    Wonder why Apple is so strict over the text tone.

    Because they understand that some people put very ANNOYING text tones on all their other phones? I really hate when people have whole songs for a text tone. Then they are texting away and every 3 minutes it starts playing music. Text tones shouldn't be any longer then 5-10 seconds. Simple, short. Something you and the people around you are going to be able to stand hearing multiple times in a row.

    Fair point, just would have been nice if they had created an app that shortened the song to allow you to edit the song to a 5 to 10 second clip to use as a text message tone

    To me, a text tone should be 1-2 seconds. I am not in high school anymore, so having a song go off for a text is annoying and makes the person look like an idiot. I realize THEY care that they got an SMS, but everyone around them doesn't need to know.

    Agreed. Even if they allowed us to change them I'd still use the one I use now. I like it. It's not annoying.
