"I just bought an iPhone 6s, and downloaded a ringtone from iTunes…I set it up and it worked fine. But today it's not listed as a ringtone and the phone reverted to a default tone. It's also not listed in my iTunes purchases. So I think I have to backup ringtones to computer. How do I transfer ringtones from my iPhone to my PC? My iPhone is synced with a computer that is no longer usable. If I sync using iTunes, it will delete the ringtones that I imported from that other PC."
