When you purchase a ringtone from itunes does it not automatically put them in a ringtones folder ? I have no ringtones folder on the upper left side of itunes nor do I have a ringtones tab on the managment screen. I have two ringtones in itunes and have no clue what to do with them ? Help...

Wait...so they play fine, but they don't play as ringtones? I'm confused.
A checklist for you (for each one you want as a ringtone):
1. Must be less than 40 seconds.
2. Must be a .M4R extension.
3. Must be put into "ringtones" in iTunes.
4. Must be synced.
Are all of the above true for each one?

If you do not want the hassle of syncing whenever you want to use a new song as your ringtone, you can try GeoRing. It allows you to use any song as your ringtone with just a few taps on your iPhone. Another cool feature is it can shuffle your ringtones. You can find GeoRing in the App Store.
I got my ringtones to finally work ! Thanks for all of your help. My file extensions were m4a's instead of m4r's. As soon as I changed them and synced they showed up in the settings so that I can finally use them. And I was considering jailbreaking ?!?!? What a joke ! I think I had better get a few more months of use under my belt before I attempt that

I have used audiko.net in the past. You just go to the site on your computer, search for a song, or make your own clips to share out of any mp3. Once you have found the one you like, just download for iphone, and it automatically puts it in the ringtones folder in itunes. Then just sync when you are done. GeoRing sounds great though....i might try it out!
