Important: If you want to transfer a ringtone longer than 40 seconds to iPhone, you must select Transfer to iPhone before clicking Start or use the Manager to transfer. Do not transfer it via iTunes, for the newer version of iTunes can load ringtones longer than 40 seconds, though, it won’t allow them to be transferred.

After transference, go to your iPhone and apply the new ringtone. You will find that you can get rid of the 40-second restriction.
