Detailed Steps

With TouchCopy you can copy Ringtones from your iPhone to iTunes or your computer hard drive.

You need to be using TouchCopy version 12.04 or higher on the PC. Currently - Ringtones are not supported on the Mac version of TouchCopy.

Select the "Music" category from the list in TouchCopy. TouchCopy will show all the Audio and Video content on your iPhone.

If your iPhone contains any Ringtones, TouchCopy will now display a Ringtones icon. Click this to show all the ringtones on your iPhone.

You can now select and copy any Ringtones like you would with any other audio file in TouchCopy.

@Terry Nadeau Please ensure that the ringtones have been downloaded to your device that TouchCopy is connected to. The ringtones option will only display if the ringtones are local to your device. Can you please also confirm which versions of TouchCopy and iOS you are using?

When I tried to copy ringtones from my old phone, only 4 of the 6 showed up. I copied them to iTunes but when I went to iTunes they aren't there. All 6 are still on my old phone.

@Candace Mack Hello,

Please check that you can play the ringtones on your old phone. If not the file could be corrupted. It might also help to create a new backup in iTunes. Do all 6 show up now? If they are still not copying into iTunes please copy them to your desktop first. If this is successful you should then be able to import them into iTunes.

The following,
Based on the description above, I wanted to be more organised to I deleted all my Itune Library with the hope that TouchCopy will help me restore the normal synchronization they way I want it. Now NOTHING is working according to the descriptions. After cleaning the library and restarting the itune on my mac the first thing that appears at wanting to click on music sync with my Iphone 6 Plus is that it says don you want to clean all data on the iphone and use those of the itune? Difinately not because there is no data there so I would loose all my data if I ever say no. In TouchCopy, when I clicked on Music, I could only see Ringtones and over 500 music which are on the iphone cannot be seen. I tried to send the Ringstones into Itune but they can also not. Please, this being very serious, I plead with you to help me step by step restore my Itunes for right synchronization. I am waiting and please ASAP.
