How do I get ringtones for my iPhone?

I want to download songs for ringtones for my iPhone, but can't find anywhere that can tell me how to do it.  Does anyone know?  I'm sick of the standard tones!

 

 

Many thanks!

If you don't mind paying for ringtone software, this website has a good ringtone maker:

I bought it long ago before you were able to make ringtones for the iPhone with iTunes. You pay for it once and can make unlimited ringtones, even with songs you haven't purchased from iTunes.

LOL!!! don't even care so much about making music or songs for my ringtone. I just want my phone to ring with a decent sounding tone. You know? For a telephone?

There are, like, two sounds out of all the ringtones available for calls on the entire menu of the iPhone. Most of them make no sense, whatsoever.

Who thinks up this stuff?

I mean, a dog barking? Robot sound? A duck quacking? A doorbell? A motorcycle revving? A pinball machine?

Seriously?

These are our choices for how the phone will ring, on a call?

Like I said, I could care less abut different songs for my ringtone. But if I want my phone to sound like a phone, there should at least be a few tones to choose from.

Yeah, lol, the ones already on there are pretty dumb. The "old phone" one is the only somewhat normal phone ring.

 

I like having songs as mine, though. Smiley Happy

Yeah, I guess you know, the "old phone" is what I have. And I don't even mind songs, per se. But out of, what is it? 20 sounds? the selection is the dumbest I have ever seen.

I mean, a doorbell? LOL!!!

I think its a marketing gimmik.  They are so bad to make a lot of people that don't know how to do their own go out and buy a few with iTunes to have something remotely acceptable.

Didn't think about that, you're probably right. I think it's really sad if that's the case, though. I know as soon as I got my first gen I tried to find a ringtone maker because you couldn't even use iTunes to make ringtones at that time, and of course all of the ringtones pre-loaded on the phone are annoying/dumb. This is why I plug that ringtone maker, cuz they were out there before iTunes ringtones. Also, I have gotten 2 new computers since then, so I have had to re-download the software from them twice, and forgot to save the e-mail with my activation code both times. All I had to do was e-mail their support and they e-mailed me the code within a day.Great customer service. And on sale for $7.50 right now, I paid $14.99 (well worth it, though)!

 

They should be paying me, lol.

These are all free. http://macmost.com/iphoneringtones/

 

Also, here's an application where you can download, then import a song from your iTune library and edit 30 seconds of the song to create a ringtone. http://www.iringer.net/
