Samsung Galaxy Ace - music/ringtone help
hi, sorry new to the samsung phones and im a bit stuck.
im trying to have a music track as my ringtone. i tried doing a google and found someone saying you should download ringdroid which i have done. I bought a song on play store but i have no idea where this track has gone to and how i listen to it and if its possible to get it as a ringtone.

Downloading a song from Google Play doesn't make it easily accessible--it's a number-coded file on an obscure directory (/storage/sdcard0/Android/data/com.google.android.music/files/music)(easy to remember, huh?). The easier thing to do would be to go to Google Play Music on your desktop/laptop, download the track there (which will be a normal MP3 file without any coded filename), then copy it to the following directory on your phone: /storage/sdcard0/Ringtones (or possibly /storage/sdcard0/media/audio/ringtones).
To transfer the files, you can do any of the following:
1. Hook the phone up to the computer with a USB cable and use Windows Explorer to drag and drop, although sometimes you might not be able to see certain folders on your computer this way.
2. Upload the mp3 file to Google Drive from your computer, then download it to your phone using the Google Drive app there. You might need to install a good file manager app on your phone to then move the mp3 file to the Ringtones folder--try [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...].
3. Transfer the file wirelessly by using an app like [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...].
Once the mp3 is in the Ringtones folder, you should now have the option to choose it as a ringtone. If you don't see it in the ringtone list, then try rebooting the phone.
