    Hi Guys!

    How can I set my own songs as ringtones? It was very easy in Nokia handsets. You could select any song from music library and set as ringtone. But it seems like it is not as simple as that in iPhone.

    Any ideas?

    You need a software program to make iPhone ringtones from your MP3 songs and to transfer the ringtones into iPhone.

    I use Ace Ringtones Maker for iPhone software.

    It takes only one minute to make new mobile ringtones and transfer to iPhone. It supports many file formats, not just mp3. You can also apply special sound effects like fade-in, fade-out, echo and volume enhancement etc.

    You can create unlimited free cell phone ring tones out of your own music library and don't have to buy anything from Apple iTunes store.

    You don't need to unlock or jail-break your iPhone.

    I found it very easy to use and great value for money.

    You can download free trial version of Ace Ringtones Maker for iPhone
    from

    http://iphone.ace-mobile-software.com/free-ringtones-maker-for-iPhone-mobile-phone.php


    and buy the full version only if you are satisfied.

    In iTunes, right click a song and select "Create AAC Version" (or something similar). Then open up your SSH program and navigate to the iTunes Music Folder on your computer. Find the song you just created (should have .m4a extension I believe) and copy it into /private/var/stash/Ringtones and change the extension to .m4r. I believe this works. Using iTunes, there may also be a way to clip the song so you can have just a certain section.
