Free Ringtones for iPhone

You would think that Apple would let you make a ring tone out of a song you already own from the iTunes store for free, but this is not the case. The song cost .99 and when u make the RT they charge you another 99 cents. To me this is ridiculous and a fee no one should have to pay. Below I will show you how to make your own ringtones out of any song in ur library weather you bought it or downloaded illegally.

Step 1: Select a song from your library and right click on it, select “Get Info”, Click on the “Options” tab, Select the start and stop time boxes. Make the length about 30 secs(or whatever is your favorite part of the song.

Step 2: Click and hold onto the modified song and move it to ur desk top by dragging it.

Step 3: Once it is moved change the extension (ie mp3) to m4r. This is the format you must have it in to move it back into the ringtones folder in ur iTunes.

Step 4: Now that you have the file modified all you need to do is import it back, iTunes will recognize it and put it in with the ringtones.

Step 5: Now you just need to sync ur iPhone and it will show up as a custom tone on ur iPhone.

Remember to change the start/stop times back to the full length of the song on the song that you modified or when u you go to play it again it will just play the abbreviated version.

This is a pretty simple process I hope you enjoy your new tones, if you have any questions leave them in the comment box. Special thanks to Jay_sloefast for showing me how to do this
