Concerning personal ringtones

Remember back in the day of flip phones that werent considered "smart" we could get a text message with a ringtone or picture in it and our phones would prompt us to make it our ringtone or just save it. Why would the geniuses at Android not afford us the compassion to allow us to do that again? Is that to much data for us to be trusted with in these technological times or is it simply the fact we are are supposed to purchase ($ ) and spend hours ( data time ) installing apps only to determine we know more about their faults that not and in our unnecessary journey we didnt accomplish what we originally set out to do. I mean this shouldnt be considered thinking outside the box should it?
I just want to simply move files around my device. I dont however think it should require an 8 hr tour through app-land to achieve.

What ever happened to the term "user friendly", did it become to commercialized or did Apple acquire and move that to China too?

Should I have bought an IPhone instead?

Its as simple as a long press, move, select location, move here. That's what took you eight hours?

Yes.

Pictures to memory, no, thats easy, transfering ringtones, yes, OK , I was able to fumble through taking a ringtone through an email/text and transfering it to SD card then a notification ringtone, but as far as a phone ringtone unfortunately No.

Can you explain to the me exactly how to do that?

There may be other/better ways to do it, but here is one:

Go to "My Files" icon in app drawer. Click settings button (bottom left). Click "New Folder: Call new folder "Media". Open Media folder. Click settings button. Click New Folder again. Inside of Media create another new folder called "Audio". Open Audio folder. Click settings button. Click New Folder again. Inside of Audio create another new folder "Ringtones". So that folder structure is Media/Audio/Ringtones. One inside the other inside the other. Any MP3 you download for a ringtone needs to be saved in the Ringtones folder. Then in your settings where all of your ringtones are listed you'll see the ones that came pre-loaded on your phone as well as anything you've downloaded and saved.

Very nice. I'll have to give it a go! Thanks for the valuable input.

I just put a folder called "ringtones" on my SD card and they work fine.
