it reads “(viii) You may not use Products as a musical “ringer” in connection with phone calls.”

Guess you won't be able to use songs as ringers. Maybe a firmware update later? Personally this makes me NOT want an iPhone. I love having different songs for different people so I don't have to get up and actually SEE who is calling if I'm not in a mood to talk.

touchscreen? check
widescreen ipod? check
full internet? check
wifi? check
ringtones? no...deal's off!

if you're basing your purchase on a phone around ringtones, you need to do your best to grow up and join the adult human race...who, in their right mind, makes ringtones the number one criterion for purchasing a smart phone?

what makes you think there won't be a hack to put additional sounds on anyway? If there's not an "approved" Apple way to do it, some enterprising hacker will find where the sounds are stored on the iPhone (knowing Apple, I'm sure they're just standard .aif/mp3 files and Apple's reading a directory list).

You do realize that the terms of service you are looking at is for the iTunes Store, not the iPhone. Its simply saying that the music you buy on iTunes isn't supposed to be turned into ringtones.

it doesn't say that the iPhone will not have custom rings. I'm sure you will be able to bluetooth files you make in garageband onto your phone like i do my razr.

im kinda the same way... i wish i could have different vibrating tones and whatnot. that would be nice.

honestly some people's deal breakers are much different than others. ringtones may be one of them, and we're different. its that acceptance that matters

Same here. My ringtone is always something that isn't annoying as hell.. something simple. But yeah my phone is almost always on vibrate unless I'm charging it in my car.

ringtones are annoying and embarrasing. i don't want everyone in the store to look at me while i fumble to find my phone and shut it off! (((vibrate))) is great and all, but i have a problem setting my phone down and forgetting where. then if i call it, 9x out of 10.....i can't hear it/feel it. oh schmit! normal phone sounding ringtones are great. im sure i will be happy with the Apple tones. i always have been on my 'puters

I cant even hear my phone when it rings. Vibrate or a slight DING quietly for a text. Although I know the diff between a call and text based on vib. Text is one vib is a few.

Why do you listen to the ringtone anyway? Just answer the phone! :D
