Open your windows media sound recorder….start , programs , accessories, entertainment (xp) sound recorder…
Once open, go to file, properties, click convert now, and change ATTRIBUTES to “24.000 kHz, 8 Bit, Stereo” ( it has to be this quality or else playback is choppy and sucks) click ok.. now youre sound recorder is ready.
Your are gonna have to set up your sound to record the music youre trying to copy, so to do that, you open your sound settings ( the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner) if you don’t have one click Start, Settings,Control Panel, Sounds and Audio, and check place icon in the task bar.. this will make it easier to access… Now double click on the speaker icon, click on Options, Properties and select Recording.. Check Wave/MP3 if you have it, or Master. This will tell the computer to listen for the music when youre creating the sound file. Now your recorder is ready to record any MP3 you play on your system…
Most Ringtones are only gonna be 20-30 seconds max, so remember not to try to record the entire song… just your favorite lil clip of it… J
Start Playing the song… click the Red Record button on the sound recorder to start recording, it might minimize so just pop it up to see it..after you have recorded 20-30 second clip, click stop, playback if you want. And when youre finished, file, save as , name it, and remember where youre saving it to…
It will be saved as a .WAV file of course..
Open up your Audio Converter program and add the file to the list. Make sure you check WAV so it knows what to look for.. once you add it… click on setup, setup parameters, click on the mp3 format “SET” button.

Now Start your bitpim program…. Since bitpim is set to auto detect, don’t freak out if it takes a few seconds, it will find the phone and set the port and speed .. just be patient..
Open up your windows explorer (right click mouse over start and select Explore , check to see if you can see and change the file extension, to do this click on Tools, Folder options, uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types”
Now click on local Disk (c Find the mp3 file you converted … right click on it. And change the file extension to .qcp
( rock.mp3 to rock.qcp )
it will tell you that youre changing the extension and it may become unstable, its okay…don’t worry.. this is the file extension that the phone understands as well as bitpim..
once that’s done, close that down..Back to Bit Pim.. click the ringer tab…Click ADD
and select the file you just changed…
it will add it to the list… when you have done this…click the Data button on Bitpim and select , Send to Phone. A Send Data To Phone box will appear.. select Ringtone and check Add…. Once you click ok, bitpim will connect to the phone and send the ringtone you created TO your phone, let it finish it can take from 20seconds to 1 minute to upload… once its done it will say ready in the bottom left hand corner.
Walla!! The ringtone YOU created is on your phone.. To check it…go to Menu, 7-2 and see the ringtone there, once selected, it should play for you… Yeehaw!! Set it as your ringtone.. now when you receive calls, the ringtone you made will rock the house..
Keep in mind, these phones are not mp3 players, and so take it easy and try not to outdo yourself or the phone and put wholesongs, or change the settings that I have given..ive tried higher quality and it would play choppy, or not at all.. ive tried other formats and they didn’t work at all, and ive tried lower quality and they just plain sucked.. if you have any questions.. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org id like to help if I can..
