ringtones
    Radio

    You want to view all music in your iTunes library, select Music. You want to view all Ringtones in your iTunes library, select Ringtones.

    To view the various tabs for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes, select your iPhone under Devices in the iTunes source list. The various tabs for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes will be available in the main iTunes window with Ringtones being one of them.

    iTunes on your computer includes Help and Tutorials, and you may want to at least glance through the iPhone user guide. Apple includes a Safari bookmark to the iPhone user guide on your iPhone.

    Answer the first question first.

    Are the ringtones available when selecting Ringtones under Library in the iTunes source list?

    instead of selecting all ringtones , try checking off selected ringtones.. this will now show a box below that with the ringtones, now check off each ringtone you want on your phone then sync...

    What you need to do is uncheck all of your ringtones in your device sync, then sync the phone with no ringtones  and then go back to ringtones check them and re-sync, they should be on the phone then.  It worked with my 3Gs.

    I'm having a similar problem with my iphone 4s. I purchased two ringtones which have worked fine. Yesterday, after synching, I noticed that the ringtones are not on the phone. They are in  itunes, are checked and when the iphone is connected and a synch in progress, the 'synch in progress' icon shows next to the to ringtones, but they do not transfer. Any ideas?

     

    Thanks

    I had the same problem. Tried all the sync, not sync, authorize, deauthorize - no luck.

     

    I deleted the ringtones from within iTunes (move to recycle bin). Then dragged them to the desktop, then imported them back into iTunes. From there they sync'd just fine.

     

    I still have the same ringtones ghosted into the list on my iPhone... but its working now.

    Grab the ringtone, drop it in the itunes library if is not there yet. Once there with the phone connected to itunes grab the ringtone from the itunes library and drop it in the left side pane of itunes where your iphone shows. then sync again
