    I know there are sites to make iPhone ringtones, but those do not sound good on the phone itself. What is the process of making a ringtone directly through iTunes, but not paying for it? I'm on PC so I can't use Garageband. If any of you can help, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    first open itunes select song. get info select start and stop times. convert to aac then use makeiphoneringtone free here http://rogueamoeba.com/freebies/ you might have to burn a normal music cd to strip copy protection before it will convert to aac. it is a little work but you can make any song a ringtone even if you imported it from a cd. that tool is for mac find one similar.

    nakko.com works quite nicely, and the ringtones sound as clear as the source that they were made from.

    The method I use is:

    - Drag MP3 into windows movie maker.
    - Edit to the section you want
    - Save to desktop (it will save as wma)
    - Import to iTunes as m4a
    - Copy the m4a file to desktop, and edit the file extension to m4r
    - Delete the m4a from iTunes, and import the m4r

    Whole process takes 2 mins for all the importing, plus however long it takes you to edit the song properly.
