Hello Jodee,

In idle mode, press the Menu soft key.
Hightlight Settings and press Select.
Highlight Set Sound and press Select.
The following options are available:
Shop Tones
Default Ringtones
Downloaded Ringtones

Highlight Downloaded Ringtones and press Select.
Browse to the song you wish to use as the ringtone.

If this is what you have already done as described as "go into settings/profiles" - I was mistaken as to what you meant.
If this is different from what you have tried, please continue.

After going into Downloaded Ringtones you do not see the appropriate song, please respond saying so.

How was the song downloaded to the phone? Through the WAP browser which allows you to shop for ringtones?

    Sorry, you need to enter Incoming Calls after entering Set Sounds to get the options for Downloaded Ringtones.

    To purchase a ringtone for download,
    you can navigate in idle mode, press Menu
    Highlight AT&T Mall and select.
    Highlight Shop Tones and press the Connect key. From there you are able to find compatible ringtones to download and follow the on-screen instructions in order to purchase it.

I bought samsung s3310 but my mobile is not connecting with pc by data cable. with mobile I haven't got any cd.

All you need to do is go to settings -> phone settings -> PC connections -> select mass storage and save......... Now when you connect the phone to your pc via the data cable, all the necessary installations of usb drivers and such things will complete automatically. You dont need to install any softwares manually. All the installation will occur instantly after you connect (setting of mass storage is very important). The Next Time you connect your mobile to your PC, the memory card on your phone will just act like a pen drive.................... ( I dot use any softwares like samsung pc studio or anything)

Samsung i616, Ringtone file corrupted

Best way I have found is to use explorer and browse into your mobile device and search for a folder called "volatile". I copied every wierd looking folder that started with XME or such. There were like 999 of them on my phone. Once they were removed, everything went back to normal!

How to unlock Samsung A117


Insert ANY unaccepted SIM card in the phone and then turn the phone on, follow the steps in 1 to 4 below to enter all the codes. The phone will states "Wrong card" at the end of step 2 and "network lock deactivated" at the end of step 4 if you do everything right so pls take your time to enter the code or follow the instruction correctly at each step. When entering some of the zeros at steps 3 and 4 your phone may display the zero as hyphen or minus (-), dont worry, just count when entering the zero to ensure you enter just the right numbers of zeros. Now let's begin... 1/ Put any unaccepted SIM card in your SAMSUNG SGH Phone, turn the phone on, it will display "WRONG CARD"

2/ At the wrong card screen, type *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#

3/ Now remove the battery with the SIM card, Put the battery back and turn the phone on again without the SIM card, it will display "Insert SIM card" 4/ At the insert SIM card screen/end of step 3 above type #7465625*638*00000000#

At the end of step 4 phone will show "network lock deactivated" 5/ Now Reinsert your unaccepted card or any other unaccepted SIM card in the phone and enjoy your unlocked phone!

My LG 600g won't let other people send me ringtones, or music, i get them, but then not be able to do anything with them, not listen to them, not move them to other places on my phone, or even use them as...

The problem is the LG600g uses .mid and .amr format files, so anything in mp3 won't play on it.
This really should be noted on the website (tracfone or net10's), but its not.

Here are some instructions for making real music ringtones (though the quality isn't great):
So for cropping songs I recommend following their instructions and you can use the converter listed there or use this one for a conversion that sounds a little better.
