    Last week I picked up a T226 for my son, and yesterday I picked up the
    T616 for myself. I'm still trying to figure out the options available
    to both of us with respect to games, ringtones, etc.

    If anyone could confirm my initial conclusions, I would appreciate it.
    I'm on Cingular, fwiw.

    It appears that I now have to sign up for Wireless Internet service in
    order to access ringtones and games. This was news to me, since my
    old Nokia (non polyphonic) would reecive them via a text message.

    It also looks like I can dl from my PC to the T616 (but not the T226)
    any midi or other files that I might be able to pull from the
    internet.

    The T226 my son uses has a nice little ringtone composer. I haven't
    spent any time with it, but he showed me how he composed something
    from the rock opera Tommy via a small picture of a piano keyboard. I
    can't find anything similar on the T616. There is a composer but I
    can't see how to input a known melody - it just seems to build pieces
    based on a preset bunch of riffs. Is ther a way to input a known
    melody?

    Thanks for any help.

    Yeah. I would recommend getting a bluetooth module, you can use it to move
    pictures off the phone and ringtones, themes, midis, backgrounds etc onto
    it.

    No, not a melody, just re-arrange the predefined bits and pieces like you
    already discovered. Anyway, why would you want to compose up to a 32
    simultaneous tones song using a phone keypad and a tiny little LCD screen?
    Get a midi sequencer and compose it on your PC (preferably using a
    touch-sensitive midi keyboard ), then send it over to your phone.

    Thanks - that's part of my problem - I've got a fair amount of
    experience with business applications, but have never spent much time
    with graphics and music, so I don't know what's out there (even though
    I have more degrees in music than I do accounting!)
