Get an mp3 file and change the .mp3 to .qcp then email that file to email@example.com then open the attachment on your phone and set as alarm. I'm not sure but I don't think you can use long song files. I tried sending myself a 44 second ringer and it wouldn't work, but then I tried a 26 second ringer and it worked. Then again something else could have been the problem I just don't care enough to look into it more.
I just did what TheRickNicholas said to do and it worked! Thanks TheRickNicholas!! The default alarm tones were driving me crazy. It was either too loud and it would startle me (not how I'd like to be woken up) or it was too soft that I couldn't wake up to it.
You're welcome everyone, but I just got this info from the ringtone thread in this forum and figured out that it works for the alarm.

Sorry don't quite understand what you mean. Do you just want an mp3 for your ringtone when people call you? If so that same method works or you can change the .mp3 to .3g2 and put it in the same folder as the one your phone saves pictures to then go to settings-ringers-incoming calls and change it to the .3g2.
I COPIED THIS FROM SOMEONE ELSE BUT IT WORKED FOR ME:
1) make sure you have the sd card on the phone
2) connect phone to computer via usb
3) You will see the DCIM folder on your computer.
4) Create another folder outside of DCIM (root). I named mine RINGTONES (any can be used).
5) copy mp3 or midi files to that folder.
6) rename all files to 3g2 extension.
7) Hit backspace on the phone to make sure it disconnected safely from computer.
8) On the menu pf the phone...
9) Click Home-> Main Menu -> Tools -> Mass Storage -> File Manager ->
10) Select the folder you just created and the file you wish to use.
11) Click "More" -> Assign -> Incoming Calls ->
