Re: setting ringtone
Use an editor to take part of the song you need for ring tone it must be 40 seconds or under in length or it wont work.. once created use itunes to load the edited tune and convert it into an ACC file this confusingly will name it as an .m4a file
Next track down where itunes has saved the (your named file).m4a and look at it's properties so you can edit it's name/extension call it something relevant to you and change the extension from .m4a to .m4r you will get a warning about changing it but just ignore the warning.
Finally go back to itunes and click on the ringtones icon on the left to open a new page which at first will probably have no ringtones in it and click on file/add file to library and load the ringtone.
put a check mark in the box if it is not already there to include it in iphone sync and connect and sync your phone..

You can use the ringtones stored in Settings > Sounds > Ringtones. Otherwise, you can purchase custom ringtones from the iTunes Store application. You can also try using 3rd party applications that are named ringtone makers and try to use music in your iPod application. You cannot set songs in iPod as ringtones directly.
This guide will show you how to make iPhone ringtones using songs on your iTunes music library right from your Windows PC without installing any application (except for iTunes, of course) and without registering to any website or any premium text services. That means, everything is FREE!
Everything is done directly on your computer, you can do this even without internet connection.
This is for all iPhones (iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or older) and for all iOS versions.
Here's what you need:
Computer running on Windows 7, Vista or XP with iTunes installed
Song(s) on your iTunes music library
Note: You don't need your iPhone yet until you're done making your ringtone and are ready to sync.
If you don't see the Ringtones list on your sidebar, don't worry. It will show up after you're successful in creating your first one.
Open iTunes (from your PC) and select any song from your music library.
Right-click on your chosen song then click on Get Info.
Click on the Options tab, at the top of info window.
Look for Start Time and Stop Time, and copy whatever is written in the Stop Time box (which is the full length of the song) to avoid messing up the original copy, coz you're gonna need to put it back later.On the video, the original length of my song is 5:48.055, but ringtones for iPhones could not comprise the full length of the song, it must only be around 1 to 30 seconds (though I'm not sure if 30+ sec will still work).
Shorten the song to acceptable limit (1 to 30 sec.).On the video I used the first 9 seconds, by changing only the Stop Time from 5:48.055 to 0:09.000.You may also choose the middle part of any song, say you can set the Start Time at 1:23.456 (or any time of your choice) and the Stop Time at 1:54.321 (or any time of your choice).
Click on OK to apply the changes.
Select the same song, click on Advanced from the Menu bar at the top of iTunes Window, then click on Create AAC version.Notice that the AAC version has shorter time than the original one.
Modify the original copy back to its full length (noted on step 4), then click on OK.
Right-click on the AAC version, then click on Show in Windows Explorer. A folder will open showing your two songs in file form, the original copy having the .mp3 file extension, and AAC version with .m4a.If you cannot see the file extensions, Go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View (tab)> and from there, remove the check beside the option saying Hide extensions for known file types. Click on OK to apply the changes. (Watch the video for clearer instruction.)
Change the .m4a file extension to .m4r.You may also change the name, but that's up to you. The important thing is to change the file extension.
Then Windows will ask:Just click on Yes.
Double-click on the modified file to add it to your ringtones list, and you're done!
The only thing you need to do now is to sync ringtones so you can use them on your iPhone.
WARNING-BEFORE YOU SYNC Syncing ringtones will affect the music library on the iPhone, so before you click the sync button, be sure to transfer all your purchased songs first (from iPhone to PC) so no song will be deleted. Or better yet, do this only when you're working on the computer where: you save all your songs, or; you regularly sync your iPhone.
Notes: This guide is intended only for iPhone users, because iPhones do not accept file types other than .m4r as ringtones.
This guide is intended only for Windows users. The guide for Mac users is written separately, with its own video.

Check the Start Time and Stop Time boxes, then
enter times for each (no more than 30 seconds apart, the maximum length
for a ringtone). I used 0:00 and 0:30, respectively, as "Spit It Out"

Delete the 30-second version from iTunes and undo the Start
Time/Stop Time changes to the original.
Open the folder containing the 30-second AAC file you dragged out
of iTunes, then change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r.
Double-click it and it immediately gets added to iTunes' ringtone
Finally, sync your iPhone. When it's done, you can head into the
settings and select your new ringtone.
That's all there is to it! What song(s) will you assign to ringtone

happy new year! I'll see you back here in '09.

You will need to jailbreak your iphone first. Best to use www.ibrickr.com which allows the jailbreak and uploading of applications and custom rings. I have some other software which does this but not as elegantly as ibrickr.
