Urg- yet another set of questions on music & ringtones

🙄 Sorry, gang- I have read through quite a bit of the forum, but I'm still left with just a few questions.

(Note: I have the phone, and a transflash card)

1. Should I opt to buy the music kit from Verizon, am I right in assuming that I will then be able to transfer my music files (one way or another) onto my phone to use as ringtones? I have no use for my phone being a standalone mp3 player or something, I just want to have ringtones!

2. In the above case, will it be the whole song, or would I be forced to have 30 second clips?

3. Alternitively, if I pot to just buy a cable and download the drivers, what is the answer to those questions as well?

4. Is there any major disadvantage to buying the cable/downloading the dri...

The same sound files can be used for alerts and such, so yes it is possible to have them longer.

I have ring tones and games sitting on my computer to put on my phone but I'm having problems finding the drivers. I spoke to my phone server who says there isn't any drivers to take the information off my computer & put in onto my phone. I have the SCH-A950 but I only see drivers for 940, 970 etc. Can this actually be done or am I wasting my time? Help Thanks Kim

People have posted on http://www.howardforums.com/ that the SCH-A970 driver works with this phone.
