Hi I was wondering if anyone knows how to sinc ringtones to their I phone. My ringtones are in the tones section of itunes on my computer but they are not being sinced to my phone. I always check the box tones to sinc but it never works. There is another radio box that says sinc tones but it gives me a warning whenever I check it that everything will be deleted from my phone if I check the box so I unchecked it but it is still not sincing. What should I do?
I have done everything else but if I check the sinc tones box then everything on my phone will be deleted. I just want to sinc my ringtones. Is there another way to sinc without erasing anything else?
I am sorry to say but if I do sinc my tones everything on my phone will be deleted. Whenever I check the "sinc tones" radio box the warning always says if I sinc my tones then everything on my phone will be deleted. I have never sinced tones to my phone before. Others that I know have had the same thing happen so I know it will happen. I have sinced my music to my phone only because I clicked the auto fill button and all of my music automatically sinced to my phone. Do anyone else know how to sinc tones?
How do I drag and drop using j.a.w.s. 13? I am using a laptop and it does not have a num pad. The command to do this on a desktop is control+insert+num pad /. Is there a command for this with a laptop?
Thanks a lot. Your method worked without a problem. Nothing was deleted from my phone I think. At least my apps weren't. I think I had to resinc my music because all of them have the word copy in front of them. Is it supposed to have that?
What I had to do was in iTunes, use "Add File to Library" to add the m4r file. (under the file menu) This will place it in its own Tones library (if you didn't already have one). You then tick the tone you have just added.
Then you can connect the iPhone, and there will be a specific sync tab for Tones where you can select what you added to the library and then sync it to your iPhone.

This thread is way old, but it helped me so much! I guess iTunes was doing this way back 3 years ago. I was trying to add a ring tone given to me by a friend,and I got the same error talked about in this thread, but making sure all was selected to the new library iTunes said it created for some stupid reason, it worked fine, and I lost nothing on my phone! Thanks loads! Love this site! And I love google for helping me find this topic on here!
Hi Blaque Diamond,
I am not aware of any other way to transfer tones to the iPhone other than what you are doing.
However, I would like to clarify that the only thing that should be deleted are the tones on your iPhone already which are not in iTunes at present.
This does not include the standard tones that come pre-installed on your iPhone.
If it was my iPhone I would ignore the warning and continue because I'd want the tones transfered, but I don't like telling others what to do when their information is involved.
