If the songs are in other format (having extension different such as WMV, mp3 etc) which is not supported by your mobile to be a ringtone than you can not do this.

Either you have to download the same file with extension which the other ringtone have, or use the one which already provided.

For more info contact to the Sony Erricsson directly for your model and its compatibility options.

Thanks

    There is some problem either with the memory card, and may be the Ringtone setup wizard, which need to go for Manual check up by a Technician.

    Either you can try to format the Memory card and put it back. or go to a Technician for repairing.

    Thanks for using FixYa. Have a Nice Day

Can the ringtone be changed on a Samsung GT E2550? If so - how?


This can be achieved using a microSD card formatted in the phone. In Settings menu, PC Connections, set the phone to Mass storage. Connect to computer and upload your ringtone file to the music folder.
Go to Menu, My files, Memory card, Music. Select your ringtone and under options select Copy to phone.
Now go to Settings, Profiles, select profile, Options, Edit, Call ringtone, Change, Music, Select your ringtone, then press Back repeatedly until you get back to initial screen.
Worked forme!

Cannot convert mp3 into ringtone for my samsung rant.. Been to various websites to convert but no luck... pls help


who is your service provider? you will need to send yourself what is called a "jump code" so you can download the ringtone after you upload it off of your computer to a phone uploader, or send it to yourself via SMS from the phone uploader. if your service provider is Sprint, go here: http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/

Unable to upload my own ringtones from my computer


If you have the music on your computer you can send it in a message to the phone and then open the message and apply it as "use as ring tone". Or if you have an old phone that allows you to down load it to the phone directly, then you can send it from that phone in a message to the other phone, open and apply as "ring tone".
