Can you tell me how to set mp3 songs as my ringtone

You can download a free program called bitpim from You can make your own tones, and transfer pics, videos, addressbook and more. There are some good youtube videos that will show step by step how to make the ringtones.
If you do not have a manual for your phone and you would like one, you can download it here:

You can download ringtones from the at&t store from the phone. Then once it is downloaded, you can set as ringtone or playback. The info is on page 76 of the manual. Too much info to paste here. If you want more info, let me know.

I downloaded a ringtone for my LG Incite but I can't install it. Its not coming up on the lists of ringtones... pls help... Also if I get it through bluetooh its the same problem

LG CT810 has a size limitation of 300K for ringtone... you must have mp3 file that over the limited size, so it won't show up.

Reduce the size by lower the mp3 sound quanlity and then you are good to go. Simply save it in "My Documents" folder and it will show.

I am trying to figure out how to set a .amr tone as my ring/ message tone on a Cingular Phone?

I think I read on a review that you can't set your own recordings as ringtones on the LG Shine. There might be a way around it but I know that you can't directly do it. Sorry. You will need to convert the tone to mp3 format you are correct. The easiest way to do this is to download a software program that converts audio files, (there should be a ton for free on Once you have converted the file to the correct format you can transfer it back to the Shine. The only other issue you might run into is the length. LGs are restrictive in that the tone can only be a certain size, even in the correct format, to be applied as a ringtone. But, there are also software programs you can get to edit the size of the audio tone.

How do i put ringtones on my lg shine?

SOLUTION!!! (for those with a memory card but no usb cable!)

I’ve been having the same problem in trying to find a way to set my music as ringtones. Here’s what you can do:

-Make sure the file is appropriate.. 30 seconds or less, mp3 format
-When you add your music to the memory card, it shows up as a song but not as a ringtone right?

The solution is to create a different folder rather than using the “Music” folder the phone automatically creates for you. Transfer your music to this new folder you’ve created. The ringtones should show up as long as it fits the requirements! :] Hope this helps!
