Self Gloss (and Help) Thread: IPhone 4

Sun Oct 16, 2011 4:35 pm

I managed to join the iPhone club. Yesterday a friend of mine upgraded to the iPhone 4S so I bought his iPhone 4 (it's literally like new. No scratches, no nothing).

However, as with any new cellphone, I'd like to customize it with ringtones and this is where I'm running into a bit of trouble. I've been following the instructions on how to add one and so far, nothing.

Can anyone with an iPhone tell me what I need to do in order to add ringtones?

The official way is to buy them from the iTunes Store, but you can make them yourself relatively easily:

I've done this dozens of times now and still nothing. Of course, I can always buy them trough the iTunes Store, but what if I want a custom made one? For instance, my ringtone on the other phone I had was the Price is Right theme song (don't ask)...I don't think iTunes has that one.

Do your home-made ringtones show up in iTunes in the "Ringtones" section? Can you play them there with a doubleclick? Have you kept them short enough to fall into the rigntone time limit?

Have you enabled ringtone synching in iTunes for your iPhone?

I've just re-checked here: It still works, with the newest iTunes and the newest iPhone. Doesn't look like they've plugged that back door yet.
