Try iToner- easy and awsome! Free version can get a little anoying but the full is well worth tv price. And it's pretty seamless to use. Just my two cents but paying a few bucks for a quality product seems like a better idea than having to muddle through a bunch of steps to get a ringtone. With this you can create in GarageBand and sync to your phone- or just use whole songs.

I got fed up with waiting for ringtones in the UK store, as I'm on Windows, I couldn't use GarageBand. Then I found a great site, . Not only does it have a lot of ringtones, it also allows you to create your own. It's all set up to work with iTunes and the iPhone, once you've added ringtones to your locker, sync it with iTunes. The files appear as podcasts in iTunes so you need to sync the Nakko podcast with your iPhone - easy and free.

I've had my phone for two weeks and wanted to make ringtones from my mp3 collection. Windows XP user. I was a newb using itunes and the iphone but have a good knowledge of Windows.
Totally free. Download and install Audacity 1.3.6. Sourceforge. Google it!
Once program is installed.
Select ... Edit... Preferences... Import/Export...
Select "Download" FFmpeg library.
Follow the excellent instructions.
This gives you the option to export anything as a .m4a file.
Once you are setup open your mp3 file. Trim and edit your file as desired.
Select Export. Name your file and select save as type. "m4a"
I created a folder called "Ringtones" on my PC to store these. Once you have saved your ringtone browse to the folder. Rename the extension on your saved ringtone from "m4a" to "m4r". Start iTunes and drag and drop the ringtone with the m4r extension to your ringtones on iTunes. Sync and the ringtone should be available on your phone. Ensure under you sync settings that all is selected for ringtones.
There is a mac version of audacity so hopefully that should work about the same. Can't say since I don't have a mac.
Needless to say using Audacity you are not limited to mp3 files. You could easily use almost any audio file you find or even create to make a ringtone. I like that freedom.

Quick Walkthrough: How to get FREE iPhone ringtones
So Apple wants to charge you $1.00 for a song and another $1.00 for the song to be converted into a ringtone.. Are you really gonna stand for this?! I'll be telling you how to get free ringtones on your iPhone via your own Music Library or any YouTube video!
Here's how: Goto audiko.net and you'll be able to make full 20 sec ringtones (that's 5 sec more than Apple will allow at their 15 sec ringtones) using a YouTube URL or your own music library.. So choose your option then cut it and everything (it will step you through it completely) then choose at the end "iPhone version- or a similar option, then this is the cool part, it saves to your iTunes library under the "ringtones" tier! So just sync and it should be under your settings>general>sounds>ringtone
Thanks guys please reply if you try this.

I bought the iPhoneRingToneMaker app and I still love it...but I found out from my iPhone noob, but good friend, that you can make any ringtone for the iPhone by simply using Windows Movie Maker...I can't believe I didn't know that!
...maybe I'm the iNoob? :?
