    I have a question, if you make a custom one, and it goes off, and you open the txt, will it stop playing or does it play out until the end?

    if you don't feel like downloading anything, just go to www.audiko.net and you can either upload the song yourself, and choose which part you want as the ringtone, or you can copy and paste the url where the song is at, like if you want a youtube video as your ringtone, you just upload the url onto the site, and then choose which section.. super easy, and you don't have to download anything..and the fact that you can take the audio from a video is cool...and ontop of that, there is already a good selection of ringtones..

    anyone have any sms tones they'd like to share? i want to gather all the custom sms sounds and make a huge zip file full of them.

    remember though keep them short and sweet.

    For all of those who don't want to go through the tedious process of SSHing into your phone (either from laziness or ineptitude) try this:


    If your phone is jailbroken, you can download a program in Cydia called ToneFX. After you download the program, you can then go to any Mac or PC and download the computer version for FREE. This simple program on the comp opens up an idiot-proof mp3 loader that can cut any song into a ringtone OR SMS tone of your choice.

    Then simply plug your iPhone into the computer, and it is automatically sent to your phone. That's right, no SSH, making a ringtone through any myriad of ways, finding the ringtone or SMS directory, and praying you don't screw something up.

    Have to try this! Its great. ToneFX

    Nope the number of available tones is limited to six because your only changing the sound, as apposed to adding a new sound I the list.

    Songs can't be from iTunes otherwise it won't work.
