    In iTunes, highlight song and on the top menu bar go to STORE > CREATE RINGTONE. As far as I know, you can only do this with songs that were purchased through iTunes. Maybe someone else can be more help.

    Download "iringer", create your own ringtones and it will load it into iTunes automatically.

    I believe there are both iphone apps and computer programs that convert songs into the special ringtone formatting.

    Yeah there's an abundance of specialized apps to do this, or if you're on a mac you can do it with garageband. Just google iPhone ringtone garageband and you should be able to figure out how.

    Google "iphone ringtones".

    There are many ways to create ringtones for the iphone.

    Dude!! VERY VERY Easy

    Go to iTunes
    Click on the song you like
    Right Click it
    Options
    Put the Start Time and End Time of when you want it
    Click Ok
    Go to Advanced on the ceiling
    drop down to "Create AAC Version"
    iTunes will create another track right below the original
    go back to Options of the Original..unclick the Start Time and End Time.
    Go to the Actual Physical Location of that new track (Should be iTunes Media Folder)
    go to the Extension, will be M4A
    CHANGE it to M4R.
    Drag the new M4R into iTunes
    Go to Ringtones Section, and it WILL BE THERE as a ringtone
    Sync up iPhone, and you are GTG

    vartanarsen it correct and this is how i do it but when making a ring tone it has to be a max of 30sec before making the AAC Version.

    He skipped a couple of steps.

    Upon right click select Get Info.
    Under Get Info select the Options tab. You'll find the start/stop boxes there.
    The 'ceiling' he talks about is the main toolbar at the top.

    Don't forget to clear the checkbox beside the start/stop times after you create the AAC version. This is so they revert to default values.

    I've used this technique, but I much prefer using Garageband. It is so much easier to set start/stop points.

    You will have to create your own ringtones. I got a video off Youtube and it was very easy to follow and I have 30+ ringtones now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJk2waitMTQ

    Can we make/have a ringtone for contacts too? I had the first iphone so new to the iphone all over again. I remember not being able to use a song as ringtone. I thought apple would have changed that by now..

    Yes. Any ringtone can be assigned to a contact—songs cannot but ringtones you make from the song can be.
