Add custom ringtones to your iPhone for free

Hey, quick tip to all iPhone user who want to add their own iPhone ringtones without paying for it.

Very simple :

  • Choose the MP3 sample you want to use as ringtone. No matter lenght or size, we will take care of this.
  • Open your mp3 with iTunes
  • Right click, and choose “Get Info”, then in option tab check and adapt Begin and End Timeframe. The total duration should be 40sec max. Ckick OK.
  • Right click again your song and choose “Convert Selection to AAC”. A new file should be created with exact given duration. You should ear a familair sound (iPhone default  new message beep).
  • Open this file in a browser. While in iTune, you can right click the song and choose “Open in File Explorer”.
  • Change the extension from .m4a to .m4r (r is for ringtone). Double click on this file to open it with Itunes, it should appear in the “Ringtone” folder.
  • Sync your iPhone
  • On your phone, go to Settings, Sound,  Ringtone and choose the new one should be just here.

That’s all !
