Making your own ringtones, not using verizon

Ok so you were very helpful in explaining that i should put my ringtone into my " my sounds" file, However i don't know from there how to set it as a ringtone ? I just had my phone the lg env2 vx 9100 flashed programmed from verizon onto the metro pcs network in doing so loosing the web and picture messaging. Is it still possible to make ringtones out of my music on my sd card ?

Any sound, including recorded sounds, that are sent offers the option to save as ring tone upon opening the file. You do not have to send as a picture file.

Highlight the sound under your sounds file, select "send", and send it to your own number. When you receive it, open it and select options. One option (scroll down) is to save as a ringtone.

I do this all the time, so it absolutely works.

I had a similar problem......
I send the mp3's .. 30 sec or less and under 500 k to myself from my email at to myself using....

this from your email... obviously your own number just like it is here. dont need the 1 infront of the area code and no dashes

as for getting the mp3 can rip from a cd..or buy one online...and edit with any free mp3 editor like audacity..find it here site is clean as are all there files this program works on.....Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/XP64/Vista64 and it's free / open source

I had trouble with mine trying to send the mp3 to my phone ....verizon service...LG VX8350 model.....

I sent the mp3 as an attachment by itself and it would not let me download it i get the attachment but it was blank....

So my remedy was to do two things....send again but instead of typing out a short message, and attaching the mp3 i added a small pic...a .jpg first the .jpg attached it....then the mp3 ...attached it then send...and bam

recieved my the text i typed in the email....then i can see the pic i attached and then the mp3 started to play automatically....and now i have the save option as ringtone/ sound etc. etc. and i can save the pic to if i want.

I have the same phone. The only thing I can tell you, is to get a USB Micro Cord, and download Bitpim to your computer. You can find the driver to the env2 at Then you can make songs yourself, and plug your phone in and send it as a ringtone through the cord so that you dont have to email them to yourself and worry about how to get them to your ringtones. In Bitpim, go down to ringtones, then up top there is a button that has a phone with a plus sign. Find the song you want, and convert it. ( This takes about 20 secs.) then you can listen to the song, and clip it where you want it. Then after you make the ringtone, highlight it, and click send phone data, then mark the box that says ringtone. It will send it to your phone, and turn your phone off by itself, then turn it back on, look in your ringtones, and there it is. Sounds like a lot of work, but its really not. Good luck.

You cannot bluetooth any ring tones so have your friends or your self send them to you in a text message and save them as the person above described.

Yes, it should be an MP3 format and dropped into your ringtones folder. then go into ringtones, select " set as " in bottom left corner and select set as ringtone.

It has to be a low bit sound file like 73kb sound file, if its too big it may not play the whole thing.

Once the file is in your sounds folder you can then send yourself a picture message with the sound in it. once you "receieve" the message you click options and you should be able to save sound as ring tone

    Sorry, i did not read far enough into your post. If you are un able to send out picture messages then from my personal experience playing around the env2 I do not believe it is possible.

How can I download my own ringtones to samsung schu410 on verizon network ??

Although your phone does support custom POLYPHONIC ringtones, this phone does not support Samsung PC Studio - where you can use software to copy ringtones from your computer to your phone.

However, by downloading the Samsung USB drivers and IF you have a memory card you may be able to transfer your ringtones to the memory card in your phone from your computer then:

1. From the main screen, press 'OK on the navigation key' > MENU, use the right navigation key to
highlight 'Settings & Tools'.
2. Press Sounds Settings.
3. Press Call Sounds.
4. Press Call Ringtone to choose:
• Preloaded ringtone(s) or
• Custom ringtone(s)
- Press Get New Ringtones.
Then follow the prompts.

To download the USB drivers click on the following link, then click on. "Software' just under the 'Downloads' Tab. Then click on the EXE File (under File) then download and install the USB drivers to your PC.

Moto vu204 cellphone - cannot open or unlock ringtones

To get FREE ringtones you need a Usb Cable for your phone and you need 2 software programs.

1. Motorola Update software
2. P2K Commander.

First run the MSU then the P2K. browse the directories and find your other ringtones and place what mp3s you want there.

Next you must delete a few files that determine what sounds you paid for and which you didn't. They are Mytone.DB and 2 others I dont recall atm. Once these are deleted you reboot your phone and those 3 files regenerate themselves but NOW THEY DO NOT KNOW WHICH FILES TO BLOCK. So now all your music you put on the phone can be set as a ringtone. Its a learning curve to do this just be patient and read up on it. GL

Ringtone for each phone number

I have verizon too and I used to have this phone. You need to go to contacts, and choose the contact you want to put the custom ringtone for. Once you get to the contact you want to add the ringtone for, press edit. Scroll down till it says ringtone, then press "set" and choose from your list of ringtones. Press ok, then press save. This should work. If not, contact verizon because then it would be a software issue :) Hope I've helped you out!

Motorola V750 cant get ringtones for free?

You can txt yourself the sound and when you receive the txt you save it as a ringtone. If you have a computer with bluetooth capability you can send ringtones that you can make yourself through bluetooth. I use, make my own and transfer them to my phone. If anyone else wants the ringtone I just txt it to them. I just did about 18 ringtones for my husband and he has the motorola adventure v750.

LG Env Phone and Ringtones

I can Help. First of all, dont pay a cent to verizon, i have had issues with them for a while about overcharges. Anyway...

Download a program called " Bitpim " Its free, or " ImTOO3gp " i got IMToo3gp from " the pirate Bay . com, using a bit torrent, the bitpim is from a site that downloads straight to P.C.

Hook your phone to your P.C. Via Cable. What i did is i bought the verizon package for there VCAST music sync. It has the P.C. Drivers for your phone but there built into the program so you have to install it, but dont actually use the program. once thats installed, hook the phone to the P.C. and you can use Bitpim to download all the data from your phone, the " ImToo3gpp also works but instead of hooking the phone, you take your Micro SD, put it in the bigger holder that should have come with it, get a USB media port that fits the SD card 9 got mine at wallmart for $13. once you connect it, it shows up as another drive on your P.C. like a Pin drive. Then you can covert the music and put the destination folder as the SD's music folder and the program automatically converts it. It pretty sweet and helpull. i was able to drop MP3's and i was able to make ringtones. You have to have a little working knowledge of converting files. The ringtones use MPEG 3 or 4 files and you have to put them in your " MY_SOUNDS" folder that the phone created on the Micro SD, dont drop them in the music folder or youll get ringtones playing in your songs list.

I was able to Make 3gpp2 Files of the ventuire brothers and have movies on my phone also but its tricky.

Hope this helps.
