How to set MP3 file custom ringtone & notification sound on Android
Thursday 07th of March 2013
There are times when I just want to use a specific MP3 music track either as ringtone or as notification alert. On Android generally, this isn’t a hard thing to accomplish. But, on several of Samsung’s recent high-end releases, it’s nearly a walk in the park.Samsung’s much-celebrated smartphones do have a long list of default ringtones and notification alerts to choose from. You can choose any one of them until you grow weary of it — and when you do, and when you’ve run through all tones on the list, what else do you have left to do? You add your own MP3 to the list, of course.In this guide, I’ll show you how to set an MP3 file as custom ringtone or notification sound on certain high-end Samsung phones. (You may also check our video tutorial at the end of this post.)RequirementsThe instructions in this guide have been known to work on the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, and Galaxy S3 running stock TouchWiz with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher; these may also work on other Samsung phones that I have not tested.Root access on the phone is not need
How to use new ringtone as notification alert
Friday 18th of November 2011
I made a folder on the sd card in my Samsung Galaxy S II i777 and put a ringtone on it that I downloaded from zedge. It's on the phone, but there's no option at all to use it as a ringtone. Spent 45 min with a few reps at Samsung, and one of them finally said "you can't do it". He didn't sound too sure though. There's gotta be a way to be able to use this as a notification alert ringtone - not an incoming call ringtone. A sound that comes up when an event in the calendar comes up. This is a really critical function that I REALLY need. The default notification ringtones on the phone are barley audible and are very short. The one I dowloaded would work great if I could get it in there. I can even play it on the phone now, but it just doesn't show up as an option as a notification alert ringtone.

Restore Samsung Galaxy Prevail Ringtone
Thursday 10th of November 2011
I have a Samsung Galaxy Prevail M820 smartphone with Boost Mobile which has had Android 2.2 since purchase. Today the new Android 2.3.5 update was released and I installed it. However it replaced the original default call ringtone audio with one that is very unsatisfactory to me. When I go to the ringtone options it is not listed as an option. Samsung says they can't send me the audio file and is not helping me with this issue. How should I go about getting back the original ringtone I had?Thanks in advance?

How to disable notification sounds and mute phone ringing on the Samsung Galaxy S4
Monday 03rd of February 2014
Here’s how to get your Samsung Galaxy S4 to shut up.When you get an incoming call from the Samsung Galaxy S4, a green and red circle show up on screen, and you have to swipe one or the other to either take or hang up on a call. In many cases, you might need a moment to figure out whether or not to take a call, but don’t want the ringtone still chirping away. Luckily, you can just tap the volume down button on the left side of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to mute a call without hanging up on it.Other notification sounds can be turned down or muted by pressing down the volume key at any other time. Just make sure that it’s showing a phone icon when you do so; if it’s showing a speaker icon, then you’re adjusting the media volume, and not the ringtone volume. To get more granular control in notification volume, tap the gear next to the volume slider. From there you can adjust volume for ringtones, media, notifications, and other system sounds.Sound profiles can also be toggled between on, off, and vibrate by swiping from the top of the screen to bring down the no

How to install custom ringtone on a Samsung Galaxy Centura Tracfone?
Saturday 20th of June 2015
Let me start by saying that I'm a Mac person who knows nothing about other operating systems or phones (but please don't hold that against me!). My mother has dementia and will sometimes leave her phone off the hook. One suggestion was to hide a cell phone in her house with a ringtone that I record saying, "Mom, I think your phone is off the hook; can you go hang it up?" — if it seems like her line has been busy for too long, I can call the cell phone and the ringtone will prompt her to hang up her phone. So, I talked with two people at Best Buy, and they assured me that any MP3 can be made into a ringtone, and we decided together on a noncontract phone (Samsung Galaxy Centura Tracfone, TFS738C) since it won't be used for any other purpose. I recorded the message (on my iPhone), saved it as an mp3, emailed it to the Samsung, and downloaded it — it plays just fine on that phone. But I can't figure out how to make it a ringtone. I've looked online, and I keep seeing instructions about making a Ringtones folder within My Files, but I don't see a My Files folder on this pho
