convert itunes music into ringtone

this is what i've been lookin for. to convert mp3 or wma files into ringtone but i couldn't find a right way to do it. guess i just got lucky. i googled it, and there's actually a way to convert it without havin to pay 99cents for itune. all credits to macrumors.

here's how:

Windows and Mac

1. To add a ringtone to your iPhone, using Windows Explorer or Finder just duplicate and rename any AAC file with a "M4R" extension, then double-click on it. This file will be added to your iTunes library automatically. (Some are reporting a size limit for the music file, so if you have trouble, using a smaller file may help)

2. Now, click on your iPhone in iTunes, and go to the ringtone section. You should now see your new ringtone. If you want to be sure about the sync, feel free to click "selected ringtones" and check off the file explicitly, though this shouldn't be required.

3. Now SYNC your phone. You're Done!

Windows Notes

Again, you need to make sure the actual extension is changed.

Opens My Computer, Then goes to Tools-Folder Options-View

UNCHECK "Hide extensions for known file types" once this is done you can simply rename the file with a new extension of M4R which then changes the Icon to say RING.
