MP3 Ringtones on V810!
First convert a mp3 to wav and edit which part of the song you would like to use as your ringer. I don't make my clips much more than 15 seconds.
Then convert the edited wav back to mp3 with these specifications:32 kbps (constant bitrate) / 22.05 kHz sampling rate / Mono. The file size should be less than 120 kb's. There are plenty of programs out there that will work, I just used Winamp.
Now just rename the ".mp3" extension to ".mid". Now the catch. You will still have to email the mid file as an attachment to your phone, so you have to have MMS with USCC. Just extract the mid file from you message, and apply it as your ring tone.
I tried making another ringtone last night, and I could not get past the 95% thing at all. I tried to retrieve the message around my house, outside the house, at work even in my car, and nothing worked. The file I was trying to send was 79 kb's. I noticed all the ringtones I made myself were under 70 kb's and worked on the first or second retrieval attempts. I reduced the file size to under 70 kb's by changing the bit rate down to 24kbps, and this time it worked on the first attempt. I could have shortened the file, but I didn't want to, and I can't tell the difference between the 2 bit rates. The specifications I got were from here:

Do I have to be signed up for EasyEdge to get this working, or ???
Thanks in advance for any help!
However, not all sound files you make will work with your phone. This topic has been discussed at great length in the USCC thread on Howard Forums. Some of the tricks have been posted here, but even then, not all ringtones you convert/make will work. Its sort of trial and error.
I've been away for awhile and just noticed your post. Here's how it works.
If you have downloaded Razorlame, make sure you also download the lame.exe.
This actually does all the work, where razorlame is just a front-end for it. Extract the lame zip folder to the same folder where razorlame is located.(probably razorlame115)
Now open up RazoLame and go to LAME Options. Under the General tab, set the bitrate to 32 kbit, and Mode is set to mono. I don't mess with the settings in the other tabs. Now you should be able to add your edited wav file and hit Encode. This will create a mp3 in the same directory your edited wav file is saved.
Now to get this to your phone, change the "....
