I can't get unsupported objects such as ringtones through bluetooth.


To the best of my knowledge, this happens because Boost Mobile does not want you to be able to get ringtones from anywhere but through them. If someone sends you an MP3 file in a message, that file most certainly would be supported by your phone, because the Motorola i335 supports MP3 files. However, Boost Mobile can be greedy at times. The reason they tell you that the object is unsupported is because if they would let you download the object and allow you to save it to your phone, you would be able to use it as a ringtone like you want to. If you are given the capability to use files from the internet, friends' phones, etc. as ringtones, Boost Mobile loses money, because you get the ringtone, and Boost receives no compensation for it, making it unnecessary for you to buy anything of that nature from Boost.

Ring tone lock


Hi,

The problem here is the firmware/software running on your phone. It is restricting the use of files you personally downloaded as ringtones. The solution to this is to flash your phone with unbranded generic firmware.

LG shine: using my mp3s as ringtones


Make sure the file is mp3 format, 600 kb or smaller, and 30 seconds or less. You can make your own ringtones at the following sites:

www.cellsea.com
www.makeownringtone.com
www.ventones.com
www.myxertone.com

Once you have your ringtones ready, there are many different steps you can follow depending on what you have available on your phone.

1. If you have internet/text messaging: sites like cellsea and myxertone will provide you with instructions.

2. If you have a usb cable: connect your phone making sure it's in Mass Storage Mode. You can do this by going to settings, connection, usb connection mode, mass storage. Open the folder for your phone on your computer. It should be one of the choices of storage when you go to My Computer. Place your ringtones into the Sounds folder. And voila! It should be in the ringtone menu in your phone.

3. If you have a MicroSD memory card: Create a folder on the memory card. Name it anything other than Music (the phone will automatically create a Music folder which can not be used as ringtones). Once you insert your card into your phone, the tunes should come up when you open your ringtone menu!

Hope this helps! Good luck! :)

Can't set mp3 audio files as ringtone


Take it to a store, they can do it for you for around 20$. Search on google for K700i unlock, you will find a few places that could help. The phone needs a cable in order to be unlocked from what i understand.
