Has anyone seen if this update breaks adding your own custom ringtones?

We both know Windows Mobile has been out for many years so why are people still saying the iphone is the only phone that can do things that WM has been doing since it got released so many years ago?
I have Pocket PC 2003SE that can do a lot more than the iPhone can. The only thing it cant do is make calls but it does have Skype so it sortof can.
If you actually put all 3 side by side Windows Mobile, Blackberry and iPhone I bet the Windows Mobile has more features than the other 2 put together. I do like the iPhone as its got a lot of potential to actually be the best on the market thats IF Apple unlock it and give it all the features a phone should have and what the iPhone lacks.
The way it is now is like a tiny Mac with a phone addon.... or more like it a iPod with a phone addon.
It's not a phone with extras is a iPod that can make calls. Thats problably why I dont like it as I have never liked or wanted an iPod.

Hey, I just noticed since I upgraded to 2.0 that there's no more speaker interference... Before I couldn't hold iphone on a work desk and now its just fine... just like other gsm phones. It makes noise on incoming call...but thats fine...

Hey guys, so from all this talk, what is the status on the new 7.7.1 for old iPhones on 2.0 (Pwnd) with T-mobile, on OSX 10.5.4? Is it safe to get? Will it brick the phone? Will it kill all of the apps that came with pwning, like Cydia and the ssh stuff that came with it? Thanks

Essentially, just delete all your recurring events first; erase sync history; and do the sync again. Then add your recurring events back. Then it will sync everything.
You can preserve your recurring before doing these, by exporting to another file first; restoring it later.

Hey fairy guy, why don't you actually give some actual examples or specific reasons that the iphone is so crappy - okay, we get it, WM has been out for a long time. That does NOT necessarily make it a better os. I happen to have used a Nokia 2125 running WM for almost a year, and it was the worst, most unreliable phone i have ever had - ActiveSync is extremely inconvenient, and windows mobile is a joke. You still have an extremely watered down 'mobile' internet, and a very limited array of applications. Also, windows is the least open, and most proprietary operating system available, even OS X (which iphone is running) is built on the fairly open unix platform, and there are countless GPL applications in circulation specifically for macs - Apple even included X11 support with the operating system! Even iTunes is phasing out the DRM protection on their music. The primary reason for the AppStore and limit to signed code on the iPhone is for the protection of the average consumer - Look at how many buggy and, let's be honest, poorly written apps are in the official store! Imagine if there was no quality control, how many soccer moms and average users with no interest in hacking their phone would be coming in with bizarre problems. The overall customer satisfaction would plummet. It is not hard to jailbreak your phone if you wish, and there are ample resources to do so, but I for one am glad Apple cares about their consumer.
Sorry about the off-topic bickering, but this needed to be said.
Anyways, I am interested in jailbreaking, which I haven't yet done on my iPhone 3G 5A347, so perhaps I will be the first to do this (or attempt to do this) under 7.7.1. I am on OS X 10.5.4.
But first of all, can anyone give me a comprehensive list of pros and cons to jailbreaking, or refer me to a good source on the matter? I would love to have ssh, vnc (that actually works),mobile console, file browsers, emulators, etc on my phone, but I just haven't seen enough out there yet to actually compel me to risk it. Any more info would be greatly appreciated. If you prefer to contact me directly my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

My unlocked/jailbroken 2G will not sync with this new 7.7.1 version of iTunes. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

if you have a mac, you can use garageband to create ringtones that will sync even on a regular 'locked' iPhone

what if all you got Is a pc?
08-07-2008, 01:05 AM #97
as far as I know, for the time being your only other options are to load them by jailbreaking (plenty of info here on it, but personally I don't have any experience with it) or to see if your pc can run OSx86. I guess you could also buy ringtones through iTunes >_<

you can probably just clip the files down to the length you want, and transfer them onto your phone using SFTP (see the guides section) into the ringtones folder.
EDIT: Actually, come to think of it, have you even taken the time to check the guides section at all? There are multiple guides for installing ringtones from windows.
