Transfer music files from computer to HTC

If the song you like to set as ringtone is saved on your computer, you need to transfer it to your phone first. Otherwise you can just skip this step. You can transfer music files through USB connection, email, Bluetooth, etc. You can firstly pair HTC mobile phone with PC via Bluetooth, then send music files from PC to HTC mobile via Bluetooth.

Email serves as a great tool when you want to send small files from computer to mobile or between mobile phones. If no email account configured on the phone yet, you can follow this guide to add Yahoo mail to HTC phone, just as an example.
