    Welcome to Android Central! What device do you have? Are you talking about adding a custom ringtone to your phone?

    1. Download the tone to your phone or to your computer. It can be any mp3 or wav file. You can find a bunch of good ones at Zedge.com.

    2a. If you downloaded the tone to your phone, then use a file manager app like ES File Explorer (if your phone doesn't have a preinstalled one) to copy that file to the Ringtones folder.

    2b. If you downloaded the tone to your computer, then you can transfer the file to the phone either by USB connection or by cloud storage. If you connect the phone to your computer via USB, use the computer's file explorer to drag and drop the file to the phone's Ringtones folder. If you want to use cloud storage, upload the file to your cloud service (like Google Drive or Dropbox), then download it from there to your phone. Then transfer the file to Ringtones as described in 2a.

    3. Once the file is in Ringtones, you should be able to select it in Settings>Sound>Ringtones. If you don't see it, wait a few minutes, or reboot the phone.

    4. You can do the same for Notifications--move the tone to the Notifications folder, rather than the Ringtones folder.
