True, but you have to remember, all songs on I Tunes are not able to be used for ringtones for some reason, only certain ones.
I don't really have a problem with Apple for selling ringtones, but I have a very big problem with them making you buy only iTunes ringtones and trying to block your ability to put your own free ones on there.
I do mind, because there are non tech savvy people who don't know how to work around things, that isn't fair.
From Apple's standpoint, it really doesn't make sense to do this when someone can look at an iPhone$500.00 and right next to it is a $50.00 Sync that can do free custom ringtones AD2P and AVRCP, ( I think I spelled that right), right out the box.
Apple is going to make you buy$2.00 ringtones when I have never seen a ringtone cost more than .99.
The update doesn't affect iBrickr ringtones at all. And to OJ, I do the exact same thing and put my own ringtones on the phone but I wouldn't mind paying $0.99 to use iTunes if only they let me use my own music collection and not just the one I've paid for through iTunes.
