Re: setting ringtone

Here are instructions for setting the ringtone on a Palm Treo 750 running Windows Mobil 6.0 Professional

To change the ringtone do the following:

1.Go to Start and select Settings

2.Select "Sounds and Notifications"

3.Go to the "Notifications" tab listed along the bottom

4.In the Event field either press the middle button or use your stylus to see the drop down menu.

5.From the menu choose whichever option you want to set the ringtone for. i.e. Phone:Known Caller or Phone: Unknown Caller

6. Once you have made your choice go to Ring Type. Here you want to access the drop down menu so you can chose how long the ringtone will sound.

7. Once you have made your choice go to Ring Tone. Access the drop down menu again to cycle through the different types of ringtones. If you have music on your phone you can also choose this as your ringtone instead of having to purchase them but first some steps have to be taken in order for the music to be seen in the drop down menu. I will put that at the bottom of this solution just in case it's needed.

You can use this method to set ringtones for other things such as incoming email, messages and reminders. With Messages Emails, and reminders you can also select music that is already on your phone but I have not been able to do the same with smaller things like "Connection Disconnected".

Here are instructions for making music on your phone into a ringtone.

You may want to have an expansion card for this but it can be done without one. If you are not using an expansion card and would like to make all of the songs on your unit into a ringtone you may have to delete the music files after adding them to your ringtones.
In order to make your music available for choice in ringtone all songs must be in the "My Music" Folder prior to beginning.

Begin by following steps 1. and 2. from above then:

3.Select the "Manage" tab

4.Select Menu then select Add

5. For this part I find using the stylus is simplest. On the top left of the screen push the down arrow found under the words "Select a Sound"

6.From this drop down menu select "My Device" then click on the "Music" Folder

7.Once there Highlight the song you would like to be a ringtone then click "Select"

All done Now the music on you phone is a ringtone. Ringtones made this way can be deleted anytime simply by going into the "Manage" tab again, highlighting the song you wish to delete, Selecting "Menu", Then selecting "Delete"

Can i put a song from my SD card as an ringtone on my pantech duo?

You can but the file needs to be labeled My Ringtones. If you have tones in the ringtone folder and its still not working check the size and format of the tones, windows mobile 6 was only designed to accept tones under 320k and in .mp3 or .wav formats.

Thr ringing tones

Hi. Before you could change your ringtone make sure you have other tunes/music files on your phone. It should be stored on your phone memory. Go to settings >> Incoming call then click the Ringtone, select the location of the tune you want to set as your ringtone. Then when you have accessed your music folder select the tune and then save your settings :) Hope this helps.
