3. select tones from the top left drop down list in itunes.
4. assuming my ringtone.m4r is on my desktop - i double clicked it - then it showed up in tones pane. Import to library DID NOT do it.
5. Sync as normal to the iphone.
5a - you may need to enable sync of tones if asked.
6. ringtone showed as expected and i could select it.

thank you

Upload your song(s), choose the starting point and number of seconds you want the ringtone to be, and boom, it's done. Synch your iPhone with the Tones on iTunes, and return to your life, already in progress.
I just downloaded it, doesn't seem very intuitive. Having a hard time with the drag and drop within Itunes.

One question - how do you recommend getting an mp3 into itunes to begin with? I assumed that highlighting a folder under 'playlists' and then going to 'file', 'add file to library' would add the mp3 to the folder previously highlighted under playlists, but that isn't the case.

WOW, itools is slick. Pretty much what I'd been looking for as a nice interface between Windows and my iphone. Thanks very much.

This is an old post and I've already figured it out a long time ago, haha. But thank you for the link. I was just using SharePod with my old iPod yesterday, and my friend has said that program won't work with his iPhone. I'll tell him to try iTools. I'm also gonna try it out myself and see if I like it

Thank you so much! This really answered the question for me, and it worked like a charm! I wish Apple would make things less complicated, but it seems like each version of I-tunes gets *more* complicated! LOL.

Thanks again

Once that is set, and you perform a sync, the tones should be transferred to your phone.

Hope that helps!
