    Now that we can create our own ringtones in garageband, dont you think it'd be a great idea to have a way to share ringtones online and preview and download ringtones that others have made? kinda like the list of applications/widgets/iphone web apps currently on the apple website. maybe they could be distributed through itunes?:)

    most ringtones people make won't be "legal" ... its a stupid law that i don't agree with ... but due to the fact, I doubt we'll see apple joining in on this..

    If you have a .mac account you can share your GarageBand made ringtones. I just posted a public folder download page using the homepage feature on the .mac page. My friend who is using a PC then went on and downloaded them and iTunes automatically imported them as ringtones and then synced them to his iPhone.

    Would I get in any kind of trouble for sharing my download page with the ringtones I made from songs I have?

    Here's the deal... I currently have iLife '05 on my Mac but everything else is current. Meaning that I am running Leopard, iTunes 7.5, etc.

    Now, does anyone know if I have a friend who has iLife '08 make a ringtone for me that I will be able to easily import the ringtone onto my Mac and iTunes will then be able to recognize it and send it to my iPhone?

    You could have Windows and it'd still work... Try this one: CTU Ringtone from "24".

    Double-click it and it should add to your ringtones folder.

    If not, drag it onto the iTunes icon and it should add to your ringtones folder.

    Then sync.

    Here's another, for those people you don't want to know are calling. Silence.

    well its not legal. So you can ride that risk if you want to... The RIAA has a lot of power.
