    I suddenly feel the desperate need to get a ringtone for my iPhone 4. My Mac is down (won't boot...) and I don't want to sync with Windows, so I need to get the ringtone on my device OTA. I want to make a song (Team Fortress 2) into a ringtone. How do I do that directly on my phone?

    Without a computer, the only way to add new ringtones to an iPhone is to purchase them via iTunes. In my opinion, buying ringtones from iTunes is crazy though, considering they are $1.29 and you could buy the full song for that price and make the song into a ringtone yourself.

    From iTunes, can you buy any song -> ringtone? Also, can you send yourself a ringtone via email and add it to your phone? I don't think so, but just to be sure.

    I very much doubt it. iTunes is your only option.

    I make mine with Garage Band 09, it is really easy and I get to use a 40 Second clip from a song, so I decide where the clip comes from and what part of the song to use.

    Simple and effective at making them, plus they are usually 40K to 3/4 of a MB in size which is better then 1-4 MB which is what a song takes up.

    If your iPhone is Jailbroken, you can go into Cydia and search for it. You might get lucky.

    depends

    If you are using a non-jailbroken iphone there are no other ways besides buying it in Itunes if you want to download it directly on the phone.

    But, if you are in your computer you could go to http://audiko.net and download the ringtone you want (already in iphone ringtone format) and just throw it into itunes and sync with the phone; they have almost everything for any taste! For you for example they have all of these for TF2: http://audiko.net/ringtone/Team+Fortress+2/

    Also if you own or buy a song you can cut the part you want directly in itunes and then you convert it to iphone ringtone format (M4R).


    If you are JB is way easier:
    1)(for me the best) UnlimTones is an app in cydia that someone created to download ringtones and sms from http://audiko.net directly into your iphone and you can then change them easily with no fuzz (with no editing by you of the original sms sounds)
    2)Or search for the ringtone in cydia directly

    People aren't reading the OP here.

    They state quite clearly that they can't sync with iTunes.

    Is not that the OP can't sync with iTunes, is that he doesn't want to sync in another computer (one w/ win)... The OP hasn't told us if he is jb or not and for example in my answer I explain both ways w/ and w/out a computer to have ringtones depending if they are jb or not... If JB use cydia search or unlimtones app (found in cydia), if not jailbroken the only way is buying it in itunes until the OP gets the mac fix or syncs w/ the dark side...

    The problem with the app is that after you make your ringtone, then you have to sync to a computer and then pass it through itunes to the ringtones and the OP has the mac down and doesn't want to sync to another computer.
