Express the amazing you through your iPhone ringtones. You need not rely on those ringtones that are being sold or could be downloaded which most of them could probably too common anyway and no one wants that. Do not be let yourself be put in a box with these generic ringtones and then some that everybody is using.
Making your own ringtone is far from complicated if you are given at least an idea of what to do. All you need is your iPhone and iTunes to do it.
Obviously, the first thing that you would have to do is pick a song. This step of course is entirely in your discretion. It could be your current favorite song or something that has a really sick beat. It really does depend on you.

Upon choosing your song, right click on it and click on “get info”. On top you will see Options and from there click on “Stop time”. You may choose how long you want your ringtone to be but be reminded that the maximum time would be no more than 30 seconds.
Under the Advanced portion, the next step would be to click on “create AAC version”. When done, go back to your music and choose the original version of the song you chose for your ringtone. Choose get info again, Options and then Stop Time. Undo the changes you have made so that the next time you play the song, it won’t carry out the duration you chose for your ring tone.

After putting back your chosen song to its original state, look for your ringtone’s file extension and change its filename from .m4a to .m4r.
When done, you will see the ringtone you made yourself under the ringtones category of your iTunes. You can now sync your iPhone to your iTunes.
