    Doesn't seem like the Multimedia program within MPT does much but
    transfer it's own files into my v551. What goes it that? I have some
    neat wav and mp3 files I'd like to turn into "rings" on my phone.

    Recommendations?

    With MPT you can import whatever MP3 files you have and edit it to the
    precise snippet you want to use as a ringer. Once done it'll load it to
    the phone and you're done. For wav to mp3 conversion there are bunch of
    free programs.

    I have the latest version of MPT3.25b and every time I try to "save
    selection as" of my MP3 file. I get the message "Failed to create
    file" . When I highlight a large selection of the song and click on
    the "Remove Selection" icon. It won't do that either. I'm just
    talking about MP3 forget about wav files.

    I use audacity to do my mp3 editing, saving under a different filename than
    the original. That allows me to use more than one part of a tune. MPT
    will upload those just fine. And, btw, Audacity is free.

    forget the exact subject line for the thread, but it included a link to an
    excellent tutorial on creating mp3 ringtones with audacity. It was a month
    or two ago.

    Yes, it is an excellent guide up to a point where I have a problem.
    When I am supposed to export my finished mp3 file and in the process
    rename it's extension to ".mid" . Now that didn't and as it turns out
    doesn't make any sense. You can't change the format of a file by
    renaming the file extension as the guide implies. I tried it. The
    new edited file plays fine as and MP3 file but not as a midi file. My
    v551 phone wants a midi file. I need to know how to convert an mp3
    file to a midi file. I have been searching the web for a program that
    will do that and cannot find one.

    Converting to midi is not a simple process. Why can't you use the mp3
    files? The v series phones are mp3 capable.

    I tried to delete my last post. I did get a couple of the MP3 files
    to work. For some reason a couple of other MP3 files read as
    "corrupt" on the phone. It's all good now. Thanks

    At least on some phones, with Verizon Wireless anyway, the "renaming"
    thing is due to the VZW messaging portal converting files with the .MP3
    suffix to the QCP format before sending it to the phone, and some phones
    won't accept QCP format for ringtones (even though they can play them).
    So you rename (NOT convert) the .MP3 file to .MID, taking care in the
    Windows file explorer to check the option to make sure suffixes are
    displayed, else you will rename foo.mp3 to foo.mid.mp3. The portal does
    not mess with files with the .MID suffix, so the file is sent unaltered
    to the phone. Now, the phone ignores the suffix and looks at the actual
    format of the file, determines it to be an MP3 file, which it is happy
    to use a ringtone. They key to all of this is that some tools just look
    at the suffix, but others look at the actual file content.
