Apple is also now offering ringtones through the iTunes Music Store for $1.29. Apple said that over 30,000 ringtones are available from all four major labels. OS 3.1 also brings support for voice control over Bluetooth, pasting phone numbers into the dialer, and keeping a copy of the original video when trimming videos.
