    There are apps for making ringtones... and doing so is only as difficult as one chooses to make it.

    This thread is a horse in need of a rendering plant...
    Not everyone is a tech person, some are just user
    This is just like android user tend to proud they can change their os interface completely, and apple user claim that ios simplicity is cool, ios user won't be bother to tweak their phone for better performance.

    The bottom line is, in ios, we are not allowed to simple choose the mp3 file from your phone, but need apps to create a new file for ringtone

    No way! BB users create ringtones??? I thought all you guys were too busy creating spreadsheets, sending thousands of emails per sec and just making the world a much more productive place.

    I wasn't sure BB phones even rang.

    I mean who acyually has time to talk when they're being super-hyper productive?

    Woow!

    I learned something today.
    Bb doesn't need to create ringtones, just select your music file and use it as ringtones

    And yes my bb do ring frequently, email and texting ;p spreadsheet is in my macbook lol

    Email is really important for me, unless my custs will complain for late response -___-

    It's a big deal if you don't have a computer to use and you'd like to have a few ringtones made with songs you've already paid for! But can't, because Apple wants you to pay twice for the same song!

    To people coming to iPhone from other platforms it is an issue. Not a big one but could put people off. For me, it did put me off for years because I thought, well what else are they going make me pay for that other platforms don't.

    You're allowed to make custom tones... it's quite easy.

    I disagree. I came from BlackBerry. I've used Windows and Android phones. Now I use an iPhone. It's not an issue for me.

    Day-um.

    U have been able to make ur own ringtones since the iPhone 3G. Do we really have to keep beating the same dead horse. If it's too hard or to troublesome for u to make ur own ringtones just don't. And go for something u consider easier.

    Didn't say it was. Charging twice for the same song is.

    Do most users even want custom ringtones? Whenever I'm in public and hear other people's ring or chirp a notification, it's almost always a built in tone (regardless of whether it's an iPhone, android, etc). In fact most of the time, it's the default sound it makes out of the box. So most users don't even switch among the available sounds installed on their device-at least as far as my experience goes.
    I like a custom ringtone. There are too many iPhones around and it gets confusing when you use the standard ringtones. I also work in a fairly loud environment and need a ringtone that would make your ears bleed to be able to hear it effectively. Right now my custom ringtone is one that I crafted from the most obnoxious portions of a dial up modem authentication handshake. Brings back memories every time my phone rings.

    For the few people that thought I was trolling (including moderators, to my surprise), I am not. I was expressing my opinion, while asking if there was an easier way than what I already read about.

    No need to defend Apple when there is no reason to. Overreaction to this thread is EXACTLY what I meant when Apple has some really pretentious apologists.

    Yeah, total troll and Apple basher here. Hmmm. 2 Macbook Pros, ipod touch, ipod classic, iPhone 5S, iphone 6 and iphone 6 plus. Oh, and added an iPad Air2 with Verizon today.

    I'm not what you thought, huh......

    You have all that Apple Gear and you are asking is it a easier way to do ringtones? That's even more disturbing.

    I just thought that, "I'm gonna use my 6+ tomorrow and see how hard it is to make a custom ring tone." My next thought was "Ugh, this is gonna be work."

    I've done it before a couple/few years ago and a painful experience doesn't jump into my memory.

    OK., read my post. I told you how i set ringtones for my wife's iPhone. Just to set the record straight, i'm not an Apple guy. I don't own an iPhone. I'm in iMore Forums when my wife or kids need help with their iPhones. I will say this however. I've always found the people in iMore Forums very helpful and friendly. This is from a man who owns a Nexus 5, and an LG G2.

    Most are, but there are usually one or two pricks that show up to threads like this. For some reason people love to have something to champion. Sometimes it is sports teams, branches of military service, operating systems, or multi-billion dollar companies. In all of those situations, the object or group being championed couldn't care less about those championing them, but we get worked up just the same.

    At one time I was for the openness of android, but now it is just as easy to jailbreak as to root. Part of me hopes Samsung will refresh webOS and bring it back to the frontline. I definitely want to see blackberry make a comeback and windows phone to rise in popularity. Things are starting to get stale and it is never good to only have one real competitor. I say the more competition the better.

    I'm for everyone using the platform that they like best. I know people who use an iPhone during the week, and Android on the weekend. To each his own. Please don't get me started on BlackBerry. I had a Bold 9000, which i loved, but when it got old, and i started questioning it's viability, the fanboys or fanbois in CrackBerry started hammering me big time. Now, if you want to talk about pompous a**holes, that's the forum that you go into.
