This morning I got this idea of creating a ringtone out of the Cutting Crew song, (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight. You probably have heard of it from GTA Vice City. My friend, Crizzy, on the other hand recalled she remembers the song from a Drew Barrymore chick flick, Never Been Kissed. Anyway I chose that particular song to create a ringtone from because I really dig the sound of the cello during the first 15 seconds of the song.
My iPhone had not been synced with iTunes for a long time. Since I don’t own a computer or laptop anymore, I didn’t want the risk of overwriting some files and I still like the current music and photo files as they are from the last time I synced them. So I went searching online for information on making a ringtone within the iPhone itself without having to sync the phone to iTunes.
Most of the options I read about could only work for a jailbroken device. I sure don’t want to jailbreak my device anymore. I have had enough of that from the past – new software updates would always get messed up and battery drain issue worsened after a jailbreak.
The only legit solution I found sans having to go install the ringtone maker app in Cydia was installing Garage Band and an app to create ringtones with from the mp3 files you currently have on your Music app. Both are paid apps when I checked them on the app store.
Oh well it’s either hold off on syncing or no syncing at all.
