Many users have a favorite sound or audio track that they prefer to use for their ringtone, or sometimes the included ringtones on the device are not preferred. If that’s the case, you can also load custom audio files into the phone for Ringtones, Notification sounds, and Alarm sounds.
To load a custom audio file into your phone, you can use one of the two following methods:
USB transfer from PC
- Using a micro-USB, plug the phone into your PC.
- Place the phone in File Transfer mode by:
- Open the notification area at the top of the phone
- Tap on USB Charging and select Transfer Files
- Open your file explorer on your PC and navigate to This PC\F1\Internal shared storage
- Copy your custom audio file into either the Ringtones, Notifications, or Alarms folders, depending what type of event you wish to use the sound file for.
- Your audio file should now be available for that type of notification or ring sound.
- Pair your phone with the device containing the audio file you’d like to use.
(You can find instructions for How to pair Bluetooth here.)
- Send the audio file to your F1 phone.
- Open the File Browser function on your phone by going to the main Menu > Tools > Files
- Open the Internal shared storage/bluetooth folder.
- Long-press the audio file you just received, or, to proceed without touch, press the Menu key on the upper-left of your keypad, and select Select file or folder, and use the d-pad and center keys to select your files.
- After selecting the file(s) – you should see something like 1 selected at the top – press the Menu key (upper-left on keypad) and select Copy.
- Use the Back key to go up one folder level, then find and open the desired Ringtones, Alarms, or Notifications folder.
- From within your desired tone type folder, press the Menu key and select Paste.
- Your audio file should now be present in the folder and available for that type of notification or ring sound.
