    I've just purchased a LG3280 phone from Tracfone. They said I cannot download ringtones or wallpaper for this phone because it is not a dataphone. Other sources told me I can download polyphonic ringtones and wallpaper using a cable for a LG3300. I'm confused! Does anyone know which is correct?

    I tried to get some ringtones (polyphonic) for my nephew using for this same phone but several failed attempts kept my back against the wall! It is some type of software issues that can only be fixed/changed manually by going into the phones software once it is hooked up to the computer. I gave up after several trys

    The LG3280 can only download ringtones if the carrier allows it. Thus you need to check with your carrier not just the spec sheet. Tracfone does not for this model. The only models that Tracfone allows downloadable ringtones are the LG255, Mot W370, Mot W376. Be sure that the phone you purchase is compatible with the communication protocols in your area. For example, in Bozeman, MT CDMA is prevalent. CDMA is excellent for mountainous terrain. However, These phones are not CDMA. The LG3280 is.

    This information was given to me by Tracfone technical help on 8 17 08.

    Hope This helps

    Tracfone is hard to get ringtones on. Even with the W370, lg 225 and w376 you can only get them from the Tracfone website. They have a web option but you can only go to the Tracfone approved ringtone website. By hacking into the phone you might be able to but you will probably just wipe out your minutes.
