All mobile phone brands come with some pre-packaged content for ringtones, games, screensavers, wallpapers, etc. Now these may or may not suit your tastes, in which case, it makes great sense to download content which you can personalize to suit your tastes. If you want to know where you need to look for and how to download ringtones, free or otherwise for your mobile phone, go through the steps listed below.
Finding your mobile phone's content library. Scroll through the phone menu to see where content related data is stored. In many models, you might find this under ‘setting' or in ‘tools'. The location will vary from brand to brand, but each model will have one such location.
Pick the ringer and ringtones sub-menu. Once you've located the content library, choose this option to see what ringtones or ringers are already available and what is the process for downloading fresh material. You may need to log on to the internet, either through your phone directly if your service plan covers this, or connect the mobile phone to your computer and log on to the internet on your computer.
Choosing the correct site. Once online, you can connect to the company website to which your model belongs, or you can browse through your service provider's site, where you'll usually find lots of download content including ringtones. Other options will be to browse online to locate various generic sites which provide ringtones irrespective of model or brand. Once you done this go through the selection of ringtones available for download and pick the ones you want. Remember, these sites may require you to pay some nominal amounts for downloading tones. If you're insistent on not spending any money, your best bet will be to check with the company which manufactures your phone. Even services providers usually charge some kind of fee to allow access to their download library. Prices can vary from a few cents to a few dollars depending on the service. You might also want to check out various combo plans or sites where a monthly or annual subscription fee will allow you multiple downloads throughout the subscription period.
Downloading your selected ringtones. Follow the instructions to download the selected ringtones, directly to your phone, or to your computer and then transfer the downloaded content from the computer to the phone, using sync software provided with the mobile phone.
Setting up ringtones. Once the ringtones are on your phone, play around and set up the tones however you wish. For example, you can choose to set individual tones for your contacts, separate tones for personal and business contacts, or any other combination as required.
Looking for free ringtones. As mentioned earlier, the Web is a vast place and you can keep looking until you find sites that are willing to let you download ringtone content for free. However, do remember that not all services advertised as free are actually free, there will usually be a hidden catch at some point or the other which will entail pulling out your wallet. Deciding to pay or not is up to you and how much you really want that ringtone you selected.
Downloading ringtones for your mobile phone is a very easy and simple process and keeping price considerations to the side, anyone can do this simple activity.
