  1. Hi Hemant, Since I’m not comfortable with iTunes, I’m using “CopyTrans Control Center” to copy music files, videos and Wallpapers to my iPhone. After syncing the music files are listing under music app, but not listing under Ringtones. Please help.
    Thanks!

    1. Yes Sharath you can set any song as ringtone but you need to trim that song to 30 seconds and have .m4r version of the file to be listed under Ringtones otherwise it will still be listed under Music. Follow our article for more details – How to make ringtones for iPhone
      Let us know if you have any problems and we do not recommend you to use any software other than iTunes to do this. Still if you are using just take care of these 2 things and see if it works!
