The mp3 should be saved in the Ringtones folder on the internal memory space. If it is already on the phone, download a free file explorer app from the Play Store and copy the file from where you have it saved currently and paste it into the Ringtones folder. The Android OS usually already has the Ringtones folder created for you.
