    I'm having the same problem. The only way I'm able to get it as a ring tone is to use the phone's audio recorder and record music. from stereo. I would like some help on this issue too b/c there has to be a faster/better way.

    I too have the LG UX830.  Only a few weeks old so still working out the details.  I have a sandisk memory card installed from my other phone, Motorola Krazr.  I can't get my LG to recognize the phone.  Is there a computer software to install to recognize the LG thru my PC?  The manual gives little support in that area and it seems difficult to find additional support ANYWHERE?  Hum.....

You need usb........instead of putting music in the music folder put the song you want as ringer in the audios folder.....this is on your computer....then unplug the usb.....then go to menu go to 2nd screen down(2nd key on the right) go to audio folder then to my audio go to external (3rd tab) go to options(paper looking tab on the bottom of screen) go to move/copy(5) go to move click yes. when you change your ringer it will be in you my audio now

Go to and they will text the ringtones to you. Or you can bluetooth them from your computer if your computer has that feature. Not sure how to do a direct transfer, but these 2 things will work as a work around.... I am sure you have figured it out by now but if not here you go, otherwise this is meant for people looking for a answer

After reading the "Best Solution" above posted by
mstewart1226, I feel it is important to add that when using windows media player, it will create an artist folder and inside the artist folder will be the album folders, for how ever many albums you have in your library, by that artist. I found that you cannot simply add the entire folder. You must access the folder where the ACTUAL mp3's are being stored, (via the artist and album folders). Simply move those mp3 files from the library/source, to your phone/destination by dragging them over from window to window. If anyone has more questions on this technique, send me a message through

Us cellular LG UX830

wut i did was : First i downloaded this program named audacity so u can cut chunks of the song. then i downloaded another program called Switch converter cuz this particular phone only plays songs on mp3 or mp4 format. unfortunately u can only cut up to 278 kb which is about 18 seconds of the song. but that's wut i did and it works just fine .

Lg ux830

easy, it depends on what song format you have your audio files in that you want as a ringtone, if they are mp3s you cant use them, i have the lg ux830, i dont really like it anymore cuz the touch screen is so futile and total ****, well anways back to your question, just go on your computer and convert the songs to a .WAV format and they should be able to play
