When the iPhone shipped a few weeks ago, it arrived without custom ringtones. I’ve told a few people who’ve groused about it that Apple might be sorting out an arrangement with a ringtone provider and that this might be taken care of in the first software update.
They weren’t terribly happy with that answer and I wasn’t that happy to give it. For US$499 and US$599, this seemed like a basic feature that should have been covered.
The guys over at iPhoneAlley may have a solution in the mean time. According to a guide that was just posted, a user named “Mubs” recently submitted a full tutorial to the site’s forums as to how to install custom ringtones to your iPhone.
It’s a bit technical and not for the faint of heart, but site head Michael Johnston reported that it worked perfectly on his iPhone and this is good enough for me.
So, if you get a chance, check it out and let us know how it goes in the forums.
