How to Make Custom iPhone Ringtones for Free

For those who have been trying to find out how to get customized ringtones for your iphone using your favorite songs, this is one easy method i found online and it is free and you do not have to pay money to download any converter :> I just made my own ringtone using the song "Without Words" from my favorite drama "You're Beautiful" ;>


Things You'll Need:

  • iTunes
  • Mac or Windows computer
  • Non-DRM song (i.e., one not bought from the iTunes Store)
  1. Step 1

    Open iTunes.

  2. Step 2

    Find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.

  3. Step 3

    Listen to the song and find the part of it you want to use. The chorus may be a good place to start.

  4. Step 4

    Write down the start and stop times of the clip.

  5. Step 5

    Right-click the song and select "Get Info."

  6. Step 6

    Click the "Options" tab.

  7. Step 7

    Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Start Time" in the minutes:seconds (i.e., 2:01) format.

  8. Step 8

    Type in the end time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Stop Time." Make sure the ringtone is no more than 40 seconds long.

  9. Step 9

    Click "OK."

  10. Step 10

    Right-click your song again and select "Convert Selection to AAC." Wait for iTunes to convert your song. It will create a duplicate version.

  11. Step 11

    Right-click the ringtone and select "Delete."

  12. Step 12

    Click on the "Keep Files" button.

  13. Step 13

    Find the file. It's usually in your User folder under "Music > iTunes > iTunes Music" and under the band's name. It will have an extension of m4a.

  14. Step 14

    Replace the m4a extension of your ringtone with m4r. You can either double-click slowly to rename your file, or right-click and select "Get Info" on a Mac or "Rename" on a Windows PC.

  15. Step 15

    Click "Use .m4r" or the PC equivalent when the system warns you that the change may affect the use of your file.

  16. Step 16

    Double-click the ringtone file. ITunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your iTunes Music Library.

  17. Step 17

    Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.
