    anyone know how its done?
    usually im a dab hand at these types of things but this has left me baffled.
    watched some how to youtube vids and they didn't work!
    some websites instructions seem to be for the older iphones and dont work for the 3gs!

    any help wud be fookin wickard!

    take your iphone. Place it in a box (ideally from parcelforce) and send it to me.

    I dunno what windows your using, but if you open a folder (my documents will do) then click Tools and folder options and then the view tab you will see a check box saying

    "Hide extentions for known file types"

    Uncheck that and all files will now have the file extention on the end of them.

    It was not a suggestion. It was an instruction.

    WTF can Iphones not just play MP3s as a ringtone? If not thats fucking gay to say the least.

    I just make my ringtones in Goldwave, save as MP3 and save on my phone, easy as sex.
