    Hello Group,

    we have a new O2 branded V3 and would like to put on MP3 ringtones (or
    another format). Problem: Whenever I send MP3s from the Mac, the darn V3
    tells me it does not recognize the format. I have tried fixed & variable
    bitrate MP3, WAV, Aiff, MP4... all the same. The phone sees incoming
    media, but when the transfer is complete it denies knowing the format.
    May this also be an O2 issue?

    Regards,

    Oliver

    I might add that the same MP3s work just fine on my SonyEricsson P800.

    *Some* MP3s will apparently work on the V3, while others, identical in
    encoding - just differing in size, will not. What is it with this
    thing?! This is seriously annoying.

    What size are the files? How much free memory do you have on your phone?

    Small, 10kb, 40kb... there are several megabytes free on the phone, it
    has not seen much use yet.

    I have a v551 - but I think they are quite similar.
    I find if I encode at anything less than 56kb/s the phone reports that
    they are corrupted. Also, I encode them as mono.

    Also, if they are variable bit rate files - this can also cause problems.

    I've settled on 64kbps, 16KHz sample rate for my home-brewed MP3
    musical 'tones, which works well on my V3 (also on O2, incidentally).
