AlleyInsider claims (reliability unknown) that "a well-informed source" has told them that the Beatles will not be introduced at Apple's media event next week.

Their source does expect a new iPod, but also a new Ringtone feature for iPhone users. According to their source, users will be able to make ringtones out of songs they've already purchased from iTunes. They also claim, however, that Universal songs won't be available for this feature.

In the days leading to the iPhone launch, we had heard from reliable sources that Apple was working on incorporating Ringtone features into iTunes, but that report claimed the service would cost $.99.

About damn time. I mean why did this take that long?

The only iTunes bought .mp3s doesn't make much sense to me. Why can't i make a custom ringtone out of any mp3 i have on my hard drive? Hope that's wrong.

Yeah, I'll be damned if I'm gonna pay .99c for a ringtone. Between iPhoneringtonemaker and iBrickr, I can make whatever I want into a ringtone, for free.

what a bunch of crap. I will not pay iTunes one damn dime. I will continue to make my own ringtones AND system sounds AND theme modifications for FREE. Useless. That will proberley come bundled with another stupid "update" that will mean another restore is in my future.... Whatever

You are a minority as are most people on this forum. Majority of iPhone users don't know how to use these other apps to do it or want to use 'Apple's method'. Also 99c for a ringtone is cheap compared to what Cingular/AT&T charges in general...it's usually $3-$4 a ringtone. I don't have a problem buying them myself, my time costs money and I'd rather click one button and have it there without having to mod my phone.

I wouldn't be surprised if ringtonemaker stops working once Apple adds their own ringtone support too.

:eek:
LOL! I doubt that. At least there will be a work around if Apple changes its operations for ringtones (not very likely). That is the beauty of hacked operations....the hackers just continue.

If you watch Jobs' keynote speech again and pause the playback during the sequence where it shows the iTunes - iPhone sync page take notice of the tabs. One tab in particular reads: "Ringtones"

Kinda bummed they've made us wait this long to push it live.

Yeah, I've read Beatles stuff won't be available until sometime in 2008. I was getting anxious. They just added Paul, Ringo, John, George 's solo music.

I do hope that how you see it turns out to be incorrect. If Apple makes it so that the only way to have a custom ringtone on the phone is via purchased music through them that will be the largest load of crap I have ever seen put forward by a company. Any music in your library should be available to be a ring tone.

I will be ticked off if iPhoneringmaker stops working, and hopefully the developing group will keep it up, but I would be furious with Apple.

With program like iPhoneringmaker it is so simple that if the person can find their way to the site (which I imagine a google search for iPhone ring tones would do) they can do it easy. It is actually amazing how easy this software makes it to get a ringtone onto the phone.
