Sending PIX and SONGS to my phone via email...


Jun 11, 2006, 1:16 PM
I recently learned that I can email pictures to my phone using pictures I have stored on my computer...using the Get Pix and Flix website I can upload the pics and send them to my phone for FREE...it's great.

Now I'm trying to do the same thing with songs, but most of the songs I have are:

1) too large - the site will only upload to a certain size, and

2) MP3 format - the site will only upload audio files that are .wav or .midi or .amp

So, can someone tell me how to convert mp3 files to wav or midi files?

And, how do I compress the files?

Thank so much!

I just need to add a couple of things:

I'm on the Verizon network and

I have checked out Howards Forum...I was able to change the file type to a midi file, but the Verizon site still says it cannot upload it because it's an invalid file type.

Why why why???

Ok, after 3 hours I figured out how to change the file from an mp3 to a wav and/or midi file.

I also figured out with Nero how to crop the song.

I don't know how you crop audio files but change your file name extension to ".mid" and NOT ".midi." That should do it I think. I did this for a ringtone.

Now as for using Pix and Flix, be careful my friend. Yes, it is free to send pictures and sounds from your computer to your phone. BUT, it costs 25 cents for your phone to RECEIVE the file! That's why Verizon disabled the multimedia function in Mobile Phone Tools and OBEX for bluetooth file transfer. It forces us end users to pay a quarter each time.

Good luck.

I tried all file extensions.

wav, mid, midi

none of them work.

As for the $.25, I was told if I'm using Verizon dsl with a Verizon email address, there should be no charge to and from my phone...we'll see...I'll check my bill

Sorry, I'm out of ideas regarding the file extensions. Please let us know if you get charged or not for sending stuff to your phone.

One thing you could do that just popped in my head is post your question over at HoFo since your search queries didn't help.

Just called Verizon and they told me I would be charged.
I let the rep know that someone in the Verizon store told me otherwise.
The phone rep said it used to be that way (ha), but now there would be no charge only if you had the complete IN package - not exactly sure what that is and I don't much care.
So I told him I should be credited for the ones I sent since I was given false information.
He said ok - so we'll see.

I'm not much into the whole software thing and hacking, but at these prices Verizon really leaves you no other option.

Free 30 sec ringtones-mp3

I dont know if you all know about this 30 sec mp3 free music clip trick or not, but here it is. I can not take credit for this, I actually found it on another forum and think its worth spreading.
For free 30 sec mp3 music:
-Go to dogpile.com, Walmart.com, other free music, search under Music, do any kind of specific search like sound effects or broad search like rock.
-Click on any album and scroll down, walmart allows you to listen to 30 seconds of almost every song on every album.
-To listen first just left click on the side on the song where it says "mp3 audio" winamp will pop up and allow you to hear it.
-If you like it than right click on the "mp3 audio"...and sav...

Thanks so much for posting this reply.

I tried going to walmart.com and amazon.com, both of which allow you to sample 30 seconds of songs on an CD.

My Windows Media Player opened up, but there is no way to save it.

I did something (not even sure what) and saved it to my playlist, but it was a wpl file and when I changed the extension to mid or wav, it would no longer play.

Those sites don't have anything that says play "mp3 audio"...basically it's just an icon next to the song that allows you to listen to it.

I could be missing something...that's totally possible...

Let me know if I'm missing something.

Thanks so much.

No what happened is that Walmart caught on to the gimmick. Use the site Dogpile.com, and do an audio search for whatever you want. When you find what you want after hearing it, right click it and save it to your music folder...as you save it to the folder change the end to .MID This should help.

No luck...I found a clip of the song, opened it, saved it as a mid file.
But when I tried to upload it to Pix place, it says it' an ivalid file type even though Pix place states:
You may upload media files from your PC, then use those media items in messages that you compose and send.
PIX Place supports media with the following file extensions:
Images: .JPG, .GIF, .WBMP, .BMP, .PNG
Audio: .AMR, .QCP, .WAV, .MIDI
Video: .3GP, .3G2 _________________________________________

And if I email it to my phone not using Pix place, my phone gets the email but I can't open it...the phone won't receive the file.
It's the same error I got originally 3 days ago when I started this process.
