    Screenshots are the easy part. Hit the home button and lock button together and it'll take the capture. The screen will flash and you'll hear a camera shutter tone.

    Setting ringtones is a lot harder. My advice is the breakdown and purchase the tone you want from iTunes. They are like $1.29 and well worth missing the trouble. But if you want to do it yourself, there are lots of guides out there. Google it and follow those instructions.

    You should be able to add the m4r to iTunes and sync the ringtone, then go to settings and sounds and you should be able to add the ringtone

    How long is the file? My self-made custom ring tones are under 30 seconds and work fine.

    When your screen is locked just double click the home button. The buttons you're looking for will appear welcome to the forums! As for the ringtone yeah you can make them. But I use an app called ringtones. You have to do the whole sync/file sharing bit in iTunes. It's annoying and I end up going back to the marimba!

    KCH got it. Ringtones can be up to 30 seconds. Text tones up to 5 seconds, I think. That's the issue you're facing. If you know how to build up to the .M4r portion then you're gold.

    Can you not trim your ringtone to 30 seconds or less?

    Congratulations on the iP5. That was my first iPhone as well. Making ringtones is a bit complicated but generally pretty easy. As jclisenby indicated...just google making ringtones for iOS or something similar and follow the instructions. It may seem like you are bouncing around from computer to phone back to computer back to the phone...but it isn't bad after you do it the first time. The clip, which you can make from within iTunes cannot be over 30 seconds or it will not be recognized as a ringtone. Good luck and welcome to iMore...and the iPhone 5. BTW, I missed it if you said...What color is your phone? White or black?

    Yeah, the 30sec. limit is pretty strictly set (i think i got one to convert over at like 32sec. once), but i reality, it doesn't really matter because the phone won't even use the full 30sec. ringtone anyways, i think the native length for a phone call duration without answering is around 25sec. or so (if you have voicemail activated and do not have an extended ringer set).

    Open iTunes and select your favourite mp3.And click left for getting info and click on the Options' tab and edit the Start Time and Stop time to be the part of the song that you want to make your ringtone.But make sure your ringtone should not be more than 30 seconds otherwise it will not work. finally click OK

    Congratulations I'm also new to iOS and my first iPhone the 5 white.

    Ringtones was a tough one but I also finally got it right. Couldn't do without my custom ringtones I've been using for years
