Set a Custom Ringtone on Your iPhone
When it comes to custom ringtones on iOS things get tricky. One way to get the job done is to use a computer and iTunes.

First, check your iTunes settings. Open the Preferences menu and go to General > Import Settings. Make sure that Import Using is set to AAC Encoder.

Once you have the file loaded on your computer, open iTunes and choose File > Add to Library and locate the file.
Now that it is uploaded, click on File > Convert > Create AAC Version.

If the file isn’t an .m4r file, change it by highlighting it and going to File > Show in Windows Explorer (for Windows) or Show in Finder (for macOS). Change the extension to .m4r and keep the window open.

Now connect your iPhone to your computer and select it in iTunes and go to Tones. Select and drag your .m4r file from the open window into the Tones pane. Let me upload it.

Finally, open Settings > Sounds & Haptics and select your new ringtone.

Set a custom ringtone on your Android phone

Things are a bit more straightforward for Android custom ringtones.

First, you need to get ringtones on your phone. You can email it to yourself or use Google Drive or Dropbox, or simply connect your phone to a computer and drag the file to the ringtones folder.

Once the file is on your phone, restart it so that it recognizes the new file.

Go to Settings > Sounds > Phone ringtone. On Samsung phones, you’ll access Settings > Sounds & vibrations > Ringtones. Find and select your new ringtone.

this much only! You now have some brand new ringtones on your device that will make you stand out from the crowd. Go ahead and add as many to your device as you need to set a custom ringtone for the people in your contact list. It will tell you who is calling without even looking at your phone. Very good.
