Oi, I'm frustrated trying to figure this out! I have two brand new phones, an LG enV3 and a Samsung Alias 2. We want to make our own ringtones or use ones we've downloaded from the internet. I've found a few ways to supposingly do this, but we aren't having any luck. I'll give details, please help us figure it out! We have 2 microSD cards from previous Samsung phones, we can listen to music and access pictures still, so I don't know if they need formatted for use now. I've noticed that my ringtones for the LG enV3 purchased from Verizon are in .mid format, and my husband's are in .aac for his Samsung Alias 2. We have both a Mac and PC, though I'm understanding that LG doesn't work with Mac. Our ringtones are currently in .mp3 format.
1) Do we need to change formats for our phones from .mp3 to another format?
2) How do we get the ringtones from our PC to our phones?
3) How can I get my sync cable to work with my phone, I've tried following the instructions from another thread and it's not working.
I have a question. Why must it such a low bitrate? 96 KBps?? That's like AM radio quality. Even the ones you buy online are higher than that aren't they? & why only 400 KB's? They claim you can E-mail vids through these things, but a vid smaller than 400 Kb's would be too small to see, & too short to even bother watching/sending.
I had a Samsung Juke prior to getting the ENV3 last week, & I made my own ringtone on my system, & tried to E-mail it to myself, & I got a msg back from Verizon's server saying the file was too large, & it was just under 1 MB! But, the file was not converted to anything as you suggested might happen. It just never came through at all!
So, my question is how strict must the overall file sze in KB's be for the ENV3? & also the bitrate too? Wouldn't 128 work ok too?
I will try it & see for myself, I guess.
