    GarageBand in iLife lets you create custom ringtones for your iPhone. Thats free with every Mac.

    I used Audiko and the songs are showing up in my ringtones folder on itunes, but not on my phone. Any help? Also, how do I use these for SMS? Is there anyway?

    Cant use ringtones as SMS tones.
    Unless you jailbreak and replace the preset tones thru SSH.

    GarageBand so far is the best method. You can use songs, or you can use the included "random sounds" :)

    I can't figure out how to make ring tones in garage band OR iTunes. Help? I don't mind paying in itunes, but I don't recall how.

    Garage band sounds good, but how do I get the Audiko ringtones that are on itunes in my ringtones folder onto my iphone. They wont sync?

    I actually use iTunes & a little manuvering in Windows' folder options to get free ringtones (I use Windows Vista as i have PCs). This video on YouTube (as there is many like this if you don't like this particular one showing the same type of steps) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BImVPLNbGVU is a little tutorial of how to make ringtones straight from the .mp3 files you may already have. I've made so many, i change my default ringtone every day to shake things up a bit and actually use all the ones i've made (25 in all). I'm not sure if this will help you, as i don't know if you're using a PC or Mac, but hopefully this will help someone.

    :D

    There has been a couple step by step tutorials posted on MR on how to create ringtones from iTunes. I'm suspecting the MROOGLE search engine is down and Arn is working on it ;)
    Well I'll be damned, MROOGLE is working, I searched for 'create ringtone' and got 117 results with lucky # 13 being that guide i was referring to.

    myxer.com has a large number of iPhone-optimized ringtones also.

    Just a reminder that there is a length limit to ringtones you make. I don't have any idea what it is though. Unless of course you jailbreak, then you can do pretty much whatever you want.

    30 seconds, and honestly if you let your phone ring longer than that... You're a douche. Haha
