This morning my phone did not wake me up with the usual Strum ringtone.  It was just vibrating but no tone.  When I went into the list of ringtones the Strum one is missing (as is the Marimba).  I can't find it anywhere!


Does anyone know if this is some sort of bug?  I have done the upgrade and that has caused more issues than I want to mention in polite company but I did it months ago so I don't imagine this is because of that.


I'd appreciate any info if anyone knows where the ringtones have disappeared to!

    If you have updated to ios7, the older ringtones are now in settings/ringtones/classic.  Check to see if they are listed there.

    I know I'm a year late and a dollar short in answering your question  My Dh too lost the "strum," ringtone and it ISN'T listed in the classic ringtones section either.  After there is an Apple software update, sometimes there are glitches involved.  Here is a solution in case you haven't solved the problem. What you have to do is to do a search on google for the "strum," download. Then send it via email to yourself.  Click on the link and then download it on to your desktop.  Connect your iPhone on to your computer and go to iTunes ringtone section. Then drag the ringtone on to your ringtones section. The "strum," ringtone should show up as a new ringtone at the very top of the ringtone list. Click on it and you'll have your strum back.  Good luck!  -Ella

    See last posted suggestion - it works! Strum is back!


    What you have to do is click on this link:  http://www.zedge.net/ringtone/1653667/

    Then send it via email to yourself. Open the email on your phone, download the attached mp3; click the little /\ arrow on the right hand side - it will probably be pre-checked to your iphone.

    Look under classic ringtones and it's there!  Thank you della_riata
