Wouldn’t it be great to choose your own iPhone ringtones, instead of letting Apple choose them for you? What if you like to designate a different ringtone for each one of your friends, and you have more than 25 friends? How do you get new iPhone ringtones onto your iPhone?

If you have a song library on your computer, you can create customized iPhone ringtones for your iPhone! All you need to use is your computer and iTunes – no hacking software required! It’s a bit complicated, but if you take it step by step you will end up with your own choice of ringtones!

Step 1. Open iTunes.

Step 2. Right click on whatever song you want to use to create your new iPhone ringtone. Select GET INFO.

Step 3. Go to your OPTIONS tab, and in the menu check the START TIME and STOP TIME checkboxes. Put in a 30 second or less segment of the song into these times. Click OK.

Step 4. Right click on your song segment. Select CONVERT SELECTION TO AAC.

Step 5. When it has finished converting your song segment, go to your iTunes music folder. Browse to your song segment, and drag it to your desktop.

Step 6. Now you want to delete your clipped song segment from your iTunes music folder.

Step 7. Back at your desktop, right click on your song, and click GET INFO.

Step 8. Change the extension at the end of the file name to .M4r.

Step 9. Double click the file. This will include it in your ringtones section of your iTunes library.

Step 10. SYNC your iPhone with iTunes.

That’s all you do! You now have a new, customized iPhone ringtone on your iPhone.
