At the moment I'm picking up ringtones from the music folder. However, when I start transferring my music in bulk, everything is going to get lost.

I suggest a separate "ringtone" folder and when selecting the music for ringtone, the user is allowed to search in either the ringtone folder, or the music folder.

don't forget that ringtones show up in media-player atm

This would be nice. I don't want my message tones to appear in the media library, so having a ringtones folder under /home/nemo/ (which would only be scanned into the ringtones-section) would be nice. Alternatively, if someone could tell me where to stick my message tones and how to make them show up in the menu, that would do as well. I noticed that the default tones are at /usr/share/sounds/<subfolders>, but simply putting files there didn't work.</subfolders>

Didn't try before update but at least now after when putting .mp3 to folder /usr/share/sounds/jolla-ringtones/stereo/ it will appea to be selectable directly to ringtone.

I tried to create a symbolic link in /usr/share/sounds/jolla-ringtones/stereo pointing to the directory that I created in /home but it does not work (as on n9). Please create an home directory for the user ringtones, I do not like to see my ringtones in media and write or delete files in the system directory

I agree with comments above. Would be great to have a ringtone folder where we can copy ringtones from pc or smartphone music folder (using file browser or music apps) so we can choose different ringtones without have for example message ringtone in music library.
