New here please help me!


Dec 22, 2011
Hi everyone. I'm new here and new to the android phones. I've been a iPhone user for 4 years and just got the HTC Inspire yesterday. I have been able to get on my computer and put my old ringtones on my SD card in the phone, but I have no idea how to get to the SD card on my phone to use the ringtones. If anyone could help me with that I would greatly appreciate it. This is all so overwhelming. :thinking:
If you put those ringtones in the media/audio/ringtones folder, it should appear. If those folders do not exist, you may have to create them.

So it should look like this:

SD card > media > audio > ringtones > ringtone.mp3

And it should show up in your ringtone section. Some devices require a reboot before they appear and remember to turn off Disk mode so the phone has access to the SD card, again.
