Yes, I just found this out when I got the phone and I was playing with the connection over Bluetooth. I was able to grab pictures of the phone, but I found out that on LG's site that only Verison's 5300 will support MP3 ringtones. The ux-245 (I have this phone, Alltel) and the ax-245 (U.S Cellular) do not support MP3 ringtones. They only support ringtones bought over the phone.

I also tried downloading midi tones to the phone, but when the ringtone was downloaded, it locked into the phone. It also wouldn't accept anymore ringtones. When I removed the ringtone, it still showed up in the media section, and I had to edit the lgsound.dat file on the phone to remove it. When I put the ringtone back on, the phone would not play the tone when a call was made, it played another ringtone. One other thing I tried was converting it to a .qcp file, because the phone saves voice memos in this format. That did not work also. So, if anyone owns a AX-245 on Alltel, or a UX-245 on U.S. Cellular, and has gotten any type of ringtone to work, please post what types and where you put them in the filesystem.
