New iPhone Ringtones/SMS Tones
Not sure if this has been posted already (can't seem to find a thread) but when do ya'll think we'll get more, or different ringtones on the iPhone? Four years later and we still have to choose from things like a duck, motorcycle, or a dog barking. Same with the SMS tones. I know it takes all of two seconds to create a ringtone from a song in iTunes, but I just find it odd that Apple is adding things like a Compass while neglecting the sounds of the iPhone. I've been using the Old Phone ringtone and the Droid SMS tones from Cydia, but it'd be nice to have some new ones from Apple.
Just wondering what you guys think.

i too am waiting for the JB purely for the options of customizing all the sounds
my first iPhone nearly went in the bin after three days until i discovered the JB, i think if apple made the phone more customizable then people may stop developing JB's

I posted the instructions some time ago in a thread that's now archived so I'll post them again. I have also tried this in iTunes 10 just to confirm that it still works.
How To Make Music Files Into iPhone Ringtones with iTunes
First off, the ringtone cannot be over 40 sec. long.
In iTunes, select the song you want to have as a ringtone, right-click "Get Info" go to "Options" and change the start and stop time accordingly to what you want to hear (remember 40 seconds) and hit "OK".
Right-click the same file and "Convert selection to AAC".
Now, right-click and copy the new file to your desktop and change the extension of the file .m4a to .m4r (which is what iTunes would recognize as a ringtone file).
Within iTunes, remove the created file by deleting it but be sure to press "Keep Files".
Move this file to your iTunes Music folder in the Ringtones category if you wish. And just double-click on the .m4r file and iTunes should open up and you will notice on the left hand side that it belongs to the "Ringtones" category.
Return to iTunes and remove the 40 sec stop time in "Options" on your original file and click "OK".

I miss my sidekick for this reason. Say what you will, but it was a good phone. I loved being able to change themes really easily and with sidekick themes you didn't have to worry about your icons. All the icons changed, sounds, and even the trackball lights. Really wish the iPhone at least allowed me to have different email/im/text sounds.

Apple has addressed two of the biggest complaints against the iPhone with iOS4: Multi-tasking and battery life.
Customization (themes etc.) and notifications (BB was great for this) are very limited on the iPhone when compared to Android, BB and Web OS.
