A ringtone too far

I will say that I am very disappointed with Apple’s approach to ringtones. The approach being that I can only use approved ringtones, which I need to buy.

I have a set of ringtones which I like to use, they are not song based, but just little MP3 files which I have picked up over time. I was able to use them on my Motorola RAZR with no problem, so why should I be locked out from using them on my iPhone.

This is very disappointing. While it is a great little device, I am beginning to find this “walled gardern” to be overly restrictive. And I think if Apple wants the iPhone to have the same level of success that the iPod is having, they will need to start opening it up.
