www.myxer.com is a great website for getting ringtones for your phone.

I have used this site for several months to make my ringtones, both on my ROKR phone last year and now on the LG env2 this year:
I renamed the file RTsongsnameperformer. If you have a USB clip for the MicroSD card you copy the song to the sound folder (you have to save some things from the phone to create the folders on the MicroSD card for the first time it is used, i.e., a picture).
Message to your phone number, scroll down to attach the sound file, and send. You will see the messange send and then you will see a message coming in pretty fast. You can send the ringtone to someone else too and it will be charged as a picture text/message .25 (or free for unlimited text plans). So I believe it will cost .25 x 2 to send and receive. .50 per ringtone
You are charged 1.99 for each megabyte you transfer (pages you browse), till you exceed the 1MB, then add 1.99 for ea additional MB.
My 5 songs were .25 x 5 (x2 send & receive) + 1.99. I don't have the media package or unlimited text. I had 1.99 charged the first time I turned on my phone and logged onto the internet (browse). Always happens when you first get a new phone, you tend to hit buttons by accident.
Under $5.00 for my RTs, only used .22 MB so far this month. I like that I can make any Ringtones I want from my selection of music. If you check the site above, cellsea.com, there are tons of other ringtones you can download to your PC, then copy to your MicroSD card FREE!
Ok, what I want to do is to, just like on my original EnV and 8300, is to have my custom ringtones to stay on the MicroSD card, yet the phone to recognize them and used them as ringtones.
I am using the latest version of BitPim (1.0.6) and doing everything via Bluetooth.
For some reason, my 8350, I cannot do this. Is this possible with the EnV-2?? If it is still possible with the EnV-2, then I am going to get my girlfriend to take her 8350 back and get that one because she doesn't care which one she has, just wants one that she can have custom ringtones on.
I am using the SD card from her 8300 and i even re-formatted it using the cellphone and put all of her stuff back onto it, including a folder called "ringers" which is how you once were able to get the phone to recognize that you had ringtones on the SD card.
Any help would be great. Thank you.
i have the lg keybo 9100 and it doesn't give me the option of saving it as a ringtone..only sounds.any other ideas?
After the enV and 8300, all new LGs had that feature gutted from their firmware. No more ringtones on removable storage. You will HAVE to use Bitpim to access the filesystem via microusb (for the env2) or the proprietary cable for the 8350. Both support bluetooth but the last time I tried, I only got Bitpim to read the env2's filesystem through bluetooth, not the 8350.Originally Posted by Draxxis

The Keybo has a different firmware than the VX9100 does. Different firmware means different features/limitations. This is a Verizon thread. I suggest asking in the Telus forum but if you search the board more, I have helped others with the Keybo with getting ringtones into the filesystem using Bitpim.Originally Posted by Dirty-D
You can save under sounds and then send a text to your phone number, attach the sound file from your memory card on your phone and send. When you open the text you will hear the sound file and you save the ringtone (which you can rename and lock in your ringtones to save). I like the website cellsea.com because there are many already made ringtones or songs you can edit then save them onto your computer. Copy that file from your computer onto your MicroSD card under sounds to send by text to yourself to make ringtones. If you have a texting plan you won't pay any extra to send then receive the text file with sound file attached from your phone's memory card. If you don't have a texting plan, it will cost .25 x 2 messages = .50 per ringtone (text message with sound), 1 sent and 1 received. Keep the ringtone memory size small, 30 seconds or less, or else the text may use more MB space and you can't store the ringtone. The MB usage per month is 1.99 per 1MB used, which is another cost factor unless you have unlimited or a some text/data plan on your phone.Originally Posted by Dirty-D
If you have a USB cable (you can purchase from eforcity via buy.com for this phone with shipping for under $9) you can upload ringtones using the downloaded BITPIM software at no charge.

I believe the audio files are 96kbps / 48Hz once they arrive onto your phone.
I am also trying to get my ringtones on my Env 2 however I have a little bit different question. I have my phone fully flashed to cricket and cricket compresses their messages so when I text the ringtones to my phone it muffles the ringtone and makes it much quieter and sounds really bad. I want them to sound like they sound from the micro sd card. I have rhaposdy installed on my comp because I thought it would give me the option to put the ringtone in the ringtone folder but its not giving me the option. I do not want to pay for extra software that I will just use one or two times. Anyone know how I can get the ringtones on my phone without them sounding horrible? Please help. I will pay you if you can succesfully help me get them on for free.
