    I have the same problem. Not able to get ringtones someone has sent via text message.

    This phone is crappy. Downloads tones fine, and you can assign them. But then the phone RE-assigns the tones to whomever IT wants to. Exchanged twice....all of them do it. The CRAPPY tones you get with the phone will stay assigned tho.

So after working on this all night long, I've got it figured out!

Ok so first things first, I don't know about your phone but mine (at least with cricket) won't allow attachments on sms messages, only mms messages.

So you will need to make sure you can accept picture messages, with cricket you are supposed to be able to for free however, that wasn't the case for me, I had to sign up for a month but it's only $3 and I intend to get everything I want in the next week.

So once you know you can recieve picture messages (mms) you can then email yourself ringtones.. ok well it's not quite that simple...

First you can only receive a .mid file, so mp3's are out, at least if you send it to yourself with that format. You also can only accept files that are 113kb or less, so if it's bigger you will have to shrink it or shorten it. To shrink or shorten your MP3 PRIOR to changing the format, download switch at Once you've downloaded it open or drag and drop the mp3 in the empty space. On the bottom left click on encoder options you want to change the constant bit rate to something that will help bring the file size down.. if it's just a tad too big like 125kb then select 112kb, if it's 400kb then select 48 or 56, just above that you can select where you would like it to be when you finish converting it, I like the desktop so I don't have to search for it. Then click on convert, you then find your new mp3 on your desktop (or where ever you chose) and check the properties to be sure it is 113kb or less, if not go back and adjust the bit rate again, or you can shorten your clip by downloading wavepad sound editor both programs are free.

Once your file is the right size, it's time to change the format.

To change the format without a converter you must open your folder options and scroll down and deselect *hide known file extensions. This way it will show the name.ext, you simply click on it to rename it and change it to name.mid Once this is done you can email it to your phone... my mms email is I just add the audio as a file attachment.

Once your phone recieves the message it should begin playing when you open the message, if the audio doesnt play then it was in the wrong format, try again, otherwise press the options button, go down and select save as sound, then put in the name you want (if you want it changed) and click ok.

Now you can find it under the media/ melody gallery/ downloads.

For some fun and cool free ringtones you can download to your comp then fix them so you can send them to your phone, check out

I can't save ringtones via email attachment to my i425

Boost Mobile does not accept ringtones from 3rd parties, whether its sent via email or mp3 attachment. U might want to try sending it through the SMS. Maybe u can save it that way. Only way I've been able to get ringtones is thru the Boost site only. No "free ringtone" websites are able to send ringtones thru a message, cuz Boost blocks this. And Ive tried them all. Until they provide us with phones with SD cards, were outta luck, sorry.

Saving Ring Tones

Razrs are not capable of saving anything as a ringtone. Motorola did away with that with the new software versions.

Problem finding saved sound

Symbian OS/S60 phone: With the Voice Recorder on the screen, open Options. Select Go To Gallery. All the recordings you have saved can be accessed from the Gallery. You should see a list of recorded tunes. Highlight a recording, open Options and choose "Set as ringing tone." Windows Mobile phone: When you are still in the Voice Recorder, highlight a recording in the list and open the Menu. Select Set As Ringtone.
If your phone menu doesn't show the Set As Ringtone choice at all, you have to set it manually. Go to the Home screen, push Start, and open File Manager. You have to move the recording from the folder /Storage/My Documents/Notes to the folder /Storage/Application Data/Sounds. Then, go to the Start menu and launch Settings. Select Sounds, open Ring Tone, and pick up the recorded ring tone.
