Guys, please help me out here. i just tried to send an email with mp3 file (i was sending it as an attachment) to my phone. I couldnt do it-the file is not downloadable. several months ago it was working yet. i called Verizon and they told me that they blocked it but if i get expansion card (which of course i dont have) i will be able to receive and download mp3 file. the file i try to get over to my phone is 300kb, the available memory (which is embeded into the phone) 3MB. Please tell me the way to get mp3 files to my phone!Thanks a lot!

Verizon does not recognize mp3 attachments even though your phone does. So here's what you do:
You rename the file from *.mp3 to *.mid (MIDI format). Then you e-mail it to your phone and it will work like a charm. Remember Verizon has a restriction of about 300KB per e-mail, so make sure your songs are below that.

Good Luck.

this method no longer works either. I have tried many times and I just get a message that says unable to download. I used to do it this way all the time.

Is the only way to transfer ringtones/mp3's is to get the transflash card?

If you cannot attach to a txt msg any longer then I would say yes. Although, with the latest software version on the v710 they have disabled the Copy feature from T-Flash->Phone. You will need a data cable to unlock this feature.

Excuse what may be an obvious question to the more technically inclined, but attach a data cable where? I have a trans-flash card in my phone and a USB card reader for my computer. Can you clarify?

The data cable connects to the port on the bottom of your phone. Similar to how the phone charger does the data cable takes up the entire port on the bottom.

Thanks.
I've seen these cables on ebay for about $10. Will the phone accept MP3 for ring tone? or does it want MID?
It can't be that simple can it? What am I missing? Will Verizon block it somehow?
Thanks again for your help.

The email procedure still works. You must create and send the email from a non-email client (NOT Outlook, etc.) but from a web based service like yahoo or gmail.

I created an MP3 on my PC and transferred it to a flashcard via a card reader. I put the flash card in the phone and e-mailed from the phone to the phone. The MP3 is in the phone...I can play it on the phone...how do I set it as a ringtone? Has anybody succeeded at this with Verizon?

This is what worked for me...you create a mp3 ringtone on your computer of say 30 seconds. The file can't be too big or Verizon will not allow it to your phone. Once you have created the ringtone save it to your computer say to your desktop. Then go to funformobile.com and upload the ringtone to your phone. It will come in in a message and your V710 will ask you if you want to save it as a ringtone. Good luck.

Funformobile.com is the ticket right now-

Record audio, rip to 96kb mono MP3 (my 22 second clip went to about 240kb), then use funformobile.com for the rest. I tried txt'ing through gmail and the file didn't get through.

Does anyone know if US Cellular recognizes mp3 files. I would like to download my mp3 file but havent had success. I tried the different ways the Verizon customers did to download files but it did not work. Please Help!!!!!

Download this program called Audacity and it lame library which it is actually called lame to connect to your music folder to export your mp3's as ringtones. If you have a USB cable and a Micro SD Memory card you can just connect and drag and drop and it works perfectly. I do it all the time for my Motorola RIZR Z3 and I have like 30 ringtones from it and its free and unlimited without any fees at all. Very Happy
