"I want to get some phone ringing sound effects to make my ringtone more interesting. Do you know where to get them and how to add them to my phone?" 

Yesterday, a friend of mine asked me this question. I searched online and sorted out some solutions. If you are also bothered with the same question, then you have come to the right place. Just keep reading to know more details.

Download Phone Ringing Sound Effects from Websites 

If you want to get the phone ringing sound effects, you can search it on Youtube. Some YouTubers uploaded videos of sound effects and left the links. You can click the links to download. Or, you can download sound effects from some websites. Here are some websites I recommend you:

  • bigsoundbank
  • Mixkit
  • soundbible
  • soundjay
  • storyblocks
  • soundsnap


On these websites, there are a variety of phone ringing sound effects for you to choose from such as sounds of transport, animals, instruments, humans, etc. You can click the play button to audition and download it to your computer if you like it.

Add Phone Ringing from Computer to iPhone

Compared with the android phone ringing, the format of the iPhone ringtone is more limited. Because it only supports audio format in .m4r. Therefore, you have to convert the format from MP3 or WAV to .m4r before you add the sound effect to your iPhone.

There are some online and offline format converters you can use. But I'd like to recommend you to use a ringtone maker, EaseUS Ringtone Editor. Because it can help you convert the audio format to .m4r and push it to your iPhone directly. It saves the efforts of using other data transfer software or complicated iTunes to add audio to the iPhone.

To add downloaded sound effects from computer to iPhone with a ringtone maker:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Ringtone Editor on your PC. Connect your iPhone to the PC via a USB cable. Tap the "Trust" option on your iPhone if you get a popup.

With just a few clicks, you can convert the format of an audio file and add it to your iPhone successfully. It is very safe and pretty easy to operate. And such a ringtone maker also enables you to turn YouTube video into ringtone, trim a fragment from audio, add sound effects to a ringtone, manage non-default ringtones on your iPhone.

Add Phone Ringing from Computer to Android Phone

These websites support downloading phone ringing sound effects in MP3 and WAV format. Both formats are compatible with the ringtone format of the android phone. So after you download it, you can add it to your phone straightforward without converting the format.

To transfer an audio file from a computer to an Android phone, you can make it with only a USB. Here are the steps:

Step 1. Connect your phone to your computer with a USB.

Step 2. On your phone, tap the "Charging this device via USB" notification.

Step 3. Under "Use USB for," select "File Transfer."

Step 4. Open the "Internal storage" of your phone on the computer.

Step 5. Find a directory or create a new folder to store the added audio file.

Step 6. Drag the audio file to the target file folder.

Step 7. After you add the audio, eject your phone from Windows, and unplug the USB cable.

To set the added audio as a ringtone, you need to open the "Files" app on your phone, find the folder where you put the added audio. Just open the folder and find the audio, long-press it, and tap "More" > "Set as" > "Phone ringtone." 

The Bottom Line

In addition to downloading phone ringing sound effects from websites and use them as phone ringtones, you can also use a ringtone maker to add some sound effects to your favorite song to make a new ringtone. Moreover, such a ringtone maker enables you to make audio and video into ringtones. Just get some new phone ringing sounds to replace the default ringtones and enrich your smartphone experience.
