How to Download Free Bluetooth Ringtones

It is easy to download free Bluetooth ringtones if you know how to do it. In fact, the term ‘Bluetooth ringtones’ is not quite correct, because Bluetooth do not provide ringtones, only the means to transfer them from your PC or laptop to your cell phone.

The procedure is that you first have to find a source of free ringtones, if that is what you want. Quite frankly, although free ring tones cost nothing to download, you have to consider if it is really worth it, considering that they are either of poor quality, have a limited range of cell phones that they can be used on, or are old music.

If you compare free Bluetooth ringtones to what you get for a relatively small monthly payment, it is probably a better deal to pay for them. Most sites offer real ringtones for from $5.99 a month upwards, with $9.99 about average. For that small cost you can get unlimited downloads of realtones and wallpapers. What would you rather have? Free ringtones that are old and embarrassing or the best and newest you can get, renewable every day if you want, for 33 cents a day?

Do you really want to be the guy or gal who has to answer that phone ringing out Leapy Lee or Home Sweet Home? I am not exaggerating. However, this article is not about what ringtones you want to be answering, but about how to get them onto your mobile phone using Bluetooth.

You are going to need a Bluetooth dongle, although why it is called a dongle is unknown. It must be boys and their toys, because we all know how some guys like to play with their dongles. Dangling your dongle is a well liked pastime in some quarters! So, get your dongle: you can buy one on eBay for under $10 including postage, and install it onto your computer using the installation disk. It looks a bit like a USB memory stick, and you simply insert your dongle into the appropriate slot and make the connection to the software.

You also need a cell phone that has Bluetooth. To find out if yours is suitable, go to ‘services’ or ‘settings’ and check out ‘Connections’. If you have Bluetooth, you will see either the name or the Bluetooth logo – a white double triangle making the letter ‘B’ on a blue background.

What you have to do now is to search on your computer for the downloaded free Bluetooth ringtones, and then activate Bluetooth on your mobile phone. You can now browse the cell phone folders using your PC or laptop – Bluetooth provides the interface that allows this. It’s just like browsing through any directory structure, and once you have found the area in which your ringtones are stored on your mobile phone, you can either copy and paste those you want o transfer from your computer, or simply drag and drop if you are using two windows.

The dongle provides the interface between your PC or laptop, and allows you to transfer the free Bluetooth ringtones from one to the other. You can also do the same the other way – transfer files from your cell phone to your PC, and you can use the same procedure to upload wallpapers and games to your mobile phone.

That’s how it’s done, although the term free Bluetooth ringtones is a misnomer, because all Bluetooth does is to provide a means of transferring MP3 and MIDI files from your computer to your mobile. So, whether you want to use genuinely free ringtones or pay a nominal sum to have unlimited downloads of the latest chart hits, a Bluetooth dongle enables you to do so quickly and effortlessly.

    I’m not really sure what you mean by "bluetooth ringtone"
    Bluetooth is a feature of an electronic device, a way of connecting to another device and transferring data. A ringtone has many different formats Mp3, wav, etc. If you are looking for ringtones that you can transfer via bluetooth you may have a problem. Most tunes you purchase on line are locked to your phone once you buy them this is because of licensing and royalties. If you make the ringtone yourself and transfer it to your phone you can then bluetooth it to another device
