Apple - please, please let us use normal MP3s and such for ringtones. Not all of us want R Kelley shouting out at us when we get a call in a business meeting.

You know, I would think that policy of charging for the song and then charging o use it as a ringtone would violate the fair use doctrine of the current copyright law. After all the fair use doctrine allows me to change the form of copyrighted music so that I can play it on a different device. This dates back to the cassette recorder. Courts have held that making a tape recording of an album is a permitted act because it is still the original purchaser listening to the music.

Are they gonna put out a fix for the new Itunes version with the ringtone tab?
Everytime you sync your iphone to the new Itunes version all ringtones transfered with Iphoneringtonemaker are gone :(

So I finally downloaded this program and am in LOVE!
BUUUUUT.....
Why are some of my songs being played so loud and distorted? After you create your song you get a second window asking if you want to add the ringtone to your phone and it even allows you to preview the song. Well, after previewing it and even adding it to my phone it plays the song loud and distorted. Also, I believe it's only those songs that I don't get the "advanced" tab showing up.
Anyone else have this problem? What am I doing wrong?
