If the phone is a Rogers or Fido variant then it will not be able to use user created or third party MP3 files as ringtones. This is due to the Rogers software customization, which uses DRM to restrict content use. This uses a software restriction method known as DRM (digital rights management) to control what and how content can be used. The provider places their own software on the phone which restricts the use of MP3 files as ringtones to those purchased directly through them or limited to a size of 600kb. Most carriers now enforce DRM, through customized software on the phones, to restrict how certain content is used. Unless a file is digitally signed with the carriers key or within some other specification set out by the carrier, it will not be usable as a ringtone. You should contact your service provider for more information on DRM and other content restrictions they have placed on your phone. You may still have the option to use other file formats such as midi, wav, mp4, m4a, and, unrestricted AAC.
You can also have your phone flashed / debranded, to allow for custom ringtone use.

You could also use the DRM packager on Sony Ericsson's Developer site to bypass these restrictions. It may be a bit complicated, but once you get it, it's simple.

Unable to load a mp3 ringtone on my Omnia


You should have a USB cable that comes with the phone n the driver for your files transfer from PC to Phone [I hope you got that CD too]. Now first of all install that driver from the CD...when it asks connect your phone to the computer with the USB cable. Open up the File Manager,My Music or you can create a new folder n name it Ringtones n start transfering...it is very easy once u start doing it. Another method is...you do that via Bluetooth option...take ringtones or songs from somebody's phone. Let me know if there's any prob.

-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
:)

My cell phone is not reading the memory card


After reading through the archives of related problems, I decided to try some of the suggestions. Here is what I did for my LG Shine...I checked the sd card on the computer to make sure all the data i transferred was on the card and it was. After that, I use the music player on the cell phone to load the music into my library and was able to listen to the music stored on the sd card.The music which was downloaded to the sd card will only play through the music player on the cell phone and for the ringtones I went to the website and made my ringtones. http://makeownringtone.com/ This is the fool proof way of making your favorite songs your ringtone. Follow the instructions giving and in under 3 mins you can make your ringtone. The ringtones have to be under 300kb and in the mp3 format. Its really simple and easy to use and downloaded them to my computer. Hint of advice: email it to yourself that way you can forward it to your friends and family. Might I remind you that its FREE!!!!
ENJOY ;-}

Transfering my music as a ringtone


i've always just converted the files on my computer to .wav files then sent them as a PIX message to my phone. In the text message options on your phone there is an option to save audio as ringtone. Hope this helps. You can google MP3 to Wav converters. There are free software for this.
