Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

2 Answers

Bluetoothing ringtones I cut songs down to approx. 15 seconds on Audacity, export them as WAV files, convert them to MP3s, and then bluetooth them from my Dell to my Motarola Razr V3. I had a different phone (exact same model) a couple weeks ago that could use those MP3s as ringtones. This new phone (same model), however, will play them but doesn't give the option of using them as ringtones. Am I doing something wrong, or is this particular phone defective?

The V3 is deceiving because it has many different software versions. If you power the phone off, and then press and hold the * and # keys while pressing the power button, it should come up with a black screen with white letters telling you the bootloader version. I bet if you compare the two, the bootloader will be different.

There is the V3i, V3a, V3m, V3r, V3re, V3c etc.

I've heard of many of the new razors not being able to use MP3's as ring tones.

please rate as at least helpful as there is no FixYa solution for your problem.

Sorry for the bad news.

How to change mp3 into ring tones ?


  • Direct your sound-editing software to where the LAME library is located on your computer.

  • Make a duplicate of the MP3 song or sound you are using for the ringtone, and move that copy into a separate file to work on it. This will prevent you from losing your original MP3.

  • Open your MP3 into your sound-editing program, and find the 15 to 25 seconds you would like to use as your ringtone. Crop that section out of the original MP3.

  • Export your new ringtone as an MP3, and save it with an appropriate name.

  • Connect your phone to your computer using a data cable or Bluetooth connection to transfer the ringtone to the phone. Alternatively, you can email the ringtone file to your phone if your phone supports that service.

  • Download Sound-Editing Software
  • Download free sound-editing software from the Internet. Audacity (available for Mac OX, Windows and Linux) is one of the most popular and widely used versions

  • Download the LAME compression library for free. Store it on your hard drive where it won't be accidentally deleted.

    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

    Plug in for downloaded ringtone


    You can't actually do that.
    If you have the original version Katana, the 6600, it's only plays polyphonic ringtones, in the qualcom format of QCB.
    Freeringers.net has a good help section if you sign up with them, here's a cut and paste version.

    You basically need a program to convert an mp3 to a wav file format. (like dbpower amp but there are many others, alot of them freeware).
    Sound recorder on your computer applications, to pick a segment and crop the audio. Usually about 30 to 60 seconds is good enough. There's a file limit size on the Katana for downloads of about 100kb.
    And a converter program that will convert wav to qcb. You can download an application from Qualcom Communications for free, or this little program called purevoice.
    http://www.freeringers.net/apps/pvconv.exe
    All you do is little drag the wav file over this application and it automatically compiles in about 3 seconds, a qcb file into the same folder.
    http://www.qctconnect.com/products/purevoice_downloads.html
    Provides the full version of purevoice convertor so you can listen to the quality of the qcb file.

    You'll need an application to convert the MP3 or CD to a WAV file. We suggest this free tool:
    dBpowerAmp Converter 10.1 (Download and install it)

    You'll also need PureVoice for QCP conversion:
    PureVoice Converter (No installation. Right click "Save Target As...")

    If you're running Windows Vista you'll need the Windows XP version of Sound Recorder:
    Sound Recorder (Right click link, "Save Target As...", save to "C:\Windows\System32\")


    s_win.gif Conversion Steps:

    Note: If you want to rip a song from a CD, replace step 1 with these instructions.
    1. We'll assume you're converting a file named "test.mp3" for this guide. Insert your own file name instead. Run dBpowerAmp and select the "test.mp3" file and click "Open".
    2. Change the drop downs to "Wave", "16 Bit (CD)", "8000 Hz", "1 'Mono'", Output To: "Folder", and "Browse" to select your "Desktop".
    3. Click "Convert >>" and once it's completed click "Finished" and you'll have a file named "test.wav" on your Desktop.
    4. Run Sound Recorder (included with Windows) and from the "File" menu "Open..." the "test.wav" file created in step 3. (if you can't find Sound Recorder, see Needed Applications above)
    5. Shorten the ringtone to 30 seconds or less. You can also crop it so it starts at the beginning of the choirs. To crop the audio clip, use the "Edit" menu to "Delete Before Current Position" or "Delete After Current Position". [?]
    6. Click the "File" menu and select "Save" which will overwrite the "test.wav" file.
    7. Grab and drag the icon for "test.wav" and drop it on top of the PureVoice icon "pvconv". It will convert and create a new file named "test.qcp", almost like magic.

    I cannot get the songs to play that i have recorded on the sim card for my e250 phone, it has an mp3 player, what am i doing wrong?


    if u have recorded songs by recorder, it is not saved in format of mp3 instead it is saved in .wav format.. So if possible u should convert .wav in .mp3 by converter software. One of the example is mp3 cutter. This software is very accurate. if u use this, .wav can be converted in .mp3 for sure and transfer the mp3s in ur phone or memory card by bluetooth, IR or memory card or pc suite.
    i m looking for ur feedback .

    LG shine: using my mp3s as ringtones


    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! :)

    I found this on a website. I used to have the LG VX8500 but now I have the Sidekick 3 and didn't get the chance to try it. Maybe it works....

    This is for windows users.

    You will need BitPim .62, as well as a CD Ripping program called CDex, found at

    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/c...1.exe?download

    Install CDex, and open it up.

    Click on the Convert menu, and click where it says "Convert compressed audio files to "Wav Files"

    Then Browse and find your Mp3.

    Click convert, and make note of where the new .wav is saved.

    Then use Sound Recorder (standard windows program --- Start>Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Sound Recorder --- ) to open up the .wav file, and crop the part of the song you want as a ringer.

    Once the file is the size you want it, go to file and then save.

    Use CDex once again to reverse the conversion -- Click Convert and then click "Convert .wav files to compressed audio files".

    That's all you need to do. Then just use BitPim .62 to add the file to your phone.
