    I have tried every single thing in the book, i even added the ringtone in the ringtones file manually via USB still it does not add in my original list on my Moto E4+, i am really at a loss because the few original ringtones are awful. I have tried the moto file manager as well as the explorer es manager, i have added my mp3 everywhere it appears everywhere but does not add into the ringtone list?????
