Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone
Have the newest version of bitpim
make sure you have the drivers for the USB cable you are using.
let it find the phone(it will come up as other CDMA phone)
click FILESYSTEM on the left at the bottom
expand the folder
right click on lg_mysound.dat and save it to your desktop
after you save it right click lg_mysound.dat in bitpim and delete it
now click brew
now drop the songs you want to use as ringers in this file. they will automaticlly load into your phone. it isnt the fastest process but it works.
after they are done loading onto the phone, unhook USB cable from computer, power the phone off and then back on.
the items you just transferred with now be in the my audio file where they need to be to assign them for individual ringers.
everytime you wnat to add new ringers to the phone you have to complete all the steps above, even the deleting that one certain file. not a very hard process and has worked well for me.
good luck and happy mp3 loading songs into the phone as ringers.

If you have someone send you an audio file through text/pics...
save the file, go to settings on your phones menu, go to sound, go to ringers, go to shuffle, select list and it should take you to the ringtone list and select the song you want.
found that out from a friend who has the same phone as me.. but it only works if someone sends you a ringtone in a message...
sadly i found this out after i bought the data cable

Due to DRM restrictions you can't use certain MP3 files as ringtones. However, with Web Access you use any song you want as a ring tone.

These phones wont let you set ringtones that people bluetooth u or send u...so this is the only way that i found around it and its completely free so if you have the alltel lg scoop try it out www.myxer.com

So i just gotta ask .... what the heck good is the sd memory card if I can't use it to make ringtones for my phone?

I just got this phone (alltel) and we've figured out a few things:
when loading music onto sd card , put files not only in "music" folder , put some in "audio" folder, they wont set as ringtones or even show as a choice unless you put them in "audio"
another problem most people have: cant get pc to recognize phone- i formatted the card, then put it in my sansa 1gig mp3 player , dragged my files on & voila' ..i took the card out of mp3 player & it works on the phone..this was an easy fix to a problem that tons of people are having.
getting ringtones .. ventones.com upload your own music, make the ringtone..click the "send to phone button" , then open browser & type in the address & it will auto dwnld ..very easy
you can set each contact in your addy book to have their own tone.
the only thing you CANT do is set individual ringtones for texts, you can only have 1 for all the texts

Ive had the same problem with mine. on every other phone i have had i could set my music as ringers, but with the lg scoop i cant. I know i can put it on shuffle but you cant give people in your phone their own ringer :( stupid alltel

Simple solution, Alltel belives and enforces digital copyright management, while you can listen to your favorite tones and music, you will NOT be able to use them as ringtones, or use them with any of the features of the phone other then playing the tunes for entertainment. The only way to use files as ringtones is to purchase the files from alltel, or use their realtone jukebox, etc.
Sorry about the news , but welcome to ALLTEL!
