Ok...ill admit, im preety dumb when it comes to cell phones and their features. I was wondering if someone out there could do me a huge favor and fill me in clearly on how to use the MP3 feature using the transflash card. And if poosible, from there turning them into ringtones, I have itunes if that makes a differnence. And at the risk of sounding dumber, what is the exact name of the card, that way i can get it at best buy without looking around for an hour, thanx a lot in advance.....

I believe that all Samsung phones use TransFlash memory cards as opposed to LG which uses mini SD cards. Two different types of formats for cards. Once you have you music uploaded onto your TransFlash card, I believe that all you have to do is with the phone in the closed position, press and hol.d the play button down for a few seconds until it starts loading up the music and then highlight the song you want to play wiht the jog dial and hit play again and it'll play that song for you. Hope this helps.

After you get your card you will need a transflash card reader. You can pick one up for around $15-$30. After you get the reader plug it into a usb port on your PC/Mac then plug in the flash card. After that it will show up like a hard drive on your PC/Mac. All you have to do now is drag and drop the music you want on your phone to the card. If you bought music from the itunes music store that won't work because they are not MP3's. Or if you uploaded all of your music using ITunes and you didn't change the default ripper to MP3 they won't work either because they are also not mp3's. If you want to find all of the mp3's on your computer do a search for all files for .mp3 this will give you a list of what you got that will work on your ...

You want to make sure the type of card you get is "Transflash," as the previous poster says, NOT mini SD. The Transflash should the be tiniest one of the bunch, if that helps. Good idea is to go to Circuit City or Best Buy, where they have a Verizon rep on site.. or just to Verizon as they sell 'em now.

One thing about iTunes-- you'll have to right-click each song first and convert it to MP3 format before transferring them. iTunes saves them as a 'level 4' or something of that nature.

Finally, currently you cannot use MP3's as ringtones. It sucks, but hopes are that a software update will let that be possible soon.

Also, a helpful tip... Put the card in the phone before putting it in the card reader if the card is new. It should automatically format it for you, generating MY_MP3S, MY_PIX, MY_FLIX, and MY_SOUNDS folders (may vary depending on model).

Then you just load .mp3's into MY_MP3S, images into MY_PIX (.jpg, .gif, etc), movies into MY_FLIX (.3gp, .3g2), and ringtones/alerts into MY_SOUNDS (.qcp, .mid).
