Ringtones are limited to 40 seconds in length. Anything more and it won't work.

The only thing i can think of is to make sure your iPhone has the lastest software and make sure that all the Ringtones are checked to be synced. If you have all of those things then im not sure why the ringtones arent on the phone.

OKAY! You guys will all be happy if you were having the same problem as me. Syncing all the ringtones, but only one, or none show up on your iphone.

YOU HAVE TO delete the AAC version you created in your music library on itunes. Then, go to the ringtones section under your iphone and deselect to sync, then when it's finished select it to sync all ringtones again.

VOILA! you have all of your ringtones.

I am not sure I understand. Is there a folder with the AAC version in my music library? I have only had my iPhone 3 days, so you are saying to delete the AAC version in my music library on iTunes...not on my computer?

While you have the iPhone plugged into your computer, go into the Store option at the top and deauthorize your computer and then authorize it again. Re-sync it and it worked. WOOHOO! Happy Thanksgiving.

I gotto say I think ohsnapcojax is on to something. I had the same issue followed the instructions except for 1 step. ID10T error. You do have to delete the .AAC version of the file from your Ituns music library after you added it to the Ringtones section.

Follow these steps paying close attention to steps 4 and 5.

Deauthorizing, reauthorizing and syncing did it for me.

With iPhone connected to computer:

- In iTunes menu select "Store," then "Deauthorize Computer"

- Then select "Store," then "Authorize Computer"

- A message will pop up saying "X out of X Computers are Authorized" or something to that effect.

- Sync iPhone

- Restart iPhone, go to settings, sounds, ringtones. Purchased ringtone should be on top. Unless you have some other problem...

Had the same problem with my iPhone I got yesterday and Googled the problem. This thread came up top of the list.

I did what you suggested, shoeless, and I now have "Mr Brightside" as my ringtone.

I'm so grateful, I just registered just to say a huge THANK YOU !!!
