Re: 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.

Unable to load a mp3 ringtone on my Omnia

You should have a USB cable that comes with the phone n the driver for your files transfer from PC to Phone [I hope you got that CD too]. Now first of all install that driver from the CD...when it asks connect your phone to the computer with the USB cable. Open up the File Manager,My Music or you can create a new folder n name it Ringtones n start is very easy once u start doing it. Another method do that via Bluetooth option...take ringtones or songs from somebody's phone. Let me know if there's any prob.

I have a Samsung Rant, received ringtones via bluetooth

I've never received ringtones via bluetooth, but I do know Samsung made it ridiculously hard to customize your ringtones on the Rant. The only way I know of to do it, other than going online on the phone and downloading ringtones there, is to use a site like Myxer to send the songs you want directly to your phone.

Bluetooth down loads to ringtones

hello, wel if you already recieved it remember this cellphone has some 'conditions' in order for a ringtone to be accepted. it only takes mp3 and they MUST have the following chars:

8kHz (frecuency)
64Kbps (binary index)
MP3 (file format)
1 mono (channel)

then you gotta save it under the Audio section (not music) and just set it as a ringtone. It must appear on your ringtone list once it has passed the conditions. If you saved it on your MiniSD card then you need to either copy it to the phone Or enable the option thru a service application. Hope this helps.

You can not play mp3's on this phone ---- Audio Playback: The Motorola C261 does not come with an MP3 player. This phone comes with built in polyphonic ringtones, which means you can download simple MIDI files from the Internet and upload them through your phone, or simply download them via GRPS (if GRPS is built in). We do not recommend purchasing polyphonic ringtones from pay-per-use services such as television commercials, because the C261 is capable of receiving them as MIDI files which are common on the Internet.
