Ringtones not able to be set!

When i look at my sounds i can see all of my ringtones (i have a LOT of them)... then when i go to the "select ringtone" screen, it won't even show half of my ringtones as options... it's not because i have so many because i deleted some and no new ones are available... can anyone help me?

    I have the same problem but some work fine as ringtones (from my memory card)... just not others and they're the same format. It's when I put new tones on there that they won't show up as tone options. My previous ones show up fine. I can play the new tones from my sounds folder but can't apply them as ringtones - it shows up as 'default' instead of the ringtones so I'll have like 10 of them that say that. I deleted some (just incase I had too many) but it still didn't work. I even moved them to my phone too but still no luck. Don't laugh but I even tried texting them to myself and replacing the files and they still didn't work. I was going to bluetooth them to my friends phone and then back to myself but they wouldn't bluetooth to her. I thought maybe something was wrong with the files to I remade the songs (and downloaded the others from a different website), checked all the settings and put them on my memory card and I still can't get them to work as ringtones (although they're still playing fine in my sounds folder). Is there a way to fix this or is my phone messed up?

    i cant set my songs has ring tones on my ringtones on mynMOTORAZR V3xx

    Anyone know what formats ringtone formats are supported on a Motorola V325 / V325i?



    It looks like they do *.mid (midi), *.wav (wave), but these behave differently than the factory installed sound clips. Example: the factory installed clips are controlled by the master volume, while wav files clips blast through the speaker even when the master volume is turned to off? Very strange.



    Thanks,

    I can't set my sounds as ringtones on my nwe V3A. I even bought the Motorola Phone Tools software and it is still NOT working. Contacted Motorola support and was told they had to be in mp3 format (which they were) and under 30 seconds in length (which they were). I am getting very frustrated with this. CAN ANYONE HELP ME?????

  • jtd116 Apr 28, 2008

    I just got a new Razr V3a and it won't let me use ringtones that I received via bluetooth as ringers. I don't have a memory card or anything like that. Just wondering what changed between the old ones and new ones and how to fix it.

    SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE, CAN NOT ASSIGN PERSONAL RINGTONES TO PHONEBOOK ENTRIES. ALSO CANNOT DELETE FACTORY PICTURES OR SOUNDS, SURE WOULD FREE UP MEMORY SPACE IF I COULD GET RID OF ITEMS I WILL NEVER USE. PLEASE SEND FIX.

    i have the same problem i get a sounds msg. store it they try to set it as a ring tone and its on my sounds menu but not able to apply it as a ringtone, WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!?



  • calli_blaze Aug 04, 2008

    I can not set up personal ringtones. It allows me to add the information to the contact, but it will only play one ring tone for all of my contacts. Even if I have a different ring tone set up for them.



    The solution noted below does not help me.



    I can set any of my ring tones for everybody, I just can't have different ringtones for different people.

  • Redneck12 Aug 11, 2008

    Every time i go to the sounds menu i cant set any of the sounds my friends send me i cantadd them as my ringtone. Help!! I went to everything on my phone just to solve the problem. nothing helps!

I was researching this for a friend and discovered this supposed solution on the following forum. Souns a little complicated, but not bad. It will require downloading another program which is freeware but you will also need the motorola drivers for the phone (usually come with motorola phone tools)

Hope it helps

Hi there,
I understand now the difference between a sound being on the phone and the sound card. But how do I find where to format it into an MP3? I want to record my own sounds and set them as ringtones. They told me I could do this with the razor, but I can't figure out how to, and the manual isn't clear either.
Thanks

Install Samsung Galaxy ringtone

Go to settings> Sounds and Vibration >Ringtone.
Under Ringtone, scroll down the list to the bottom where you will see "Add from phone". Click on this + Add from phone and it will take you to your download ringtones. Hope this will help. I am using a Samsung Edge phone
and hopefully it's the same procedures. Some apps will allow you to change the ringtones within the app, so you don't have to go to the phone settings to do anything.

I need to know how to delete ringtones and how to assign ringtones to contacts

to delete ringtones, open the file explorer application from progams. navigate to device\my documents\ my ringtones , select the ones you want and delete. nice and ease. set a new ringtone either in the sound and notifications section of settings, or on a file, tap and hold on the screen on a file you wish to have as a ringtone and select "set a ringtone". if you are looking for these as a message tone you need to convert the file to a .wav file and import this to the windows folder on the device then select in the sounds and notifications tab in settings.

assigning tones to contacts can only be done if your contacts are outlook contacts, not sim contacts. open and edit a contact, scroll down to ringtone, although again with these i belive the file must be a .wav file and be located in the windows directory.

How do i get my ringtones from my sd card set as my ringtones?

I got ringtones from my microSD card on my Pantech Duo to set as ringtones by using another phone. I put my microSD card in another phone and bluetoothed them to my pantech duo. When i had bluetoothed all the ringtones i wanted onto my pantech duo, i removed my microSD card from the other phone and put it back in my pantech duo. Then i went to "Settings" on my pantech duo and then "sounds". The first option is "ringtones" so i used the circle button to select the ringtone i wanted and hit "done".
