    hey all

    got my verizon iphone, set it all up with itunes, loaded all of my songs in ipod and all is good.

    now, ringtones, i am having a hard time getting those in the iphone, out of the 6 i am trying to load on to the phone only one gets in, YES, all 6 are checked.

    How do you go about changing them to .m4r?

    What OS are you using?

    In Windows (7), you need to go to My Computer, Organize, Folder and Search Options, the View tab, and make sure "Hide extensions for known file types" is NOT checked. Then you go to where the .M4A file is located and change it to a .M4R file.

    I have to say, I am super frustrated with how difficult it is to put ringtones on the iPhone. It shouldn't be so difficult. Ugh.

    Win7, thanks!

    So that's all you need to do to make and use a custom ringtone? No jailbreak required?

    There is all a custom ringtone designer app that you can create 30 sec ringtones with and then sync through itunes..... Very very simple. If you use the above method make sure to convert to ACC before changing the file extension. Then drag and drop. that's also very easy!

    Good luck!

    Yes, this.

    But it goes for any version of Windows. I have XP at home.

    For those of you who understand that ringtones work the same on the iPhone - whether it's Verizon or AT&T - there is an entire forum dedicated to ringtones and wallpaper. There are lots of threads there explaining how to make them, how to use them, and offering ringtones to download.

    It's time y'all stopped creating new threads in the VZW forum that have nothing to do with anything carrier specific.

    These directions are easy to follow and you don't need a special app nor do you need to email it to yourself. These directions should be stickied for easy access.

    It's not that difficult... but it's Apple's way of trying to sell you a ringtone vs having create your own...

    Except that the ringtones that came through iTunes show up as .m4a music files and still won't be taken as a ringtone even after changing the extension to .m4r

    I did have good luck converting some old .mp3 ringtones and getting them to work. I now have a Pre ringtone!

    try using iRinger, it can save the file as an .m4r file for you. You can find it at http://www.iringer.net. It is free but to use the extra options you have to donate.
