I have iTunes 11, I'm trying to sync a ringtone to my iPhone, but the ringtone is not added to my ringtones folder (settings->sounds->ringtone) in iOS. The file has a m4r format, and it's currently shown in the "tones" tab in Itunes:

I tried to sync my iPhone many times, and also selected the "tones" option in iTunes preferences under the "general" tab. But I still can't find my song to my ringtones folder !

Try to

  • move the ringtones from iTunes to the Desktop (or any other "safe" place)
  • delete them from iTunes and sync
  • copy them back into iTunes and sync again

It worked for me this way.
