Unless you’ve been under a rock these last few years, the hottest thing in cell phones is to pick out your cellular phone ringtone. This is the sound that is played when you have a phone call. Who knew picking out your ringtone could be such a huge thing? What type of ringtones can your cell phone play? Do you want a popular song, sound effect or movie quote for a ringtone?
Sure, it’s easy to get the latest tones from any of your favorite artists online from any number of download services, but there are a few things you should know before you do it.
After considering these questions, the best way to find out whether a ringtone free provider is good for you is to sign up. I’ve tried a number of the leading providers and I’m yet to have any serious problems with the service provided.
Another way of downloading free ringtones is by using Ring Tone Text Transfer Language (RTTTL). This is a common language on the internet describing ringtones. When you activate it, you can receive ringtones free of charge.
You should avoid stuff that is part of a scam, other unauthenticated or pirated versions. Not only you will not get good quality tones but it will also harm your computer. Try looking for websites that will not ask you for any membership fees. You should look for websites that offer free options.
Launch iTunes and select the mp3 file which you want to make use of. Note that the maximum ringtone length to be supported by the iPhone is thirty seconds and that you may have to do some trimming so the ringtone can be supported in the iphone. To trim, right click on the mp3 file and a number of possibilioties will be open to you. Look for GET INFO. Click on it, and this will get you to the OPTIONS tab. Click on the tab, fix in the file’s start and stop time, and then click on OK.
These service providers are really targeting those cell phone users who want to have a more personalized phone. Initially, they will give your first personalized ringtone as a freebie. That is only the start of your agony. They do that to get you addicted on getting your phone customized. Pretty soon you will see that your phone bill is flooded with so many charges for ringtones that you did not purchase. Of course, they are aware that most of us are not stupid to fall for this trick, so what they do is make a copy of the Terms of Service and Agreement from a site and edit it to give the idea that it is an official document.
With the advancement in technology, there are iPhone ringtone maker available which have all the latest and advanced features. It helps to convert different audio and video formats to M4R ringtone formats and it has also advanced features like waveform for precise trim and fade ‘in and out’ effect.
