Not possible to transfer ringtones to new phone

I recently upgraded my phone. My contacts were transfered by bluetooth, but I'm told ringtones can't be. Anyone found a solution for this. **A little unfair, since the ringtones were already paid for.

Accepted Solution

Re: Not possible to transfer ringtones to new phone

If the Ringtones are protected by DRM, then you can not copy it from one phone to the other without re-purchasing it again on the new phone.  

 

Blame the Canadian Recording industry for this sicne they put pressure on the carriers to DRM their content to increase profits.

 

Its also like if you buy a song from iTunes THAT HAS DRM and try to give it to your friend, it wont play, for the same reasons.
