    Thats right folks you can create your own ringtones using your own mp3's in itunes now... before you could only create them if you bought a song from the app store...

    Interested? This is how you do it... it is really easy to do!


    Apple added iPhone ringtones to iTunes late last year, but only if you purchased them. After struggling against users for some time, Apple finally started allowing non-DRM'd ringtones in iTunes. This decision spawned quite a few solutions for creating ringtones from songs that you already have. One of the lesser known methods is using iTunes itself.
    The method is a bit tedious the first time through, but CNET's Bryan Thomas has come to the rescue with this nice step-by-step video.

    There are a few things to remember when creating ringtones in this way. First of all, any tracks that you bought from iTunes with DRM on them will not work. If you purchased iTunes plus songs, then you should be fine. Additionally, if your ringtone is more than 40 seconds long, iTunes won't accept it.

    Go to the website below and watch the movie Bryan Thomas show a nice step-by-step video in how to make them....

    You can also use full songs as ringtones/alarms.

    Obviously as a ringtone the full song won't play but a full song is good for use as alarm instead of hearing the ~30sec repeat.

    Just drop the full song.m4r into /System/library/ringtones/

    While in there you can also delete any stock ringtones you have no use for.
