pretty sure it should work the same on the verizon iphone.
in itunes, right click (control click if you have a mac), go to get info>options
check start time and stop time and select a start and stop time. i make my ringtones 25-30 seconds.
after you do that, hit ok. then go to the song you just edited, right click or control click, and select create AAC version. it will create another file, the length you have selected. click and drag the AAC version to your desktop. then delete the AAC version from itunes. go into the options on the desktop icon you just made, and change it from m4a to m4r. accept changes etc. then click and drag back into itunes. it will be under ringtones. then sync to your phone.
dont forget to go back and change the start time and stop time back to the normal positions when your done =)

Best way to accomplish this is:
Upload the sound file (ringtone) to you itunes library.
Right click on it, select Create ACC file.
Right click on the ACC file and select show in folder.
Edit the tag from .m4a to .m4r.
Accept the changes.
Reload file into your iTunes library.
It will automatically recognize it as a ringtone.
Upload ringtone to your phone.
If its a song and you want to clip it, just right click on the song, go to info, select the start/stop time and follow the same steps but with the clipped version. Make sure that the file is NO LONGER than 30 seconds. Hope this helps.
To be clear, all this is done through iTunes.

I always sync using the same machine, so I haven't run across this issue myself.

Thanks for the suggestions, but the manually manage button is checked, and my iPhone has only been synced with this computer. I can just drag the ringtones on manually, it's not a big deal, I just think it's a silly flaw in iTunes that I can't think of one good reason for.

I just us Audiko quick and simple. Upload, cut, download, and then open in itunes. I use this since with ringtone apps you gotta connect to the computer anyway. And there is way more more music on my computer than my ViP.

@PSU, no problem buddy! If anyone out there has a hard time changing the file extension in Windows, go to the setting for that folder and make sure the box is UNCHECKED for "hide file extensions for known file types." I had this problem and had to uncheck the box before the file extension would take.

Just wanted to point this out, as it took me a few seconds to realize this, as i have my Import Settings set to .Mp3.
