    I have the slightly older version of LG Shine,
    and I have the same issue. I tried to blue-tooth the songs,
    and these problems occurred:
    1) it has to be a mp3 to set as a ringtone,
    2) it has to be under 10 seconds to set as a 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! :)

Im wondering if the lg shine is able to receive bluetooth ringtones such as the ones you can make on your own in iTunes for the Moto SLVR and V3 RAZR? if you dont know what this means im talking about going in iTunes, under info cutting the song to a 30 second length, going to advanced, convert song to mp3 then sending the clip by bluetooth to your phone.  anyone know if this works on the LG Shine?

Why the music cant be ringtones too?


There's a couple of reasons why this won't work. One, the MicroSD card is only for storage of music and other data, while your ringtones are stored on the phone itself. Secondly, your phone does not use .mp3 formatted files for ringtones.
You'll need software and a data cable to create ringtones using .mp3s to convert the song (and slice it) to where it can be used as a ringtone, and the data cable will allow you to store it on the phone where it can be accessed as a ringtone.
Susteen (susteen.com) offers datapilot software that can do this, and there are others who will as well.

Cant download ringtones to my LG shine phone


you have to have a memory card in your phone for it to show up as an attached device.....otherwise you will need a program that will recognize the device to transfer data to it. i recommend getting a cheap little micro sd card so that you can simply pull up the device from <my computer> and copy the ringtones/mp3s straight to the removable disk.

good luck

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 - downloading music from my laptop


If you want to put music files from your laptop onto your LG Shine, you can either use a LG USB cable or a Micro SD Card.The Micro SD card will probably need an additional adapter to have it big enough for your Laptop or PC slot. Once the music files are on the Micro SD card, insert the card into your LG Shine and go to My Stuff". Then, select "Audio and ringtones" and select the file on your memory card. Press the "Options" button and select the copy function and paste it into your phone.

Cant transfer music file to my lg ku990 via usb from pc to phone


Instead of loading the music manager, click on file in the LG Suite box, and then click 'content'. This will connect without a problem (at least it did for me, despite music manager not working), and then drag and drop music from your pc files, onto your phone. Hope this helps.
