“I am trying to transfer ringtones that i download from an app to itune but i download itune on my pc and connected with iphone but dont know what to do next.”

You may get these ringtones from iTunes store or other App store, even from your customization, and now you want to transfer them back to iTunes for backup, so you won’t lose them by accident. However, as we all know, iTunes only supports users to transfer purchased files from iPhone to iTunes. That is to say, if you have some purchased ringtones from iTunes on your iPhone, you are able to transfer them back to iTunes. But other non-purchased ringtones are no allowed to be backed up via iTunes.

Don’t worry, the post will introduce you two iPhone transfer tools to transfer all your purchased and non-purchased ringtones from iPhone to iTunes on PC.
