Youtube shows some guy showing off a custom ringtone. Looks real to me, so how does he do it?

Do you think you could post the Youtube video so we can watch it?

Never mind, It was on the Engadget home page.

Here's the link to the video. It's kinda lame, but it seems he may have put a ringtone on the phone.

Gizmodo had an article in the past couple days about it. See it here.

Those guys who are doing work over on the IRC are doing a terrific job. And I'm sure someone will package it in a shiny graphical wrapper soon enough.

I believe Apple has every intention of giving us Ringtones. If you watch the original Keynote, it's right there, as a new sync tab in iTunes... along with Personal, Photos, Music, etc., there is a tab for Ringtones.

You can see it here if you want:
(it's towards the end of the video)

Give it some time... we'll be seeing it soon, I'm sure!

True, but a big ongoing theory is that these ringtones will be available for purchase only through the iTunes store. I would love if iTunes had a ringtone builder, but I just don't see that happening.

This video shows someone using a custom ringtone that he most likely did not have to pay for...

Well, I think you can get it back, but you have to do a full software restore on your iPhone. But I agree; I'll wait until they get past that little quirk before I try the mod.

Cash is working on a new guide tonight that doesn't have this problem.
