Hey all just wanted to share with everyone my 16gig has been activated and is up and running... I have been trying to load my phone up with songs movies and ringtones. For some reason when I upload several different ringtones it makes duplicates of the first one.so its like having ten of the same one song..does anyone know why this happens?

this is interesting that it is doing this... i cant see why this is happening, are these songs that you made into ringtones or are these that you bought.

These are songs that i made into ringtones not bought...I saw the thread on "how to make ringtones" and made a couple ringtones few days ago. I also tried double clicking on the m4r files...no luck.

Same thing was happening to me. Go into your iTunes, iPhone Summary and change uncheck the options, only check the one that says "Only sync checked songs and videos". After that is the only option you have checked, drag and drop into the iPhone, sync and you will be fine.

I had the same issue with my wifes iPhone. I also had problems loading new firmware to it. I took it back to the Apple store yesterday and they gave me a new phone.

See this post!

That's odd...I was hoping nothing would go wrong with this $500 investment that I've made..but Saint's advice everything has been going pretty smooth with the new iPhone. I'll keep my fingers crossed.:sick:

i have the same problem with my 8GB. It only did it with one ringtone. "the sound of the police" i guess i don't mind seeing it twice on the list. i'll just deal with it, b/c i can't just delete one.
