iPhone gets free ringtone download site

Myxer, a site offering free, advertising-supported mobile content, has added the ability to download iPhone-formatted ringtones to its service. To access the ringtones, users can visit myxer.com, browse the available content, and use the “Download for iPhone” link to download any tone to their PC or Mac desktop. The iPhone ringtones are already in the required .m4r format, so they can be added straight to iTunes following the download, and can then be synced to the iPhone. “The iPhone is part of today’s new mobile economy and like Myxer, it’s helping to change the landscape of today’s mobile environment,” said Myk Willis, CEO, Myxer. “We’re delighted to invite iPhone users to expand their mobile content choices through open access to Myxer’s catalog and broad array of mobile content delivery services.”

I tried adding one of their ringtones to my iPhone just a minute ago. It doesn’t allow me to drag the ringtone into my ringtones folder in iTunes. It gives me the green plus on the cursor like it’s going to add it, then I let go of the mouse button expecting the ringtone to drop into the folder. It doesn’t show up in the ringtone folder though. Anyone else try this with any luck? Maybe I’m doing something stupid.

I simply downloaded the file and then opened iTunes and added the file like it was an individual mp3 file and it worked. I didn’t have to put the file in my folder at all.

Then it showed up in my ringtones and I added it to my phone. Only thing I have done to the file is rename it from some stupid thing called Buzz Ballad to just the song title.

This service seems to be ok my big complaint is that looking for songs is hard because none of the songs have their artist name. They seem to have the person’s name who uploaded them.

They have Lifehouse but doing a search of Hanging by a Moment brings that song by band with no name, nikki, LGC, jman76, christian dj and thats just the first 5 results. They need to organize their info better. It could be so much easier to find but its not.
