Geek Tip: Make Your Own Ringtone

Like it or not MP3 and polyphonic ringtones and Jamster - the company that sells ringtones via commercials on music television - have invaded our world. You can't go to the store, movie or hairdresser without hearing someone's individualized, cheeky and frankly unfair to the general public ringtone of whatever song MTV tells them is cool that week. It's a sound crisis that intrudes my thought process on the daily - I speak from experience when I say once you hear "Eye of The Tiger" three or four times a day you are bound to start living and breathing it - so I would hereby like to propose an alternative.

If you want a fun ringtone (I know most phones come with awful options because companies want you to pay for rings), you can create unique and slightly-less-repetitive ringtones at Mixxer.com. The site helps you create and download your own tones, it's free and you don't even have to register.

All you have to do is upload your MP3 file, clip your favorite 30 second hook and send the ringtone to your cell phone. Check out the site for a full guide.

i just tried this and you do have to pay for most of it. also, with any verizon phones, the mp3 version of the song won't work.

For more freaky ones (rather strange-music-oriented) there is great site with free ringtones - http://www.toneshared.com/As they say: "...world's most interesting collection of mobile phone tones made by well known musicians and artists working in the electronic and alternative music scenes."mind that you won't find any pop songs (actually no songs) there :D

There's a free way to do this with GarageBand.Open the song you want and clip it to what you want. Even add the GB effects that you want.Share it, and it will get saved to your iTunes library. Go in your iTunes preferences and change your import settings to mp3. Go to the song in your iTunes, right click and convert to mp3. Then you can put it on your phone.

I tried this out but the sound quality was really terrible. Has anyone else had a positive or negative experience with this recently? My phone is a Moto V3r.
