    I created an mp3 and have it in my downloads folder. I cannot find any way to set it as my ringtone, there doesn't seem to be any way to browse for ringtone files.

    I have oi file manager that's how I can see the file in my downloads folder.

    Thanks for any help.

    Put it in a 'ringtones' folder, restart phone, it will be found and available to select for a ringtone.

    Oops actually it's a .wav file. OI file manager won't let me paste it into the Ringtones folder; is that because it's a .wav file?

    Your Ringtone should be a MP3 format and should be here >> storage\media\audio\ringtones

    Then reboot the device..and a new scan will take place..

    Got it. Just installed a media converter app and that took care of it. Thanks

    /media/audio/ringtones is fine (Unix storage uses forward slashes rather than windows-style backslashes), but they can be in a folder called "ringtones" anywhere in storage. Also, they can be in ogg vorbis, AAC or MP3 formats (I have at least one of each of those formats.) I have a WAV file that seems to work, too. I also think FLAC is supported.

    Now, if only there was just some way so that it wouldn't see a file twice... Ah well.
