    Yeah, me too...ringtone adjusted to max on all adjustments I can find and still can't hear it unless the room is perfectly silent and it's within a half meter from me. You would think a device this expensive WOULD WORK!

I just got the same blackberry, and have been fooling around with it to try and get it to ring.

Here's what you do:
1. Go to "Applications" and select "Media"
2. Select "Ring Tones"
3. Select "View"
4. Select "Preloaded Ring Tones"
5. Select "View". You will get a list of ring tones, organized alphabetically by 3 prefixes: "Alarm", "Notifier" and "Ringer".
6. Scroll down to the ones that start with "Ringer".
7. Select one. Select "Play". Hit the "Exit" button if you want to stop it, or let it finish and then hit "Exit".
8. Do this until you find one you like.
9. At the same menu that has "Play", scroll down to "Set as Ring Tone"
10. Click to select. Click again to confirm.
11. Exit-exit-exit until you're back at your main screen.
12. Call yourself from another phone to check it out. You'll find that the device will vibrate first for a bit, then ring with your new tone.

Enjoy! Hope this works for you - it did for me.

You cannot save a ringtone, picture, or music to a SIM card. Those files get saved to the "hard drive" of the phone. In order to get music into your phone to use as a ringtone, you must either

1. Download through one of those pay for services like Jamster or through t-zones or the like.

2. Use a data connection plan to download from the "mobile net". Sites are free that let you upload your music to an address that you can go to on your mobile web and download to your phone. The phone usually knows where to download the ringtone to on its own. T-mobile's t-zones costs $5.99 a month for the mobile web.

3. Use a USB connector and the media managing software for the phone to transfer the file to your phone. The Motorola RZR uses a software called Motorola Phone Tools to do this. The Blackberry also has its own Blackberry User Tools Software. Usually, the software shows you the "folders" on the phone and one will be called "tones". You put it there and it comes up in your list of ringtones.

Blue tooth software revisions keep occuring. The previous generation did not permit the transfer of MP3.... are your ring tone MP3's?

Also, make sure the the ring tone is not "copy protected"....

Blackberry Curve 8310 loading ringtones


Two ways:

1. Use the included Blackbery Desktop software and run "Media Manager". This will let you transfer any song on your computer over to the BB.

2. You can mount the BB as a drive in Windows and just copy the music file over directly. (This may only work if you have a media card installed -- might not work with built-in memory only.)

After copying the music over use the included Media application to try to play it. Once it plays in Media Manager you can be sure it will play as a ring tone.

Use the "Profiles" application and select "Advanced." Scroll to the "Tune" setting and select it. Scroll to the top of the list and select "Browse..." From there you can select the song and it will be a ringtone.

You can also set a ringtone individually for a contact in the address book. Edit the person's contact info and choose a custom ring tone at the bottom of the Edit screen.
