Ringtones questions!!


Dec 12, 2008, 7:24 PM
Was wondering what format and length i would have to make audio clips for this phone to make them playable as ring-tones. i have tied full mp3's and they could not be applied as a ring-tone. i want to be able to pick a song off my computer and crop out the part i want and transfer it onto my phone so i can use a a ringtone...any help would be great.

You can send files to a cell phone from a computer that is connected to the internet. Just scroll down and fill in all the boxes in the "Send Free SMS" form. I find it very handy.
