Anyone have any idea about the ringtones in v2.0? Will they be better than the cruddy ones available previously? :laugh2:

Stock ringtones you mean? As far as we know, it still has the same ones. I agree, though; the only stock ringtones I use are Marimba and Xylophone.

Yes, just the stock ones. I know you can obviously use iTunes but I was just hoping for a few decent ones included.

The new phone may have some different ringtones, but when you say V2.0 I am assuming you mean the firmware update. If that is the case then I don't think that will add any different ringtones.

most likely not even though the stock ones are horrible. they're more like random sounds than ringtones... but I'm just glad than u can just add your own ringtones...

It's too bad though that right now you can't use an iTunes song as a ringtone. The 2-3 year old cell phone I got right now can use mp3's as ringtones.

That is absurdly cool.

Another reason it's going to be hard for me to wait 5 more months until my Sprint contract is over...

I suppose you weren't completely taken by the Instinct?
No...I pretty much only have eyes for the iPhone. I'm currently a Treo user, and before that, I had a Samsung i500, which was a beautiful thing, a flip Palm phone.

But the idea of an Apple solution, where I can sync Mac OS to Mac OS, has a mighty strong appeal. The interface, "real" internet, and other goodies are a draw for sure.

Too bad we have to jump through hoops to do this. Hopefully, a future app will do this all in the iPhone.
Have you tried it? It's like only one hoop, 3 inches off the ground. Once you convert the file to .aac, you just rename it to .mp4 and you're done. Now just drag it to iTunes and it will automatically go in your ringtones section and sync the next time you connect your iPhone.

The iPhone 3G will be my first iPhone. I guess that's what I'll have to do until a better solution comes along.

We don't know whether that ringtone workaround will work with 2.0 much less an iPhone 3G. We'll all have to wait until 7/11.

I wonder if there will be a product tie-in with the 7-11 convenience stores? iPhone 3G can now be bought and activated at all 7-11 stores. :laugh2::p

Wouldn't seem to make much sense after the first day, but I understand where you're coming from.:cool:
