I was at the Best Buy store last night and they explained it to me. I didn't realize it was just a memory card thing. I thought I was missing a cord or something I needed to hook the phone up to the computer. So, all good now. thanks!

to install games/apps:
Go to itunes store and on the side there is a button that says App Store. Click on this and there will be a whole range of apps. You can choose from games or fitness or heaps more! The are some for free and there are ones that cost money. To get one that costs money you will need a itunes voucher. To download a free or money one click the little button next to the app you want saying "get app". This will then go straight to your itunes library and will sync when u want it to.
to install music:
Create a new playist on itunes and name it iphone. Drag music files from your itunes libary into the iphone folder.
to put these onto your computer:
plug your iphone into your computor with the cord that was given with it. When your iphone shows up in the devices coloum click on it and in the bottom right hand corner there will be a button saying sync. Before clicking on it go to the music tab on your iphones page. Then click what playlist you want to install (in your case the iphone folder). The go back and click the sync button. Wait for your computor to sync all the things you want onto your iphone.
Repeat this everytime you want to download anything. U may not have to do the music thing.
the micro SD(smallest) goes into the phone the other 2 are adapters, mini for older PDA's, the largest goes into your PC (usually on newer models), if the pc does not have a slot for the sd, use a usb adapter to transfer music
You have to go into the "My Audios" folder on the phone to access the card tunes. (Menu > 4(Multimedia) > 6(Audios)) for a shortcut. Once you are in the folder, move the highlight to the song you want as a ring tone. Now hit (Options > 6(Move/Copy) > 1(Move)). Now the little icon by the song will be a picture of a speaker without a memory card in front of it. (If it has a memory card icon, it is still on the card) It is on the phone's internal memory now so you can push (Options > Set As > Ringtone/Ringer ID/Message Alerts). You should be good to go!
If you are on the main screen and push to the right, if you have the stuff synced correcltly, it should appear. Otherwise, you can go to the memory card manager under the Settings/Tools and move it to the correct spot. Hope this helps.
Simple solution, Alltel belives and enforces digital copyright management, while you can listen to your favorite tones and music, you will NOT be able to use them as ringtones, or use them with any of the features of the phone other then playing the tunes for entertainment. The only way to use files as ringtones is to purchase the files from alltel, or use their realtone jukebox, etc.
Instead of doing the sync music, try saving your music into your itunes account or on a flash drive. Than just plug your phone into the computer, click on settings, then tools, then USB mass storage. Open the file on your computer, than simply drag and drop your songs from the file on the computer or flash drive, into the phone's file folder. Drop it into your memory card on your phone or just in my music. (I personally recommend getting a micro SD card for the phone so you can hold more songs) good luck!
I FOUND THE PROBLEM! You need a CoreMicro Micro SD Adapter and the USB that goes with it. Mine said it was right-protected until a person on a website told me to move a white switch upwards on the adapter. Holding the Adapter facing you, make sure the switch on the left side is moved upwards. Put it in the USB port, and then into the computer jack. Go to WMP (windows media player) and go to your library. Right-click any song and click the "go to file location" button. That way you are at the actual file location and not a link to it for playing. You see a list of all the songs you have at the raw source. Make a folder and name it "Music". Drag the songs you want on your phone into the folder. They will disappear from the menu into the folder but not from the computer so you still have the music files on your computer. With the Music file in view, right-click and go to the "Send to" button and click on the "Removable Storage" button (or something that looks similar but the same words). A loading screen should pop up and start loading the files. You are done! Remove the USB and the Adapter, put the memory card in and charge er' up! It worked for me and i hope it works for you. Thanks.
