How to Make a Song a Ringtone on iPhone without iTunes

The first method that we're going to focus on is what you need to do to create your ringtone. Before following either of these methods, download and install iMyFone TunesMate on your computer.

Step #1 - Launch iMyFone TunesMate and connect your iPhone using a USB cable.

Step #2 - Once the program is open, click on the "Music" tab at the top of the panel and below this click on Ringtone, then choose "Ringtone Maker".


Step #3 - You'll be given the option to import a song from either your computer or your iPhone - select the relevant option and locate the song that you want to turn into a ringtone.


Step #4 - Once you've got the song open in TunesMate, use the settings available on your screen to convert the chosen song into a roughly 40-second long ringtone.

Step #5 - Lastly, click on either "Save to PC" or "Save to Device" and it will be available instantly.


How to Manage Ringtones with iMyFone TunesMate

Now that you've created the ringtone that you want to use it's time to use iMyFone TunesMate to transfer it over to your iPhone. You can also use this method if you've downloaded a ringtone from somewhere else and you want to transfer it to your iPhone.

Step #1 - Open iMyFone TunesMate and connect your iPhone if you haven't already done so.

Step #2 - Click on the "Music" tab at the top of the program and then choose Ringtones


Step #3 - Below the top panel, click on "Add" and then on "Add File".

Even though we have detailed both of these methods, it will take you no longer than 2 minutes to create a ringtone and transfer it to your iPhone using TunesMate. As we said above, if you've downloaded a ringtone from a third-party website and you want to transfer it to your iPhone then you can use this method for that too.
