The first place you need to go is into the Apple iTunes application on your Mac or PC. Then find the song you want. Click “Buy Song” and a few seconds later you’ll see the song downloading.
Once it’s downloaded, just click on “Purchased” under the “Store” list and you’ll see your song, along with any other songs you might have purchased. Now right-click (or, if you’re on a Mac, Ctrl-click) on the song and choose “Create Ringtone…”
Now the lower half of the window opens up and shows you a waveform of your song, along with some basic buttons and options. Experiment with selecting a specific portion of the song: you can click and drag the edges of the blue box to make the segment longer or shorter. Remember, a ringtone is a very short segment of music played over and over on your iPhone with the “gap” setting you can specify the amount of quiet between each loop.
Tweak, fiddle, then click “Preview” to hear how it’d sound as a ringtone. When you’re done you need to buy the rights to make a ringtone separate from buying the rights to listen to and enjoy the song, so click “Buy” button. Once you do so, now you’ll find a new entry in your “Ringtones” area.
Almost done. Now just plug in your iPhone, then click on the “Ringtones” tab and indicate that the phone should sync Ringtones with the computer, and sync your phone. The final step is to assign a custom ringtone on your iPhone and you’re done!
