    I was playing around with the ringtone settings and i just couldnt find the standard 'ring' (not that I want it). go and watch an iPhone commercial on youtube, and towards the end of the ad it ringed like a normal phone, and of course, it's not available in the iPhone.

    Apple's making fake ads hey? LOL just kidding.

    Not sure what specific ad you're referring to, but I think you might find the user in the ad is dialling out and the tone you hear is the outgoing call sound you hear after you dial (i.e. when the other person's phone is ringing, not yours).

    it's one of the first things I noticed when I got my phone in June. it's a standard ringer the ad people put in, though I wish apple would include such a ringtone (what phone doesn't?). marimba is fun and all, but I just want to hear a phone ringing.

    almost every character on the Chuck tv show has an iPhone and their ringtones are all old Ericsson ringers. I guess the sound editors just grab any stock ringer they have on file.

    another discrepancy i noticed and others probably as well is that when some one calls it shows the contact picture in the bar on the top. when i have incoming calls it puts the pic on the whole background...including outgoing calls. But when i dial my own number it displays it like in the commercial..weird

    it depends on where the pic is added from. if you set the contact photo on the phone it shows up as wall paper. if it is added in say address book on a mac, it will show up like they have it in the commercial. i hate that i wish i could pick. i like the way it shows in the ad a lot better but i usually add my photos on the phone

    If you go into the sound effects in garage band there is an effect called "Cell Phone Ringing" and it sounds almost identical to the one in the ads. I put it on the phone and it also sounds louder than most of the other ringtones.

    thats not what they are talking about, they want the ringer at the end of the ad, not the song in the ad

    I Googled it and was able to find it. I have it installed on my phone and it works well (by renaming the file to .m4r, it makes it into a ringtone).

    If you search hard enough, you'll find it.

    FYI the "cell phone ringing" effect file is here:

    /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/iLife Sound Effects/Work - Home/Cell Phone Ringing.aif

    Drag into Garageband, convert etc. and you're away.

    I was able to buy the iPhone commercial...

    online, then take it to GB and "poof" I use the ringtone as my Default Ringtone. Took it to Macworld and everybody was really impressed with it. Make sure you turn the volume up while in GB! :cool:

    Thanks - I've been trying to find this for ages.

    I've converted it to m4r format and reposted it here for convenience.

    I'm glad I found this thread. Thumbs up.

    While I think you guys have indeed found the exact ringtone, I wonder if the commercial version isn't in a slightly higher pitch?
    I've played back several vids on YouTube and the pitch seems a tad higher.
    That said, if you play back the m4r file, you'll notice that it is polyphonic...the higher pitched sound can be heard if you listen closely.
    I wonder if the tv ads (tv audio being low def) simply play back one voice from the recording?

    Meh, I like it ;)
