    I'm sorry if this is a repeat post, I did not find anything when I did a search. There are many ringtones software widely available. But I do not like to install additional software's on my computers that I use for work.

    iTunes is pre-installed and used by most computer owns. Why not use us? It only takes few steps, and the ringtones sound great on the Blackberry.

    1: Right click on your song of choice (DRM free)
    2: Chose "Get Info" and navigate to the "Options" tab.
    3: Take of note the two check boxes labeled: Start time & Stop time.
    4: Chose your desired start time and end time and then exit out by choosing "OK"
    5: Right on click the same song again, select "Convert Selection to AAC"
    6: A new file will be created below the select song. That new file is your cropped and ready to go song.
    7: Drag the song to your desktop, rename the extension to .mp3 and send it on over to your Blackberry.

    Your done. Don't forget to uncheck the start and stop time to have your song play normally again.

    Great instructions. Thanks! But I'm new to BB. Can you explain "send it on over to your Blackberry" for me?

    This will work even though iTunes songs are protected and encrypted?

    In version 7.7.1 there is no "convert to AAC" at least on mine. Only cnvert to MP3 which it won't do on a protected song.

    The song is to be DRM free.

    Oh ok yeah I've heard of the DRM but I don't understand it and I see you can buy that version of a song on iTunes but what are the advantages and disadvantages. I know what DRM stands for too just confused by it's meaning.

    What does this mean, and how do I do it. Also, what is DRM?

    Thanks!!

    Okay, CrackBerry n00b here. How do you drag it over to your 'Berry? I've got the mp3 on my desktop, but don't see anything to drag it to. I don't think my Mac is recognizing my 8130 Pearl. I see no icon for it on my desktop. Also, how do you right click on a Mac?
