My new Iphone and custom ringtones for free

Well with my iphone barely a week old I suddenly feel that my blog that gets little attention may turn into this is how-to on making my iphone not only productive, but better – we’ll see how much I can do before I decide to breakdown and jailbreak it or not. So far so good, its like Seinfeld says any comedian can curse and be funny it is more difficult to not cuss and still have a funny show. Thanks Jerry for the inspiration to stay true to Mr. Jobs ‘control’ as long as possible in his confines.

The trick is letting enough of Mr. Gates programs that I use interact and some of the actual good things that are in microsoft programs that are actually left out just to prove he can, thanks Steve!

Ringtone customization is from ehow with one point or two they forgot

  1. Step 1 Open iTunes.
  2. Step 2 Find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.
  3. Step 3 Listen to the song and find the part of it you want to use. The chorus may be a good place to start.
  4. Step 4 Write down the start and stop times of the clip.
  5. Step 5 Right-click the song and select “Get Info.”
  6. Step 6 Click the “Options” tab.
  7. Step 7 Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to “Start Time” in the minutes:seconds (i.e. 2:01) format.
  8. Step 8

    Type in the end time of your ringtone in the text box next to “Stop Time.” Make sure the ringtone is no more than 40 seconds long.

  9. Step 9 Click “OK.”
  10. Step 10 Right-click your song again and select “Convert Selection to AAC.” Wait for iTunes to convert your song. It will create a duplicate version. (Important to note here you will need to make sure before you do this that you at set the import settings to AAC format from MP3 in the preferences. I like mp3 otherwise cause I can put my imported cd’s on devices, so don’t forget to change it back – this messed me up at first)
  11. Step 11 Right-click the ringtone and select “Delete.”
  12. Step 12 Click on the “Keep Files” button.
  13. Step 13 Find the file. It’s usually in your User folder under Music > iTunes > iTunes Music and under the band’s name. It will have an extension of “m4a.”
  14. Step 14

    Replace the “m4a” extension of your ringtone with “m4r”. You can either double-click slowly to rename your file, or right-click and select “Get Info” on a Mac or “Rename” on a Windows PC.

  15. Step 15

    Click “Use .m4r” or the PC equivalent when the system warns you that the change may affect the use of your file.

  16. Step 16

    Double-click the ringtone file. ITunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your iTunes Music Library.

  17. Step 17 Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.

Obligatory Will Rogers quotes

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

There are 3 kinds of people the one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking spaces.
