I've had good success with Ventones.
I have a samsung a886 and this does not work. phone does not recognize dm files.
is there a way to apply digital rights and keep mp3 format?
mp3 ringtones are a feature of this phone and if I have to pay to flash or debrand this phone for it to work the way advertised I will take rogers to small claims court and spam the crap out of it on the net.
why are there not more people jumping mad about this?
I have 600gb of media and I am not going to be forced into buying some crappy katy perry song for a ringtone.
this is extortion. in fact I don`t think what they are doing (ie crippling MY hardware) is even LEGAL?
will keep you posted
I tried that method on my Samsung SGH-A256 "Hype" phone, and it didn't work. I don't have a way to directly connect my phone to my computer, so I transferred the ringtone over the Net to my phone.
Just ran it through my LG Neon on Fido(Same thing). For combined delivery it can detect the file in external memory, in both the file manager and the alarm clock sound options on the phone, however it can't use/play the file; on the alarm clock it will say "Only DRM file is available", same as regular mp3's; trying to set as a ringtone is not an option. On internal memory the .dm file doesn't show up.
Ran it with forward-lock and the file doesn't even show up on external memory.
Just a heads up for anyone planning to try it with a Neon.
Also tried converting the file through Daniusoft Music Converter, suggested elsewhere, as both wma. and another mp3. Doens't work either.
I am having the same issue with my new LG Xenon...I cannot set any sounds i add to my phone, as Ringtunes...
Some Motorola phones have a USB port that you can hook up and put small MP3's on it. I have the W370 and have me saying "Bring Bring" on it as my ringtone
I am very sorry to say it but this didn't work for me. I am with LG Shine TU720 from Rogers. The thing that works is a program called bitpim. There is a video in youtube with explanation. I hope this is not considered spam .
I'm having the same problem. I couldn't get it to work with my Samsung SGH-A436, and nothing seems to work on my new LG Neon either. It won't let you set anything as a ringtone. I've tried midi, mp3, mp4, m4a, wma, wav, etc. and it just keeps giving me an error saying "Only DRM File is Available."
However, I believe Rogers must use some standard form of DRM protection, because you can also get ringtones through MTV, and a couple of other services. On the Rogers Mall, there's a link to "Get More Ringtones" and links to I think 3 other sites that you can buy tones from and use, so maybe we just need to figure out the exact settings to use with that DRM packer program to get them to work. I do know the files have to have an mp3 extension. My LG phone doesn't recognize dm files.
I just got the new samsung rugby A836, I followed the steps you gave and unfortunatly it didn't work so I guess its not for my phone although I'm sure there's gotta be another way...I tried compressing, converting and now DRM and nothing works...nothing nothing...!!!!
