How to Download Ringtones on a TracFone
By Christell York
TracFone offers prepaid talk, text, and web services with no contracts. This service is customizable with ringtones. Ringtones replace the default sound that alerts you to a call with a song of your choice. TracFone ringtones vary in cost and TracFone also charges an additional Web access charge of 0.5 units per minute of access. The total cost of the ringtone will be the cost of the tone plus the cost of the time it takes to download it. The steps to download a ringtone to your phone will vary by the type of phone.

Scroll to "Downloads" using the arrows, and select "OK."
