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.

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.
