    I had the same problem, I have been trying to tranfer music to my micro sd card and it keep showing that there is no music when I know I put it on there. How do you save the music to the phone?

    To load ring-tones someone has to either email it to you or send it through your blue-tooth. Yes I'm like the rest of you. Metro pcmess made all this sound good but if I would have known I was gonna have as much trouble with this phone I would have never switched this is my forth replacement. But like they say everything that sounds good ain't always good for you, and Metro pcmess has proven that. When I plug my usb cord it don't show and I can't down load to my mp3 player, sometime my phone just locks up for no reason, I get alot of no support files can anyone help with that

When you plug in the usb cord somtimes i'll get a box asking what i want to use windows media player or open a folder with the contense. Then some times i get the add new hardware wizard which doesnot find the program to run the hardware correctly.
so the only way i found to load mp3s onto the ZTE C79 is to get a micro sd car and reader. when i plug i in a box comes up with the same results windows media player or a folder option i click the folder option. and if you have mp3s in your windows media player then right click on a song and open file location it will then tell you wether they are mp3 format or wahat drag and drop the mp3 format songs into the my music folder which is in the removable disk folder . As long as they are mp3 they will play on the phone. as for ringtones the only way i found to load them is to actually record them with the record memo tool in tools. which sucks because they usually end up being all distorted or very low volume. So if anyone know how to load ringtones please let me know

How do I program transfer numbers into the 12 buttons on the right hand side on my Panasonic KX-T7730?

I'm afraid to ask what you mean by "transfer numbers". The buttons are programmed by pressing PROGRAM the button, dialing a number sequence and STORE. Here's the fear. If you're trying to :"transfer" a call outside the system, then you need to enable trunk-to-trunk calling in the box, insert an access code, usually 9, and have certain features on the line. If you're trying to put inside numbers there, especially extensions, they'd be better on the left side buttons where you can monitor them. Hint: the DSS console works wonders.

Free Downloads for ZTE C79 Cell Phone from MetroPCS

WHat up? Ok to get the ringtones to your phone (which I have searched for two days to find a solution) do the following

1.) get your desired .mp3, or .mid ringtone file and have it on your pc.
2.) log into your email (yahoo, hotmail, etc), create an email and attach the .mp3 file. Make sure the .mp3 file in under 500k in size.
3.) in to TO: box enter the following ,<yourphonenumber> and send it.
4.) check your message box when your phone chimes.
5.) press the Get button to download the file to your phone. If your file is over 500k it may not download.
6.)Now go to your inbox
7.) press the Browse button to stop the file from playing.
8.) make sure the file is selected, press the Up button (Top outter ring of the middle menu button)
9.) press the options button, select "use higlighted object" and save it to your phone.
10.) the file will now be in the MyTUnes folder and you can now set it as your main ringtone or a contact ring tone. (I'm typing this from memory so my menu selection names may be off a little but this shold get yall going. I was HYPE when I found this solution. I'm now searching on how to get the games on it.

Hope this helps!

How can i upload photos onto my computer without bluetooth, if i have a lead but no disk to upload software. is there a driver or something i can download? thanks

if your phone has a card like sd,mmc...etc. you can use a card reader/writer to transfer those phoyos to your computer.

if your phone has no card, you can use data cable if your phone has an accessory like this.

How do I down load mp3 music to my LG Viewty mobile

Hello patprice16,

There are several possible answers to this question. First, and foremost, would be mp3 files from your computer. In order to do this you will need a Data Cable and, perhaps, some software. This is usually called a 'Media Kit' and is available from your service provider (Verizon, AT&T, etc.). Your phone may have come with this kit already depending on which provider you use. If you look through the items you rec'd with your phone you may see a USB cable that connects on one end to your phone and on the other end to your computer. There is probably a software disk also included if you have this cable. If you have neither you need to contact your service provider and get them in order to transfer mp3 files to your phone. The second way would be to purchase the files through your service provider and download them to your phone through the provider's network. This, obviously, gets rather expensive.

Hope that helps :)
