I have an e71X that has can't access the default ringtones

I have an e71X that can't access the default ringtones (factory installed .aac files). I can locate the files on the phone through file manager but when I attempt to change a ringtone under profiles a small pop-up window opens an that says loading but it never finds the files.
I have done a reboot and reformat of the phone as well as restored the phone to several earlier backup point using PC Suite but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Mukeshp,

    I can access the default ringtones with file manager, I can even click on them and play them, and as the ringtone is playing I can assign it to a profile. But it only assigns it as the ringtone for an incoming call. This leaves me with the problem of assigning other alets, i.e. message, email, meetings, alarms, etc. And even once it's assigned when I go back into profiles, I still can't find any default tones. It eventually stops searching and provides two options set the ringtone to none or go to mediamall to buy ringtones...

    Thanks mukeshp,
    I could access them through the file manager which was why it was confusing me. So after posting here, calling AT&T and Nokia, with no luck, I decided to pop out the memory card and restart the phone. Bingo! It located the files through the profiles menu in an instant.

    So then it turns out the problem was either the number of music files (5000 songs) I had on the phone or a card error on the 16G microSD card. A reformat solved it for good, but I'll have to keep an eye on it when I start to reload songs...

    Thanks again.

    1. Disconnect all devices (headset, charger, USB cable)
    2. Close all open applications
    3. Press power button (briefly), scroll and select ?Offline?, then scroll and select ?Remove Memory?, take out card, select ?OK?
    4. Go to the Idle Screen and type in the one of the following codes:
    a. Soft Reset: *#7780#, then enter 12345 for the password, OK, (restores factory settings, no data is lost)
    b. Hard Reset: *#7370#, then enter 12345 for the password, OK (WARNING! This erases EVERYTHING: installed applications, contacts, messages, images, videos, etc.)

Easy way to convert AAC to mp3


Before I say how, let me ask "Why?" There's only one good reason I can think of: You just got a ipod. That's the digital music player I know of that supports .mp3s but not .aac files. And you favorite song is .aac files<br /> Before we convert AAC to MP3, Let's know more about AAC format<br /> <b>Advanced Audio Coding</b> (<b>AAC</b>) is a standardized, lossy compression and encoding scheme for digital audio. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves better sound quality than MP3 at similar bit rates. AAC is the default or standard audio format for: Apple's iPhone, iPod, iPad, Nintendo DSi, iTunes, DivX Plus Web Player, Sony's PlayStation 3 and is supported by Sony's PlayStation Portable, latest generation of Sony Walkman, phones from Sony Ericsson, the latest S40 and S60 models from Nokia, Android based phones, Nintendo's Wii (with the Photo Channel 1.1 update installed for Wii consoles purchased before late 2007), the Nintendo DSi and the MPEG-4 video standard.<br /> If you don't have iTunes, and don't want to install it for this one-time job,<br /> The following steps is telling you how to convert aac to mp3 by <a href="http://www.musicconverter.org/">music converter</a> software<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Step 1:</b> Free download <a href="http://www.musicconverter.org/aac-to-mp3.html">AAC to MP3 Converter</a>, install and run this software.Then you come into the main menu<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Step 2:</b> Clicking "<b>Add</b>" button or directly drag-drop protected AAC files. Alternatively, you can click "File -&gt; Add Media Files..." to add AAC files.<br /> Note: this software support batch AAC to MP3 conversion, so that you do not need add you aac files one by one if you want to convert many AAC format files. I really appreciate this convenient function.<br /> <b>Step 3:</b> click the "<b>Setting</b>" button, to select the output format. choose MP3 format (*.mp3), also you can custom the music. if you do not want to convert into MP3 files ,you can select from this menu<br /> <b>Step 4:</b> after you finished all of this settings. Click the "<b>Start</b>" button to start converting AAC to MP3.<br /> When the conversion finished, you can enjoy your former AAC files in MP3 format<br /> <b> </b><br /> Tips: after used this software for times, I find out that: this convert software support convert many audio format .such as, WMA to MP3, M4P to WMA, M4P to M4A.....and so on. Therefore chose this software to convert audio format is a suitable choice<br /> More topic:<br /> <a href="http://www.musicconverter.org/guide/convert-audio-to-mp3.html">How to Convert Audio to MP3</a><br /> <a href="http://www.musicconverter.org/guide/convert-youtube-to-mp3.html">How to Convert YouTube to MP3</a><br />

How to make iPhone ringtone on Windows 7, Vista or XP


This guide will show you how to make iPhone ringtones using songs on your iTunes music library right from your Windows PC without installing any application (except for iTunes, of course) and without registering to any website or any premium text services. That means, everything is FREE!

Everything is done directly on your computer, you can do this even without internet connection.

This is for all iPhones (iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or older) and for all iOS versions.

Here's what you need:
  • Computer running on Windows 7, Vista or XP with iTunes installed
  • Song(s) on your iTunes music library
Note: You don't need your iPhone yet until you're done making your ringtone and are ready to sync.

If you don't see the Ringtones list on your sidebar, don't worry. It will show up after you're successful in creating your first one.

Procedures:
  1. Open iTunes (from your PC) and select any song from your music library.kid_ant.png
  2. Right-click on your chosen song then click on Get Info.kid_ant.png
  3. Click on the Options tab, at the top of info window.kid_ant.png
  4. Look for Start Time and Stop Time, and copy whatever is written in the Stop Time box (which is the full length of the song) to avoid messing up the original copy, coz you're gonna need to put it back later.kid_ant.pngOn the video, the original length of my song is 5:48.055, but ringtones for iPhones could not comprise the full length of the song, it must only be around 1 to 30 seconds (though I'm not sure if 30+ sec will still work).kid_ant.png
  5. Shorten the song to acceptable limit (1 to 30 sec.).kid_ant.pngOn the video I used the first 9 seconds, by changing only the Stop Time from 5:48.055 to 0:09.000.kid_ant.pngYou may also choose the middle part of any song, say you can set the Start Time at 1:23.456 (or any time of your choice) and the Stop Time at 1:54.321 (or any time of your choice).kid_ant.png
  6. Click on OK to apply the changes.kid_ant.pngkid_ant.png
  7. Select the same song, click on Advanced from the Menu bar at the top of iTunes Window, then click on Create AAC version.kid_ant.pngNotice that the AAC version has shorter time than the original one.kid_ant.png
  8. Modify the original copy back to its full length (noted on step 4), then click on OK.kid_ant.png
  9. Right-click on the AAC version, then click on Show in Windows Explorer. A folder will open showing your two songs in file form, the original copy having the .mp3 file extension, and AAC version with .m4a.kid_ant.pngIf you cannot see the file extensions, Go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View (tab)> and from there, remove the check beside the option saying Hide extensions for known file types. Click on OK to apply the changes. (Watch the video for clearer instruction.)kid_ant.png
  10. Change the .m4a file extension to .m4r.kid_ant.pngYou may also change the name, but that's up to you. The important thing is to change the file extension.kid_ant.png
  11. Then Windows will ask:kid_ant.png87d54cb.jpgkid_ant.pngJust click on Yes.kid_ant.png
  12. Double-click on the modified file to add it to your ringtones list, and you're done!
The only thing you need to do now is to sync ringtones so you can use them on your iPhone.


WARNING-BEFORE YOU SYNC
Syncing ringtones will affect the music library on the iPhone, so before you click the sync button, be sure to transfer all your purchased songs first (from iPhone to PC) so no song will be deleted. Or better yet, do this only when you're working on the computer where: you save all your songs, or; you regularly sync your iPhone.

Notes:
This guide is intended only for iPhone users, because iPhones do not accept file types other than .m4r as ringtones.

This guide is intended only for Windows users. The guide for Mac users is written separately, with its own video.

How can i access my ringtones to be able to delete ones I don't want ?


Cell phones have default ringtones installed to them by the manufacturers, there's no way of deleting them even if you reset the factory settings but you can delete those that you have personally dowloaded, saved or added on your tones.
I can give you the steps how but you have to let me know what cellphone unit/handset you are using.

Hi , i got a Nokia E71x , and i can not change my clock and date also , when i try to open it , i got "system error" , i bought the phone in USA , and i live in europe , what can i do ,pls help...


Do a master reset:
CAUTION: A "master reset" changes the phone settings back to default. This process will erase all contacts, downloaded settings, and downloaded applications (ringtones, wallpapers, graphics, etc). This process cannot be undone. So please backup all data in phone memory to memory card first.
Enter *#7370# from standby screen, and the standard phone code for nokia phone is 12345

How to Create MP3 Ringtones for iPhones with only iTunes and Previously...


  1. Start iTunes and find the song you want to convert. (It must be an MP3.)
  2. Right-click the song and choose Get Info.
  3. Click the Options tab.
  4. Check the Start Time and Stop Time boxes, then enter times for each (no more than 30 seconds apart, the maximum length for a ringtone). I used 0:00 and 0:30, respectively, as "Spit It Out" has a perfect ascending lead-in.
  5. Click OK, then right-click the song again and choose Create AAC Version. You should immediately see a new 30-second version of the song.
  6. Drag that version out of iTunes and into the folder of your choice.
  7. Delete the 30-second version from iTunes and undo the Start Time/Stop Time changes to the original.
  8. Open the folder containing the 30-second AAC file you dragged out of iTunes, then change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r. Double-click it and it immediately gets added to iTunes' ringtone library.
  9. Finally, sync your iPhone. When it's done, you can head into the settings and select your new ringtone.
