Create your own ringtones with iTunes 9

Judging by the sales numbers I’ve read about all over the web, quite a few of you got iPhones this Christmas. There are a ton of ‘fun’ things you can do with your iPhone; there are apps galore and more coming every day.

Here’s the part I have to remind myself not to forget: It’s a PHONE.

One of the first things I did when I got mine last year was to create some custom ringtones. By creating different ringtones for individuals and groups of people, I can easily identify who is calling without having to look at the display screen. This is especially helpful when driving or when I am just too lazy to get off the couch to get the phone.

You can purchase ringtones via iTunes, but creating them is not all that difficult. In theiTunes 9 Essential Training tutorial above, Garrick Chow shows us how to create our own custom ringtones. After you watch this video, go back and watch the entire course and get to know the power within iTunes 9. Let us know what you think.
