How to Make Your Own Ringtones for TracFones

by Katrina Matterhorn

TracFone is a prepaid mobile phone service that enables you to purchase only the airtime you need to use instead of signing a contract. Features of the TracFone include text messaging, Bluetooth, speaker phone and a camera. You can add downloaded ringtones to the TracFone. You can also make your own ringtones through online ringtone-making software applications.

Step 1

Go to a website that enables free ringtone creation (see Resources).

Step 2

Upload the music file you wish to convert to a ringtone onto the website. Select the times where you want the ringtone to start and end when prompted. For example, if the song is 5:45 minutes long, you can choose for it to start at 1:15 and end at 1:30.

Step 3

Click on the "Play" button on the website to preview the ringtone.

Step 4

Select the "Create Ringtone" option. Click "Download" to save the file to the computer desktop.

Step 5

Open the email account you use. Place the TracFone's phone number in the "Send" line followed by the domain name of your cell phone carrier. For example, type "444-555-3333@txt.verizon.net."

Step 6

Attach the ringtone to the email using the "Attachments" button and send it to the TracFone.

Open the text message you sent on the TracFone. Click "Options," "Save as Ringtone."


  • Keep the ringtone to 15 seconds; otherwise it may stall the TracFone's memory.
