    Technically correct but just to clarify....

    You need to convert your ringtone into an aif formatted sound file. Then replace the .aif extension with .caf

    THIS PAGE defines the process very well.

    Good luck

    You need to convert your ringtone into an aif formatted sound file.
    A lot of them are used for things like mathematical modelling of climate change, objects in space moving around another etc.
