    So I got an iPhone 4S today, and I cannot get my custom ringtones on my new phone! I used Audacity to convert my mp3 ringtones to .m4a, then renamed the extension to .m4r (at least that is what Mr. Internet said to do), but I cannot get them added to iTunes! I have double-clicked them and they play just fine in iTunes, I have tried to drag them into the Ringtones folder, I have tried to manually add the RIngtones folder into iTunes. Nothing. FRUSTRATING.

    Anyone have any ideas? What am I doing wrong?

    TIA.

    i got my mom a 4s to start learning on, cannot get customized ringtones installed, spent almost 2hrs. My Blackberry Z10 took a [redacted] 4sec to install and set the ringtone. Will never give up my smartphone for a dumbphone...
