How to make iphone ringtones, alert tones and messages
In iOS 5 Apple for the first time has implemented the ability to change the ring tones and alert tones of our iDevices. On a lot of people surprised this change of attitude of Cupertino company that until recently did not allow users to make these changes. Of course, Apple did not make changes because before the release of iOS 5 opened a shop for iphone ringtones and alert tones for text messages, store in which all tones are available for only € 0.79 each.
The good thing is that users can change their own iphone ringtones directly from the menu Settings> Sounds and the process of creating an alert tone or text message is the same as creating a ringtone.

For alert tones or text tones would be ideal to choose a maximum of just 5 seconds.
