    i know this will probably get lost in all the new iphone news, but i just got an iPhone 3G, and i want to set an mp3 as my ringtone and voicemail, the irish itunes store does not let you make ringtones from songs, for some reason, but it have 2 mp3's that are ringtones already, can i set them as ringtones on my iphone or no?

    thanks guys!

    I see you're using a mac so it's dead easy.

    You need to open up GarageBand, drag the mp3 across into the application, then export it as a ringtone..

    Hope that helps.
