    Through my micro SD card, I put it on my computer, converted it into mp3, then put the card back into my phone. It was added as a song... I then tried e-mailing the amw. to my e-mail (off of my phone). when I tried to send it back, however, It said it could not recieve the attachement. However, I remember reading somewhere that that was an ability of this phone (before I got it). Additionally, the at&t man at the store said this could not be done. I find this hard to believe.

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!

Gahhh.. I seriously spent hours trying to figure out how to get my ringtone to work, and I FINALLY found the solution.

Simply import your ringtone file to http://makeownringtone.com/ and redownload the ringtone and then copy and paste the file onto your microsd card.

Works like a charm :). I hope this helps.

Using the site MySugarCat provided (http://makeownringtone.com) I made an mp3 ringtone at about 20 seconds and 200KBs. bitrate at 80, downloaded to my computer, copied to a microSD card through a couple adaptors (short and sweet, got it on my microSD card) in a folder called "other", just popped it in the phone, and the ringtone shows up under the ringtones menu now.

If that doesnt work, try going to my stuff, find the folder you put it in (named something besides audio, pictures, or videos), the RT should be there, copy it, and paste it to the phone memory, the audio and ringtones folder should popup automatically.

step 1: http://makeownringtone.com/, make sure the file is under 300KB
step 2: download
step 3: transfer to microsd card, in a folder marked other (or something random)
step 4: insert card into phone
step 5: if it doesnt show up under audio and ringtones now, goto 6, otherwise 7
step 6: main menu > my stuff > memory card > random folder (you names this earlier) > locate rt.mp3 > options > copy > handset memory > audio & ringtones folder > paste
step 7: set as rintone.

Mine is a cu720, ATT locked LG shine. Phone manufacturers being phone manufacturers I'd assume the OS is about the same for other versions, so these steps should work.

I have had my LG Shine for about a month. I say this because it might be important to note that its hardware version is CU720 Rev1.1, Firmware Version KLRZ-4.0.90201C and Software Version CU720-MSM4090201C-V10g-NOV-22-2007-ATT-US. Having said all that, you might qualify what I have found DOES work. I have a 2GB micro SD memory card from SanDisk (approx. $30). I am also using a USB cable (approx. $20) (off eBay for the LG Chocolate, it seems any USB cable with the right connector for the phone will work...i.e. 4-pin, correct form factor, etc.). So--I have not verified the 300Kb limit exactly, but I can presume it's probably correct. Everything I've transfered to the phone over 300k has not worked ("file too large" error message) and everything under has. I pick a song I like in MP3 format (I'm using iTunes--doesn't matter though. ATT advertises that AAC and other formats will work, but I haven't tried them). I crop the song using any software (e.g. Creative Wavestudio...came with my PC sound card, although I'm sure plenty of other shareware software is available). Now, I've found that a 24 second clip with a stereo OR mono signal sampled at 96kbps will produce a file size under 300kb. If you leave the bit rate at 128kbps the file size will be above 300kb, so I accepted the loss in quality and haven't been able to tell any difference with the LG speaker against any of the other MP3 songs I've played through the phone's speaker (possibly you will notice a difference with a good headset/headphones, etc. ...haven't gotten there yet). Once I crop the MP3 file (under 300kb gives me around 24 seconds, tops), I just save it as an MP3 file at 96kbps, stereo, 44.1k sample rate, etc.) Then I plug the USB cable into the PC, then into the phone, and the Shine says USB connection as mass storage device. The PC will prompt to open a writeable window or you can open "my computer" and find the removable drive and double click it to open it. At this point I copy the file, open the window for the phone and then double click the "Audios" folder in the memory card and paste the file. (You should be able to drag-and-drop the file, but I've seen some older posts indicating this might not work). Once this is done you can cancel the USB connection using the phone and then the file will show up as an mp3 file that you can assign as a default ringtone or assign to individual contacts. So, there it is. I will say that this procedure (except for the USB connection mode as "mass storage") was all in my users manual. I've seen instructions suggesting "music sync" mode or "data service" mode (all under settings/connection), but my LG Shine seems to default to "mass storage" and it has been working for me. Also note, that the full length songs I upload, I put in the "Music" folder on the memory card and they show up and play under the music player with no problem. ---Hope all this helps, typical verbose explanation coming from an engineer. :-)

Most likely the same problem I was running into. Apparently the filesize is capped at 300kb. If the music file you are looking at is greater than that amount, it will not give you the option of setting it as a ringtone. Quite disappointing really. Good luck.

The ringtones on the shine will only play for 19 secs or so. this phone has a short ringing-duration before it swithes to voicemail. so i do all my ringtones as 30secs or less otherwise it will not set the tone. it will also play mpeg-4 files but not set them as they are far to large. My previous phone had i-tunes (mp4) and i had 100 songs on my mSD card. Much to my surprise when i put the card in the shine and opened the mp3 player, all the songs showed up(including the mp3 tones i had on it)! The only problem: well the file-name system is different between the two, so they all had names like 154hr8y7.mp4. sucks. and when i try to change file names with the phone it shuts down and restarts

    You cannot, repeat, CANNOT put ringtone

    in LG shine by physical mean. Drag n drop will not work.



    You will have to use programs.

    The one i use is called BitPim.(type it on google then dl)

    However, LG Shine seems to have problems recognizing LG

    Shine, i somehow made it work, but i dont know how i really did it.

    Ill tell u what i think works.



    First, download BitPim.

    2. plug in your phone (it must be in mass storage mode)

    3. click cancel on your phone, so it displays ur wallpaper and make sure Charging.... or Fully Charged message in visible on your phone screen (this indicates ur phone is still connected, but not in mass storage mode)

    4.Click detect phone icon on BitPim. It should say Other Com...(blah blah blah)...detected. (If it doesnt, search google to make it work. I recommand installing a driver or something.)

    5,click view, then view filesystem.

    You should see desk-like icon that says filesystem on left side pf BitPim.

    6.click the filesystem icon, the click the little + sign beside it.

    7.It should say 'retrieving...' It takes about 3-5 minute to open.

    8.expand to following options: LGAPP/media/midis/ringtone

    9.right click on the empty space wherer ur sucky ringtones are

    10.Click new file and add ur mp3 format ringtone. Ring tone has to be mp3 and less that 300.

    otherwise, it will give you the option of choosing to as your ringtone, but it will say file is too big and exit.



    Im leaving out the minor details ( i think i made it clear, then again it may be not), but that should be solved by searing at google or at youtube).



    If im missing anything, tell me, and if possibel, copy this, add your correction/edit, then post it.

    I would appreciate it if you put the name HotDogMaster at the end =D

Do you have picture messaging? If you do, just go to ventones.com, click on mobile uploader on the left side, upload your ringtone and click send to your mobile phone. It will send it the audio as a message and just go to view attachment, save it, and set as a ringtone. I have been doing this for 2 years with my LG shine. Hope this helps!

It should work. I have found that you should only go for 27 seconds or even less!!!!
If it shows up in "my stuff", audio/ringtones, highlight the ring tone, go to options/set as.....'ringtone' and it will give you a ding with a check mark.

You then have to go to ringtone ID and check that also. If it won't let you do it, the music file is too long........cut it to say, 25 sec.

Hope this helps!

  • ON3DANCE Oct 22, 2008

    It can be done using a purchased micro chip and the usb cable for this.

    Go to Best Buy and check with the older teens in the store where they sell cell phones. They might know.....my hubby is 70 years young and figured it out and it works! USE A RINGTONE THAT IS NO MORE THAN 27 SECONDS! That is the key here!

    If you keep scrolling here you will see the answer........just follow the many directions and don't give up....it can be done!!!! Best of Luck!

I honestly think the phone is a piece of ****... It's been nothing but trouble since I got it... what 2 weeks ago? I too have cut the size of the Mp3 file down to under 12 seconds; and it still doesn't give me the option of saving it as a ringtone. The worst part is even if I did pay for the ringtones... They never have the songs I want. What a bunch of BS!

I went to http://www.makeownringtone.com/ and my song, now ringtone, ended up in my itunes, ringtone section. So i:
-Right clicked the song
- Went down to where it says "Show in Playlist." When you have your cursor on that theres another    drop down menu for Music or Recently added i think.
- I clicked Music and now the ringtone is in my Itunes Music section. From there, I transfered the song via bluetooth on my Mac, to LG shine and it works. 
Hope that helps ;)

The shine will not take full songs as ringtones. Download an app call Audacity to turn your songs into 20 sec. ringtones and bluetooth (bluetooth dongle required) or data cable them to your phone.

Http://www.myxer.com/ this should help you, just make your own, get a mp3 cutter, here is a free program http://home.hccnet.nl/p.luijer/ cut the part out that you want, usually about 20-27 sec long, (for a ringtone) and myxer will send you a text message with a link in it, if you have unlimited data plan it won't cost you a thing, so once again, download the cutter program from the second link(freeware program, works like a charm) then cut out the part from the song and then go to myxer.com and make your own ringtone, easy and free, but if you don't have a data plan it will cost you for the download so be carefull

Have a look to the comment below. Your Phone needs a firmware update when available.
Most of the "baddies" of the phone are software-related.
I could not care less that LG made one of the best-looking devices on the market as long as its firmware has so many bugs (minor and major).
Anyway, if we get past these, we are left with a low capacity battery and low functionality of the USB and EDGE connectivity.
Also the multimedia part is somewhat tricky to use and doesn't comply to the standards required nowadays.
The phone will not disappoint buyers as these problems of the phone are not so easy to discover and only a full user of the device will be able to find them.
There's a big chance that the handset might have other problems that were not mentioned here, but after only 1 week of testing, this is what I could find

Apparently Rogers has put a block on the ringtones, and you can only use the ones that you buy from them for this phone :(

Posted on Jan 02, 2008

You have to somehow cut the song down to UNDER 300KB. From there, the only way I've been able to work is to literally e-mail my song file from my computer, to my phone as a text message. This is the only luck I've had, lemme know if you have any luck.

You can e-mail the song file as an attatchment in an e-mail to your cell phone's TXT messaging address, which should be this:
0000000000@mms.att.net
The zero's being your cell phone number (Including area code)

From there, simply open the text message once received on your phone (Can take up to 5 minutes) and then go to options>view attachment>select the sound file>save

Its a bit of work, but it seems to work for me.
I hope I've helped.

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 google.com). 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.

Lg Shine Flip Ringtones


-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 phoneautomatically 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

LG shine ringtone


Make sure the file is mp3 format, 600 kb or smaller, and 30 seconds or less. You can make your own ringtones at the following sites:

www.cellsea.com
www.makeownringtone.com
www.ventones.com
www.myxertone.com

Once you have your ringtones ready, there are many different steps you can follow depending on what you have available on your phone.

1. If you have internet/text messaging: sites like cellsea and myxertone will provide you with instructions.

2. If you have a usb cable: connect your phone making sure it's in Mass Storage Mode. You can do this by going to settings, connection, usb connection mode, mass storage. Open the folder for your phone on your computer. It should be one of the choices of storage when you go to My Computer. Place your ringtones into the Sounds folder. And voila! It should be in the ringtone menu in your phone.

3. If you have a MicroSD memory card: Create a folder on the memory card. Name it anything other than Music (the phone will automatically create a Music folder which can not be used as ringtones). Once you insert your card into your phone, the tunes should come up when you open your ringtone menu!

Hope this helps! Good luck! :)
