With your first point. I don't want popular music as my ringtone. A nice chime like the Apple OS X 'Welcome' video's music - which I know, is from a recorded artist's album, but is instrumental - would be much better. Not necessarily Western Classical, but something better than 'Umbrella'.

....if it wasn't a clip of some song that gets annoying after about a day and which makes me on object of scorn whenever my phone rings in public. Where are the ringtones for grown-ups? Call me crazy but you might think that it would be including a few more discreet rings might be a good idea for a 600 dollar phone.
By the way, you won't have to pay Apple to put mp3's and AAC's on your iPhone. YOu can already do that with Ambrosia Software's iToner. It seems to wor quite well and doesn't require jailbreaking your phone in any way. Just install the software and drag and drop your files to the interface.
Now if I could just find some mp3's of plain ring tones. Anybody know of some good sources? Searching for "ringtones" results in an array of sleazy looking sites that make a Google search of the words "free Viagra" seem tame.
