    No, you cannot. You can use only ringtones from list iPhone you offer. But you can create new ringtones with iTunes and then use on your iPhone.

    Thnx for your reply. I went to the link and did what was asked, but i couldn't change the .m4a to .m4r, I had to add it from my desktop.
    After that I tried adding the song to itunes, but there is nothing called "ringtones" on my itunes.
    Can u help with this please?
    Thank You.

    This isn't going to help if you aren't on a mac but if you are:

    Go to garage band, put together whatever you want your ringtone to be, and then hit "share" and "send ringtone to iTunes". It'll then show up in iTunes and when synced with your phone it'll be an option for assigning to contacts or as your general ringtone.

    Hope that helps.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    You should have folder called Ringtones under iTunes Music. If not, make one and add it there. However, you should've been able to add it by just dragging it into iTunes when it's open.
