    Step1
    Open iTunes.
    Step2
    Find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.
    Step3
    Listen to the song and find the part of it you want to use. The chorus may be a good place to start. (40 seconds long or less)
    Step4
    Write down the start and stop times of the clip. (40 seconds long or less)
    Step5
    Right-click the song and select "Get Info."
    Step6
    Click the "Options" tab.
    Step7
    Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Start Time" in the minutes:seconds (i.e. 2:01) format.
    Step8
    Type in the end time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Stop Time." Make sure the ringtone is no more than 40 seconds long.
    Step9
    Click "OK".
    Step10
    Right-click your song again and select "Convert Selection to AAC". Wait for iTunes to convert your song. It will create a duplicate version.
    Step11
    Right-click the ringtone and select "Delete".
    Step12
    Click on the "Keep Files" button.
    Step13
    Find the file. It's usually in your User folder under Music > iTunes > iTunes Music and under the band's name. It will have an extension of "m4a."
    Step14
    Replace the "m4a" extension of your ringtone with "m4r". You can either double-click slowly to re-name your file, or right-click and select "Get Info" on a Mac or "Rename" on a Windows PC.
    Step15
    Click "Use .m4r" or the PC equivalent when the system warns you that the change may affect the use of your file.
    Step16
    Double-click the ringtone file. ITunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your iTunes Music Library.
    Step17
    Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.

    I usually just use garageband on my mac

    I would advise using a combo of mxtube and vringtones(in vwallpaper)
    And set a music video of any length as your tone

    I think there is converter software you can buy. If you have a mac you can drag a song into garageband find a part you want cut down to 40sec. then click convert to ringtone and you done.

    it looks complicated but once you do it one or twice it takes a couple minutes top to convert a song

    you can set full songs as ring tones on the iPhone 3g anyway. Why do people keep saying that it has to be 40 seconds or less??
