phone won't recognize it if it's too long.
Ive heard you shouldnt exceed 29 seconds for a ringtone. I realize that there shouldnt be a need to go over 30 seconds because a phone doesnt ring over that length, but is there an issue with making ringtones over 29 seconds or any other max length?
How I make them (www.audiko.net)
Audacity (Cut it to length, save as .wav, open in iTunes, Convert to AAC, change file ext. to m4r and add ringtone)
I amde some that are 30 and 31s. Will the phone recognize them when i get it?
Seriously, do you think you'll actually ever hear the extra seconds if you were to use it as a ringtone? Voicemail typically picks up around 18 - 24 seconds in to a normal phone call. Just re-edit them and you won't have problems syncing and using them.
I knew I wouldnt hear the extra seconds, but the question was if I would have to edit them again. I guess Ill just cut the final second(s)
I BELIEVE it might be 35 seconds max.
Haha... Whatever! I just remade all the ringtones I did before to be just under 29 seconds.
Why not make them 2 minutes?Originally Posted by divang
25 to 29 seconds is what my ringtones range.
I make my ringtones the exact same way as OP except I just plug mp3's into Audacity, export as mp3, convert to aac in iTunes, etc.) and I've had them go up to 38 seconds with no issue in iTunes or on the iPhone itself. That just happened to be where the chorus ended and I didn't want to cut it. I have at least 20 ringtones on my iPhone right now that are between 30-35 seconds long and I've never had a problem.
I guess I wont spend extra time making sure they are just under 29 seconds then. (Yes I realize it wont even play that long)Originally Posted by craze189
Default VM transfer is at 15 seconds I believe. The range AT&T allows is 15-30. You can't change that time from the iPhone (another basic phone feature they chose to exclude) but it can be changed via GSM codes or by pitong the SIM in another phone that can change it. I have mine set to 25.
