Ring tones lost with download.

Since I downloaded software update iOS 5.0.1. on my iPhone 4, my purchased ring tones are not available on my iPhone. They were backed up on my Mac and can be played there, but they don't sync back to the iPhone. On my Mac, I tried to transfer to ring tones to music library in iTunes, but it doesn't work. Any ideas?

Make sure the sync tones box is checked on the tones tab when you click on your phone while connected to iTunes

Thanks for the idea . . . I did select sync ring tones. The tones show up on the Mac, but they don't make it to the iPhone. Any more ideas?

Go to the iTunes store on your phone and look in purchaced items and see if you can download them again

Thanks for your helpful suggestions. I tried going to iTunes and I got messages that there was no record of these purchases. I noticed that the iPhone calendar had double entries for many events throughout 2012. So I tried to restore the phone. The ring tones were replaced and the calendar was corrected. Thanks again for your responses.

Just wanted to point something out...if you got these purchased iTunes ringtones from another iTunes account (either one you don't actually own but was given permission to use or an old one of yours that you didn't use for your iPhone) then you wouldn't be able to see them in iTunes on your phone unless you log out of the iTunes account you are using and log back in (via settings) with the account that purchased the ringtones.If these purchased ringtones came from somewhere else entirely they wouldn't show in iTunes purchases anyway. At any rate, glad you got your tones back
