We show you how to create and set your own Nokia Lumia 800 ringtone

Having a smartphone is all about making it your own, be it with sounds, custom contact ringtones or themes and apps, and there's no better way to let everyone know that your Nokia Lumia 800 truly belongs to you that by making your own ringtone. If you've heard a song or clip that you just love, it's possible to use it as an alert on your device, providing you know how.

Personalised ringtones have been around almost as long as mobile phones, with people going to great lengths to key in 8-bit tones on their early Nokias, and thankfully it's a lot easier than that for Lumia 800 users, as we aim to prove!

  1. First things first, make sure you have Zune installed on your PC
  2. Upload the song you want to use to Zune
  3. Once uploaded, find the file and right click on it
  4. Click on ‘Edit'
  5. Find the genre list and either click on ringtone or type it manually
  6. Connect your phone to your PC using the USB sync cable that came boxed with the device
  7. Sync your device with Zune
  8. Once sync'd, go into your device and from ‘Start', swipe to the App list
  9. Tap ‘Settings'
  10. Tap ‘Ringtones and sounds'
  11. Tap the ringtone list
  12. Scroll through until you find the tone you want to use and tap on it

this does not work!

it does not work.....is it that the ringtone must be only 40 sec.long

Windows Phone is unbelievable crap... No bluetooth transfer, Zune says "Synced" but phone itself says "There's nothing here", but shows a piece of music that I deleted long ago and naturally refuses to play it. I deeply regret getting this phone...

Finally managed to work it out.
-make sure youve got itunes and "windows phone" installed on your comp.
-make a playlist in itunes and copy and paste the track you want
-right click the track
-go on get info
-go on options
-select the start and stop check box and type in a much shorter length. (30 seconds is good)
-click okay
-right click and click on "create mp3"
-sync your "windows phone" app/software/program or whatever you want to call it.

if you go onto the "windows phone" app )or whatever you want to call it) and look on the left hand side. underneath "devices" (which shows your phone), the 6th one down will say "ringtone". click on this and it should show the new ringtone.

underneath this it gives the option to "send to phone" - do this!!.

i think that it's a gimmick i can't do ringing tones i have done steep by steep what is ritten up here but i didn't make it

I tried it all,PC says ringtone transferred to phone, but nothing in ringtones DOH
