“Ring once” on the iPhone

I got to give credit to Nokia for the “ring once” feature on their phones. It is a handy feature which spares me from frantically rummaging thru my bag just to silence an endlessly ringing cellphone.

The iPhone, however, does not have such a feature. iPhones loop ringtones endlessly & embarrassingly.

The workaround

  1. I downloaded an mp3 of a single “ring!” and loaded it up in GarageBand,
  2. Added enough “silence” to fill up the 40 second limit, and
  3. Exported to iTunes

Below is the video version of the entire process:
