As per Steve Jobs: "We're going to ship a new version of iTunes tonight to support some new products. The biggest new feature: ringtones."


As if we didn't see that coming!


More info according to Steve Jobs...

"Our ringtones are going to cost just $.99 in addition to the song."

"Here's how it works... when you plug in your iPhone a new column will pop up with bells -- that shows how many songs you can make ringtones out of." Any segment up to 30s long, fade ins/outs. "When you're ready to buy, push the buy button and for 99c you have a ringtone."

"You can assign it as your default ringtone, or to your favorite people when they call... custom ringtone maker built in, over half a million participating songs, sync 'em right on your iPhone. We're going to turn this on next week. You'll need the new version of iTunes we're going to ship tonight. So that's the first thing today."

So nothing about an actual iPhone software update? Copy/Paste,MMS,etc.... Damn..
The event is still in process. You can go to live.ilounge.com (no www) to see the live updates.

That is pretty messed up that you have to pay .99 MORE on top of what you have paid for a song already to use it as a ringtone.

I heard that there will be a 99 cent charge for "cut" but paste will be free.... LOL>>>LOL.... Apple just keeps sucking the money right out of us... I agree, I already own the copies of the songs I would like to use as ring-tones. Why should I pay just to get them onto my phone.... I don't want to jail my phone however, if this keeps up Apple will force the issue...

I am wondering if we will be able to use our own MP3s that we have in iTunes. I have several that I used on my old POS Treo 650.

Here's to hoping I can use them on the iPhone.

there will be an update .. Apple is dropping the iPhone price for big sales and its glaring problems will become more apparent. no copy/paste, MMS, ichat, will be big complaints as the phone becomes more mainstream.

I really don't see what the big deal is. So Apple is charging a buck or two for a complete song and the ability to turn it into a ringtone. Is that really such a bad thing when most if not all the cell carriers out there are charging anywhere from $2.50-$3.50 for a slice of a song that's not only less than 30 seconds long but might not even be the part of the song that you wanted?

I don't think that Apple will recognize the complaints. While web forums do not really speak for the population at large, necessarily, there is a mechanism for feedback via the Apple site. I have been sending mail almost daily about things it needs/lacks. So either I am the only one doing that, a small portion of people are doing that, or somehow all feedback is deemed positive, since I think he said "overwhelmingly positive" which in my book would indicate >90% of feedback.

3. Sendsong loads ENTIRE iTunes playlist.

4. Touch desired song.

5. Select "add as ringtone".

6. Send me $.99 everytime you do this.
