Tips & Warnings
- If you’re familiar with audio editing, you can upload your file to audio-editing program instead of a free ringtone-maker online. The directions to create a ringtone with your audio editor will depend on which editing software you’re using. In most cases, you’ll upload the file, edit it, add special effects, and then save it as an MP3 file to your desktop. The edits and special effects you add are completely up to you.
