    I have put my old ringtones in the correct format. None are over 30 seconds long. I see the ringtones on my phone while it's plugged into my computer. Where the heck do they go? This is an iPhone 5c. I have tried to sync them several times and see the history of my syncs on my iPhone.

    I am having the same problem with my 5s/32 ... brand new iPhone and I am a newbie at this as well.

    So far I have not been able to get new ring tones from my iPhone apps to make it ... you are a bit more along then I am as you have them in your iTunes iPhone section of you iMac.

    Seems I have not found a the ring tone place yet ... but I got all the Apps sorted out that I want. This iPhone is a nice toy to have. I can see why people want to steal it so much ... and it is much harder to do ... as cops come a knocking on your door .. especially if you have the 'Find my iPhone App' installed and active.

    Keep posting here if you figure it out ...

    When I sync ringtones to my phone they become available for use in Settings> Sounds> Ringtone, Text tone, etc.

    You'd think that's where they would be. Like I said, when I'm in my iTunes and pick my iPhone (while it is plugged in of course), it shows them all under Tones. They are nowhere to be found under Sounds on my stupid iPhone. Thanks.

    Do you have them checked when you do the sync?

    OOOkay. Here's what I realized.

    I am pretty new to iTunes. I was going back and forth in iTunes from my device to my Library. I was wondering what the dotted circles next to each ringtone meant. I googled it a saw that means these are in the process of being synced but aren't done yet? They are m4r and the boxes are all checked. I hit SYNC and try to watch what all the steps iTunes is doing but it goes too quickly. And as I stated, these tones are all 30 seconds or less.

    I will add that my music syncs with no problems.
