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!

I had the same problem until i got a 2gb memory card and conected the usb to my pc.... if it does not automatically make the folder for "mymusic" and "myimages" then you have to make the folders yourself... all you have to do is right click in the box the comes up when you plug your phone in and click on "new folder" and name it "mymusic" and do the same with your "myimages" folder.... that should be all you have to do..... NOW TO ADD MUSIC..... YOU HAVE TO HIGHLIGHT ALL THE MUSIC YOU WANT ON YOUR PHONE AND THEN MOVE IT TO THE "MYMUSIC" FOLDER.... now thyat is all i had to do..... im so sorry if that doesnt help you

The problem with the ZTE C79 is that the ringtones option is locked by Metro PCS because they want you to buy from them. You have to put money into your "Metro Minutes" account and then you can download until you've used up your minutes.
The best way to get music/pictures on is to have a card reader either built into your pc or one that you put the card in and plug into your pc. Just plugging the phone into your usb port will not work. You have to add them to the memory card without the card being in the phone. Unless you have the correct drivers. If you know where to get these drivers, please let the rest of us know.
Emailing from your email account does work with pictures, so it may work with small file ringtones as well.
Also playlists can only be 50 songs long. If you have more than that, like me, you will have to create several playlists to get all the music added. Otherwise you have to play each song individually.

How do I save ringtones to my ZTE C78 phone?

Go to the website and you can download ringtones. the trick is to download the ringtone twice. it will save to your phone. the only drawback is that you can't hear the ringtone before you download it, but you can always try again. this is a free ringtone site.

I have downloaded a ringtone from a video that I would like to apply. I can't seem to get it to accept it from the memory card.

It could be that the ringtone isn't in a compatible format in compliance to your phone. What's the model of your phone, and the filetype of the ringtone?

I have a zte c79 cellphone that has an mp3. player the phone came without the software disk to install the program that enables me to transfer mp3's and pictures. however it came with the USB cord. but...

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

Trouble shooting my phone

Some phones dont accept the different ringtones we now have. You know how they offer poly and mono? Perhaps you bought a mono ringtone when your phone only use poly or maybe the other way around.

If you bought a ringtone by a tv add, then that may be the case.
If you have internet on the phone, and bought it off there it will depend which phone company you are with. Look up their site etc. , and have a look at their help section.

With vodaphone, I know that once you buy it from the internet on the mobile, you download it autmatically. But you have to save it.

Hope that helps somewhat.
