You can't actually do that.
If you have the original version Katana, the 6600, it's only plays polyphonic ringtones, in the qualcom format of QCB.
Freeringers.net has a good help section if you sign up with them, here's a cut and paste version.

You basically need a program to convert an mp3 to a wav file format. (like dbpower amp but there are many others, alot of them freeware).
Sound recorder on your computer applications, to pick a segment and crop the audio. Usually about 30 to 60 seconds is good enough. There's a file limit size on the Katana for downloads of about 100kb.
And a converter program that will convert wav to qcb. You can download an application from Qualcom Communications for free, or this little program called purevoice.
http://www.freeringers.net/apps/pvconv.exe
All you do is little drag the wav file over this application and it automatically compiles in about 3 seconds, a qcb file into the same folder.
http://www.qctconnect.com/products/purevoice_downloads.html
Provides the full version of purevoice convertor so you can listen to the quality of the qcb file.

You'll need an application to convert the MP3 or CD to a WAV file. We suggest this free tool:
dBpowerAmp Converter 10.1 (Download and install it)

You'll also need PureVoice for QCP conversion:
PureVoice Converter (No installation. Right click "Save Target As...")

If you're running Windows Vista you'll need the Windows XP version of Sound Recorder:
Sound Recorder (Right click link, "Save Target As...", save to "C:\Windows\System32\")


Plug in for downloaded ringtone - s_win.gif Conversion Steps:

Note: If you want to rip a song from a CD, replace step 1 with these instructions.

  1. We'll assume you're converting a file named "test.mp3" for this guide. Insert your own file name instead. Run dBpowerAmp and select the "test.mp3" file and click "Open".
  2. Change the drop downs to "Wave", "16 Bit (CD)", "8000 Hz", "1 'Mono'", Output To: "Folder", and "Browse" to select your "Desktop".
  3. Click "Convert >>" and once it's completed click "Finished" and you'll have a file named "test.wav" on your Desktop.
  4. Run Sound Recorder (included with Windows) and from the "File" menu "Open..." the "test.wav" file created in step 3. (if you can't find Sound Recorder, see Needed Applications above)
  5. Shorten the ringtone to 30 seconds or less. You can also crop it so it starts at the beginning of the choirs. To crop the audio clip, use the "Edit" menu to "Delete Before Current Position" or "Delete After Current Position". [?]
  6. Click the "File" menu and select "Save" which will overwrite the "test.wav" file.
  7. Grab and drag the icon for "test.wav" and drop it on top of the PureVoice icon "pvconv". It will convert and create a new file named "test.qcp", almost like magic.

Cant download ringtones to my LG shine phone


you have to have a memory card in your phone for it to show up as an attached device.....otherwise you will need a program that will recognize the device to transfer data to it. i recommend getting a cheap little micro sd card so that you can simply pull up the device from <my computer> and copy the ringtones/mp3s straight to the removable disk.

good luck

Iphone ringtone wont play


I had the same problem. I hooked my phone back up to iTunes and synced my phone. Ringtone disappeared from phone, but remained in my computer's iTunes. Then I added it back to my phone through iTunes by syncing ringtones specifically. Here is step by step:
1. Plug in iPhone 2. Sync Phone 3. Click on iPhone, open Ringtones tab 4. Check "Sync ringtones" box and Select your Ringtone 5. Click Sync
This worked for my phone. Hope it helps. I used my phone to download ringtone.

Hi


You can not play mp3's on this phone ---- Audio Playback: The Motorola C261 does not come with an MP3 player. This phone comes with built in polyphonic ringtones, which means you can download simple MIDI files from the Internet and upload them through your phone, or simply download them via GRPS (if GRPS is built in). We do not recommend purchasing polyphonic ringtones from pay-per-use services such as television commercials, because the C261 is capable of receiving them as MIDI files which are common on the Internet.
