sony ericson w810i personal ringtones and function

Does anybody know how to make it so that you can create your own ringtones from quicktime or other files. I opened some of my fav songs from itunes in quicktime and trimmed the first 30 secs to be ringtone options and dropped them into the ringtone folder on my w810i when it was plugged into my comp. they are there but can not be set as ringtones or even played. I can do it for my older phone so I don't see why i shouldn't be able to do it for this newer one with better technology. Thanks for any help. J3N

Suggestion for phone designers: Hangup-button lighting

One thing that would be nice to have on mobile phones is to have the hangup button always lit during a call, so even in a dark vehicle the user can easily find the hangup button to end a call. I understand the need to conserve battery by dimming or turning off the keypad after a few seconds; that makes perfect sense. But if just the hangup button alone could reamin lit during a call, it would use so little battery no one would notice the loss, and it would make it much easier to end a call when driving after dark. Just a thought for you forward-thinking phone designers & developers. Smile

Treo Smartphone and the Macintosh

I am going to buy one of the smartphones, but I want to know beforehand if it will be compatible with my Macintosh ibook to the extent that it will hotsync my itunes, icalendar, iphoto and my email address book. I want to simplify things - have one phone that is compatible with my computer.
This is my first time on the forum, so please be patient with me if I've put this in the wrong spot or the answer is elsewhere.
Thanks, everyone.

Playing saved video

How soon can we expect Smartphones to have the ability to play AVI, DIVX, MPG, etc...?

Or do they already have this ability? I always read about phones having the ability to play streaming video, but I would like to store shows that I have recorded to mpg to my phone to watch at my leisure. I have never read about phones doing this, and I would think this would be a big plus, that the phone retailers would skip over if the ability was present.

on smart phones/pda phones that run off windows mobil, why not just make a fullyloaded one?

on with wifi, bluetooth,WAP/web browser, everything? its obviously possable because some of them already come close; and don't say it would cost a lot more because i compared features on a whole bunch of them and to fill in the gaps wouldn't be that hard. so why cant we, or are we in the process or what?

Cingular Cripples SMS Application Development in US

I am a developer/entrepreneur working on a unique SMS application for US markets. My team and I have jumped though hoops to retrofit our application to fit the ridiculous stronghold carriers have on SMS in the US. While it is almost impossible to run an interesting and profitable SMS business that requires user interactivity via SMS short codes, (unless you are Google or some other conglomerate)... with this new just got more difficult.

Cingular just announced that they will no longer allow alternative payment mechanism (credit card, etc) for any sms based program. This means that companies that want to run a legitimate SMS service where users opt-in, receive text messages and are able to reply via a short code will not b...

Using the email gateway to send multimedia to mobile phones

Anyone out there had any experience getting a response from carriers about commercial use of the mobile email gateway to send multimedia to mobile phones. If you want to send a video to a phone it is clearly possible, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it through the shortcode process (unless you want to wait for premium MMS).
I find it hard to get anyone on the phone at a carrier and I haven't yet found any useful info on any of the development forums.

Info? Thoughts? Comments?

DataPilot and the A900M

(Also posted in the A900 forum...)

I just purchased a A900M and also dl'd Susteen's DataPilot, but...I can't get the phonebool syncing to work. I'm also using the OEM USB cable, so I assume I do not the Susteen USB cable to connect the phone-to-PC (or do I). It also looks like there are some issues listed in the Susteen knowledge base regarding connectivity the A900M. I'm waiting for them to respond to my query.

Does anyone out there have the A900M working correctly with DataPilot?

Does anyone know if there is other similar software available that is dialed in for the A900M?

All I want to do is read-write and sync the phonebook and contacts.

***The OEM USB cable does work okay to link the phone-to-PC as a mass storage device.
