Is there a limit to how many custom ringtones you can have on your iPhone 3.0?

    All my ringtones are under 40 seconds and 5 of the 6 new ones I just made does not sync at all...I was wondering why?

    and also, can someone confirm how long max. can a ringtone be?

    EDIT:
    1) yes all of them are .m4r or else they wouldnt be listed under the Ringtone Playlist...
    2) yes I have always selected 'All Ringtones'

    They have to be .m4r and this is a silly question, but do you have "sync all ringtones" swlected? If your choosing them indivually, make sure they're checked and sync again.

    so i guess the limit is 40 ring tones? i really don't see how anyone can find out unless they just convert all there music into ring tones. i barley have 3 custom ring tones that i use regularly

    No, the previous poster means do they all have the check mark next to them in the ringtone list? Not on the iphone section, on the itunes section they need to be all checked. otherwise they will not sync even if you select "Select all ringtones"
    Sincerely,

    You probably already know this...

    Did you make sure to remove them from the 'music' section playlist? If you don't do this, they won't sync right.

    I read somewhere that it was 45 seconds, but I always use 30 seconds for mine, so I can't confirm that. Anyway, why would you need anything longer than 30 seconds? Especially 40 seconds? You should've answered the phone by then, and they just take up extra space for no reason.

    So, are you still having problems getting all your ringtones on the iPhone? I would think there'd be no limit to the amount of ringtones, but I'd be interested to know if there IS actually a limit.

    no like i said there is a bug in 3.0 O.S; APPLE, but to fix it, you just rename/edit the song on Ringtone Playlist and sync!

    as to limit, I really doubt it!
