    2. I have windows 8 on my laptop and i am trying to download the windows phone sync app
    Windows Phone app for Windows in the Windows Store

    But i am unable to do so. Any help would be wonderful.

    Ringtones can be downloaded via many apps in the store, or you can simply plug your device into your PC via USB then browse the folders where you will see a Ringtones folder. Drop in any mp3 file (Certain size/length restrictions that I can't recall offhand right now) and it will be available in the list under settings.

    Haven't tried the sync app on Win 8 so sorry can't comment there.

    Well, as a now former iPhone user, I created a bunch of my own ringtones. If you have iTunes, there's a way to do this that is pretty easy. I had a few saved in a folder I entitled "ringtones" and then I just copied the files and changed the handle to .mp3... Of course, I see that the OP's question has already been answered, but I'd be more than happy to share my way in full detail for any former iPhone users who are transitioning to WP8. :)
