Transfer my music to my Motorola Q as a ringtone via USB cable.
I have a song I want to use as my primary ringtone. I have a cable that came with the phone so I can Sync. I do not have a mini SD card yet. I am unable to Sync and I can not figure out how to get the song over to my phone as a ringtone from my computer. I do not have texting. Any ideas?

You can use the ringtones stored in Settings > Sounds > Ringtones. Otherwise, you can purchase custom ringtones from the iTunes Store application. You can also try using 3rd party applications that are named ringtone makers and try to use music in your iPod application. You cannot set songs in iPod as ringtones directly.
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.
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.

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 transfering...it is very easy once u start doing it.
Another method is...you do that via Bluetooth option...take ringtones or songs from somebody's phone.
Let me know if there's any prob.
hey. I hope I can be some of help, as I used to have the same phone as you and I always added music from my computer to use as ringtones. For starters, make sure the song you want to use is 192 kps or lower, and is in the mp3 format. I usually downloaded my songs via limewire; however, as long as you have the song(s) you want in a separate folder(like your music folder) in your computer documents - it makes for easy transfer from your computer to your cell. Now onto the transferring....
What you want to do is have the usb cable that came with the phone plugged into a usb port on your computer, then plugged into your phone. A little icon will appear in the lower right corner of your computer screen displaying a message - new hardware found(usb storage) ignore that
go to your music folder and right click on the song and select - send to (whatever drive your usb cable is plugged into - for example - :J drive
you should see a grey box appear up in the left corner of your screen displaying the copy animation.
Once your finished with the transferring part, you are going to want to unplug the usb cable from your phone and computer, then look up your sounds file in your phone to make sure it's there and plays.
After the first transfer, it's a piece of cake from there! =)
