    You tryed by bluetooth and by connecting it to the PC to transfer music to it in the Sounds folder? What does it show when it doesn't allow you to put music on it?

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:

www.cellsea.com
www.makeownringtone.com
www.ventones.com
www.myxertone.com

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! :)

Lg Shine Flip Ringtones


-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 phoneautomatically 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

My lg shine flip


Could you try and download limewire (google it) or something

find what song you'd like to use as your ringtone, and then transfer it to your phone using the cable that came with your LG?

On my phone it can only store so much and then it needs to use a minidisk.

Another way is to go on the internet using your phone and download songs...maybe there's some free ones that are available.

hope this helps.

If you're ripping your hair out this sunny Sunday afternoon...remember, you are NOT on you own! : )

Lg shine - downloading music from my laptop


If you want to put music files from your laptop onto your LG Shine, you can either use a LG USB cable or a Micro SD Card.The Micro SD card will probably need an additional adapter to have it big enough for your Laptop or PC slot. Once the music files are on the Micro SD card, insert the card into your LG Shine and go to My Stuff". Then, select "Audio and ringtones" and select the file on your memory card. Press the "Options" button and select the copy function and paste it into your phone.
