    I am a new iPhone user and purchased some ringtones on iTunes. This then showed under Purchased items. I then proceeded to sync my phone and especially clicked on the tab that says ringtones to include that and clicked on apply. When I look on my phone and go into my ipod I can see the ringtones that I purchased under my playlists but how do I get them from my playlist to use them to assign them as ringtones to my contacts?

    I would really appreciate some help on this

    If it sync properly. Go to your contact. Select the contact you want to have a ringtone. There should be a ringtone (if not change it say default). Select it and you will a list of ringtone available. All the one you bought will be under Custom.

    Ringtones purchased

    Hello gdlcjr, thanks for replying, I have made dubbly sure that I pressed the apply button on the ringtone tab and I can see the ringtones on my phone but only on the iPod part of the phone and then it shows under purchased. I had a look I do not have any custom under my ringtones. So where am I going wrong?

    In iTunes on your computer, where are the ringtones you bought?

    Try these steps Lilly.

    1. Go to the contacts application

    2. Choose the contact that you want to assign a ringtone to

    3. Click the Edit button on the screen

    4. You should see a field saying "ringtone: Default". Click there.

    5. You will be in your ringtones list. Choose the one you want. Close the app.

    6. Wait for your contact to call you :)
