1. Create a ringtone as mp3 (less than 30 seconds long).
2. Import into iTunes.
3. Convert to ACC.
4. Rename extension to m4r.
5. Drag the file into the ringtones folder.

You can then sync your custom ringtone with your iPhone. It works like a charm.

The ringtone has to be less than 30 seconds for it to work. After you convert it to AAC, go to User>Music>iTunes>iTunes music and find the file in the artist folder. Most people don't put all the artist info on ringtone files so it might be in the unknown artis>unknown album folder. Once you see it in there, right click and rename it with a .m4r file extension instead of whatever it has (i can't remember right off hand). This is easier if you have your files set to show all extensions.

There is a thread on the 3G board that contains a link to a you tube video that walks you through the process. I'm ver visual, so it really helped make every step clear to me. I'm on my phone, so no cut & paste.. search for "How to make a ringtone in iTunes 7.7"

After u convert your ringtone right click on it and then click on show in windows explored. That's how u change the file extension.
