    I just upgraded my iPhone 4 to iPhone 5s. I restored the 5 from a back up I made on my Mac. My ringtones aren't showing up in iTunes, so when I restored to my new iPhone 5 I don't get my ring tones. When I plug the 4 back in to sync ringtones it wants to remove them from the phone and sync from the library. But as far as I can tell the ringtones aren't in the library. Just for more info, this is the first time I backed up the iPhone 4 to this particular computer macbook pro).

    How do I get the ringtones into the library so I can get them on my new phone? I have a backup on another computer which might include the ringtones, but other stuff I don't want.

    Please help.

    maybe they have been moved to music library in itunes? if so just go into their info and select media type -> ringtone, or rename them infinder with extension .m4r (I think)
