I was searching all over for a decent dial-up modem ringtone for my iPhone for the longest time, but just couldn’t find one that I liked. So I decided to make my own. It was a major pain in the ass. Seeing as how I haven’t used a dialup modem since around the year 2000, and I only had one system that still has a dial-up modem. Then I had to find a dialup service to test with. Then record. Then edit. Then convert. But after much doing and a little geeking out, the result is 10 seconds of retro goodness that will make your friends jealous. I settled on this 10 second slice as my favorite in the modem handshake sequence. I think it makes the best ringtone and is the perfect length too.

So go ahead and download my freshly made 56k Dialup Modem Handshake Ringtone for your iPhone. Once you’ve downloaded the ringtone simply double click and it will be imported into iTunes as a ringtone. Enjoy!

UPDATE: as requested in the comments below, here is a 56k Modem Ringtone in .mp3 format for Android users as well. Go nuts.

I recently started using Windows 7 (as a Parallels Virtual Machine on my new MacBook Pro) and wanted to move my iTunes database (including my Library and Settings) from my old XP laptop to Windows 7 so I can sync my iPhone and not lose any of my information. Regardless of my less than standard setup, this article will explain how to move your iTunes from Windows XP to Windows 7, while preserving all of your media and settings, including iPhone information.

Overall this process is relatively simple. I would highly suggest having an external USB Hard Drive to perform the transfer with. If you do not have an external USB Hard Drive, you can certainly transfer the files over the network if you are capable of doing such.

First you will need to backup/copy the following folders from your XP computer to your external hard drive:

a. C:Documents and SettingsusernameApplication DataApple ComputeriTunes

b. C:Documents and SettingsusernameLocal SettingsApplication DataApple ComputeriTunes

c. C:Documents and SettingsusernameMy DocumentsMy MusiciTunes

Once you have copied these folders from your XP machine to your external drive, connect the drive to your Windows 7 system. Be sure to have iTunes installed on your Windows 7 system.

Copy the folders from above, to the following directories on your Windows 7 computer:

a. Copy the folder in a. above and paste to C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunes

b. Copy the folder in b. above and paste to C:UsersusernameAppDataLocalApple ComputeriTunes

c. Copy the folder in c. above and paste to C:UsersusernameMusiciTunes

Once you’ve completed the above steps, launch iTunes on your Windows 7 computer and make sure that your Library and other settings are intact. If everything looks good, you can then connect your iPod or iPhone to sync to your new Windows 7 system.

Good luck!
