    I realize you can pay for Ringtones on iTunes if you want a song, but if you're just looking to add to the library of ringtones similar to what came with the phone does anyone know of a site where one can download great free ringtones? I've looked around and can't find a thing.

    Better yet, if you've created one of your own (not from a song) and wouldn't mind sharing, that would be great too. I'm looking for something unique, but not annoying. Subtle.

    You can also right-click on the song you want to be made into a ringtone and then click convert to MP3 after you have set aside the start/stop time. Afterwards, change the file ending to m4r (which is the file extension used as ringtones in the phone). I'm sure that this method works though don't quote me on it....other than that, if you have a Mac, just use GarageBand though it doesn't work for songs bought on iTunes (though for some reason I was able to do it with Viva la Vida)...

    Thanks for that, but I'm looking for ringtones that are sounds, not songs. Thanks though!

    That's cool and all, but I'm not sure how much more I can emphasize that I am NOT looking for songs as ringtones, but rather just cool sounds (not songs!) that make good ringtones. Think about all the sounds the phone currently comes with for ringtones... I want some more stuff like that!

    Garageband has thousands of effects and textures you could use for iPhone ringtones. NOT JUST SONGS.

    Well I did say Free above, and I do not own Garageband, so again... does anyone know of any sites that contain galleries of quality ringtones, or has anyone built any of their own that they'd like to share?

    I'm really quite surprised that there's not more of a demand for this... I can't be the only one who finds the current library underwhelming, and hates songs are ringtones.. or am i? :)

    you can use iRinger at
    Its free and you convert any sound you want into a ring tone.
    So now any FREE .wav or .mp3 or .wma will be created to a ring tone for you.
    Simple too.

    Just do a GOOGLE search for cellphone ringtones and go nuts! Each one you find can be converted to an iPhone compatible version.

    Hi guys.

    I've just downloaded the iringer but its asking for a $10.00 donation before it gives me a 'key' to unlock hidden stuff.

    Why don't you do a search, I know there are threads with people that have included links to "professional sounding ringtones."

    #14 is free and awesome.

    You can download stuff that is already ready, or you can upload your own sound files and they will convert it into whatever format will work with the model of phone you have, including the iPhone. :)

    That site is rancid.

    Any site that promises "free" ring tones that you have to join, provide your cell number to, etc, is a P.O.S.

    #16 has some...songs and sounds have to sign up for an account and give your phone number, but they don't charge or spam. I've used it multiple times. They also have a "download for iPhone" button you can click that automatically downloads the ringtone as an .m4r saving you the trouble of converting it.
