The Internet can be an amazing resource for free ringtones. There are technical ways to obtain ringtones by using audio editing software programs, or simpler by using ringtone search engines. One of the easiest to use is Tonzr, a search engine for free ringtones that finds more than eight million different songs.

Note: Most smartphones don't require special ringtone audio files anymore, as you can use any audio file supported by the device as a ringtone nowadays.

The search works by entering an artist, band, song or album title in the search form. Tonzr will search its database for matches and displays them on search result pages. Only four ringtones are displayed per page which is the greatest weakness of the search engine. Each ringtone can be played directly on the search results page. It will play for 30 seconds and stop afterwards.

Tonzr provides the means to send the free ringtone to the cell phone in various ways including sending an SMS containing the download link pointing to the mp3 ringtone, sending it as an MMS or downloading the ringtone to the computer to transfer it from there to the cell phone.

The easiest way for most users is probably to download ringtones to the computer first and transfer them to their cell phone from there. Currently the SMS and MMS options are only working with selected US carriers. Everyone else has to use the pc download option to download ringtones anyway at this moment in time.

Update: The Tonzr service is no longer available, the website returns an error when you try to open it. An alternative, you know we always have alternatives for you, is Zedge which offers thousands of free ringtones that you can download to your computer or directly to your phone. The site displays a qr code that you can scan to download the ringtone to your phone directly.

You can browse various categories like Jazz, Games, Electronica or Dance. All ringtones can be downloaded free of charge from the site.

Since you can browse the Web with your smartphone nowadays, you can also use the site directly on your phone to search for and download ringtones to the device directly.
