HOW TO – Stop paying for ring tones

Img413 108
Wired has a good article/how-to on making your own ring tones using our favorite audio tool, the open source Audacity.

You’ll need –

  • Cell phone with MP3 ring-tone support
  • CD or MP3 of the song
  • Audio-editing software that allows export to MP3. If you don’t already have this, Audacity is a good open-source program you can download for free, and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. You’ll also need the LAME library for Windows, Mac or Linux. (LAME is a free downloadable MP3 codec that enables Audacity to encode to MP3.)
  • About 20 minutes

  1. If you have any mp3, wma, or wav files on your computer, you can use Phone Sherpa’s ringtone maker to convert your music into custom ringtones:

    They format it for your phone model then send it to you wirelessly. Its very easy to do. Phone Sherpa also has a wallpaper maker that formats any jpg or gif to your exact phone screen size.

    Supports macs and pcs. Phone Sherpa also has a free trial offer and a referal program to earn more free credits.

  2. making ringtones at the phone sherpa web site is so much easier and faster than downloading and configuring ringtone maker software for my computer..I’m always nervous about downloading viruses and malicious software from sites Im not familiar with.
