Ringtones Make a Comeback In iOS 4.3




Here’s a hidden gem inside of iOS 4.3 that hasn’t been mentioned by anyone as far as I know. It was pointed out to me by an anonymous tipster, who sent me a few screen shots.

Apple is now allowing you to purchase Ringtones directly from your iPhone 4 (I’m not sure if this is supported by other models, but I suspect it would be).

Here’s how it works.

On an iPhone 4 running the iOS 4.3 Gold Master  launch the Settings app, tap Sounds, tap Ringtone, and then tap Buy More Tones.

You’ll be taken to a Ringtones store which currently seems to be overrun by Lady Gaga and her expensive $1.29 ringtones.

I’m not sure about you, but I prefer making my own ringtones from songs that I’ve already bought and turning them into  my own ringtone mash-ups. It is a lot more fun and a lot less cheaper than paying $1.29 for a ringtone matching a song I already paid for. I also like ringtonefeeder.com a site that offers a unique affordable subscription service with some very nice ringtones.

Where do you go to get your ringtone fix? Let us know by leaving a comment.
