    1. find music
    2. right click on file and select save as
    3. save as all file and add .midi to end of name
    ex. austinpowers.midi
    even if it means making it a midi if its a mp3
    4. the mp3 quality sucks and u cant ude it as a ringer so make it a midi
    5. email to phone ( i recommend yahoo mail)
    option a
    6a. save to phone.
    7a. go to media/sounds and choose ur song
    8a. select song a select play
    9a. press menu (center) and push apply as ringtone

    Are you saying my ringers sound horrible?? Lets not forget, these are PHONES and not $10,000 stereo systems here.

    Understand the mp3 ring tones are NOT GOING TO BE CLOSE TO CD QUALITY when played on this phone no matter what. Even if they are 320Kbit encoded MP3's the speaker and "amp" in the phone are the weak links here. Plus you can't expect 40 and 48kbit encoded MP3s to sound anywhere NEAR "CD quality" even out of a really good "home" stereo system.

    I'm not saying my ringers are perfect, but they are the best balance between Size and Sound when playing as a ringer on the phone through its built in speaker!

    Can you post one that you feel sounds EXCELLENT? I'd like to compare.

    Yeah, find the original UNCOPRESSED sound sample you want to use. Rip it from a CD, Movie, TV show, etc yourself. Open it in your favorite audio editor, edit it yourself and save it as an MP3.

    BUT this is NOT MAKING a MIDI file. It is the same as RENAMING it.

    You are NOT converting MP3 to Midi. You are RENAMING.

    There is a BIG difference. CONVERTING an MP3 to Midi would loose all "human voice" or "real sound" and sampled sounds. Consider the 50Cents_InDaClub.mp3 vs 50cents.mid or Better_Off_Alone.mid vs Better_Off_Alone.mp3 on my ringer page. The .MP3 has singing and is the original recording. The .mid is not the original and has no voice. The .MID's were done with a MIDI keyboard. The tones being played back when using the MIDI files as ringers is created by the tone generator on your phone. So assuming a good speaker and accurate tone generator, the Midi files will sound "cleaner."

    MIDI files (musical instrument digital interface) hold just the instrument position number and what note to play type information, they do NOT contain the sound itself. That is why they are so small. Think of it this way... 20 years ago, you could buy a casio keyboard for $99. Unlike today's complex SAMPLING Keyboards, the casio had like 15 or 20 instrument sounds built in. that was all it could play. If you didn't like the "drum" sound, too bad that is all it had. If you wrote your own music and wanted to sample your own sounds (like a clip of your voice) and use that as a note that played when you press keys? you could NOT. Well, that is what Midi is. There are predefined instrument sounds generated by a tone generator only. Because each Midi device can use different tone generator chips, instrument sounds can (and usually will) sound different on each. While the sound position might indicate a guitar sound on both devices for example, on one device it might be Accoustic Guitar, on the other device that sound might be an Electric guitar sound. And an Acoustic guitar on one tone generator chip, might sound different then the Acoustic guitar sound on another Tone generator chip... So MIDI files I have that sounded good with the Correct instruments playing back on my old ORIGINAL ISA Creative Labs SoundBlaster sounded different when played on my SoundBlaster 16ASP with WaveBlaster add-on Midi device, and sounds different from my Soundblaster Live, which sounds different on my brothers Ensoniq ASR-10 sampling keyboard and sounds different when playing on my phones. Heck, even playing the same midi file on my Moto T730 can sound different then my V710.

    Where as MP3 is an actual recording of the sound. The original true wave form sound. It can contain voice, real world sounds, etc. And the same file, played on different devices will sound exactly the same (audio quality of the output device not with standing) because the actual SOUND is stored in the MP3 file.

    SIMPLE....
    Get Sony sound forge 7.0 or better

    edit an mp3 you like and cut out 25sec worth...
    save as mp3 80kbs or 96kbs.. i prefer 96kbs.. save!

    make sure its less that 350kb.. rename the extension to mid and send it to your phone... it sounds really nice!!

    Mark, I got a stupid question.... my husband has a Samsung a650 cellphone through Verizon. Can I email the ringtones to his phone using his vrzpix email address the same way I do to my V710? I am assuming so and he would just need to figure out the proper menu/settings to apply them on his Samsung.

    Thanks.

    Laurie

    Samsung a650 will only play QCP files. You'll have to upload them through a data cable, because the phone isn't pix message capable. It's not really worth it though, because the phone has virtually no memory.

    Not only is it not worth it due to no memory on the phone, but the sound quality isn't that great either.

    I sent my brother's A670 some of my ringers (directly from my phone), even the MIDI ringers sounded like garbage. They were distorted and not loud. It was Horrible.

    I have been trying to get my mp3's on my transflash card as ringtones on my moto e815. I have read all these reviews and have tried renaming the file from a mp3 to a mid. IT DOES NOT WORK!!!! My friend who is a computer person and can hack into anything, says doing something as simple as changing the file name does not work. I dont understand how other people are able to get it to work?!?!?!

    Well... files on the TF card can NOT Be used as ring tones.

    If you want to use the sound file as a Ringtone, it must reside in the phone's memory. PERIOD. No way around this no matter what you do.

    Next... as for renaming to MID... that is for the email trick to work with the V710 (and on occasion the E815)... its not needed if you Seem Edit the phone, and use MPT to put the sound file on the phone. Or if you seem edit the phone and re-enable the phone's ability to copy SOUND files between the TF and the phone's memory, and get the ringtone to the phone's memory that way.

    My friend who is a computer person and can hack into anything, says doing something as simple as changing the file name does not work.
    if you do a little more research you will see that when using the "email trick" (which involves sending an email to [email protected] with the sound file attached)... Verizon's network will sometimes CONVERT MP3's along the way and they will be .QCP (qualcom purevoice files) by the time they get to the phone... and .QCP's can not be used as ring tones! So if you first RENAME the MP3 to .MID, this conversion does NOT take place, and the sound file can be used as a ring tone.

    For reference, see what I put in POST # 13 of this thread.

    For more info... visit my pages... when there, use the navigation links on the left... start with the E815 link, then the Stock Phone Link...

    For the email trick... see the notes towards the bottom 1/2 of my transflash page (no the email trick does NOT require a transflash card, that is just where I happen to put the ways to put ring tones onto the phone WITHOUT using Get-It-Now)

    You are not emailing from the VZWPIX.COM web site... you are sending a "normal email" to your phone at a vzwpix.com address...

    Those do not say to email FROM the VZWPIX.COM web site, and I don't recall seeing any other posts in this thread directing you to send by visiting the VZWPIX.COM web page...

    So... if you do visit and read that... you will see...

(limits... 250K file size, sound files must end with extension .MID even if its an MP3 file, the ringer should not be more than 20 to 25secs). Also works as an email to [email protected] with the file attached.... This will cost $.25 per message. For more info see my Post In This thread, its based on my comments in THIS THREAD, especially Post #24 and Post #37
    Now I know that is a lot of reading... but trust me, if you take the time to slow down, and read it all... You will get it working, and you will be a lot less frustrated.
