getting ringtones texted to Blackberry from another Verizon phone

by blackbelt4    Aug 21, 2008, 4:16 PM

I'm hoping some of you Blackberry folks can help me on this one....
I have an out of state relative that has a Blackberry (not sure which model, but will check if necessary). I have tons of custom made ringtones I made, and some that I want to send to him. I have the LG Voyager phone and a texting plan (no Internet, email. etc., and do not plan to add, just for this). When I try to text him a ringtone, sending it as a "picture message", with the ringtone included as a "SOUND", it won't allow him to get it. He's saying it asking him to go online to the (?) Verizon website to even get these messages. I DO know that any text with a ringtone has to be a "picture message" from my end, but that might be creating a problem for the Blackberry on his end???

I want to be able to text these to him (he has both email, Internet plan), without it becoming a hassle. We both have micro-SD chips for our phone.
With my phone, I can take a ringtone I made off my computer, using my (USB port) card reader and micro-SD, then text that ringtone TO my OWN cell phone number, FROM my OWN cell phone (by-passing Verizons' crippling of my phone), open up the text message, and then save it "as a ringtone". It works great for most phones.

So I'm kinda flying blind here (not knowing how Blackberrys work). I need someone to tell me how we can make this fly, based on what we both ALREADY have on our phones. I don't want to have to add anything extra, plan-wise (thereby defeating the whole idea of making all these great, FREE ringtones).

Can you help us out ?? Thanks in advance. I'm a first time poster over here in Blackberry-Land.
