how to transfer ringtones from iPhone

I am enjoying my Z10 immensely. The one thing I'd like to do is transfer some ringtones that I was using on my iPhone, but I cant figure out how to do it. I downloaded an app called RCP business ringtones. All of the tones have the suffix .m4r. I tried dragging them onto my Z10 from my computer using the BlackBerry link software and putting them in the documents folder, then using the control panel on the phone to navigate to them to select them as the ringtone. The BB10 OS doesnt "see" them in the folder. How do I get these to work on the Z10? Any help would be appreciated.

Good day

Welcome to BB forums

Have you tried to convert the m4r file to mp3? You can do that then just transfer them over to your phone.

You'll need to rename the file extensions from .m4r to .m4a before the Z10 will be able to recognize them.

Is it just a matter of changing the filename extension? That should be easy enough. Or do I have to convert them somehow? The poster above suggests converting to the mp3 format, but I dont know how to do that. I am using OS X 10.8.

Yes you can try renaming extension! If that doesnt work then conventing would be the next step!

Good luck!

Yes just change the file extension. The format stays the same. The Z10 will then recognize the files.
