How to Create Custom iPhone Ringtones With GarageBand

By Alexia Petrakos

Nintey-nine cents isn't a huge price to pay for a song, but if you already have a gigantic collection of music in your iTunes library and want to use one of those songs as a ringtone for your iPhone, 99 cents is a bit of a stretch. Apple now allows user-created custom ringtones for the iPhone. All you need is iLife's latest version of Garageband and iTunes and you're ready to turn any song in your iTunes library into a 40-second looped ringtone.

Step 1
Launch iTunes.

Step 2
Launch GarageBand.

Step 3
Select "New Music Project" if this is the first time you've opened GarageBand.

Step 4
Click "Create." There is no need to type in a name for the project.

Step 5
Select all tracks (if there are any) on the GarageBand workspace, click "Track" > "Delete Track" to start with a fresh work area.

Step 6
Drag and drop the song you want to make into a ringtone from iTunes into GarageBand. This will make a new track you can edit.

Step 7
Click the "Cycle Region" button on the bottom of the screen--the one with two arrows looped in on itself.

Step 8
Drag the yellow bar above the track's timeline, called the "region loop tool," to the spot you want to begin your ringtone.

Step 9
Expand the region loop tool by clicking on one of the ends and dragging it along the timeline to the part of the song you want to use as a ringtone. The limit is 40 seconds.

Step 10
Click "Share" on the menu bar and select "Send Ringtone to iTunes". GarageBand converts the song to the .m4r format that iPhones use for ringtones, and it will save it to your iTunes ringtone library.

Step 11
Sync your iPhone to iTunes to upload the new ringtones.

By Ayo

No matter what your iphone features are, you can easily extend the battery life for your iPhone.

Step 1
You can extend the battery life of your iPhone by shutting off Wi-Fi. If left on, the iPhone will constantly scan for nearby Wi-Fi networks. This will rob your iPhone of it's precious daily and overall battery life.
In the first step Go to Settings from your iPhone's home page.

Step 2
In the second step, while in Settings section please select Wi-Fi

Step 3
In the third and final step, while in the Wi-Fi section please turn off Wi-Fi by flipping the virtual lever to the off position. This will save the battery life of your iPhone. Try this for a couple days and you will definitely notice a huge difference in battery life. You will not have to charge the iPhone as much. I do this all the time and only have to charge my phone at the end of the day.

How to get a free apple iPhone

By vaughng

How many times have you heard someone say "there's nothing free in life"? Probably more times than you care to remember. Well fortunately, those people are absolutey wrong. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years, you've no doubt heard of the most poplar piece of cell phone technology in history, the Apple iPhone. The Apple iPhone is so sought after, that retailers often have a difficult time keeping them in stock, and when the latest 3G iPhone was released, the were selling for thousands of dollars on popular online auction sites.

So what does this have to do with me you're probably asking. We'll I'm here to show you how and where you can get your very own iPhone absolutely free. By simply filling out a form, and completing a survey or two, you can get an brand new Apple iPhone, and usually some extra goodies, shipped right to your front door.

Step 1
Get a good offer site - The first step to receive your free iPhone is to find a good offer. There are lots of "Incentive Sites" out there that have stocked up on iPhones and are willing to give them away for free if you assist them with a survey or completing an online offer. At the bottom of this article you will find a link to the free iPhone offer I used to get a new phone absolutely free.

Step 2
Find out the terms - Each phone offer is going to have some terms you will need to complete. Some will simply be a survey and you will need to answer some questions in order to receive your free phone. Others will have several program offers to complete in order to be eligible for the phone. This is nothing to worry about, as the offers that you have to choose from are generally very reasonable, and well less than the cost of an iPhone.

Step 3
Confirm your registration - In most cases, after you complete the offers, you will receive an email that you need to confirm in order to enter your shipping address. This is solely a security measure, so you are not signed up without your authorization.

Step 4
Submit your shipping details - After confirming your email address is valid, you will generally be directed to the registration page where you let the company know where to send your free Apple iPhone. Make sure you enter the correct shipping address so you get your goodies sent to the right place. There's nothing worse than making a stupid typo and not receiving your stuff.

Step 5

Keep an eye on the mail box - Most of the free iphone offers state that you will receive your phone within 4-6 weeks, however this is just a general guideline. In many cases, you will receive your phone quicker than this. Keep an eye on the mail box because it may get there faster than you expect.

Step 6
Even if you already have an Apple iPhone, that shouldn't stop you from taking advantage. Get yourself a new iphone and sell your current one on ebay for a profit...or sell the new one when it arrives and make even more money. This is a great way to make some extra cash.

This method of getting a free iPhone truly does work. It's not a scam. Log on to the below web address. It will direct you one of the best iPhone offers going at the moment. You also get a free $50 dollar iTunes gift card so you can load up your phone with some music. These offers change often, so be sure to take advantage while it's still running.

How to Use the New 3G iPhone

By Kyoko Walton

Multitask with the 3G iPhone. Check e-mail, Internet maps and talk on the phone – all at the same time. You can even watch videos while talking to someone over the phone. You won’t even need to access WiFi to take advantage of the 3G iPhone’s multitasking features.


Make calls and use the Web with your 3G iPhone

Step 1
Make a call on the Web. Tap the phone icon, a green box with a white phone icon in the center. Check the range via the status icon to determine if you can make a call from your present location. The signal’s range is indicated by the multiple bars depicted on the icon. If you have many bars, then you are able to make calls easily. If you have few bars, then expect some delay, lack of connection or possibly no ability to execute a call. Select your numeric keypad. This icon resembles nine tiny square buttons on a phone. Tap in the number you wish to call, then tap Call. Visit the Favorites icon to look up frequently used numbers. Visit the Contacts icon to add new people and phone numbers to your iPhone. Tap on Recent Calls to return a missed call.

Step 2
Tap your Settings button, then tap on General, Network and Enable 3G. This turns on 3G for access to the cellular network when there is no Internet connection available. When you want to make a call while surfing the Internet, this feature can be very handy, especially if you are trying to get directions.

Step 3
Enable your e-mail and Web browsing. Go to Settings. Tap on General. Tap on Network. Select Data Roaming On.

Step 4
Turn off iPhone radio transmitters. Select Airplane mode. You may still use WiFi on a plane if the law in a particular region allows it.

Step 5
Charge your iPhone by plugging the USB cable into the iPhone port and the other end in the 2.0 USB port on your computer. Make sure your computer is on, or risk draining your iPhone’s battery.

Step 6
Send a text message. Tap on the Plus sign and select from your contacts list and type your message. Click Send. To send to someone not already in your contacts, tap on the pen sign, then type the number and your message. Click Send.
