How to set up a melody as an incoming call
Setting the melody as an incoming call
Go to "Settings" and select "Sound and Notification". Click on the icon “settings” which is on the right to the name of the profile "General". Find the item “Phone ringtone" and click on it, here you may need to select an application to select a melody. This can be, for example, the file manager "ES Explorer".
If you select "Media Storage" for searching the melodies, a window with a list of standard ringtones will open. At the beginning or at the end of this list, there is usually a "More Ringtones" item, when selected, you will go to the file manager where you can select the music for the incoming call.
If there is no item in the list "More ringtones ..."
If only standard ringtones are displayed in the list, without the option "More ringtones ...", do the following:
- With the help of any file manager, move the downloaded ringtones to the "Ringtones" folder on the internal phone memory. If there is no such folder, create it.
- Go to the settings menu for sounds and notifications, as described above. Now in the list along with standard ringtones there will also appear melodies from the folder "Ringtones".
