Everybody loves ringtones. Setting a different ringtone for all your phone notifications makes it easier than ever to personalize your phone. You can even assign certain ringtones to certain people, so you can be warned when it's your mother or your boss on the phone before you even look at the call. A lot of people don't know where to get good ringtones. You can always use your cell provider's ringtone store - you can even participate in promotionals and watch for sales to get free AT&T ringtones! If you want to look elsewhere for ringtones, though, you still have plenty of options.
A simple Google search will turn up several options. Try searching for "free ringtones" or "free AT&T ringtones" to make sure they're compatible with your carrier and phone. The ones that show up at the top are the more popular ones, so they're more likely to carry the songs you are looking for. Keep in mind that many totally free sites are limited in what ringtones they offer. If you want to download a lot of ringtones and don't want to pay per ringtone, look for one that offers a monthly or yearly membership fee. With those sites, you pay that fee and then download all the ringtones you want at absolutely no extra cost. Before you agree to that, make sure you know how to cancel the service if you decide you no longer want it.
Once you've found the site you want, you may have to make a free account with them. Provide information on your carrier and your phone number so they can make sure you're eligible to use their ringtones. If it's a free site, they may not ask for much information, but they may ask to send you notifications via email. If you don't want email from them, leave the email authorization box unchecked. If you don't mind, check it. Sometimes those emails can be useful, like alerting you to new ringtones by your favorite artists, while other times they can just clog up your inbox.
After you've set up your account, start looking for your perfect ringtones. Most websites will have them organized in categories, like "Country," "Pop," and "Oldies." Find the categories that fit what you want. Alternatively, you can type in the name of a specific song or artist, and the website will find it for you.
Found the ringtone you want? Then click on "Purchase" or "Download." If you need to pay a membership fee, they will take that payment information from you before they let you check out. If it's a completely free site, all you have to do is choose how you want the ringtone delivered. Most websites opt for delivering it as a media message, but some phone plans can't receive media messages. In that case, you may be able to download it as an MP3 file and then transfer it to your cell phone through the cable that came with the phone.
Make sure and check your next bill after you've downloaded ringtones. If there are unknown charges that you think might have come from those ringtones, contact your cell phone provider or the ringtone provider and discuss it with them. If there are no unknown charges, continue downloading and enjoying your new ringtones!
