    Hope so, I'm so bored of all the ones on the phone now and don't have the patience to look through websites to download new ones

    No.

    If you're unwilling to add your own then you will have to suffer with the ones you are bored with.

    If you're truly bored of them and it's an issue, you would put in the effort to add custom ones yourself. It's pretty easy to do.

    - Find the sound file you wish to use. (If its a certain portion of a song you will have to cut it down to the section you want. GarageBand can do this)

    - open it in iTunes.

    - Right click and select "Convert to AAC" (you may need to change import settings in Preferences to AAC instead of MP3 to see this option)

    - Once converted to AAC find it in Finder.

    - Right click the AAC file and select "Get Info".

    - Change the extension from .m4a to .m4r (it will ask you if you're sure, select yes)

    - Open the newly changed .m4r in iTunes and it will show under "Tones" instead of in your music.

    - Sync Tones and then you'll be able to select it as an option on the phone.
