 How well can we communicate through digital means? What about body language? Facial Expression? Location?

“¼ people pay attention in conference calls”, says Philip Vanhoutte, Managing Director EMEA of Plantronics. Several studies over the past decade consolidate this view, with some listing as little as 10% paying full attention.

How to put your own message tones for your iPhone

This is a tutorial on how to put your own tones for messages such as SMS, Email etc. The main reason for this is because Apple doesn't let you choose to make your own message tone and sync it via iTunes like how you would normally do for your custom ringtones.

You don't need to Jailbreak your iPhone/iPod Touch.

Requirements:

- iPhone/iPod Touch (Any generation) This can probably work for iPad as well.
- iPhone Explorer  you can download it from here www.macroplant.com/iphoneexplorer/  You can run it on both Windows and Mac and its free. Unfortunately the other iPod versions are not free from them.
- Message tones; Usually few seconds, you can also check this site for popular tones. You can download any for free! www.zedge.net
- iTunes or any other Audio Converter (Needs to convert to .aiff)

How to do it:

1. You need to get your message tone ready. You can download some from here www.zedge.net. I downloaded the Skype message tone.

2. Add it to iTunes and right click it to convert to .aiff. If it doesn't show this option but MP3 or AAC. Just go to iTunes Preferences - General Tab - Import Settings - and change the Import using option to AIFF and you can change quality there as well. Or you can use any other Audio converter that converts to .aiff.
