Ringtones I can't set bluetoothed sounds as ringtones. They are in the mp3 format and are less than 30 seconds long. I am not given the option to apply as a ringtone. I even purchased the Motorola Phone Tools software and it is still not working!!!!!

    It is a V3a (Alltel) I tried bluetoothing from my old V3c. It let me store them as sounds, but I can't apply them as ringtones. I bought MPT and tried it from there, still doesn't work. Haven't noticed any thing funky with the phone other than the ringtone issue.

    It still is not working.

  • kimmysoo Apr 17, 2008

    If by memory card, you mean a SMS card, Alltel doesn't use those.

    I have 19.6MB available.

If you are trying to bluetooth ringtones to another phone it will not work. Within the last 6-8 months all newer phones have been blocked from receiveing bluetoothed ringtones. This is a copyright infringement. It will only be stored in a music player file. Sorry to disappoint anyone.
Any phone older than at least 6-8 months will allow this still to be done by bluetooth.

The problem is the way that Alltel has their phone configured. They will not allow you to set any transfered music as a ringtone. Alltel may say that it is motorollas fault, but they make the same phone that each carrier uses. No other carrier has this problem. I have been searching ways to make my mp3's ringtones, but as of yet no success. Motorola Phone tools will let you transfer them into your phone, but they cant be used as ringtones. It sucks big time. Perhaps with Verizon buying out Alltel, we will see this problem change.

    so that was internal mem. you said ,you dont have a mem. card. i think you have when you buy it , theres a stock memcrd inserted there...we must know if you have .. because if all the data that was stored in your mem does'nt play along with the phone it must be corrupted , you can format it ... using ur fone or using a cpu...and all data that was there and get corrupted you cannot use it... co'z u have faulty memcard.. and if it still like that after you format it.. there's nothing you can do but to change it... and as i know youve got 30mb internal memory..and if you dont have that memcard...go to the service center and change the firmware of ur cellphone with the same version..your program are corrupted

I want to download an app to download songs and ringtones

Method 1:
Transfer the song(s) you want to set as ringtones onto the microSD card either by connecting to pc via USB or using an SD adapter. Next, Tap on the Music Player, open the music list, press the menu button and select PLAY ALL, this will scan your SD card for music/audio files. Once all your songs have been added to the list, select the song you want to set as ringtone and click MENU key, choose SET AS RINGTONE and that will take you to the RIngtone Trimmer, make the ringtone 30 seconds or less, select Trim and you're done.

Method 2:

Root your HTC Hero, create a directory in your C: drive and name it HeroRIngtones, HTC, or whatever and put there all the ringtones you want to be added (30 seconds or less), then open Command Prompt; make sure your device is connected and already visible. Run the following command "adb push directoryname/myringtone.mp3 /system/media/audio/ringtones" and press enter. Do same procedure for all the audio files you want to set as ringtones.

Method 2 is not available for non-root users.

Bluetooth down loads to ringtones

hello, wel if you already recieved it remember this cellphone has some 'conditions' in order for a ringtone to be accepted. it only takes mp3 and they MUST have the following chars:

8kHz (frecuency)
64Kbps (binary index)
MP3 (file format)
1 mono (channel)

then you gotta save it under the Audio section (not music) and just set it as a ringtone. It must appear on your ringtone list once it has passed the conditions. If you saved it on your MiniSD card then you need to either copy it to the phone Or enable the option thru a service application. Hope this helps.

You'll need a loader program. You can go to and look for UFNJal. It's the only TRUE offline loader for iDEN phones. It is VERY easy to use(drag & drop which no other loader for iDEN phones has). It also has the current drivers needed to make your computer recognize your phone.

The ringtones will need to be in the right format in order for them to work. It can use MP3 ringtones. They need to be no longer than 30 seconds, and must be 32kbps, 8-bit, mono.

LG shine: using my mp3s as ringtones

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:

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! :)
