How To: Change Ringtone in Nokia Lumia

This article will guide you with detailed steps on how to change the ringtone/sound in a Nokia Lumia WP7 smartphone.

There are two methods to do the same depending on whether you want to personalize your phone tones or create a ringtone with one of your favorite songs. The second option is more advanced and allows you to create and use your own ringtones from your PC device using Zune software. Zune software is the official media store for Windows operated phones similar to iTunes for iPhone.

Personalizing your phone tones:

  • Go to ringtones + sounds.
  • Select the type of ringtone or alert you want to change and then select the sound you like.

Create your own ringtone:

  • Connect your phone to your computer with the help of a compatible USB cable.
  • On your computer, open Zune.
  • Select the sound file you want to use as a ringtone. But remember, the file must be in MP3 or
  • WMA format, and should be less than 40 seconds long and less than 1 MB in size. Otherwise, it
  • cannot be set as a ringtone.
  • Then, right-click the file, then select Edit.
  • Write ringtone in the genre field, or select it from the list (which is set to default initially).
  • Drag and drop the new ringtone to your phone.
  • After that, it is the same procedure as we did previously.
  • Go to ringtones + sounds.
  • Select the type of ringtone or alert you want to change and then select the sound you like.
