This started off when MatrixM was having problems with their website.
Me being the desperately impatient person that I am, I really wanted
to get a wav of my pinball machine onto my phone, and could not wait
for MatrixM any longer. I called Sony, and they said sending wav
files to my T226 phone was impossible, and would not even tell me what
type of files the phone would support. Knowing that MatrixM was
somehow converting these wav files to a format that my phone would
support, I knew it had to be possible, but how they were doing it was
the trick. All of the steps below are going to be geared towards the
Sony Ericsson T226, but should work for just about any phone, except
the fact that the file format will be different depending on the make
and model of the phone.
1. Determine what type of file you need to convert your wav file to:
Groups and message boards are a pretty good way to go. In my case I
ended up having to go to MatrixM and send a dead ringer to my locker.
I then, through the browser on my computer, navigated to the locker
path given to me by matrixm. When you try to go to this page through
Internet Explorer, it will prompt you to open or save the file. Open
it up in notepad and simply look at the very small amount of xml code
for the link to your file.
In this case, the file is Strong530.amr. .amr being the file type
that I needed to convert my .wav files to.
2. Find an appropriate conversion tool to convert your wav files with.
I had read everywhere that Miksoft's wav to amr converter was what
was needed to do this. But after trying it, I found it painful to
have to try and prep the wav file before using the conversion tool,
and the results were often slow and choppy. I was able to find a tool
offered by Nokia that will do all of the work for you. The Nokia
Multimedia Converter 2.0 can be found at
http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/0,,034-63,00.html. There is a small
amount of registering with the website that has to be done prior to
downloading, and they have to email you a key to do the install, but
it is free and relatively painless.
3. Converting the wav: (This is strictly for Sony Ericsson phones
that rely on the amr format.) This is simple. Just open the tool,
find your wav, convert it and save it. You will need to listen to the
wav file however to make sure the bit rate is right. If the bit rate
is wrong, the wav will either be too slow or too fast. You can
preview the amr file after it is converted through Internet Explorer.
I know Quicktime will open the amr file, I am not sure whether Windows
Media will or not. Simply save the file, listen to it, and change the
bit rate in the conversion tool if necessary and re convert.
4. Getting the file to your phone: You will have to have your own
website to do this, so if you don't, you might as well stop now. This
is actually pretty easy. Create a folder in the root of your
website's directory called wap. The name isn't crucial, just easy to
navigate to. Once you have the wap directory in your website, you
need to create a .wml page that you can navigate to. The .wml page
need only have a small amount of code on it to work properly, and here
This is just a page that has a title and one link on it. Mywav.amr
being the file and MyWav being the name of the link that actually
appears in the browser. Provided the mywav.amr file is located in the
wap directory, this will work just fine.
5. You can now test your site by navigating to the file directly
through Internet Explorer. For example:
www.mywebsite.com/wap/mywav.amr .. If this works, you can simply
navigate to the .wml page you created and click the link. Your phone
should then download the file. After which it is as simple as adding
the files to the wap directory you want to download and adding a line
to your .wml page referring to the file. Just copying the href line
above and changing the filename and link name to refer to your other
files works great. If you cannot directly access the file from your
Internet Explorer by entering in www.mywebsite.com/wap/mywav.amr ,
there is one more step you will have to take
6. You need to add a MIME type that refers to the type of file you are
linking to. You can call your ISP and have them do this, (Chances are
they already have though) Or if you have your own server, you can do
it yourself. Go to IIS in your services and applications on the
server, right click and go to the properties of it, then to MIME Types
… and an entry for .amr with a type of audio/amr. You will probably
have to reboot your server after this.
After that is all said and done, you can convert and download your
heart out. No more $1.00 for each ringtone you want to add to your
phone, and no more waiting 3 weeks for them to convert the file for
you only to have them tell you it is copyrighted and not do it at all.
If your phone supports Polyphonic ringers, simply put a .mid file up
on your server and change the link to refer to it instead. Pictures
