I have downloaded some sms alert tones in zedge.net in m4r format. I'd like to ask how do you make it as your sms alert tone? Please help. Thank you.

You will see six .caf files in there called sms-received1.caf through sms-received6.caf. You need to replace these .caf files with your own .caf files. In order for you to get your m4r to a .caf file, you will need to convert them. CAF is a renamed AIFF file (*.aif). iTunes can convert any file imported into an AIFF if you go into preferences/general/importing and select the AIFF encoder. Then just rename the file to the proper *.caf file you want to replace and SSH it to the phone.

Ok. I have a m4r file that I have renamed to "sms-received1.caf". When I click and drag into itunes under the ringtone category it does nothing. Obviously I am doing it wrong. I also read that you can right click it in itunes and convert it to aiff or whatever and it doesnt give me that option. I have searched tons of forums and looked for various converters but nothing works. Thanks.
