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.


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.

Fantastic web site. Plenty of useful info here. I'm sending it to a few

I admire your ability to problem solve. I'm too lazy and non-creative to create my own silent tone so I just bought one at the App store.

Thanks a lot
