One of the most annoying things to me as a user, is the fact that I’m not able to assign my music files as ringtones. The “offical” way of adding more ringtones, is by buying them from Apple, however, you can generate them yourself, using your iPhone and a computer. To do so, you need an app that will create the ringtones for you, I use RMakerPro, but you may of course choose whichever you want. Here’s how I do it:
- Open RMakerPro
- Follow the instructions in the app, finding the start of the ringtone you want to set, and how long you want it to be
- Once happy with your selection, save the ringtone
- You can either send the ringtone to yourself using email, or download it from the RMakerPro app when the phone is connected to your computer
- Drag the files into iTunes
- Connect your phone to your computer
- In Sync settings, choose to sync ringtones
Once the ringtones have been synced, you may assign ringtones as default, or to specific contacts as detailed here. Keep in mind, the ringtones can have a maximum length of 40 seconds, or 30 seconds if you want to use them as tones for messages.
