    I have a Z10 shipping to me by next week and I have a question about the OS, and more specifically about ringtones.

    As with all previous OS versions, I was able to use any .mp3 file as a ringtone.
    I typically splice a portion of my favorite song using an mp3 splitter and add the file to the SD card in the phone and set my ringtone for all profiles to that .mp3 file.

    With OS 10 being so different than any other OS previously, I wanted to know if I'd still be able to use any mp3 file as my ringtone.

    I don't know if many people do this as most people I know typically use the ringtones that come with the OS version, but I like to use songs I like instead.

    My Z10 will be coming some time next week so I guess I'll find out if I can do it when I unbox it, but I thought I'd post the question here to see if anyone a) knows what I'm talking about and b) knows if it's possible in OS 10.

    Thanks much!!

    Yes it is possible to use music from a sd card as a ringtone. Happy Z10ing :-)

    yes, just copy them to music folder, I made a subfolder 'ringtones'. I like the old BBM alert tone, so I copied it into my micro-sd card.

    It has to be on the SD card? Can't be on internal memory?

    In previous OS versions, when I connect my device via USB to my laptop, I can drag/drop the file in to the Ringtones folder in either the Device or the SD card (or both).

    from my testing, I only see the sd card on my Mac's desktop, so I guess we don't have access to the internal memory, not sure about that though.

    It can be on the internal memory or the SD card. I keep my ring tones on my internal and everything else on the SD

    For me at least, when I'm connected via wifi or through a usb cord I can see both the internal and SD card
