    geez. I just installed 7.4 yesterday.

    I bet this is to address the problems that people were having with syncing after installing 7.4, although I don't recall having any problems yesterday.

    Yep, iTunes 7.4.1 breaks the custom ringtones. Funny how they can get a "fix" out for this in less than 24 hours eh? :rolleyes:

    Does 7.4.1 break iToner 1.0.1?

    ouch, that is a hard blow to us little poor people. When are we going to be able to buy them? anyone know?

    Also, iToner seems to work fine. I sync'd my iPhone, then sync'd it with iToner, unplugged the iPhone, plugged it back in, and sync'd with iTunes. Took it off the charger and the ringtones are still there. So far so good.

    So, it sounds like we should avoid updating for now, if we want to enjoy the free ringtones for the time being.

    Hmm ... whatever. I didn't like how it named the ringtones anyway.

    Apparently not. SFTP still works, though. :D

    I don't feel like restoring my phone and starting all over to see if the AppTapp installer works with 7.4.1.

    that's an easy fix. I'd just copy the ringtone to my desktop, change the name, and drag it into iToner. Not a whole lot of work. Hopefully they don't go after iToner next, but I'm sure they will.

    Ahhh! This is like the week of iPhone craziness, and of course it has to be the week I'm waiting for my own iPhone to be delivered. Thanks for ruining the fun Apple!

    Well, 99¢ is pretty reasonable for a ringtone, considering that they're almost $4 each for my current phone. Still, Apple shouldn't come and ruin the fun. :(

    iTunes gets the name info out of the ID3 tags. No matter what you change the filename it, it will always show up as the song title in the ID3 tags. I didn't like that. I also don't like using payware like iToner. I will continue dragging ringtones over with SFTP.

    No it's not. I can play music through the speaker on my phone for free. Why does it cost $.99 to make it play that music when the phone rings? What is the difference?!?! Ringtones should be free.

    If I'm in a band and I record a song, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. It's my song. Why won't Apple let me set it as a ringtone? It's total BS.

    WHOA, am I tripping, or did I see closed captioning as one of the new features of iTunes 7.4?!

    About time!!!

    I was talking about using iToner, I think you might have miss understood me. I take the mp3 I want, drag it to my desk top, instead of being ctu24ringtone.mp3, I change it to ctu.mp3. When I put it in iToner and sync it up with my iPhone it works perfectly. I understand you don't like to use payware as you stated, I don't know why, but everyone is different, but you can try it for free. Its worth a try to see what I'm talking about. But that's up to you.
