Adding ringtones to your Windows Phone 8.1

To add a ringtone sent to you in a text message, tap and hold the ringtone file, then tap Save as ringtone. Rename the ringtone if you like, then tap Done Done icon.

You should be using a Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC to add ringtone...

  1. Connect your phone to your PC, then do one of the following:
    • On a Windows 8 PC, click Desktop, click File explorer on the taskbar, and then click Computer.
    • On a Windows 8.1 PC, click Desktop, click File explorer on the taskbar, and then click This PC.
  2. Under Portable Devices (Devices and drives on Windows 8.1), double-click your phone, double-click the Phone folder, then double-click the Ringtones folder.
  3. Find a sound file on your PC (for example, music files are often in the Music folder and organised by artist and album), then drag the file into the Ringtones folder.


    To add or rename a ringtone, you need to move a file from your computer to your phone. You can't add a ringtone by moving a file from a folder that's already on your phone or renaming an existing ringtone. 

On your phone, go to Settings Settings icon > Ringtones + sounds, then tap Ringtone to see a list of your available ringtones. Your new ringtone will appear under Custom in the list.
