    I have 2 ringtones that I still have on my iPhone that were mistakingly deleted from my Mac. iTunes has the the ! indicating that it cannot find them.

    How do I get these ringtones back off of my phone and into iTunes ? Simply syncing will not work, at least it didn't for me.

    If you right click or two finger click for mac your phone in iTunes on the left side a transfer purchases option is there and click that to see if that works. Took me a few times to click it for it to get my ringtones off my phone onto my computer so I could sync and not remove the ringtones.

    Try expod (free). You can get ringtones off with that, although when I just checked it didn’t show all of mine. If you can’t do it with I have other alternatives (but they cost).

    Did you even read past the OP's title? He doesn't have them on his Mac.
