First, you need to download the song you want. In order to turn a song into a ringtone in iTunes, you need to buy the song in its entirety on iTunes. You can not use your own music (unless you have a Mac and Garage Band, and that requires a whole new set of instructions.)

Once the song is downloaded, you should see a bell looking icon next to the song. Click it. From here it will give you instructions on creating a ringtone. It will cost you to take the song and make it a ringtone FYI.

If you are using a Mac, let me know and I can send you instructions on making your own ringtones for free.

Ringtones

I go to www.myxer.com and set up an account for free and then I can create my own ringtones for free and they work just fine on my Iphone. I can also download free ringtones there too!

Enjoy!

I just found this great piece of software that will do exactly what you want:

http://www.digidna.net/

It installs on your PC (there is a 14 day trial; after that you have to buy the software for $9.90). The software then connects to your PC via the USB cable. You can then transfer files from PC to iPhone and vice versa.

If you want to read those files on the iPhone (the iPhone can read many different file formats like PDF, Word, etc), then you have to download and install an app (by the same company). The app is FREE (my best 4 letter word).

You can also copy files via WiFi (instead of using the USB cable).

I just started using this program yesterday but with the limited testing I've done so far, this looks really awesome!

This is no longer true.

As of iTunes 9 they sell pre-made ring tones for $1.29. Just look up the song/artist you are looking for and the ring tones will be listed just like songs and albums are.

But you can still make then for free, but this was more trouble then it is worth for me.

Also watch the free ringtone maker sites They are very spyware/adware prone .

Not true. You can make your own ringtones on a Windows machine.

Create the file you want to use as a ringtone (no longer than 30 seconds), then import into iTunes. Right click on the file and click Convert to ACC. Remove the file from your iTunes library (but don't delete from disk). Then, go to your iTunes music folder and find the file. Rename the file extension from .m4a to .m4r. Import the .m4r file into iTunes and it will import into your ringtones.

And this is why I find it to be more trouble then it's worth

It takes only a minute or so. Not that difficult and certainly better than paying $1.29 for a clip of a song.

As well as the flexibility of converting ANYTHING to an iPhone ringtone.

Resistance is futile....

... so I've joined the collective DH just bought me one for our anni and I my iPhone

I've just finished reading all the posts on this thread but it was worth it for all the fab info - thx a mint all!

The timing seems great to with Gmail Push just coming out this wk, and a new iTunes, it looks like.

When I stuck my sim card from my old phone, the contacts moved. I synced Google Contacts, Calendar and Mail - it went very smoothly. However, I can't see the contacts that were on my old phone in my iPhone Contacts. I can see most of the numbers I'd need in Skype but is there a way to copy the Skype number to the general iPhone contacts? I don't mind doing them one at a time, when I need to call someone as eventually the most frequently used ones will be moved over. Any ideas?

cheers,
