Re: everything dealing with ringtones from the pc
Well the only way you will get WMP to see the phone is if you have a Tran-flash card in it to Load MP3. You can though use a program called BitPim to put MP3 On the phones memory... You would put it in the audio directory.. and then play it with Sprints MP3 Player.

Once you have the application downloaded to your computer, you have to sync it to your phone.
Plug your phone into itunes, when it shows up on the left hand side underneath devices. select the iphone there. This will bring you to your summary tab.
In the middle near the top you will see different tabs including Summary, info, ringtones, music, etc...
Go to your applications tab. If all of your applications do not show up in that list, go to file in the upper left hand corner and click "transfer purchases from iphone".
If all of your applications appear in that tab. Put a check mark next to sync applications and select all applications.
Click apply in the lower left hand corner and this will sync the application to your iphone. Access the application to download the ringtones.
This guide will show you how to make iPhone ringtones using songs on your iTunes music library right from your Windows PC without installing any application (except for iTunes, of course) and without registering to any website or any premium text services. That means, everything is FREE!
Everything is done directly on your computer, you can do this even without internet connection.
This is for all iPhones (iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or older) and for all iOS versions.
Here's what you need:
Computer running on Windows 7, Vista or XP with iTunes installed
Song(s) on your iTunes music library
Note: You don't need your iPhone yet until you're done making your ringtone and are ready to sync.
If you don't see the Ringtones list on your sidebar, don't worry. It will show up after you're successful in creating your first one.
Open iTunes (from your PC) and select any song from your music library.
Right-click on your chosen song then click on Get Info.
Click on the Options tab, at the top of info window.
Look for Start Time and Stop Time, and copy whatever is written in the Stop Time box (which is the full length of the song) to avoid messing up the original copy, coz you're gonna need to put it back later.On the video, the original length of my song is 5:48.055, but ringtones for iPhones could not comprise the full length of the song, it must only be around 1 to 30 seconds (though I'm not sure if 30+ sec will still work).
Shorten the song to acceptable limit (1 to 30 sec.).On the video I used the first 9 seconds, by changing only the Stop Time from 5:48.055 to 0:09.000.You may also choose the middle part of any song, say you can set the Start Time at 1:23.456 (or any time of your choice) and the Stop Time at 1:54.321 (or any time of your choice).
Click on OK to apply the changes.
Select the same song, click on Advanced from the Menu bar at the top of iTunes Window, then click on Create AAC version.Notice that the AAC version has shorter time than the original one.
Modify the original copy back to its full length (noted on step 4), then click on OK.
Right-click on the AAC version, then click on Show in Windows Explorer. A folder will open showing your two songs in file form, the original copy having the .mp3 file extension, and AAC version with .m4a.If you cannot see the file extensions, Go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View (tab)> and from there, remove the check beside the option saying Hide extensions for known file types. Click on OK to apply the changes. (Watch the video for clearer instruction.)
Change the .m4a file extension to .m4r.You may also change the name, but that's up to you. The important thing is to change the file extension.
Then Windows will ask:Just click on Yes.
Double-click on the modified file to add it to your ringtones list, and you're done!
The only thing you need to do now is to sync ringtones so you can use them on your iPhone.
WARNING-BEFORE YOU SYNC Syncing ringtones will affect the music library on the iPhone, so before you click the sync button, be sure to transfer all your purchased songs first (from iPhone to PC) so no song will be deleted. Or better yet, do this only when you're working on the computer where: you save all your songs, or; you regularly sync your iPhone.
Notes: This guide is intended only for iPhone users, because iPhones do not accept file types other than .m4r as ringtones.
This guide is intended only for Windows users. The guide for Mac users is written separately, with its own video.
for some reason this phone likes to in sync windows media player, i had the same problem. also the audio folder is for ringtones, there should be a dedicated music folder. if you put your phone in music sync mode and plug it into your 'puter wmp should start right up.
use the palm quick install and browse through picture files and add
them. You will need to first of all put the hot sync cable on your
phone then hit the button on the cable connector, give it some time, if
you still cant do it, read below
if it says it cant connect, go to hot sync on the home and then
below the hot sync button ON THE SCREEN, Where you see switch the IR to
a PC/handheld click it and go to the second option. If that still
doesent work, on your PC go to all programs then look for palm, go to
that file and click hot sync now the hotsync is turned on the computer
then after that do all the steps in the first paragraph.

I had the same problem. I hooked my phone back up to iTunes and synced my phone. Ringtone disappeared from phone, but remained in my computer's iTunes. Then I added it back to my phone through iTunes by syncing ringtones specifically. Here is step by step:
1. Plug in iPhone
2. Sync Phone
3. Click on iPhone, open Ringtones tab
4. Check "Sync ringtones" box and Select your Ringtone
5. Click Sync
This worked for my phone. Hope it helps. I used my phone to download ringtone.
