Create an iPhone ringtone – Huzzah!

One thing that annoyed me about the iPhone is the lack of ability to use any tune as a ringtone. I bought them, I want to use them!

The argument is that the writer didn’t licence the song for use as a ringtone… but I can play the song as many times as I want if I don’t use it as a ringtone! Crazy… and the law originated in America… and as the iPhone is American, it suffers for it.

iTunes does allow some songs to be converted if you bought them from the iTunes library.. and if you pay a bit more money…. OR you can convert up to 30 seconds of an iTune as I have shared HERE.

The method is a bit long winded on your first go, but it’s pretty simple after a few goes. You might need a Facebook account to view it – but don’t worry, I’ll be posting the full thing here in a few days anyway. If you can’t open the link, then try THIS ONE!

    Lucas,
    Thanks for the tips to create iPhone ring tones without having to pay Apple for it. But unfortunately, the .m4r file couldn’t be dragged into the iTunes Library. Apple must have shut down this loophole.

    I’ll have to look into that – Cheers.

    I know I had trouble doing it to start with. Rebooting seemed to clear it up, but I shall see if there is some lock out the Aplle have now added.

    Well, A quick glance and I had no problems converting a couple of tracks. If anyone has any issues, then please let me know and I’ll try and find another free way around it!
