Audio "Failure"?? for ringtone

Hi guys

so I have this phone and i love it. I put a few ringtones on there (mp3s) and they worked great until one day I tried going into the "Audio" section, went to one of the ringtones and when I tried to play it it shows "Failure". I went to the other ones and their all failure as well. So I dunno how it all of a sudden one day not work but yet my default ringtones do work..Can anyone help?

MENU set up

I just got this phone and so far I don't think I like it. The side buttons are a pain, even though I lock them. I'm used to the Nokia phones. Anyway, I can't find a way to set the MENU as a list, rather than a grid with the icons. Is there a way to do this?

Djo you still like this phone?

Thinking of getting the D407. If you have had this phone for several months, do you still like it or are you ready to trade it in already? Most concerned about reception including dropped calls, durability, convenience, and just fun to use. Also, tell me if there is something that you really hate...

Voice record to ringtone

Does anyone know if the D407 can assign a recorded voice as a ring tone or caller ID ring tone? I tried but get the message "Not Allowed". If it is possible, is there a setting in the phone I need to change to make this feature work?
I know other phones have this feature but it seems this one does not.

i have a couple questions, dont know if they've been answered.

does this phone have a recorder?
if so, if you record a part of a song, can you set it as a distinct ringtone?
How does you use the bluetooth to get ringtones for free? i read someone saying you could.

Mp3 Ringtones

Just bought this phone. I really like it so far, but I thought I would make everyone aware of its mp3 ringtone feature. I bought the USB cable to put the ringtones on the device, since it says it supports MP3. This is in fact the case, but the file has to be 300kB or less! Using the samsung software (downloadable from their webpage, also appears to support bluetooth connections) I was able to successfully down-sample several normal mp3s in to 30 second mono, 80kbps, 32000 sample rate mp3s to fit in this size constraint. They still sound decent enough, especially for a ringer. And they're pretty loud. Anyway, just letting everyone know.

Can We Get A Little Seperation Please!!

Just so everyone knows, the Samsung D347 is the replacement for the d357. It keeps the same color scene, but it adds a slicker design. The D407 adds a vga camera and is charcoal and black.

Few questions.

I'm looking to upgrade at some point.

How loud is the ring at its loudest setting? Reason why I ask is cause I have an LG 4050. It's highest setting isn't that loud. It's strange, it'll ring very low at first, then get louder on each ring until it gets to its loudest. Then usually by then its too late.

How is the reception?
My LG used to be great, always 5 bars or 4. Sometimes 3 at is lowest (from home). right now, ever since a few months ago the highest it'll get is 3. Rarely 4, and if it does it'll jump back down to 2 or 1. Sometimes while i'm on a call I lose all reception and drop the call. This never happened until 2 years after I get the phone! Any idea whats up? Think Cingular took down some towers or is my phone bu...

T9 Dictionary

This is the first time I own a Samsung phone and I have been having problems with adding words to the T9 Dictionary; Words like "Mwah" I can't type in the phone cause it cuts off at "My" and if I use the Add feature, It never recognizes the word when I try again. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Thnx Confused
