    Is the ringtone under 40 seconds in length? I read somewhere that if the ringtone is too long it won't actually work on the iPhone even though iTunes shows it as a ringtone.

    Do you have Tones under iTunes set to sync everything or just specific ringtones?

    AH! That may be the problem then ;)

    Plug your iPhone back into the computer. Once they are done syncing, click on the iPhone. Then it should bring up the summary (or at least the last screen you used) for the iPhone. There should be a bunch of tabs, look for Tones. Click on it. Then look for something like "Sync all Tones" and mark it. Then press SYNC.

    This works for me.
    But first
    Make sure the file extension on the tone is .m4r
    Make sure Manually Manage Music on the Summary tab is ticked.
    Don't tick Sync Tones on the tone tab
    Drag and drop the ringtones to your phone then sync (apply)
    This way you don't get the scary message that your content is all going to be deleted.

    I have not paid apple for any ring tones
    Have you looked in settings > sounds > sounds and vibration patterns ?

    Sorry Hook, but are you not paying attention because that makes no sense at all. No one needs to buy anything or use anything other than iTunes and the search function here to create ring tones from music they already own.

    I believe you need to make a folder for it, i would google zedge & see the instructions.
    This is my guess... Download your tones,put phone to iTunes make a folder than drop it into the ringtones section of your iPhone not the music section.
    This is my guess..
