I have joined this forum as I initially want to create my own text tone from an MP3 or M4R/M4A file, as I have already for ringtones. I have encountered two problems with this, which didn't arise with ringtones; (a) syncing the phone with iTunes having created an m4r ringtone file places the file in the phone's ringtone list, but I cannot see any way to force it into the text tone list, and (b) even when I've got it into the ringtone list, when played it appears to play too fast, sounding tinny and not at all as it does in iTunes. The duration of the sound is about 2 seconds when played normally. Can anyone advise me how to use this file as a text tone selectable on the iPhone? Ta. Sam PS I can process the file and change its file format with Audacity, if necessary. That's how I created it in the first place.
