Relive Nokia's heyday with thousands of classic ringtones

Nokia Tones

If you've been a fan of Nokia smartphones and other products in previous years, you would have experienced the wide variety of loaded ringtones. To relive those special moments, Aleksi Eeben from Nokia has compiled thousands of ringtones into a single Windows Phone app. What's more is you can even save these classic tunes as ringtones for your own Windows Phones.

It's really easy to get started, simply load up the app once installed, select the track you wish to either preview or set as your ringtone and hit the buttons at the bottom of the screen. You've got tunes ranging from Caprice all the way to Dance Floor. It's a strange feeling hearing notes that bring back some fond memories.

Nokia Tones

We're sure many of you Nokia fans will enjoy this app, looking back at hardware previously owned and installing some vintage content on your modern Windows Phone. Because this is a rather large collection of ringtones, the app size is 350MB, so be prepared to remove some games and personal media to make room.

You can download Nokia Tones from the Windows Phone Store for free. Be sure to check out the Nokia design team's SoundCloud page for more.

Love the Nokia ringtones since my Symbian days. Can't wait to download to my ativ s!

titoyees says:

Wow! Good remember!!!!!

My Symbian was Nokia 6300, just perfect. After that was Xpress Music 5200 and 5800.

Just good memories!

calfee20 says:

350 megs that is a third of a GIG!

PaulKinslow1 says:

They also have a website where the ringtones can be downloaded, but it is much more tedious to navigate.

damo579 says:

The great ol days. Downloading now

Jazmac says:

Ahhh, can't wait to relive the days of the polyphonic ringtone!

Sicarius123 says:

They're so much easier to hear than stupid mp3 ringtones!

ho0lee0h says:

I wish we could edit our own polyphonic ringtones! Just like the good old days.

MikeSo says:

Instant nostalgia overload!

ChrisUCL says:

Completely agree! It also showcases the degree of art and effort that the sound engineers went to in order to produce the beautiful sounds that millions of people listened to for years. Every phone call, text message, alarm, beep, all masterfully created.

titoyees says:


now I am really sad. Nokia (as we know) is going to die soon :'(

tiny_hands says:

Or instead of wasting 350 precious MB, google "classic nokia ringtones mp3" and download the individual one(s) you want at a fraction of a meg each.

spinzeroWL says:

You speak as if we all have to worry about space. I have a 32GB isn't really a concern - the convenience of such an app is more important to me.

Jackalneck says:

+1520 16 GB
Really really need option to install apps to SD card.

Sicarius123 says:

I can't find a single site on google that has a good quality version of the morse code SMS tone.

jakersn says:

Maybe if you bing it?

titoyees says:

You just can not understand.

Maybe you never had a Nokia phone in the past (or now).

But for people like me, who grow up with Nokia Symbian, those awesome phones ever… wow, now I am feeling to nostalgic. You just don’t get it. 

2tomtom says:

Nokia Lumia 920 32GB, no worries lol

Tragic says:

Google? Who are you?

coldfilter says:

Well that's weird I have had Nokia Ringtones (different to this one) on my phone for sometime. This morning it showed an update but that update went to some homework app!!! Which I don't have on my phone

JohnStrk says:

Yeah I have that app and saw this crap in the update description. Didn't trust it. Guess I'm not updating it.

asylumxl says:

Is there any particular reason the application couldn't just download the ringtones you want rather than have to download 350mb of them?

PeadarWagon says:

I came here to say that

DJCBS says:

350 well spent MB. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

Marco Gomes1 says:

I was going to give this a try and then I saw it, 350mb!! Really??

damo579 says:

Only thing missing are the old message tones.....

Sicarius123 says:

Aww really? I was downloading this app purely for the morse code SMS :(

damo579 says:

Same here. Oh well I got some old tones anyhow.

oswi says:

Nice, but 350 MB is too much. Better to download some best of them separately from inet. Its easy to find them.

joe_easton says:

No room on my 16GB 8X :( - maybe when i get a 32GB lumia!

j_jabbar says:

The mother of all ringtone apps!

I've been looking for a clean (not recorded with a mic) version of the original midi Nokia Tune tone. (Or whatever ringtones were called back then.)

Finally have it! :D Worth waiting for the 350mb download... And a lot of the other ringtones are cool too.

kc77 says:

Is the William tell ringtone on here??

Just what the Dr. Ordered. I always was somewhat envious of iPhone tones. They sound really nice and distinctive. This app is sure to make my 925 happy.

KQ17 says:

What? Except the OG iPhone ringtone, they all sound like shit. Especially the Alien one.

ladydias says:

Lovely tones. Nokia Capella is now my new tone.

WPmunkey says:

Oh man is Robot Nix or whatever it's called here? Downloading now!

davidD93 says:

WooHoo, I can get 2011 Nokia tone now, not the worse (imo) newer one. Need more time though to go through them all.

AV2RY says:

Have over 20gb free, tapped on install. But when I saw 350 cancelled it)))

KQ17 says:

Unused space is best space.

herbertsnow says:

Wouldn't this work better as a website? Don't feel like downloading this at all.

Agree to some extent. The file size is huge for ringtones... I wonder how many are there.

PaulKinslow1 says:

They have a website also, but it's much more tedious to navigate.

elperroverde says:

I've been using Nokia since the 3210, wich I still have BTW, so of course I'd LOVE to hear again those classic ringtones! Ah, the good old days...

Zaki Smile says:

Nokia should have released an app for getting their old tunes from Sound cloud in the Black update and maybe added some more tunes. It feels a stupid with so many tunes when you only need a few of them, better to download the ones that you want. But  I will download the app anyway, just to remind me of old memories.

Headfx says:

This is great because if you save a ringtone from the list to your phone, you can then use it as an alarm tone or  text alert (at least on phones with Update 3 installed afaik)!

Respect to Nokia Design Team for all their work over the years :)

SleepyTheDon says:

Pretty big download

drozdpatrick says:

Got 32g on SD card (can't use, yet). And 20 sum' on OneDrive (stupid). Think one of these apps would go there! Prob solved Nokia.

larspassic says:

Looking forward to the "always here" techno ringtone

rianext says:

My all time fav too! :D

wpguy says:

I tapped Install and was greeted with, "You've reached the storage limit on your phone. Go free up some space, then try again."

Didn't think I was back down to 638 MB. I guess I have a few weather apps to remove from my phone! LOL

drozdpatrick says:

WI-FI d.l. ONLY! Here I come McDonalds!!!

rponting says:

I do that too :D

p.a says:

It's so annoying when the store forces me to use WLAN when I don't care about data usage with my unlimited data plan. :-( Why are they doing this? A simple warning would be enough to prevent accidental excess data usage for users with small amounts of data included in their plans.

pkvillager says:

Sweet my new 1520 doesn't have broken tone like my 920. Going to check out the rest too!

bsr95 says:

Planning on downloading app, saving the ones i want as ringtones, then deleting the app. 

Someone please alert me if that won't work for some reason! :) Appreciate it.

No it's cool. Save them and delete the app. They're still there. Probably how it's intended to be used to be fair.

IamJonso says:

Will definitely try this out. I've been using the "Nokia Tune" that came preinstalled on my Lumia 925. Might be time to change that now!

JohnStrk says:

There's a website where you can look through all these and download the one's you want. You can visit Nokia’s SoundCloud pages for more such ringtones and various sounds:

tabraoui says:

I like the idea... But I agree that 350MB is too much.
Well, if you know the name of the ringtone, try searching for it through "free ringtones" from fast code... (you can save it to your phone)... That's what I did.

Pick what you want and uninstall.

Dannay says:

How cool if only i could remember the ones i used to use!

Where's The Buffoon?!

jibreezy1982 says:

I had that on my 5110 :)

IceDree says:

Sweet ! Maybe finally I can get that ringtone from my dad's old 6610i (?) ... I always liked that ringtone , but both my 3510i & N-Gage didn't have it.
God I can't believe its been 12 years ... I feel old.

leviathan18 says:

Hummingbird yeeah

yay! have my favorite alarm back. glad this was not a nokia exclusive.

drozdpatrick says:

Uninstalling angry birds (star wars)...NOW! Why can't Windows be an efficient provider! Oh wait April update coming, April! Leak that SD thing now! Would rather get good stuff quicker.

XYers6 says:

my gad!350Mb!!....

Sweet. I like finding the simple tones for blips and bleeps. Go Kalimba!

LumiaGuy says:

Yeah, it's 350mb of high quality files - would you rather have low quality junk?  So delete some of the crap you really don't need off your phones then delete the Nokia Tones app after you grab the stuff you want.

rianext says:

I love this...!!! I've spent so much time online trying to find a decent collection of Nokia ringtones...finally got it all in one beautiful package...!
Thanks sure know how to keep your fans happy...! :')

Bow Zer says:

Too bad you can only use custom ringtones and not ones for text message, alarm..

LumiaGuy says:

guess you haven't received the Black update yet

TechFreak1 says:

You have been able to set custom tones for alarms from day 1 of wp8....(don't know about 7) Have had Koh Ohtani's swift horse from shadow of the colossus ever since i got my L920. Just drag and drop into the ringtone folder via a pc...

rponting says:

My personal favourite- humming bird, used it for 8yrs!

lol 350 MB for ringtones

TechFreak1 says:

That is quite alot, then again there is an insane amount of tones in that app :p.

Sayed Abbas says:

feel great listening to these legend ringtones... I guess its the right way to win back all the lost users by playing such ringtones on our Lumias

Vernon Amos says:

It would appear that a lot of people are searching for the pre-Amber stronger Nokia SMS tone as well. 



Mr_Drewskie says:

None of the classic original tones in this program. Look up my post in the forum on original Nokia tones...

For me, the olden nokia ringtones were golden, new and modern ones are sh*t pieces... Gonna download now!

rianext says:

'Floating' is another favourite of used to be there on e 71...but I couldn't find it in on the e 72...looked like they had discontinued it with the next iteration...finally found it again...:) :)

TechFreak1 says:

Sure brings back memories, heck i think i have my old 3510 in a drawer somewhere! Lol. I never thought I'd be able to adjust to the E61 keyboard but surprisingly it was sooo good and easy. Which i still have lying around somewhere...

wtma says:

I really like the Mosquito tone, back in the days of 8210. Am downloading the app now, hope it's included in it.

Nejcooo says:

Nokia is epic. Sadly MS will destroy them.

raj varma says:

Thanks bringing back some good memories in the Symbian days with my Nokia 6233 and xpress music 5800

enduracell says:

Alablaster was the best on wp7 and sadly was removed from wp8.
