    Straight Talk LG 290c Ringtones

    Does anyone know if the LG 290C from straight talk will allow me to upload and mp3 clip and use it as a ring tone. (bluetooth or email or otherwise)

    I know the space is limited (like 20mb) which is fine, but I don't want to be in the same place as my Net10 Moto. They will allow you to buy a "realtone" via the website, but won't allow an uploaded file to be used as a ringtone.

    I know the Samsung they offer will, but I'm looking at the 290c as a cheaper option for my daughter.

    I had the LG290 and tried everything to get an mp3 to work but nothing I tried did. I tried downloading some from mobile9 onto the phone and got a message saying the phone didn't recognize that file type. Tried sending via bluetooth and MMS to no avail. I finally returned the phone for the Samsung. I liked the LG a lot but in the end couldn't live without expandable memory and my mp3's. Now I can use full songs for my ringtones, not to mention being able to get my pics off the phone at their true size without using MMS.

    Hope that helps some and your daughter gets a phone she's happy with.

    I have the tracfone version of the 290c. I had no trouble sending a very short MP3 clip (29 seconds and about 400k) to the phone and using it as a ringtone. I emailed it to ##########@mypixmessages.com

    I was able to send mp3s to my 290c using ForkLift on the Mac or BlueSoliel on Windows.

    Transfering Files to Straight Talk LG 290C

    Another way to do it for free is to email them to your own web based email account, then check your email with the phone. It will give you the option to save/open the attachment.

    I've helped a friend who isn't very tech savy do this. It's very easy, because you're just checking you web based email, (in this case it was Yahoo).
