More info is needed. Did you import the ringtone into iTunes and, if so, have you verified that it is in the ringtone section of your library in iTune?. Also, what iPhone are you syncing and with what version of iTunes... Mac or PC?

My daughter had a similar problem with her 3g and iTunes. She checked them off one at a time and synced each time and then they all made it. She had the problem again, removed them all, then synced them all back again and they all showed up. I haven't ever had the problem with my iTunes/PC/iPhone.

toast bread.

- download a song then put it in iTunes
- click on info and change to time to 29 seconds of the song you want
- convert it over to ACC
- right click on the converted song and choose show in windows explorer
- change the file extension from a to r
- click on yes rename the file
- drag it to ringtones then sync your phone

So if it shows up in the Ringtone section of your Library then I imagine it's also a .m4r file right?

In your Ringtone tab in iTunes do you have Sync ringtones checked? All ringtones? Selected ringtones?

One last thing, the Custom ringtones are listed above the Standard ringtones on the iPhone. Have you scrolled all the way to the top of the standard tones to get to where the custom ones are listed?

Yep I was also gonna say double check that. When I was first creating ringtones I would open up the iPhone and fire to the bottom of the list looking for it. I wouldn't see them listed and I didn't think it was working. They are listed in a separate section ABOVE the standard ringtones.
