So after working on this all night long, I've got it figured out!

Ok so first things first, I don't know about your phone but mine (at least with cricket) won't allow attachments on sms messages, only mms messages.

So you will need to make sure you can accept picture messages, with cricket you are supposed to be able to for free however, that wasn't the case for me, I had to sign up for a month but it's only $3 and I intend to get everything I want in the next week.

So once you know you can recieve picture messages (mms) you can then email yourself ringtones.. ok well it's not quite that simple...

First you can only receive a .mid file, so mp3's are out, at least if you send it to yourself with that format. You also can only accept files that are 113kb or less, so if it's bigger you will have to shrink it or shorten it. To shrink or shorten your MP3 PRIOR to changing the format, download switch at Once you've downloaded it open or drag and drop the mp3 in the empty space. On the bottom left click on encoder options you want to change the constant bit rate to something that will help bring the file size down.. if it's just a tad too big like 125kb then select 112kb, if it's 400kb then select 48 or 56, just above that you can select where you would like it to be when you finish converting it, I like the desktop so I don't have to search for it. Then click on convert, you then find your new mp3 on your desktop (or where ever you chose) and check the properties to be sure it is 113kb or less, if not go back and adjust the bit rate again, or you can shorten your clip by downloading wavepad sound editor both programs are free.

Once your file is the right size, it's time to change the format.

To change the format without a converter you must open your folder options and scroll down and deselect *hide known file extensions. This way it will show the name.ext, you simply click on it to rename it and change it to name.mid Once this is done you can email it to your phone... my mms email is I just add the audio as a file attachment.

Once your phone receives the message it should begin playing when you open the message, if the audio doesn't play then it was in the wrong format, try again, otherwise press the options button, go down and select save as sound, then put in the name you want (if you want it changed) and click ok.

Now you can find it under the media/ melody gallery/ downloads.

For some fun and cool free ring tones you can download to your comp then fix them so you can send them to your phone, check out

    I was about to give up, thinking no solution was to be found. Alas, it's a shame you are a Christian, but I still love you.

Can't use mp3's as my ringtone

Send the MP3's to yourself in a message. The MP3 should be 30 seconds or less. One you receive the MP3 that you have sent to yourself, look under OPTIONS, you should see something that will let you save it as a ringtone.

Making your own ringtones, not using verizon

Any sound, including recorded sounds, that are sent offers the option to save as ring tone upon opening the file. You do not have to send as a picture file.

Highlight the sound under your sounds file, select "send", and send it to your own number. When you receive it, open it and select options. One option (scroll down) is to save as a ringtone.

I do this all the time, so it absolutely works.

most likely you need to check with your carrier due to when your friend sends you a ringtone it will go through the phone as a multimedia message (MMS) so for those to work you need 2 things first 1 text messages must work 2 must be able to access net if able to do both of those things then you need to contact service provider to make sure that your MMS is on.
