    In Mango, you can have custom ringtones. To get the ringtone across, you have to set the genre to "ringtone" in Zune. In Windows Phone connector for Mac, you can't do this as you can't edit any of the information for the music files - but it DOES seem to pull in genre information from iTunes. So can someone with a Mango phone with access to a Mac try amending the genre information for a song in iTunes and transferring it across with WP connector to their phone to see if it'll work as a custom ringtone?

    Thanks!

    I am also a MAC user. Am going to play around w/ this as well. I know making ringtones in itunse is super easy. I used to do it all the time w/ my iphone. One of the few things I actually miss about it.

    Apparently, we're covered - the new version of the Mac WP7 connector software (the mango-ready release) covers ringtones. Wahey!

    Awesome. Stupid question, when does Mango go live? Or did it already.

    Mango hasn't launched officially yet, but it's rumoured to be sometime next month. (September) :)

    Just FYI changing the genre of the song in iTunes to "ringtone" does work. This is how I loaded my ringtones before the new WP Connector came out yesterday.

    Thank you! I was so confused as I kept seeing people post about Mango this Mango that. So can I use the ringtones w/ my current WP7 by changing the genre?

    You need Mango to use custom ringtones in the official way.
