    the easiest way to get ringtones is to just use the latest version of garageband, you can edit and do a simple export to itunes as ringtone. But you need to have the ilife '08 version, otherwise you have to rename an aac output.

    I use WireTap Pro to record sounds like these then open the file in iTunes, Garageband or where ever.

    Nakko.com!!!!

    You create an account (very easy) and then upload songs that are already on your computer and edit them to what you want your ringtone to be. That's it!

    You could also search through everyone's "locker" and download their songs. It is a great website for ringtones, graphics, and games.

    I am using WinSCP for windows and this software allows you to view the iphone directory using WiFi. Then you just need to copy the ringtone into the ringtone directory of iPhone. I used a mp3 file (Shorten it to around 3-4 mins) then run a ringthis program to convert it to ringtone format. then rename the extension from m4a to m4r. copy it to the ringtone directory(Restart iPhone after this) and you now can select it from the sound under settings.:)

    I know this may be late, but the easiest way is to download the file from the link provided. Once it is on your computer, then you can easily add the aif file to iTunes, by simply dragging it to your open iTunes window (you may have to change the extension to aiff). Then convert it to mp3, by right-clicking (ctrl-click) on the file. Once converted, drag the new file to the desktop, open iToner, drag to the window, then hit sync. Viola, done.
