      If you cannot figure out how to get more than one:

      when you have the file named "m4r" drag it to "Ringtones" in your iTunes Library finder folder. double click to open it and you will see under ringtones in your iTunes.

      That's not entirely true. I have 2 iphones one with 1.1.3 and one with 1.1.4. The 1.1.3 worked just beautifully with the workaround. I have 12 ringtones all individual without having to edit any settings or automatically synching. But with the 1.1.4 trying to add multiple ringtones causes all the ringtones to match the first one. it's not a firmware issue because i've seen this issue in 1.1.2 iphones


      I think what he meant was go to itunes>preferences>advanced>keep itunes library organized. thats the closest thing i see to it. i'm not sure if it works i need my bf's phone and computer first to test it and he's not here at the moment :(

      I have learned that iTunes update has eliminated the ability to add custom m4r files to the ringtone library, so u can no longer sync custom free ringtones to the iPhone. Has anyone figured out a way aroun this? if not, does anyone have an idea how i can uninstall and go back to just 7.6?

      I seem to have done everything up until the point where it won't let me change my m4a file into a m4r file. :(

      I'm using Windows...

      He was showing it on MAC...

      Anyone know how I can convert it??

    • nicknick Posts: 219

      to Jenny

      follow the list below and it should now show the file extension so you can now click on the file, it will highlight, and then change the file extension from m4a to m4r

      Start -> programs -> accessories -> windows explorer -> click on Organize -> folder and search options -> click View Tab -> and uncheck box "HIDE extensions for known file types

      After so many hours of trying, I have finally able to get all my custom ringtones into my iphone. That is, total of 18 ringtones. At first, i could just have 1, then the rest will be a multiple copies. I will check back what I've done and see if this is not just pure luck. Anyone had this encounter before?

      via Wordpress has free iphone ringtone downloads. no need to jailbreak. Just click the download ringtone for iphone, save it in a file on your computer, drag and drop ringtone into itunes ringtones and sync!

      I created an instruction video on YouTube that tells you how to create a ringtone for your iPhone which I've installed lots of them from the CD's that I've already bought. Just go to YouTube and do a search for WSNH and you'll see the video. Enjoy.

      HOW can I have/get more than 3 ringtones??? my iphone3g only lets me have 3 custom ringtones......yes i am a comp. :)

    • badasskkerbadasskker Posts: 3

      Oi lads,

      I just managed to upload my custom ringtone to my iPhone 3G on MacBookPro OSX 10.4.11 and iTunes 7.7.1 using a simple method:

      1.Get Mp3Trimmer (or whatever) and create your ringtone save it as mp3.

      2. Open on iTunes and convert it to AAC.

      3. Open that AAC file in iTunes using the option "Show in finder".

      4. rename it to ".m4r",

      Tada....that's all...iTunes will think it's a ringtone.

      I did upload it to my iPhone3G using drag&drop and having the "Manually manage music and videos" settings of my iPhone in iTunes "ON". As well as at the "Ringtones" option of the iPhone the "Sync Ringtones" option "OFF".

      It automatically added my new custom ring tones on top of the list of the standard ones.

      Problem is: The next song you add is replaced with the old one.

      Does anybody know any solution?

    • badasskkerbadasskker Posts: 3
      via Wordpress

      OK, I got it:

      You only need iTunes:

      1. Trim the song with Mp3Trimmer (for example)

      2. Double click and play it in iTunes.

      3. Convert it in iTunes to AAC

      4. Open enclosing the new AAC file.

      5. Delete the old ones from iTunes

      6. Rename the AAC to "m4r"

      7. Double click to play it in iTunes...drag&drop to iphone...BABOOM !

      I have created 21 custom iPhone ringtones from previously downloaded free ringtones, I was able to convert them into iTune recognizable format, m4r. My problem is that I could only sync 6 of them and no more. Any one with a similar limit problem? My second question is a how to create a ringtones from ones music library? iTunes does not seem to have music editing options or is there some trusted third party music editing software one can use??
      Help!!!!!!!!!!!! Otherwise I really enjoy the seamlessness of my iphone.
