Make Your Own Ringtones For iPhone

If you want anything other than the vanilla ringtones that ship with the iPhone, Apple tries to make you buy them from them. Yeah right. I thought about jailbreaking my iPhone, but for ringtones there are much less drastic measures. I found some detailed instructions on how to turn your own music into ringtones. There are a couple of caveats: 1)you can't use music that is DRM-protected; 2)the resulting ringtones can be no longer than 30 seconds. I found that out the hard way, after wearing a hole in the wall with my head for waaaaay too long. The instructions tell you how to extract only part of songs, but they failed to mention that there is a 30-second maximum.

Eric figured out how to "unlock" the songs and turn absolutely anything into a ringtone. You should ask him...
