Using Free Ringtones For Ringtonemails Ringtones are great because they come in so many varieties and you can have your favorite song playing in the background while you are working. There are some things, however, that may prevent you from downloading ringtones to your cell phone. Most importantly, if you have an older or classic cell phone, it will not play most newer ringtone formats. Fortunately, this is no problem for those who are using the Android operating system. You can download ringtones to almost any cell phone as long as you have access to a computer and internet connection.
NOTE: If you do not see "Ringtones" in your Android notification settings, it means that your phone does not support them. Some older phones do not support at least some of the latest ringtone formats. See below for a list of some of the available ringtone types on the market. The three best-known formats are: Windows Mobile-style tones, which are almost identical to the current Windows Mobile phones; AT&T and T-Mobile style cleartones, which are a bit different than the T-Mobile ones but work almost identically; and other "moods," which are different from carrier to carrier. To find out what types of cleartones are available, look on Google or Amazon and search for the term "robot."
Microsoft-style ringtones are available for some android devices. They will not work on some older or new Android phones, such as the Blackberry, HTC, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson models. For these phones, you will need to download ringtones from third-party developers.
Free ringtones, such as ones from the Windows Mobile and AT&T styles, can be downloaded from many different websites. The most obvious place to look is Google, since its homepage features free ringtone maker software. The catch, however, is that free ringtone makers often come with ads or even worse, pop-ups that resemble spam. On the upside, many free ringtone makers allow you to try their ringtones before purchasing. This way, if you do not like them, you can return them.
Another option for downloading ringtones is using a third-party site that offers free ringtone downloads. Websites like Polyphonic Ringtones offer over 50 million downloadable MP3 tones. These sites have built-in ringtone creator software that will allow you to create your own custom tone for little to no cost. Once the ringtone has been created, you can then download and save it to your own personal music device, or use the Internet to find other ringtone downloads that you can use.
The key to finding the right ringtone for you is research, so start out by reviewing as many ringtone samples as you can. Once you have found a few that you like, you can then decide if the free version is really right for you. Many people like to get several free ringtones for a large number of devices so they have something new to play on all of their phones at once. If you want a free ringtone, make sure that it comes with a free trial so that you can check out whether or not it fits into your music playing habits.
