    According to the GS3 manual I downloaded, to set a song as a ringtone you should:
    1.Select apps, then select music player, then touch and hold on a song, then touch Set As and choose from these options:

    a. Phone Ringtone
    b. Caller Ringtone
    c. Alarm Tone

    I downloaded a song I want as a ringtone. When I touch it as directed this are the choices I get:
    a. play
    b. remove from playlist
    c. more by artist
    d. shop for artist
    e. delete
    f. search

    Nothing in the menu about Set As or ringtones. Could someone please clear this up and tell me how to set song as ringtone?

    OK. I just figured it out. I was trying to make a ringtone accessing "play music". In that app you get the above menu selection. BUT, If you use music player, then the menu comes up just as the manual says.

    off vzw forums
    Go to the person in your contact list, select them. From their contact page tap menu button then select Edit.

    Second choice from bottom should be "Ringtone"

    From there you can select default ringtone, from ringtones stored in phone, or you can go to your files for one.

    I don't want to assign a song for a ringtone to an individual, but to make the song the default setting for all calls.

    Does the song have to be saved to the phone or sd card for this to happen? Does it matter?

    create a folder on your internal sd card called ringtones if its not there already, then just drop in all the mp3 music files you may want to select. They will now show up in your settings>sound>phone ringtone selections.

    Excuse my ignorance, but how do I create a folder on the sd card? The card I have was previously in my Droid x. I took it out and put it in the GS3. I noticed a "format" option in the menus somewhere? Does it need to be formatted? Thanks for the help.

    I know you need to have the song saved as a ringtone in order for it to appear as one on the choices under the ringtone list. Not sure but I think on the card will work as long as it is saved on the card.

    All you need to do is make a folder on the SD called ringtones and put it in there. Then go to the phone and look at the Ringtones and it should be there.
