Wednesday I got a new Pantech Hotshot from Verizon. I like it pretty well (But hey, this is actually my first cellphone. xD)
But I do have a bit of a problem with it. I want to change the ringtone to something other than the few preloaded ringtones (Which are a little obnoxious and corny, IMO. lol)
I've been making lots of searches about it, but I haven't found a good solution.
One of the recommended ways to have different ringtones is to send yourself a "photo message" and press the "More" button and then "Save as Ringtone". I've tried sending a "photo message" to myself, but the sending always fails. Or, at least, it says it fails. I am able to open up the message I tried sending, but when I click "More" I don't get a "Save as Ringtone" option.
I'd really like to be able to use my own MP3 files as a ringtone, but so far nothing has worked.
There isn't any folder for ringtones on the mini SD card, either.
I just got this phone as a warranty exchange for another I had and did the same thing. I used my email to send a message to "your-phone-number-here"@vzwpix.com and attached an MP3 file. When you receive it you get the option to save it as a ringtone and assign it. It will walk you through the process. Quite easy. I did shorten my MP3 as I saw fit so it wasn't the full song. Doesn't have to be a song of course.
Also, this shouldn't impact this process but check your software version on your phone. Look at the last section. Mine is ".235". I found out that ".236" has been rolled out. This only occurs as OTA (over the air) and it has useful updates. I'm waiting on it myself but know there are improvements for speed of the touch screen, bluetooth and a few other fixes.
What size must the Mp3 file be in order for the Pantech Hotshot to recognize it and use it as a ringtone?
I know how to picture text and attach the file to it. I just need the size of the file limitations.
Does anyone know?
