Iphone ringtone wont play

After syncing my iphone, my downloaded ringtones won't play. The ringtones that came with the phone work but not the ones I bought. The phone will still vibrate but no sound. When i select the song when picking a ringtone it will not play. Any ideas?

    Exactly the same issue -- my downloaded ringtones won't play. This is ridiculous!! First they make you pay twice for the same song (once to get it on iTunes and again to get it as a ringtone) and then the double-paid-for tune stops working after a few days?????

I had the same problem. I hooked my phone back up to iTunes and synced my phone. Ringtone disappeared from phone, but remained in my computer's iTunes. Then I added it back to my phone through iTunes by syncing ringtones specifically. Here is step by step:
1. Plug in iPhone 2. Sync Phone 3. Click on iPhone, open Ringtones tab 4. Check "Sync ringtones" box and Select your Ringtone 5. Click Sync
This worked for my phone. Hope it helps. I used my phone to download ringtone.

    For BriannaKye. You can go to your iTunes application on your actual phone and go straight to the ringtones instead of picking a segment of a song through iTunes on your computer.

When I look at what is on my phone in the tone section of iTunes, it shows my problem ringtone as being on my phone, but when I look for it to use it, it is not in my sound files. I have tried syncing and resyncing my phone multiple times, even repurchased the tone to no avail. Any ideas?

My iPhone 5c won't ring

Does the phone plays music without any problem? If you play music to hear it on the loud speaker, and there is no sound, then you probably have a hardware failure, (bad speaker). But if you get to listen to the music, then try this next steps to see if it can be fix.
  • From the iPhone's home screen, tap the Settings app.
  • In Settings, tap Sounds in the third group of options.
  • In Sounds, swipe down to the Sounds and Vibration Patterns section. In that section, look forRingtone. That displays what you have set as your current iPhone ringtone. Tap it to change that.
  • This menu shows you the list of all the ringtones available on your iPhone.
    To get new ringtones, tap the Store button in the top right corner. This will take you to the ringtone section of the iTunes Store where you can stock up on new ringtones.
  • If you choose not to buy new ringtones, but instead use the ones loaded on your phone, the first set of options in the Ringtones section are ones that you bought from the iTunes Store or created using another app and have synced to your iPhone. The ones below the divider came pre-installed on the iPhone.
    Alert Tones, farther down the screen, aren't ringtones exactly. They're alert sounds normally used for alarms and other notifications, but they can be used as ringtones, too.
  • When you tap on a ringtone, it will play so you can preview it and decide if it's what you want. When you've chosen the ringtone you want to use as your default, make sure it has the checkmark next to it. Then tap the Sounds button in the top left corner or click the Home button to go back to the home screen. Your choice is saved automatically.
  • Now, whenever a call comes in, the ringtone you just selected will play (unless you've assigned individual ringtones to callers, that is. If you have, those ringtones take precedence). Just remember to listen for that sound, and not a ringing phone, so you don't miss any calls.
