Ringtones: My Collection

Posted on July 24, 2008 by Gene

As you’ve guessed from the… well, eclectic nature of the sounds collected here, I’ve got some unique ringtones on my iPhone. I found them all here and there on the internet, most of them are from the actual owners who’ve posted them in one form or another on the web. So, I’ll share.
(These files are iPhone Ringtones, in .m4r format. They’re AAC files, so you should be able to play and convert them in any app that supports AAC like Quicktime Player.)
