Motorola and the variouscarriers have even gone as far as disabling the Bluetooth OBEX filetransfer service so you are left with a very crippled Bluetooth. Thereason for this is that Motorola wants you to spend more money on acouple of options that they have:
Spend close to$59.95 for their “Motorola Phone Tools” software to charge your phone,transfer pictures, ring tones, sync with your Microsoft Outlook, songs,and other tasks. Update: You can get Motorola Phone Tools now through Amazon for less than $5!
Spend money to transfer these files wirelessly, to increase your monthly usage.
so to connect your motorola phone to computer you need to buy phone tools where you should be able to get from your mobile operator. and thats how you would be able to connect your motorola phone to computer. hope this help.
The only way is to put in a sd card then plug into pc the pc should see the card, yes you can put a full song on phone you just can not apply it as a ring tone because it is too long,, you should have motorola phone tools,,but if you have verizon,phone tools is useless unless you know how to hack the firmware.

By putting ring tones on your phone using Bluetooth or Motorola phone
tools, you may not be able to remove the ringtone from your phone.
Motorola is aware of this and in the future removing the user added
You cannot save a ringtone, picture, or music to a SIM card. Those files get saved to the "hard drive" of the phone. In order to get music into your phone to use as a ringtone, you must either
1. Download through one of those pay for services like Jamster or through t-zones or the like.
2. Use a data connection plan to download from the "mobile net". Sites are free that let you upload your music to an address that you can go to on your mobile web and download to your phone. The phone usually knows where to download the ringtone to on its own. T-mobile's t-zones costs $5.99 a month for the mobile web.
3. Use a USB connector and the media managing software for the phone to transfer the file to your phone. The Motorola RZR uses a software called Motorola Phone Tools to do this. The Blackberry also has its own Blackberry User Tools Software. Usually, the software shows you the "folders" on the phone and one will be called "tones". You put it there and it comes up in your list of ringtones.
Have you updated the firmware lately? Some of the newer versions wont let you delete your ringers once they are stored. Do you know how to use bitpim? If not shoot me an email and i can walk you through it. It is really easily to use. Good Luck!
It is good software, and will allow you to create your own ringtones, but doesn't allow you to upload music directly to your phone, unless your mobile phone service provider has unlocked that feature (most of them haven't, by default). Unlocking your phone usually costs about $25.00, and can be done at your mobile phone service provider (if they allow it, which most do) or by downloading an unlock tool, of which there are many different products to do so (most of which require a data cable be hooked to your phone from your computer, which they're more than happy to sell you). If you do buy one, be cautious, because there are many such companies which sell inferior product.
Disconnect the USB cable from your Motorola phone featuring iTunes, Wait 10 seconds & Reconnect the USB cable to the phone (it will confirm the connection with a tone). Again Wait 10 seconds, then open iSync and try syncing again. If the issue continues, turn your Motorola phone featuring iTunes off and then back on. Then open iSync and try syncing again.
yes u can set ring tone what ever you have in phone memory only( if it in sd card u cant set the tone, 1st move the ring tone from sd card to phone memory with format of Mp3... then u can njoy ring tone
