    Default songs added to contacts for ring tone

    Is there a way to go into my contacts and add a song as a ringtone?

    When you select a contact there will be a tab right below their number that says ring tone. It will be set as default, but if you press it your ring tone options will come up.

    You need to convert the track to make it a ringtone, i've been using Audiko.net
    It is really easy to use & has a Top 100 so you can listen to what other people have been using & you can download those too.

    I hope this helps

    The way to do it inside iTunes

    1.
    Step 1

    Open iTunes.
    2.
    Step 2

    Find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.
    3.
    Step 3

    Listen to the song and find the part of it you want to use. The chorus may be a good place to start.
    4.
    Step 4

    Write down the start and stop times of the clip.
    5.
    Step 5

    Right-click the song and select "Get Info."
    6.
    Step 6

    Click the "Options" tab.
    7.
    Step 7

    Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Start Time" in the minutes:seconds (i.e. 2:01) format.
    8.
    Step 8

    Type in the end time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Stop Time." Make sure the ringtone is no more than 40 seconds long.
    9.
    Step 9

    Click "OK".
    10.
    Step 10

    Right-click your song again and select "Convert Selection to AAC". Wait for iTunes to convert your song. It will create a duplicate version.
    11.
    Step 11

    Right-click the ringtone and select "Delete".
    12.
    Step 12

    Click on the "Keep Files" button.
    13.
    Step 13

    Find the file. It's usually in your User folder under Music > iTunes > iTunes Music and under the band's name. It will have an extension of "m4a."
    14.
    Step 14

    Replace the "m4a" extension of your ringtone with "m4r". You can either double-click slowly to re-name your file, or right-click and select "Get Info" on a Mac or "Rename" on a Windows PC.
    15.
    Step 15

    Click "Use .m4r" or the PC equivalent when the system warns you that the change may affect the use of your file.
    16.
    Step 16

    Double-click the ringtone file. ITunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your iTunes Music Library.
    17.
    Step 17

    Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.
