The ringtones that i made before i jailbroke, and are in iTunes, are also in ToneFX. The problem is that i can't apply them as ringtones to the various catagories that are offered. Right now, i can only use the various ringtones that came with ToneFX. That's why i assumed that i had to buy the app, in order for it to work fully with my own ringtones.

I came from android so this stuff was(is) still very confusing to me, but in a nutshell, rigntones are ringtones and alerts are alerts - meaning you cant set a ringtone as an alert. You have to convet the ringtone to the alert you want then put the alert on the phone and select it.
Here is a guide that I used - it looks confusing but once you do it its pretty easy.
Heres how I do it - I use the pc tonefxs to create and name the alert, then use winscp to put it in the proper directry(post #5) then select it in tonefxs on the phone as my alert. Works like a charm and well worth the 5 bucks to keep my sanity.

There's a difference between what is created as a ringtone, and what is to be a tone for other alerts.
You can get a program for your computer called ToneFXs Creator - and that will take an MP3 file, and convert it to what it needs to be in order to be used as an alert sound - and facilitate getting the file to your phone... works great. I got my computer's custom mail sound on my phone now this way.
