IPhone :: How To Restore Ringtones In ITunes

Last week I purchased three ringtones from iTunes directly from my iPhone and when I synced up my iPhone to my Mac just now, it removed those ringtones off my phone but now I can't figure out how to get them back on! I can see those ringtones in iTunes on my Mac but when I tell it to sync those ringtones back to my phone they never show up. What am I doing wrong?

IPhone :: Can You Use ITunes For Ringtones Or Other Options For Enhanced Ringtones?
Simply stated, can you use iTunes to set up ringtones for contacts? Can you somehow get different ringtones for FREE? This is for the iPhone 3G that I'm getting next week.

IPhone :: Restore Software With Non-original Sim Card After Restore - ITunes Read Error
I have an old, currently unactivated, 2g iphone. The screen broke about 1 year ago, which gave me an excuse to get a 3gs (which is what i use now).

My girlfriend is joining my at&t plan soon and she wants to use my 2g iphone, so we got the screen fixed at a local phone repair shop. Everything worked fine, screen was fixed, and was usable just like before (just no service).

When i got the phone back home, I mistakenly put my 3gs sim card in it and then restored the iphone software. Now itunes says "there is a problem with my iphone and i should take it into the apple store", even if i put in the original sim card and try to restore again.

Did this happen because i restored the software with the non-original sim card?Will it work again once at&t assigns a new sim card to it?

Nokia :: 6301 Backup / Restore Doesn't Restore Ringtones With Contacts
Just got my first Nokia. Got the 6301. found a pretty wicked transformers theme already but would prefer to make my own theme and/or modify the existing one.any program/website anyone would reccommend to accomplish this with ease?

When i run a backup and restore (i LOVE this function!) it seems to restore everything perfectly except for the ringtone associations with my contacts. any trick to get it to back that up too so i dont have to reset my ringer ids every time i run a restore?And also... i noticed when i select "use tone" it gives me the option to "set at callback tone". can anyone explain that function to me?

Thanks in advance for time and effort spent to help me out here. as my screen name should make it obvious, historically ive stuck with Motorola for the most part, regardless of quirks, because of custimization freedom but mostly physical build but finally i feel that t mobiles nokias are finally becoming up to par with nokias quality outside of t mobile and motorolas inactivity on our end is starting to shift my allegeance after so many years =)

IPhone :: Difference Between DFU Restore And Normal Restore Through ITunes?
I keep reading "do a DFU restore" if you want to restore back to stock firmware. What is the difference between DFU Restore and just pushing restore in iTunes? Does DFU restore wipe out the phone better then regular restore?

Last night I restored my 1st gen iPhone via iTunes restore buttons because opening the apps were laggy w/ jailbroken 2.1. Now on stock 2.1 the SMS app is still a bit laggy. If I would have DFU restored instead of "regular' restore, would that have made a difference?

IPhone :: Can Restore Contacts - Music - Movies - Ringtones?
My sister's PowerBook was stolen. Before this theft happened she was current on a sync with her iPhone. However, she was not current on her backups (way behind, way way behind).

I have replaced the PowerBook with a hand-me-down MacBook and have restored her last backup from her external drive (which was not stolen) to it. However, like I said, this data is way out of date. At least from this point on she'll be on Leopard/Time Machine for backups to stay current.

So my question is, when she comes over tomorrow to pick it up, is there a way that I can plug in her iPhone and suck all the content off of it back into the Mac? I'm thinking the Missing Sync for iPhone might help with the data, but what about the music, movies, ringtones, etc.?

IPhone :: Phone Suddenly Rebooted With ITunes Logo - Unable To Restore ITunes Says "waiting For IPhone"
I currently have a week 35 iPhone and it is acting up now. On Saturday it was working fine then all of a sudden it rebooted and the connect iTunes logos came on. I plugged it in to my laptop and iTunes said it has to be restored so I tried to restore it with the 1.1.4 image that is on my hard drive and all iTunes says is "waiting for iPhone..." The iPhone has the apple logo and the processing wheel spinning on the bottm. I have left it for about 10 minutes and nothing has changed on the screen. If anyone has any ideas that would be great. I am in Toronto but a AT&T customer so I only had the phone jailbroken using ziphone 2.5c.

IPhone :: Ringtones / ITunes 8, 2.1
I have downloaded some free ring tones from iTunes to test if they will work on my iPhone. They downloaded fine, but they don't appear in the Ring tones section of iTunes 8.0 but in my main library.I have not updated my iPhone 16GB 3G to version 2.2 because this is the third one I have received. The clerk ar CarphoneWarehouse said 2.2 is causing major issues and I should wait till 2.3 is released. The previous two i phones were faulty. I have looked on the support pages, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for. My iTunes 8.0 is not showing ringtones in View - View Options, so I can't create ringtones either (no bell icon).Also, once a ringtone s created, can I use these as message tones?Please can someone help me? These default ringtones are driving me crazy!

IPhone :: ITunes & Ringtones
I just got my first iPhone last night. I got the instructions on how to create a ringtone from iTunes, but so far I have not found a single song on iTunes that has the little bell beside it to indicate that it is able to be made into a ringtone. What's the deal?

IPhone :: Ringtones From ITunes
When I downloaded the latest I-tunes I was really pleased to see I could buy some ringtones.
I bought 4, and allocated them to specific contacts, but when I synced the phone with the computer, all the purchased ringtones were removed from the phone. They're on the computer, but I can't get them back onto the phone without buying them again (and I expect they's be taken off again when I sync next time)Can anyone help / tell me what I'm doing wrong?It's not like I'm buying them from some dodgy website, or creating my own ringtones.

IPhone :: Created Ringtones Do Not Appear In Itunes?
I have created ringtones. They do not appear in Itunes 'music', they do appear in 'Ringtones'. In Itunes, when the ringtone is clicked it plays correctly. I have tried to sync with either 'all ringtones' or 'selected ringtones' selected, along with Sync ringtones being selected. Itunes is set to automatically sync when Iphone is connected. I am using a WinXP computer. It's a brand new phone with 16Gb and all other sync items have worked flawlessly.So far all of my attempts have failed.

IPhone :: Ringtones From ITunes Store?
Yesterday I was searching iTunes Store on my iPhone 3GS for a song I heard that I liked. As I scrolled the results I noticed the search results included ringtones. I was amazed, I was thinking has Apple finally started selling ringtones in the finish region. I did some digging and found a hole ringtones section in the "Others" menu of iTunes Store on my iPhone. Half an hour ago I bought one of the ringtones, everything went great. The ringtone worked on my iPhone and I was happy. Then I decided to hook up my iPhone to iTunes to sync and backup. Suddenly the new ringtone had been taken out of my iPhone and iTunes refused to put it back in. iTunes only gives a me a error message that says "Ringtone was not transferred to the iPhone cause this computer is not authorized to play it" or words to that effect. Since my iTunes is in finish it is a little difficult to translate word to word. I payed good money for that ringtone and I want to know why I cant use it. Why is there even a hole ringtone section in iTunes on my iPhone. There is no ringtone section in the finish iTunes Store when I look at it on my PC. Any help in how I should proceed from here is appreciated.

IPhone :: Purchased Ringtones From ITunes
I recently purchased a ringtone from the iTunes store directly from my phone. After it finished downloading it asked me if I would like to "set as default ringtone" to which I responded "yes". Good to go right? Wrong. After I set it as my default I connected my iPhone to my comp and synched it all up. My new ringtone now sits in a lovely new folder called "Ringtones" in my iTunes BUT my phone does not ring this new tune when someone calls. Not only that, I can't find it anywhere on my phone - not even in the iPhone "settings" app.

IPhone :: ITunes And Creating Ringtones
I have taken the old steps for creating a ringtone in iTunes 8, going from a .mp3 to .m4a and then to .m4r, but once I have changed the file type from .m4a to .m4r and placed the ringtone in the music file in iTunes, the ringtone will show up in the Ringtones folder, but will not sync to my iPhone 3g. Also the file is only 35 seconds long. Any suggestions? If there is any other info you need let me know and I'll tell ya.

IPhone :: Transferring Ringtones From Itunes To It?
I have sucessfully converted songs into acc files, deleted the converted files from iTunes (but not the computer), found the m4a files on the PC, converted them to m4r, transferred the m4r files back to iTunes and found them under "Tones". 

What I cannot do is to get them to be found on my iPhone 3GS. 

Syncing the iPhone does not appear to transfer the ringtones..
