The 7960 will absolutely play custom ringtones.

Unfortunately even though it would seem the phone should support the ability
to play custom ring tones, at present it only supports the internal tones
--- Extract from the SIP 6.0 Firmware Release Notes ---
In RFC-3261, the Alert-Info header is specified as a URL. When the
Alert-Info header is received, the phone downloads the file from the URL and
plays it as the alternate ring tone. This release does not support any
external ringers. Only the tones and ring patterns that are already internal
to the phone can be selected and played as an alternate ring tone.
In this release, the Alert-Info header consists of a name of an internal
tone or ringing pattern that can be played, as shown in the following
There is no need to add a file extension (.au, .wav) to these names because
the names are internal to the phone. When an Alert-Info header is received,
the software scans the list of known tones and ringing patterns to find a
match. If the software finds a match, the phone plays that tone or ringing
pattern. If the software does not find a match, the phone plays the alert
ringing pattern as it does today.
