    you can use audiko.net because it has to be 30 seconds or less for the ringtone and open up itunes, after your phone is recognized make sure the "ringtones" box is checked and press sync, it will then sync your ringtones to your iphone and you can set it through contacts

    Are you serious you have to make the song 30 seconds? So there no option on the Iphone4 that you can just pick the song from your phone and set as ringtone?

    Or you can go via Cydia and find the song you want and download the ringtone through there.

    I just made a few ringtones last night with iTunes. It was super easy and no third party software needed...and it's free.

    yeal, itunes is really a nice tool to make iphone ringtones.
    but you can not make ringtone longer than 30 seconds
    and you can only make ringtone from only few audio format

    while, bigasoft iphone ringtone maker can make iphone ringtone longer than 30 seconds or even longer than 40 seconds, and you can also set all kinds of audio/video including mp3, wav, wma, ogg, flac, acc, aiff, vp8, mp4, avi, wmv, mov, mpg as iphone ringtones

    learn how to do that at http://www.bigasoft.com/articles/how-to-make-iphone-ringtone-longer-than-40-seconds.html

    Why would you want a ringtone longer than 30-40 seconds? How long do people stay on the phone without you answering anyway...?

    Ringtone Designer works fine for me, you can download it in app store and make the ringtone on your phone, out of the music you have on your phone. then connect it to your computer and sync it. Simple!
    There is even a video link to youtube on the app, that you can watch on your phone, which shows how exactly to do every thing! :)

    You don't have to pay 99 cents for ringtones! You can make your own for free by using iTunes.

    There are a few steps to accomplish this. It is tedious so be sure to follow each step for the best outcome. These steps unfortunately cannot be used with a song you purchased from iTunes, use any other MP3 file.

    On your computer Go to Control Panel > Folder Options > View and make sure to Uncheck "Hide Extensions for Known File Type" and select "Ok"

    Open iTunes > On iTunes select "Edit" > Preferences > Advanced > Check the box that says "Copy Files to iTunes Music Folder..." >then click "Ok"

    Pick the song you want to make a ringtone.

    Right click on the song > select "Get Info" > Options> Check the boxes that say "Start Time" and "Stop Time" > In the adjacent box select the time you want your ringtone to start and the time you want it to stop. Example: Start Time 1:30 Stop Time 1:45
    (Your ringtone cannot be longer than 30 seconds or it won't work)

    Click OK.

    Play it to make sure the timing is correct.

    Right click on the song and select "Convert to ACC" or "Create ACC Version" (it will make a copy)

    Drag the copy to your desktop. Right click on the icon and rename ".M4A to .M4R" By changing it to .M4R, it makes it a ringtone.

    Delete the copy in iTunes (the one that is 30 seconds or less).

    Go to the icon on your desktop, double click it and it will automatically play in iTunes under "Ringtones"

    Hook up your iPhone, Sync and there you go, your own personal ringtone.

    P.S. Make sure to go back to the original song in you Library and right click> Get Info> Options> and uncheck the Start Time and Stop Time boxes. That way your whole song will play. It will not mess up the Ringtone you made.
