Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I downloaded a couple of songs to use as ringtones and they are in the correct folder on my card. I set one as my ringtone and called my cell phone from my house phone and it worked. I cut my phone off and I was going to show my wife what it sounded like (when she got off work). The ringtone was set back to one of the originals that came on the phone. It worked fine until I cut the phone off and back on. Same results. I called NET 10 and they said that it was a feature on this phone. I just don't see that though. I new phone and it won't save a ringtone. They said the memory resets when powered off.

    That was the deal and NET 10 didn't even know how to fix it. I had to move the song from my card to the phone memory. Thanks. I figured it out while on the phone with NET 10. It is a great phone but the manual is lacking a lot of info.

Just a thought: perhaps your card slot gets disabled whilst in stand-by, as part of the power management procedure. Probably, after you wake your phone up, after a little while, your songs will play as ringtones again. Try to copy them to your phone's internal memory, instead (and delete them from the card, so that they won't show doubled).
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

Picked up my motorola defy yesterday,how do i tape a song and set it to my ringtone


Create a folder named 'ringtones' (without the quotes) on the root of your memory card, and copy the song you want to set as ringtone to that folder. Then, go to 'Menu > Settings > Sound > Phone ringtone'. The song you copied should be available to be selected.
You can set specific ringtones (sound files you copy to that folder, or any system sounds) to the people in your contact list who happen to call you most. This way you would know whos is calling you without even looking at your phone. Anyway, go to 'Contacts', select the contact entry you want to have his/her specific ringtone changed (you can press the search button and type his/her name), and tap 'Menu > Edit'. Slide to the end of the screen and tap the arrow at the right of 'Additional info'. The arrow will face down. Slide to the end of the screen again, and select 'Ringtone'. After selecting the ringtone, tap 'Save'.
Hope you find these informations useful, somehow.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

Set my fav tunes as ringtone ?


Ringtones or songs downloaded or copied to your storage card are not automatically added to the ringtone selection menu. You need to go to the Music application and set a ringtone or song in your storage card as your ringtone. To do that top up arrow and Music then tap the three paralel lines at the bottom-left corner of the screen to go to the Library. Play the song that you want to use as a ringtone and on the Playback screen, press MENU and then tap Set as ringtone.

To change the ringtone press MENU, and then tap Settings. Tap Personalize > Default ringtone. The Phone ringtone selection menu then opens and you can scroll through the available ringtones and tap the ringtone you want to use then tap OK.

Copy and paste your ring tones or music to My Documents/My Ringtones folder. You will be able to select the music or tones at the Sounds and Notifications setup page.

Create a folder called My Ringtones under My Storage. Put all your MP3 songs in My Storage/My Ringtones.

To change ringtones, go to Settings, phone profiles, highlight the profile you are using, choose options, then edit, the screen will show the settings for incoming calls, here you can scroll down and change the call ringtones, highlight voice call ringtones, press options,choose change, this takaes you to My files folders, go to the folder you keep your tunes in and highlight the song you wish to use. press options, then select. Press options again and then save.To change text tones, you do the same, but once in the screen to show settings for incoming calls, you must scroll right to show the new message screen, then you can choose the song you wanat in the same way as for calls. remember to save tho.

Need to download ringtones to my sandisk and put on my cell phone


Download an application called "audacity" after you downlaod and install it, you will need to get a file called lame mp3 encoder. You can then open a file in audacity and crop out the portion of the song you need to use as a ringtone. when you export as an mp3 audacity will ask for the lame mp3 encoder, just open the file location where you installed the encoder.

here are detailed instructions:

  1. Go to the LAME download page. ( http://lame.buanzo.com.ar/ )
  2. Under "For Audacity on Windows", left-click on the link "libmp3lame-win-3.97.zip" and save the zip folder to anywhere on your computer.
  3. When you have finished downloading the ZIP folder, unzip it and save the file lame_enc.dll that it contains to anywhere on your computer.
  4. The first time you use the "Export as MP3" command, Audacity will ask you where lame_enc.dll is saved.

That will get you a portion of the song, but depending on the phone you have will determine how you use that clip as a ringtone.

Hope this helps!

How do i put ringtones on my lg shine?


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!
