Reminders, Calendar: Not all tones available

Post by Stephen Hart » Fri Feb 15, 2013 2:01 pm

Here's a strange one, or at least it seems strange to me.
If I go to set a ringtone for a phone number, all my custom ringtones are available.
But If I want to set a tone for Reminders or Calendar, only about half are available. And I can't see any rhyme or reason.

Here's a test I did:

I found a tone that was in iTunes, and should have synced to my iPhone (I have sync all tones checked).
I dragged it out of iTunes to the desktop. Then I deleted it from iTunes. Then I synced.
Then I dragged it back into iTunes and synced again.
It did not appear in the Reminders list of available tones.

Maybe there's something about how I made those tones that's screwed up from the point of view of the iPhone.
