    How to covert a voice memo into a ringtone with Windows.


    • Go to the message conversation that has the memo
    • Tap Edit at the top right
    • Tap the circle to the left of the memo to select it
    • Tap Forward on the bottom right
    • Type in your own email address
    • Send the message
    • Check your email and save the attachment to your desktop
    • Open iTunes
    • Drag your voice memo (wav file) into your iTunes library
    • In iTunes, click go to Edit > Preferences (shortcut: Ctrl+,)
    • Click the Import Settings button
    • In the drop down at the top, change it to Import Using: AAC ENCODER
    • Press OK, press OK again
    • Locate your voice memo in your library
    • Right click the voice memo > Create AAC Version
    • A duplicate will appear beneath the original
    • Right click the duplicate > Show in Windows Explorer
    • Ensure that extensions are not hidden (see here for XP, or here for Vista)
    • Right click the file > Rename (shortcut: F2)
    • Rename the extension in the file from m4a to m4r. (i.e. myringtone.m4a > myringtone.m4r)
    • Windows will ask if you are sure that you want to change it. Click Yes
    • Drag the file back into iTunes, this time into your Ringtones
    Congratulations, you are done.

    In addition to the excellent instructions from seanwes, if you want to make a ringtone from the Voice Memo app itself, simply select the voice memo...select SHARE...then select EMAIL and email it to your PC...it will already be in the .m4a format so you can skip down to the part of the instructions on renaming the file.
