How do I set a music file as a ringtone on my Samsung Galaxy Ace 4?

Ringtones - setting your own music file

Your device can add a music file, such as an mp3, as a ringtone either as a general ringtone or as a personal ringtone for a specific contact. 

 

Note that you will need to have the actual music file downloaded directly onto your device in order to use it (i.e. tracks that you have purchased or directly downloaded). View how to load music files onto your device from your Windows PC.

 

You won't be able to use tracks that you play via a streaming service as the terms and conditions of most streaming services are that you pay to listen to the songs and albums, not to purchase the songs themselves. 

 

You will need to have purchased that particular album or track and have downloaded the file directly to your device.
