Search the Internet for software that allows you to make ringtones for your cell phone.
Take advantage of programs such as Make Your Own Ringtones, Xingtone Ringtone Maker and Audacity that let you make ringtones from your personal music collection. You select the tunes to edit, pick the slice of the song you want for your ringtone and then download it.
Make sure the software program you are using is compatible with your computer's operating system.
Use songs directly off a CD or sounds you have recorded to make ringtones. You'll get a better sound than if you make them from an MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Player) audio file formats.
Limit your ringtone clip to 20 seconds.
Verify your cell phone's compatibility with the free ringtones before adding them to your phone.
Email your new ringtone to your phone after verifying your phone's email address with your service provider. You can also download directly to your phone or download it to your computer first and then upload it to your phone.
Check your ringtone on your cell phone, save it and then designate it as your ringer
