Ringtone help

AntishowAntishow Registered User regular
So, I just got a cell phone. It's pretty cool, it takes pictures and plays music, and even makes phone calls.

The ringtones though. Jesus Christ. It boggles my mind that they can include like 50 different ringtones in a phone, and they all make my want to jam an icepick in my ear.

So I went online and found a wav file of the MGS codec ring. Paired with my phone and uploaded the file, but it doesn't work. I can see "mgscodec" there on the list of ringtones, but when I select it I just get the default ring.

Is this a file format issue? Should I be using an mp3 or aac file instead of wav? Any ideas?

    Glad you've got it worked out.

    I've got a RAZR, and I've found that the MP3s I have on the phone need to be coded specifically- at a certain Hz range, etc.- in order to be used as ringtones. I've been doing a lot of editing in Goldwave just for that purpose.

    Is that normal, or what?

    I can't find the page now, but somewhere in the support it said that it needed to be encoded at 128kbps and be less than 30 seconds long. I just used iTunes to do it.

    That's weird with the RAZR. I have a SLVR and so far it's used every MP3 I've thrown at it as a ringtone. It's running Cricket firmware, so that could have a hand in it.
