Transfer the song(s) you want to set as ringtones onto the microSD card
either by connecting to pc via USB or using an SD adapter. Next, Tap on
the Music Player, open the music list, press the menu button and select
PLAY ALL, this will scan your SD card for music/audio files. Once all
your songs have been added to the list, select the song you want to set
as ringtone and click MENU key, choose SET AS RINGTONE and that will take you
to the RIngtone Trimmer, make the ringtone 30 seconds or less, select
Trim and you're done.
Root your HTC Hero, create a directory in your C: drive and name it
HeroRIngtones, HTC, or whatever and put there all the ringtones you want
to be added (30 seconds or less), then open Command Prompt; make sure
your device is connected and already visible. Run the following command
"adb push directoryname/myringtone.mp3 /system/media/audio/ringtones"
and press enter. Do same procedure for all the audio files you want to
set as ringtones.
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.
look under your Music Player for the ringtone, instead of looking under audio and ringtones. Then open it like you want to listen to it. choose "Set as" then Ringtone ID. this should work as long as the file is formatted as an MP3
You can but the file needs to be labeled My Ringtones. If you have tones in the ringtone folder and its still not working check the size and format of the tones, windows mobile 6 was only designed to accept tones under 320k and in .mp3 or .wav formats.
have the newest version of bitpim make sure you have the drivers for the USB cable you are using. open bitpim let it find the phone(it will come up as other CDMA phone) click FILESYSTEM on the left at the bottom expand the folder click dload right click on lg_mysound.dat and save it to your desktop after you save it right click lg_mysound.dat in bitpim and delete it now click brew click media click lk click ms
now drop the songs you want to use as ringers in this file. they will automaticlly load into your phone. it isnt the fastest process but it works.
after they are done loading onto the phone, unhook USB cable from computer, power the phone off and then back on.
the items you just transferred with now be in the my audio file where they need to be to assign them for individual ringers.
everytime you wnat to add new ringers to the phone you have to complete all the steps above, even the deleting that one certain file. not a very hard process and has worked well for me.
good luck and happy mp3 loading songs into the phone as ringers.
