How to Make iPhone Ringtones

You always wished if you could have lots of ringtones for your iPhone for free.  Well, now you can. In this article we will show you how to create iPhone ringtone from your mp3 songs collection without spending a dime. There is nothing illegal about it and the following technique is applicable for both PC and Mac.

Step 1

If you have iPhone, you must have iTune installed in your comouter. If not, please install iTunes on your computer. You can download it for free at Open iTune in your computer.

Step 2

Go to your music or song library and select the song you would like to use as iPhone ringtone. You cannot use the complete 3 or 5 minutes song as ringtone in your iPhone. Therefore, you need to select a part of the song that is most attractive to you. Most of the times, the chorus is the best part of any song.

Step 3

Write down the start and stop time of the clip. Right click the song and select “Get Info”. Click the “Options” tab.

Step 4

Type in start and the end time of your ringtone next to “Start Time” and “Stop Time” in minutes and seconds (i.e. 1:30 ). The start and the stop time duration cannot exceed more than 40 seconds. Once you have selected these two, click “OK”.

Step 5

Right click you song again and select “Convert Selection to ACC”. iTune should convert the ringtone now to proper format in a moment. iTune also creates duplicate of the ringtone file. Hence, you can delete the ringtone file that just been created and find the same file by clicking your “Keep Files” button in iTune.

Step 6

Find the ringtone file physically. It should be located at Music > iTunes > iTunes Music and under the brand or singer’s name folder.

Step 7

Once you find the ringtone file, rename it to “Use.m4r”. Keep in mind that the previous extension for the file was “m4a”.

Step 8

Double click the ringtone file after re-naming and it should be automatically added to your iTune ringtones library.

Step 9

Connect and sync your iPhone and your newly created iTune ringtone should be ready to use.

Note: Based on your iTune version and operating system version, the process stated here can be little different.
