For the backgrounds check out

The only MP3 ringtones are the ones you can download from the t-mobile catalog. The sidekick is pretty locked down when it comes to apps, games and ringtones.

Well i tried my sd card and it dont want to read it . i tried it on my laptop and many other places and it works perfectly . why dosent my sidekick lx want to read the sd card ?

Well I do not know,but I have similar problem. I can see pictures I downloaded to many folders and I could see the first mp3 set of files(about 254 of them). But when I added more mp3 it tells me "No media on file". If I hook up to my PC it sees everything just fine,I can move add and erase no problem,but sidekick doesn't see it

I can tell you that if you have pictures on them they have to be put into a specific folder to view on the phone. The easiest thing to do is format the card on your computer. After I did that the sidekick had no problems reading mine. If you ever add photos to the card from an outside source such as usb cable make sure you put the pictures in the exact same folder the sidekick camera puts them in.

When you take out your battery wih out shutting down it erases everything but only for about an hour everything does come back it does not erase it forever! Just to let everyone know! Of course if you have an option besides taking out the battery then use that but waiting for it to die is just silly and would take forever!

Sidekick slide

You have to download them from the download catalog. Once you do that, then you just click on the phone icon, open up the settings and click on general and go down until you see the incoming call ringtone, click it and scroll down the import, and select the song you want.

If you are wondering if there is a way to add in your own custom made ringtone to use, then as of now there isn't.

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