How to Setup Your Ringtones on the iPhone 5


Sometimes, with all the features of the iPhone 5, I forget about its initial purpose.  First and foremost, it's a cell phone.  It was created so we can communicate with our friends, family, and acquaintances.  Sometimes, we look at all the ways we can communicate (ex. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, Voxer, iMessage, etc.) that we forget that we can just pick up our iPhones and make a regular call.

I met a person recently and while we were talking, I noticed he had an iPhone.  I told him about Apple Newbies and how I help people with Apple product problems with informative tips and tutorials.  Usually, when I tell someone this, I open myself up because I have no idea what problem they may have or if I will have the solution.  Sometimes, I can quickly resolve the problem.  If I can't help them on the spot, that's ok because even in defeat there is a lesson learned (Jay-Z/Samuel Smiles).  Normally, that creates an opportunity to create tips and/or tutorials to help with that problem.

The guy I met simply wanted to use his cell phone.  He only wanted to be able to change the ringtones for different callers.  That's not too much to ask for.  So, today, let's talk about ringtones...

First, let's look at how to change your ringtones for different contacts.  This can be handy if you're not close to your phone while it is ringing.  Based on the ringtone, you can decide how important the call is.  Here is a short video tutorial to help you with that.

The above tutorial is all you really need if want to use the ringtones that come standard on your iPhone.  But if you're like most people, you probably prefer to have custom ringtones.  Maybe there is a song that you just want to add to your iPhone as a ringtone.  Take a look at the following video tutorial for how to make a song into a ringtone using iTunes.

Did you find the tutorials helpful?
