    hello all

    I came across this post where Reader Comment #16 mentions: "The ringtone syncing functionality is ALREADY inside the iPhone, it just needs to be accessed"

    I understand that you can transfer your music files,ringtones, videos all by syncing your iphone with iTunes.

    But what does the above mentioned statement imply? :confused:

    I am currently working on a project which needs to assign customized ringtones to contacts, if a sync feature is available via programming, it would be really useful to me.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you

    You have no access to set ringtones via the SDK.

    there certainly is an official way to do this, but it would be accomplished by accessing undocumented private frameworks. if you plan to submit your app on the app store, it will get rejected for using such methods. generally, apps are sandboxed and can not change system settings.
