OK, I finally managed to upload some mp3 ringers to my Kyocera Slider SE47 (Verizon). I used Bitpim .7 test 9 for Windows. The Mac version really doesn't work, at least I had no luck with it.
Apparently the only directory on the phone that seems usable to put ringers in is the user/sounds/ringers. I uploaded some small mp3 in the format that has been explained 16kHz/24kbps/mono. The mp3 ringers only ring once when my phone is called. Perhaps midi files repeat as a ringer as they should until the call is answered. Anyone have any insight to this phenomenon/problem?
Also, question for anyone...the MySounds folder, what the hell are those sounds for? I can't assign them or delete them. ANd there are (empty) slots, but can't seem to figure out what to do with them or how to get sounds in that section.
