How can I get a silent ringtone on my iPhone?

One way to filter out unwanted calls is to assign a silent ringtone to specific contacts. Alternatively, you can assign a silent ringtone as the default ringtone and use normal ringtones for only contacts you want to hear.

The iPhone doesn't come with a silent ringtone. Here's how to add one:

1. Download a silent ringtone to your computer. Examples such as the silence ringtone or silent ring can be found online.

2. Open iTunes. Under LIBRARY on the left-hand menu in iTunes click Ringtones.

3. Copy the silent ringtone into Ringtones.

4. Connect your iPhone to the computer and sync. The silent ringtone will now appear in your list of ringtones and you can assign this ringtone to specific contacts.


Have tried this numerous times. I can download the silence ringtone to iTunes and it appears in the ringtones in iTunes, but after many attempts to sync, the ringtone does not move into my list of ringtones on the phone. Is it possible that you have to do something different for the 4S?

Try dragging the LIBRARY > Tones > SlientRing onto your DEVICE, worked for me?

Thanks!! That did it!

Nope, that does not work either. Did this and the silent ring tone still does not show up.

The instructions seem to be incomplete as I followed them and then also did what you recommended but the silent ring tone is not there.

Check this...even more comfortable:

...no converting etc. Just a dollar on iTunes. I think it was worth it.

Provides silence & call selection. Be sure to download via iPhone so it will show up directly on your device.

I downloaded this directly on my iPhone for .99, but it does not show up in my list of ringtones when I try to assign it to a contact

Try and download the recommended iPhone link on silent-ringtone.com
It's a $1.29 and installs right away to your phone library. Works!

freesilentringtone.com one worked for me.

Works fine you just need to follow the instructions fully

I followed directions fully and it did not work. I followed the hint of another writer and dragged the Silent Ring onto the Device and IT WORKED!

Same thing happened to me. Select iPhone in iTunes. Then select Tones, the 4th one over at the top. THEN sync! That is what is missing for you I think. Good Luck! Seth

I tried the same thing but I don't see it on my iPhone. Was there something I did wrong?

Excellent - it worked for me on an Iphone 5

Roger: On your IPhone go to "Voice Memos". Here you can record a stretch of silence. I did mine for 15 seconds. Make sure you are in a quiet place.
The recording, on my phone, recorded as a "m4a" file. Once recorded I hit the button to right of the meter and then hit share. I emailed this to myself, downloaded it to my laptop desktop. Once on the desktop I changed the name of the file as my brother describes how in the next para graph:

Doug: iPhone ringtones are apparently M4R files, which is similar to an MPEG-4 file format. I would have thought that with your iPhone, you could record "nothing" (keep it less than 40 seconds though). That file may been recorded as an MPEG-4, MP4 or M4A file. You'll be able to tell by the file name extension (after the dot, e.g. a file named: nothing.mp4). Then, I think all you'll need to do is rename the file extension to m4r so that in our example is becomes nothing.m4r. Not sure if you can rename the file on your iPhone (I would assume so but I'm certainly not an iPhone aficiondao).

Roger: after renaming the file so it is an mr4 file, I had to go to the app store and download for free the "Rmaker" app (Ringtone Maker). Once that was all synced up I followed the instructions on this video.

I now have a silent ringtone that I made for free on my phone and have assigned it to the F-ing telemarketing numbers that keep calling at all hours.

Good luck!!

I am really not too familiar with this subject but I do like to visit blogs for layout ideas. You really expanded upon a subject that I usually don’t care much about and made it very exciting. This is a unique blog that I will take note of. I already bookmarked it for future reference.Thank you. do my essay

Well done! I downloaded Silence and assigned it the title Junk and allocated the silent ring tone to a few numbers. Worked a treat.

Thanks for that.

Like the previous poster said, record an .m4a using voice memo with silence (10 seconds is good) then e-mail it to yourself and add it to a computer that has itunes loaded on it. Rename it .m4r and drag it into your library (I forget exactly where, but I believe you can just drag it into your library with the phone connected and it'll add as a ringtone).
Next, set this silent ringtone as your default ringtone.
Go through all your contacts and add a specific ringtone to all your contacts.

Now if anybody calls that is not in your contact list, it doesn't ring. :)

Hey there! Fast inquiry that's totally away from matter.
Have you figured out steps to make an internet site cell warm and friendly? My web page seems to be bizarre when searching from my mobile phone.
I'm looking for a style or wordpress tool that could possibly handle this matter. Please share if you have any suggestions.
Thanks a lot. Remember to help me to utilizing this

Great! thanks a lot for uploading this.

Thanks for this, worked perfectly.

These instructions do not work.

details: Tried many times to sync. The song is in the tones folder in iTunes on my computer and I sync but this does not cause it to be on my list of ringtones.

thanks
