Hi I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today I'm going to show you how to make ringtones for your iPhone on your computer. So the first thing that you're going to do is you're going to open up GarageBand on your computer. GarageBand will start and go through it's little startup processes. You're going to hit new music project on the start menu. Save as ringtone, that's the name that you're going to give the song that you're creating now. Just get through that. Then what we can do is find somewhere on here on my computer where I have some songs just right here on my desktop. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to make this little window a little bit smaller, I'm going to drag this song right in here and then I'm going to bring this window back to the size it should be at. And here's the song right here. So I'm going to close out this little keyboard right here. I'm going to find the length that I want this song to be at when I cut it down to make it into a ringtone. And the way I'm going to do that is right down here in the bottom on a small little LCD panel where it has all these numbers, click on the little clock and that will should you time as opposed to measures. So time on ringtones should be between 30 seconds to 60 seconds long. So between half a minute to one minute long. So I'm going to make this one 45 seconds long. Come up here to edit, no actually first select this track, you come up here to edit, split, click down here at the bottom again just in this gray area, come right here, click this second half that you're going to get rid of. Hit delete and now you have 45 seconds of music. So now what I'm going to do is I'm going to hit share and I'm going to hit send song to iTunes. What it's then going to do is create this song, compress it down into the size that I need it to be at and send it directly into iTunes. Then what you can do is from iTunes drag and drop that song into your iPhone and you'll be all set to go. I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California, check out our website
