    I'm using PC and I convert through itunes(mp3 to ACC, rename file from m4a to m4r) but I edit the music in Wavepad, which is free. It's full music editing software that allows me to crop, amplify, adjust via the equalizer and fad in/out among other capabilities.

    Hi,

    I found a way in Ubuntu (9.10) to put ringtones on my iPhone 3GS... It's a bit complex to do it manually, but it's possible

    1 - Mount your iPhone as a regular USB media storage (See wwwDOTubuntugeekDOTcom/how-to-connect-iphoneipod-touch-using-usbin-karmicjauntyintrepidhardy.html)
    2 - Once your iPhone is mounted, get any MP3 and transcode it into mp4 format. Put the extention as .m4r

    Using gstreamer from the command line:

    gst-launch filesrc location=test.mp3 ! decodebin ! audioconvert ! faac ! filesink location=test.m4r
    Take a not that Gstreamer will give you the lenght in nanosec...
    3 - Locate the file Ringtones.plist
    4 - Make a backup of Ringtones.plist just in case...
    5 - Edit the file using any text editor
    6 - Open /media/iphone/iTines_Control/iTunes/Ringtones.plist
    7 - Add this block for your mp3 file:

    <key>TEST.m4r</key>

    <dict>

    <key>GUID</key><string>07D44991A45EA9F3</string>

    <key>Name</key><string>Test</string>

    <key>Total Time</key><integer>118000</integer>

    </dict>
    Note that "Total Time" is the lenght in milliseconds of your mp3. Also, you will have to generate a randon GUID (Put any numbers you want)...

    8 - Copy your mp3 renamed as TEST.m4r in the folder: /media/iphone/iTines_Control/Ringtones


    And there you have a new custom ringtone for your iPhone. You do not need to jailbreak your iPhone using the tools mentionned in the webpage. But if it is, simply put the files using the SSH server if you want.

    As I said, this is a bit geekie, but it works. I will have to think about making that automated using a script or an application.

    Hope you enjoyed!

    Default iRinger

    I have to agree with everyone who mentioned this before me, iRinger is the easiest way to go. I just posted about it recently on my blog (applesauceblog.com), I use it and love it!

    I tried out iringer tonight and it was fast and efficient. However, the volume is much lower than my other ringers, any thoughts?

    I suspect it has to do with the volume of the sound you use. Try using the boost (volume) feature. Also, make sure you don't have "fade" checked.

    sorry to barge in but i'm new to this and i'm encountering a difficulty. i followed all your steps, got the .m4r files, they play on itunes, i synced with the iphone but now they don't show up on the sounds list and on the iphone list they are as if blocked.
    is there any reason for this?

    Hi tsines, since this is an 11 page thread, we don't know whose/which steps you followed. Could you give us some more info on what you've done?

    I ended up getting quite a few from zedge and converting them on iRinger, played some of the settings and lengths, and ended up blowing an entire afternoon lol. It's all good, been stuck in the house sick so at least I did something productive.

    You only get 30 seconds. The phone doesn't ring any longer than that, so there's no need for a full song ringtone.

    I use Audiko to convert my voice recordings.

    I also use it for all my ringtones protected or not.
