    So at this moment the new episodes are on the german TV.
    Great, now the ringtones on our I-Phones!

  18. Thomas says:

    I just downloaded the 24 and The Unit ringtones two nights ago. Now I notice my battery life is horrible. In a span of about 20 minutes I lost 7% of my battery. Are these files legit or do they contain something more sinister that’s draining my batter?

  19. Maria says:

    Thank you SO much. Like many others, the 24 ringtone was also one of my faves that I lost when getting an iPhone. I have been hunting for a while and so am ever grateful to you for coming up with this. Great quality too! Isn’t it great the appreciation has lasted for almost 3 years!

  20. dkpw says:

    Great quality on the 24 RT – thanks very much for making that available.

  24. I just read the posts and it sounds great for me and it’s because I have an Apple iPhone, but can anyone here know’s where I can get the CTU ringtones without losing my other ringtones?

  25. ming says:

    My iTunes said successfully sync with iPhone. The CTU ringtone appears under iPod but I cannot select to be ringtone. It is not in my ringtone list. Am I missing something here?

  26. Catherine says:

    Hey, this is fantastic. Such a fan of Jack’s and you now. My children can’t quite believe it!

  29. Dave says:


    Thanks loads


  30. Administrator says:


    Check above. I’ve uploaded the Unit chirp Ringtone for you optomized for the iPhone.



  31. vinnie says:

    this is FANTASTIC! What a great way to bring holiday cheer!

    One question. What can you do on the “chirp” from the tv show “The Unit” I found it on a few sites, but only one site had the real one, but for some reason it either wont loop on the phone and only chirps once, or it wont go on at all! It’s made on all sites for windows based phones. I am clueless.

    Thank again!!

  32. Laurence says:

    Thank you very much!!! The best and easiest 24 ringtone I’ve found for my new iPhone! I’ve been waiting for this too long! Thanks!

  33. Patrick says:

    Great ringtone. Funny story. My kids were over in Scotland (we’re from Canada) and they heard this ring at the airport on someones phone. They turned around quickly thinking that I had somehow flown over there. Distinctive ring indeed.

  34. Pete says:

    Works great on the download and install. Though not a fan of 24 (sorry I really liked ‘The Unit’ myself), this ringtone transcends most ambient and loud noises. I am able to hear this over most everything else, but in itself it is not rude or obtrusive.


  35. Marius says:

    You’re a star! Greetings from Singapore. Just bought an I phone (I know… I’m late) and had the 24 ringtone for the last 6 years! Now converted. Cheers.

  36. Renee says:

    Thanks so much! 🙂 I LOVE 24

  37. Matt says:

    For those who care works beautifully on the palm pre, just drag and drop into the ring tone folder =D

  38. Dani says:

    Just what I wanted. Thank you!

  39. skip says:

    Cheers mate – my wife wanted this one and now I’ll get a blowie!

  40. Mike says:

    Thanks a million. I’ve been looking for this for years.

  41. Daniel says:

  45. Stephan says:

    Okay !!!! I got it for all us Mac newbies or others with problems. When you save it (I saved it to desktop) you have to right click the saved file and go to “Get Info” once it opens up that window go under the Name and Extensions field and erase the “txt.” part of the file name. It will then ask you if you want to use the file as an “m4r” when you select that option it will convert the text to it itunes friendly file which you can then just drag and drop to itunes ringtone and TA FREAKIN DA!

  46. Stephan says:

    Well I can save it to my desktop and open under quicktime to hear it, but I can’t get to itunes. Do I need a special program or a Mac Pro? I am knew to the Mac so if someone could pleas walk me trough the proper steps? Thank you i need this so baaaad!

  47. Stephan says:

    What am I doing wrong??? I’ve command S, control clicked, double finger and \saved as\ to desktop. I can’t copy it to ringtones. It’s either a bunch of text or a copy of the website. Please help me. I have all current updates, 3g iphone, and brand new mac book.


  48. donotfold says:

  56. Danny says:

  57. Bud says:

    I can get the ringtone into the ringtone folder on my computer, but it won’t sync down to the iPhone. Do I need to do anything special, and am I being obtuse?

  58. Darren Hughes says:

    Dude, you are the man. Just put this on my Iphone and it works perfect. Cheers, you made my day!

  59. weezy says:

  60. Murielle says:

    Thanks MattD,

    I was doing it wrong.

    Now it works.

    Thanks very much.


  61. MattD says:


    Try right clicking (or control clicking) this link and selecting “Save As”.

  62. Murielle says:

    Never been able to download the file.
    On my MacBook Pro with Mac OS 10.4.11, the link displays as a very long webpage full of garbage.
    Already have a CTU Ringtone on my desktop that was on my Blackberry. Changed the extension for .m4r and another for .m4a
    iTunes 8 refuses to import any of them.
    Anyone can help me?

  63. jonkino says:

    Brilliant, now got CTU on my phone – my mates will be jealous, much better than the ringtones that came with the iPhone.

    Thanks man.

  64. jonkino says:

    No thank you so much – at last!! I just got my new iphone 3g and have wanted the ctu ringtone ever since I saw the first season. And now, hopefully, I can get it on my iphone. I am really excited.

    Now, if someone wanted to make me very happy, I have been after for years the original sound for the Pearl and Dean ident. Does anyone know if this was ever made as a ring tone??

  65. moski says:

    Chloe? Thank you, you are a life saver!

  66. Gatekeeper726 says:

  74. Dave says:

    Thanks! For MAC folks, download to desktop, change file name by deleting .txt on end of name. Then say yes when computer asks are you sure. Double click on file, it should auto load into your ringtones folder.

  75. Doug says:

  89. Ron says:

    I’m a new iPhone owner and had the 24 ringtone on my Blackberry 8830. I spent 2 hours this AM trying to get the ringtone and all the sites want to rip you off by charging a monthly fee. I came across your website early this evening and was so pleased to be able to download the ringtone. I am 63 and trying to keep up technologically………..thank you

  91. nigel says:

    many thanks for the ringtone, very cooooool. Can I get it for a standard mobile pleeeeeaaaase?

  92. Administrator says:

    Still works for me with the latest updates. Also, Garageband will not let you export a ringtone that is longer than 30 seconds, so it should be that size already.

  93. Mike says:

    It wont work, it needs to be less than 30 seconds to work with the latest versions, this is too long to work as a ringtone

  94. Dexter says:

    Thanks – Thought for awhile I would have to keep my Treo just for the 24 ringtone

  95. the real jack bauer says:

  97. Kiran says:

    @ Sam : Right click on a macbook : Hold ctrl key and hit the button attached to the track pad!! Better yet, go to Sytem Prefs -> Keyboard and Mouse – > Check the checkbox that says ‘Tap Trackpad using two fingers for secondary click” . Now just hit the trackpad with 2 fingers (at the same time) to get a right click!!

    Good Luck!

  98. Sam says:

    How do you do the right-click on a macbook? Can you explain the process please? Need CTU in my life!!!

  99. jiffy says:

    have latest i tunes and i phone updates but just get a text file when download….help!!!

  100. Lexel says:

    On old firmware you just need to rename the file frome m4r to m4a
    (transfered to iphone using IToner)

  106. Administrator says:

    It doesn’t appear to work with older versions. Someone else had the same issue and it worked fine after they updated.

  107. Dan says:

    Hey I just tried this with 1.11 and it iTunes 7.5 and it says that the file can not be copied because it can not be played on the iPhone?

  114. 24 Watcher says:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have been wanting this ever since the show started.

    Okay. Now if someone can find the first Dolby THX promo to download as a ringtone, I would be in hog heaven.

  115. Administrator says:

    Thanks to all for visiting. We’ve moved the actual file to a high availability server so hopefully everyone should be able to download it.

    Special thanks to RS@ClueTrust for hosting the file.

    The process is Garage Band is remarkably easy. Big win for Apple. I’ve shared this with a bunch of friends today and they are very happy and excited to have custom ringtones on the iPhone again.

  116. Joe says:

    You rock!!! Thanks so much!!

    Thanks a lot!

    I always had that ringtone on my Blackberry, now it’s on my iPhone, too!

  119. Administrator says:

    FYI – You may need the latest version of the iPhone firmware and iTunes for this to work.
