tried this with my phone didnt work any advice please p,m me
Could you be more specific? What problems do you have? You can't get ringtones from WalMart anymore I believe.

Try this:

1. Use Audacity and trim down a mp3 song that you would like to use as a ringtone. Make sure it is either between 300kb-350kb or 30 sec.-35 sec. long. Export it as Mp3.

2. Use Razorlame > Add file > select file you just exported. Go to Lame Options > You shall see a box,
Bitrate: change to 32kbit
Mode: change to Mono

Now Encode it.

3. Find the File and put it on your TF card. It should be in Motorola > shared > audio
MAKE SURE SONG NAME IS BELOW 37 CHARACTERS.

4. Access your TF card through you phone. Go to sounds > find mp3 ringtone > Menu > Send in Message > To 555-555-5555 > OK > OK again

5. When finished go to your Outbox. Select file to play. While playing > Menu > Save > File > phone. Now it should be in your ringtone selection
 
walmart

walmart has switched their files to streaming media i think. so you need to get a new program to get the streaming media. tryi it that way hopefully it works
 
They are asf files hard to copy their are other sites that have the 30sec. mp3 files you can get
 
walmart and getitnow link does not work, download not supported? Guess they figured it out. Ohh well. Anyone now of another place I can get a sample music from. If its sample why do they block us from getting it. Its free right. Then whats the problem???

Sorry man. Really sorry. Desperate.

Dude, why not just do a simple seem edit and then make your own ringtones from any digital music you already have or can get??? I did the seem edit and my E815 is fully enabled, I make all my own ringtones usingg Sony Soundforge. It's really easy and quite simple to do... :2thumbs:
 
Why does every text message I recieve have a question mark at the end of it?

not sure.. what phone/firmware?
 
I finally figured it out how to copy the files from the flash card to the phone, without texting them to yourself.

1. Install the transflash card.
2. Save any mp3 files as mid and put the files on the card.
3. Go to sounds.
4. Switch to storage device to he transflash card you can look at the songs you have on there.
5. Make a new playlist and select 1 song to add to the playlist. It does not matter which one you pick because you won't be using it anyway. So pick something small.
6. Go back to the sounds interface index.
7. Use '0' to highlight or "mark" every mp3/ringtone you want, EXCEPT the playlist file.
8. When you are done marking the files you want, mark the Playlist file DEAD LAST. This is critical, because if you don't do this, you won't get the Copy option.
9. Now select Copy,and all files will copy. It will put all those songs onto the sounds part of the phone's memory, including the playlist.
10. You can delete the playlist from the phone hard drive when you're done.

Yeah baby!!!!! Much better than texting the sound files to yourself, lol...
This worked on a new e815 phone that I just purchased this week.

E815 Headphone Adaptors

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already.

There is no need to buy expensive junky 2.5mm headphones so that you can listen to MP3s on the E815 using the headphone Jack! :lol:

You can use your existing high quality Stereo Headphones.
You simply Need a "2.5mm to 3.5 mm Stereo adaptor".
They are available for as low as $4.95 on the web but the availability is stores is very rare.
I couldn't locate one in Frys or MicroCenter.
Of course they don't want you to buy this simple solution when they can sell you something much more expensive.
BestBuy had one which I bought which consists of a the adaptor and some extra wire which costs $14.95 but honestly you just need the $4.95 adaptor. I can't locate it on their website anymore.
I hope you find this useful. :cool:

Wow that's an absolutely amazing ingenious find if it's true on a unhacked phone!
My phone has already been hacked so I can't run a good test of this.
Can somebody verify this?

It is true. Let me say that I was pissed when I upgraded my v710 to the e815 this past week and I found out that I could not copy my ringtones form my 512K Transflash. The Verizon rep said they did this on purpose.
I knew there had to be a way to copy without hacking my phone. Yes the Internet is a valuable resource, lol!
 
On an off note, in case anyone wants to modify their Openwave bootscreen, just copy brw_openwave_splash from the rootdirectory of your phone via P2K commander or BitPim, rename it with the extension .GIF on your computer, edit it to what you want it to be and save it, then rename it brw_openwave_splash (without the .GIF), and send it back to your phone, then reboot your phone, and viola! You have a new splash screen for your web browser! If you need a starter GIF just let me know, I have one or two I can send to you. Just send me a PM.

I didn't know it had been done by anyone and worked, but I opened it in GIMP and it came up as an image. I'd heard of issues with brw_openwave_splash being corrupted and causing problems so I didn't experiment further. Good to see it works fully.
 
Here's one I just threw together, haven't tried to load it yet.
It's the correct dimensions (176x183 8bpp) but it's 8 kb instead of 4.4.
Think it will hose my browser?

Edit: Works great! It's brw_splash_en on my Bell phone. :D

Need a logo for HoFoWave...
