You can set ringers for contacts, known callers, one for roaming and one for unknown.
For unknown (or any ringer) there is actually a "blank" ringer included, so I choose that for "unknown" callers and my device just won't ring or do anything --> voicemail. Simple, but nice touch that other WM devices do not have.

This doesn't make sense. There is something more that we are not seeing here.
I have to say (as the fanboy you know I am) that I don't think Apple would do this. Maybe there is some sort of online thing or AT&T service that makes or converts something into a ringtone; but I do not believe Apple will be "forcing" us to pay for a 30 second song as a ringtone from a song already purchased.
I have no information on this, it just doesn't feel right as TreoCentral forum members are casting it.

Ring tones are big business and Apple is greedy, therefore why would they not do it? They are charging you $600 for the phone after all, and refused to have it subsidized (for your own good of course).

Maybe it was ATT who demanded they get money for ringtones. They are greedy too. But this is adding up to be too expensive compared to other devices, even PDA phones. Even they allow independent MP3 ringtones.

But ATT sells ringtones itself through Media Net. They really allowed themselves to be cut out entirely from ringtone profits? You all sure about that? But then I didn't see a Media Net hotkey like there usually is on ATT phones, so maybe you're right.

You cannot legally give away any copyrighted music (without proper agreements)
There is no 30 second rule and there is no court defintion of fair use; people have sued over the use of 6 seconds of music.
I suggest you read and get educated.

With other types of phones, AT&T has to work through a $150 or $200 phone subsidy.

iTunes can give away samples because they have an agreement to sell the music. Sticky situation when it comes to someone not legally selling music, I guess.
