Set a ringtone for a text message SYNC SGH-A707

I got the SYNC for christmas of 2006 and still can't set a purchased ringtone for a text message. the phone gives you the choice:
1. Use Effect Tone
2. Use My Effect Tone
the effect tones are the ones preloaded by the manufacturer
my effect tones are supposed to be the ringtones you put on yourself. i have over 10 ringtones and none of them show up as a choice.
what am i doing wrong?
or do i have a defective phone?

This website will change files to mmf format. but the sound sucks majorlyyyy

www.media-convert.com

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

the second one will let you cut up the song. i suggest you cut it first and then convert it. it works for me and i can use it for txt and alarm but like i said the sound is horrible.

They need to be set to mmf tones, unfortunately, when you set a realtone to mmf, it changes it to polyphonic...which sucks. i have yet to find a way around this, but i'm working on it.

Posted on May 20, 2008

Text alerts, voicemails alerts, and alarm alerts all use a different file format than regular ringtones for the phone. notice that the preloaded tones are .mmf. thats what it has to be. iv never bothered buying tones cause its always a rip off anywhere. but thats the answer to your "ringtone wont work for alarm" problem

Set a ringtone for a text message SYNC SGH-A707


"My Effect Tones" can only be MMF files. Ringtones can be WAV, MMF, MP3, etc... as long as the file is under 300kb I think. You need to convert your ring tones to MMF to use them as "Text Tones"

Changing Text Message Tone


it's because the text alerts and alarms etc. all require a different file format than what the presets are...notice the preset tones already on the phone are ".mmf?" well most downloaded/bluetoothed/purchased ringtones are mp3s, not mmfs. i have the same phone..and i am fed up with this stupid problem. i don't know how to convert the file type..sooo i guess we're stuck at stupid.

ATTENTION ANY SYNC OFFICIAL READING THIS:
i hate you.
