    hi, guys. i am so new to this it took me 30 minutes to find this place. i am about 2 or 3 generations too old for this business. i got a new samsung fascinate a few days ago and had no idea what it was until i started reading up on the computer. it is way too tricky for me. i had some ringtones sent to my phone, but now i can't get them out of my inbox so that i can use them. please have mercy on a little old granny and help me with some advice that i can understand. i'm afraid i'm in way over my head. thanks a lot.

    By far the sweetest intro thread I have ever read, not only do we like to help, but we also respect our elders :)

    :welcome: to the Forum and Congrats on the Fascinate

    Might I suggest Zedge (an application in the Market) for downloading free ringtones

    I don't have a Samsung so I am not quite sure about retrieving files from your inbox, but I am sure someone will be able to help you

    Welcome! Glad you found and joined us. I have a Droid so my suggestion may not work.

    Open the email that contains the ringtone. Do a long press (press and hold) on the attachment. A window should open that you can tap to save the attachment to your SD card. Typically, the default file is downloads. Once the ringtone is saved to your SD card you can move it to the media file which will allow you to use as a ringtone.

    Hope this is helpful.
