Rename the file and change the extension from M4A to M4R, but before that you will need to click YES to change the filename.

Now your iPhone should recognize your ringtones, so double-click it to add to iTunes, so you can find it under the Ringtones tab in your Library. Connect your Apple mobile phone and browse in iTunes for the ringtones synced to your device if you want to add it to your iPhone ring tone, so select Sync Ringtones and pick the ringtones you want to add to your mobile phone. Now simply click Apply.

Go to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone, and eliminate those default Apple ringtones.
