How to Transfer Ringtones From a PC to a Phone

By Andrew Smith

Many cell phone providers allow users to download ringtones straight to their phones. What if the ringtone you want on your phone is on your PC and this is not a service offered by your cell phone provider? There is a website available that allows users to send ringtones from their computers directly to any telephone number. All you need is the ringtone on your computer and Internet access.

Step 1

Log onto the official Myxer website, found in the Resources section.

Step 2

Click "Make Your Own," found on the right side of the home page.

Step 3

Select the "Browse" tab found to the right of the empty text box underneath the "Choose a song or image from your computer" heading.

Step 4

Open the folder that contains the ringtone you wish to transfer to your phone.

Step 5

Click on the ringtone file. Make sure that the file name now appears in the text box next to "File name," and then click "Open."

Step 6

Enter your phone number in the text box underneath the "Enter your phone number" heading.

Step 7

Click the green "Send to Phone" box, and the ringtone will be transferred to your cell phone in the form of a text message.

Step 8

Open the message on your phone and save the file. How you save the file as a ringtone will be determined by the type of phone you own. Follow these simple steps and you can transfer any ringtone from a PC to a phone.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may need to create an account to transfer some ringtones to your phone using Myxer. To do so, select the blue "Create Account" tab found underneath the box where you wrote in your phone number. This will take you to another Web page. Click the green "Create Account" in the "Personal Account" box on this Web page. Fill out the appropriate information on the next page, and your Myxer account will be created. There is no charge to create an account, and you don't always have to have an account to transfer a ringtone to your phone.
  • Myxer can no longer send ringtones to Verizon Wireless phones. To send a ringtone to a Verizon Wireless phone, send an email to your phone with the ringtone as an attachment. The email should read "YourNumber@vzwpix.com." Be sure to add the ringtone as an attachment. Open the message with your Verizon Wireless phone, and then select "Save as Ringtone" on your phone.
