    AT&T Tilt - Problem setting ringtones

    Hello,



    I just purchased a new AT&T tilt phone, and I downloaded a ringtone from the Microsoft community. I made sure to place this in the "My Ringtones" folder. However, this does not appear in the list of ringtones under Settings --> Phone.



    Can anyone please suggest how to set a ringtone that I have downloaded?



    Thanks.

    Thanks for your suggestion, but this is a prepaid phone --- no contract. As I said T-Mobile lists the number under an unknown carrier and suggested I contact Microsoft.
