Sorry folks, I know this forum is for iOS, but my searches on Apple’s help forums are not helpful.
I used to be able to manage my custom made ringtones easily with iTunes. There was a category for “Tones” and I could add or delete with ease. Then they updated iTunes and took it away, and updated it to Music and it’s even more difficult to do this. Sure I can buy ringtones, or I can replace ones lost via a backup or download from my account, but that’s not what I’m trying to do here.
I want to archive, by themselves, my ringtones in a folder on my backup hard drive. I can’t even figure out how to get them off my phone. This is really frustrating, and the logic behind getting rid of them still eludes me.
Plus, when I do searches for this, I get either multiple posts saying how easy it is to put ringtones on your phone (via buying them) or advertisements for software that seems rather dodgy. I mean, if I have to buy other software, that’s bad enough, but I don’t want to get something that’s going to corrupt my phone.
Any clues that can help me download copies of the ringtones off my phone so that I can archive them on my backup hard drive, would be greatly appreciated.
