I just managed this easily onto a Samsung Galaxy S ,can't wait for someone to ring me now  ;D   
 Here's what I did   ( I think ) . downloaded QE2horn from link above > connected media card to computer ( NOT SIM CARD ) >located folder called MUSIC and dragged mp3 file from computer into  MUSIC folder .

replaced Media card into phone >  tapped Music file>  played QE2 horn >LEFT CLICKED  (button lower left )>  USE AS RINGTONE .   

hope it's of some use and hopefully the same system  may work with other phones .

For an iPhone you need a conversion to an m4r file (whatever that is !!!)    I've attached it here and everybody can feel free to download it.

Hi Rod,

Don't give up on it - my phone is an old 'dumb' Samsung model and the QE2 horn works well on it.

Download the mp3 file to your computer, then drag/copy it onto the little removable memory card in your 'dumb' phone.
Then go to 'Settings' and select 'QE2 Horn' as your phone ring tone.

I don't buy these new expensive fandangled gadgets - they never work after having fallen into the E.R. bilge a couple of times, but the dumb phones do if they are not submerged too long!

Cheers

My phone is waterproof for 2 hours, so they say, and droppable from 30 feet..that I have tried.

Have you transferred it from the memory card to the phone memory?

Sometimes, once it's in the phone, the phone will convert it to a playable format.

Cheers

It might have downloaded to "ringtones" all on it's own.    If it has you are on a lucky streak, just select it and wait for the phone to ring !!!         Good luck !

Has anyone downloaded QE2's whistle as a ringtone to an iPhone 6s ?  In going to the ringtone choices, I do not see an option to upload an individualized ringtone. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks !

I recently got a iPhone 6, but it has been a real pain to get it working, I had to remove re-add the file multiple times to make it work. This is something I just hate about the iDevices.

You need to download the m4r file provided above here to your desktop, then connect your telephone using the cable to your PC/Mac.


Launch iTunes, and click on your telephone in the menu bar once it shows. In the left menu there will be a option which is labled 'Ringtones', click on this, and you shut be presented with a empty roster.


Now drag and drop your downloaded m4r file into this roster, and when it appears, click on the Sync button which is in the bottom pane next to the disk space usage.


If there are no exclamation marks on anything liking on that visible after this part, then you are good to go, and it shut appear in the settings menu.


If you want detailed instructions with screenshots, please tell me, this is just writen out of the top of my head, since I don't have iTunes reinstalled yet on Windows 10.

No problem  :)


If you have any problems, please let me now :)


I do advice you to turn your volume done, I almost give all of my colleagues a heat attack once when I had it turned on to load  ::)

Hi Bob -

Thanks for your message.  I have to get a data cable for my phone and look forward to trying the download soon.  I can see the surprise factor happening when I get QE2 on my phone and I receive a call.  Thanks again for all of your help, and I will certainly ask for help if I run into any problems !

The USB that came shipped with your iPhone is the only cable you need for this :)
