I found on the net a solution to the Vodafone debacle with the K700i
and MP3s as a ringtone.

1. Go to the Nokia website (www.nokia.com) and download their PC Data
Suite. One of the options is the Multimedia player

2. Use that to open up the MP3 file (or WAV) you want as a ringtone

3. Save as an AMR file type

4. Load this file onto your K700i and use as a ringtone. Viola -
almost as good as the MP3.

This should help those of us that have been Vodaf*#cked.
