How can I set an mp3 file as a ringtone via the SD disc?

I'd like to use my own mp3 file as a ringtone and can't figure out how to transfer it using the SD memory card...

I've copied several formats mp3, amr rmf and mmf files onto the memory card under the "My Sounds" folder. But can't figure how to set any of these as a ringtone.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I want to download an app to download songs and ringtones

Method 1:
Transfer the song(s) you want to set as ringtones onto the microSD card either by connecting to pc via USB or using an SD adapter. Next, Tap on the Music Player, open the music list, press the menu button and select PLAY ALL, this will scan your SD card for music/audio files. Once all your songs have been added to the list, select the song you want to set as ringtone and click MENU key, choose SET AS RINGTONE and that will take you to the RIngtone Trimmer, make the ringtone 30 seconds or less, select Trim and you're done.

Method 2:

Root your HTC Hero, create a directory in your C: drive and name it HeroRIngtones, HTC, or whatever and put there all the ringtones you want to be added (30 seconds or less), then open Command Prompt; make sure your device is connected and already visible. Run the following command "adb push directoryname/myringtone.mp3 /system/media/audio/ringtones" and press enter. Do same procedure for all the audio files you want to set as ringtones.

Method 2 is not available for non-root users.

Can't transfer ringtones from a SD card to my phone, LG's VX8300

Before putting it ringtone on the sd shorten to max 35 seconds and change the file name ending from mp3 or mp4 or any others to .mpr if it already isnt that.

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 can't save ringtones via email attachment to my i425

Boost Mobile does not accept ringtones from 3rd parties, whether its sent via email or mp3 attachment. U might want to try sending it through the SMS. Maybe u can save it that way. Only way I've been able to get ringtones is thru the Boost site only. No "free ringtone" websites are able to send ringtones thru a message, cuz Boost blocks this. And Ive tried them all. Until they provide us with phones with SD cards, were outta luck, sorry.

How can I use music as a ringtone on my Lg C920?

look under your Music Player for the ringtone, instead of looking under audio and ringtones. Then open it like you want to listen to it. choose "Set as" then Ringtone ID. this should work as long as the file is formatted as an MP3

Lg scoop

have the newest version of bitpim
make sure you have the drivers for the USB cable you are using.
open bitpim
let it find the phone(it will come up as other CDMA phone)
click FILESYSTEM on the left at the bottom
expand the folder
click dload
right click on lg_mysound.dat and save it to your desktop
after you save it right click lg_mysound.dat in bitpim and delete it
now click brew
click media
click lk
click ms

now drop the songs you want to use as ringers in this file. they will automaticlly load into your phone. it isnt the fastest process but it works. 

after they are done loading onto the phone, unhook USB cable from computer, power the phone off and then back on.

the items you just transferred with now be in the my audio file where they need to be to assign them for individual ringers.


everytime you wnat to add new ringers to the phone you have to complete all the steps above, even the deleting that one certain file. not a very hard process and has worked well for me. 

good luck and happy mp3 loading songs into the phone as ringers.
