I just want to make sure I am 100% clear on this. You did that 4 step method and added a new ringtone since the update. You then sync'd a few times and all remained the same?

I just want to make sure people have confirmed adding new tones to 1.1.3 and doing a few syncs before I jump on the 1.1.3 bandwagon. I would be beyond pissed if I did the update (I use iToner now which I understand does not work on 1.1.3) to find out I loose my tones and cannot add them back via the workaround.

I'll completely look at it when I get off work but all the ringtones I had stayed on. I will completely test when I get off.

I can 100% confirm that the following still works:

- Your ringtones that you made in 7.5 / 1.1.2 still work on your iPhone
- You can still make ringtones in 7.6 / 1.1.3 by converting the desired track to .wav, importing it into Windows Movie Maker, cutting down the sound to 30 seconds, export that project's .wma, convert it to .aac via iTunes, rename the filename from .m4a to .m4r, and finally drag it to iTune's 'Ringtones' folder, and it will sync just fine to the iPhone just like before. So yes, you can still create custom ringtones to your heart's desire.

I'm running iTunes 7.6, iPhone 1.1.3, and Windows Vista Ultimate.

Very good info. Maybe today I will install the new update. It is just sitting on my computer. I guess it would be a good idea to start out with the 7.5/1.1.2 setup and make the tones and add them to the ringtone tab. After I do the upgrade at least I know those 15 tones will still exist.

Thanks!

If you made any ringtones with iPhoneringtonemaker, they do not work now.

And here is my tut for Free ringtones:

1. Find a song you want to use as a ringtone.
2. Use whatever program you use to "clip" a section under 30 seconds long.(Audacity is a Freeware Program)
3. Double click the shortened file and it will go into the "Music" section of iTunes and it will start to play.
4. Right click on the file and choose the "Convert to AAC" from the drop down menu.
5. You will now have two of the same files in the iTunes Music Playlist.
6. Right click on one of the two and choose "show in (to locate the file) explorer."
7. Right click on the song with the m4a to m4r extension. You can delete the other one from that folder. If you don't see the file extension then you need to open your Explorer (myComputer) go to tools/folder options/view then go and make sure you have un-checked next to "Hide extensions for known file types".
8. Change the extension from m4a to m4r.
9 Go to iTunes and delete BOTH of the files from the playlist. Just make sure you click on "keep files."
10. Now go back to the folder you have the m4r file and double click it. It should go into the "ringtone folder" of iTunes.
11. Connect your iPhone, click on the "ringtone" tab and the song you need will be on the list. Check the check box and press the apply button lower right

I'm having a problem. I leave my phone on the ringtones screen when I sync.
After the sync is done, I see the custom song list for a second then it disappears.
If I yank the phone off the dock just as the phone is finished syncing the custom ringtones stay. WTF?
Has anyone else had this problem?

You do have it set so that when you sync it will sync the ringtones, right? I know that is a stupid quset but sometimes we overlook things like this. :laugh2:

yeah this no longer works for me either. I sync it to my phone and according to iTunes the ringtone is on my phone. But when I go to find it on my phone it isn't there. Any help people? Thanks in advance.

It worked fine for me today. I created the ringtone as an .mp3, imported it to iTunes, converted to AAC, renamed as .m4r, synced the phone and voila! I had a new custom ringtone in 1.1.3. :)

It still works fine. Somewhere you guys are leaving off a step. I would bet you have something checked wrong in your iPhone sync tabs for ringtones.

Or maybe the clip is larger than 30 seconds. I have two that are about a minute and they show up in iTunes ringtones but they don't get added to the iPhone when I sync. All the other ringtones 31 seconds or less are added. :) That would be my guess.
