downloading ringtones

Has anyone figured out how to download custome ringtones to the focus??? Also is it possible to record a voice note and use it as a ringtone or text notifier?
There is no way to get custom ringtones on the focus yet. We will be able to once the mango update becomes available. I hope its soon cause other phones have had the mango for a couple weeks but it still isnt on the focus Sad
Did you figure out the ringtones? My son figured mine out for me and I am eternally grateful...I hate the generic ringtones; either they are "noisy" to me or too quiet to hear.

My son signed me up to ringtone maker, Mobile 17. it's perfect! I ca...
This is for the above message as well as for bingcrosby.

In addition to the tool that bingcrosby mentioned, I found a great website to use. It's free to register and use. You can create your own ringtones, and the site sends it via text message...

Handsfree Mode

My Focus seems to be in handsfree mode when I attach my Motorola H70 Bluetooth headset. How do I turn off the handsfree mode when using the Bluetooth headset?

Wrong specs??

If I am not mistaken, isn't this phone using Hummingbird processor and Super AMOLED panel? Phonescoop specs mention Qualcomm processor..
It is Super AMOLED for sure. However, every website I've seen had this listed as the Snapdragon processor not Samsung's Hummingbird. Maybe they had extra Snapdragons lying around or maybe Windows Phone 7 doesn't play nice with Hummingbird? Or maybe...
It's the right specs

It does have Super AMOLED

However, it has Snapdragon processor because Microsoft forced all the OEM's to use that chip.

So Samsung had to take their own chip out and grudgingly buy the Snapdragon to put in their phone. I...

Text notification

When new text messages are received, the message scrolls across the screen. Has anyone figured out how to turn that off? I'd like just a simple notification that I have a new message. Thanks.

Lots of fake meetings....

But seriously, I'm a little frustrated myself with mobile productivity offerings, and if Windows doesn't get it right...

Maybe an update?

I'd honestly pay just about anything to have a full featured Excel creator/editor on my phone/tablet.

Oh well. The Macbook Air is in the mail, hopefully its just as portable as my iPad. (sorry, I'm really not trying to plug the Air, I'm just so damn excited to get it!!!)
I think the HD7 is the best of the WP7 devices. It would be better if TMO had better rural coverage and broader 3G. If TMO expands their coverage and includes 3G in rural areas I think they would have a better chance at taking the #2 spot.
