How to use an mp3 file as a ringtone on my iPhone?

Hello,

I want to be able to somehow load a MP3 file on to my iPhone 5S and then make it a ringtone. (Pobierz Najlepsze Dzwonki)

Can someone please tell me what I need to do in order to make this happen?

My task is being hampered by the simple fact that my current PC is unable to access either iTunes or iCloud because I'm not able to change the browser to one the these sites require.

You cannot do this as iPhone's do not support MP3 ringing tones. You will need to convert the MP3 to a an phone ringing tone format and then transfer the file over your phone.

You can use the GarageBand app to do it, just google the steps to add a ringtone with GarageBand. Ive done it in the past but its been a while.

Music is in mp3 format

Ringtones are m4r

Your probably better off using AnyTrans for iOS via pc.

I just use iTunes to convert an mp4 to m4r then drag into tones folder and sync.

I’m sure there’s hundreds of posts on this site about your issue.

M4R is the only format that iPhone ringtone supports, which is a variant of the M4A audio file type. You can turn MP3 into iPhone ringtone format easily with iTunes 12 or later. If your iTunes version doesn't match, you need to update iTunes to the latest.

1. Launch iTunes on your computer and choose an MP3 music track to use as the source. Right click the song and select "Get Info".
2. Then go to "Options" to customize ringtone settings. The length should be within 40 seconds.
3. Enter "File" on the top-left menu and select the "Create AAC version" option under "Convert".
4.Locate the converted AAC file and rename the ".m4a" extension to ".m4r" by right clicking the file.
5.Within iTunes, move to "Tones" section, then click "File" and select "Add File to Library" to add this .m4r file. Now sync it to iPhone as a ringtone.

Hope this help
