    iOS 5 not syncing purchased Ringtones
    I have just upgraded to iOS 5 on my iPhone 4. It's working great but my only issue is that I can't find my ringtones. iTunes says they've been synced but they dont show up on my phone. They are purchased through iTunes so I don't see why there would be an issue.
    I tried rebooting the phone as well as de-authorizing and authorizing my macbook on iTunes.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Edit: I finally got it to work!

    I had to UNsync everything individually then re-sync them all.

    I had that same problem. Thank you for your advice about unsyncing and resyncing individually. For some reason it won't sync them if I use the all ringtones selection but when I chose selected ringtones after unsyncing them all, it worked like a charm. I appreciate your help. :-)

    I had the same problem, after a few attempts, I took the tick out of Sync Ringtones at the top under Ringtones in iTunes. Sync'd the phone, then put the tick back in, then also put the dot in Specified ringtones, ticked all, re-sync'd and they all appeared! hope this helps.

    Talking It Worked!
    Thanks for your suggestions about unchecking the ringtone sync and then applying and then rechecking it and applying. It brought all my ringtones to the phone.

    Ringtones not syncing to iphone
    I have tried everything you all have suggested and I am still not able to get my purchased ringtones into my iphone.

    I need help!

    The Ringtones show an exclamation mark under devices tones. What does that mean?

    I figured it out! With whatever update they did, they changed the folder name which holds your ringers in it. If you go to your iTunes folder on your hard drive, go in there and go into iTunes Media, you'll see a Ringtones folder and a Tones folder. Move whatever ringers you have in the Ringtones folder to the Tones folder and re-sync your phone and you should be golden.
