    Making ringtones?

    Any good PC apps to make ringtones... that will work?

    I just got a new phone Sumsung SGH-A886. Kinda low end stuff, but I tried to put in a couple MP3s and it didn't work. Of course the service provider gives me the rote answer that they don't know what could be the problem but it's best to purchase the ringtones off their site. grrrr... Money grabbing bastards!

    Anyways... suggestions?

    Wish I could help... What OS is it using? WinMo or a Samsung specific?

    I did find this.. might help, might not.

    So basically > go into profiles > edit the caller ringtones > edit video caller ringtone [1 > edit text message ringtones > repeat for ALL other profiles [2 > Select profile you want to use > Have fun!

    [1 - this is optional but I find the caller and video caller options are pointless and should be the same

    [2 - The other profiles will contain the same shitty ringtones the phone provides, so you might want to change them aswell

    really depends on the phone, some phones will work with just an mp3; others require 3ggp file formats, which there are tons of converters for...

    My old Samsung t509 from like 5 years ago used mmf files which were basically midi files but with some encoding on them so they couldn't be played back on my pc without Samsung's desktop PC software (which even though it was a piece of crap would let you convert pictures to wallpaper sized images and also 30 second mp3 files to their crappy mmf file type to set as ringtones). Software was called something like Samsung PC Studio.

    There is also this ringtonecoverter app but I have no idea how limited the free trial is.

    Do you have a data plan? I use Free Ringtones from Phonezoo: Make and Download Free Ringtones, Free Mobile Wallpaper and Play Free Games You can edit the mp3 then it creates the file and they send it to your phone. As long as you can download data and have texting, it works no problem.

    Zedge.net

    Hundreds of thousands of ringtones...almost any you could think of. From TF2 sfx to any movie in existence. And if you sign up they allow you to upload, chop and edit ringtones in several formats AFAIK.

    I'd liked to be useless and annoying here, and just say get a new phone.


    But, perhaps it's just the format. Even if you get a ringtone maker, it would have to be compatible with your phone.
