Mike; I do not have a Moto "Q", but I do have their previous Smart Phone, the MP220. I struggled with this also until I dug through the folders to find where they kept the "canned" ringtones that come with the phone. See if you can place the MP3 ring tones that you want use in the following folder: Storage\Application Data\Sounds.
If you put you file in there, you should be able to find it when you go to the set ring tone menus. Also, with my MP220, sometimes certain MP3's would still not show up in the menu and I would have to convert them to a WAV (which are much bigger, but hopefully for a ring tone, you only need a few seconds of the song). Hope this helps and I did not waste your time baseing all this on the MP220 and Windows S... (continues)
Hi, I'm getting close to the death of my old Moto V710, of which I was able to make custom ringtones and put them on the phone via the flash card. I'm wondering if you or anyone else had first-hand success with doing this on the Q without having to pay extra for the functionality? The people at Verizon told me there aren't any VZ phones that can do it for free anymore but they barely knew what I was talking about.
