You can only get ringtones from the t-mobile catalog. You can put mp3 on your slide but not as ringtones.

    surenony- Do you have a SD card in your phone? To move files over it has to be onto a sd card.

I have this same problem..... my t-mobile advisers told me that i needed a sd card so i got 1 and it still didn't work but all i know to do is us ur usb cable, plug it up to your computer go to your music saved on your computer then click on sync and it will sync them to your phone and then you can go to ur music player after wards and listen to your songs but sadly you can not set them as your ring-tone!! sucks... i know!

Welll i gotta bluetooth earpiece i jusz wanna knoe if i can hook it up or not cuz this phone iz stupid im finna sell it fa $5 on ebay.. sumbody uh buy it

Posted on Jun 22, 2008

The reason T-Mobile locked bluetooth and the sidekick ringtones is not because of hackers. Why do you think they didn't put a recording app on the phone? They made it this way because if you are not able to purchase ringtones from other sites, make them yourself, send them via bluetooth, or record them then YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY THEM FROM t-mobile. It is because T-Mobile is a greedy company and that's how it is, I have used them since the SK1, you can't a ringtone on your sidekick except from the catalog if you have T-Mobile. If you are on a different network outside of the US with the sidekick that is a different story.

I had just asked customer service, and they actually put a lock on the sidekicks and will begin to lock new phones to where you can only use bluetooth for the earpiece and calls.
They had problems with hackers and so they got rid of the capabilities and locked bluetooth.

Internet on unlocked sidekick id

you cant. tmobile offers a specific web service to sidekicks that is different than others. at&t along with other carriers do not use this service, therefore you CANNOT use the web browser or instant messanger without a sidekick plan thru tmobile.

why would you want to use any other service anyway? tmobile is cheaper and offer better customer service.

Download ringtones

you dont need to buy a card you just need to go to your tmobile store, and put money into your account... for example if you want to get a ring tone ($2.75) then deposit $2.75 and you could buy it with no problem :)
