    I'm not a big fan of ringtones made from songs. Are there any non-musical ringtones available to purchase on iTunes? I looked around for a bit and couldn't find any.

    Unfortunately there aren't any at iTunes but Rogue Amoeba has a great free utility for making them called MakeiPhoneRingtone.

    That's a useful utility. Does anyone have anyideas where I could source a non-musical ringtone. I don't like ones which are songs and I'm starting to get embarrased by my 24 "ctu" ringtone :eek:

    Note that if you have access to the latest version of GarageBand that you can make your own ringtones and send them to your iPhone very easily. So music, non-music, audio from a movie, whatever you want. If you can get it into GarageBand you can get it onto your iPhone.

    I am with you guys about the musical ringtones. I have a few but rarely use them. I have a friend at work that has a different ringtone for everyone in his phone and they go off when he texts. Its like a really bad DJ sometimes at work.

    Not only that, Garage Band has several sound effects built into its library. Not a lot, but it's a start.

    And to whoever asked, yes, Mac only.

    The problem is finding a source (in whatever format) of these non-musical tones. I'm sure I can convert them into m4r's, but I don' know where to look for them in the first place..:confused:

    While I don't mind musical ringtones too much, Apple doesn't give us a whole lot of choice as far as built in ringtones on the phone. A car horn, a dog barking, crickets?!?!? What were they thinking? Like I want to hear my alarm clock going off every time someone calls me...Luckily I like the "Marimba" tone enough to use it.
