    Any ideas? I'm still using 7.4 but it won't let the custom ringtones work. Is there anyway around this?

    Custom Ring Tones still do work.
    To add a ring tone you need iTunes 7.4.0 and makeiphoneringtone.


    The way to do this is actually really dumb, and I dont know why this works.
    First make your ring tone and change the extenstion to .m4r
    Double click to add to iTunes. It will show up under the ring tones tab and if you sync your phone it will be in your ringtones list. At this point the ring tone will not play.
    Now, rename the ringtone in the finder back to .m4a and add it to iTunes using MakeiPhoneRingtone. It is going to add the same file into your ringtone tab a second time, but when you sync the phone there will only be one in the list on the phone and it will now play.
    I had 2 ring tones that I needed to delete and do a 2nd time for them to work, but I have added 9 ring tones to my phone with the 1.1.1 update installed.

    Just use your fav audio software and FTP them to your phone.
