Ringtones

Does anyone have a recommendation for a company that provides ringtone downloads? The company we have been using seems to be going out of business and we're looking for a new provider. The company should be focused on B2B sales (a focus on education works too, but just not as likely to find) as opposed to selling ringtones to individual customers. We are looking to create ringtones from approximately 10 MP3s and offer them as downloads to alumni, fans, students, etc.
