    I just purchased a Nokia 3595, and I am wondering if it is possible to upload
    ringtones to the phone from a PC using the internet. Attach the sound file to
    an Email directed to the phone's address perhaps? Now that AT&T has expanded
    their profit base to include picture/ringtone downloads that range in maturity
    between 'stupid and dumbass-cool', some of us would like to install ringtones
    that actually sound like a phone ringing, without having someone pick our
    pockets again and again.

    Yes, I know. Cellular is no longer about basic voice communication; it is now
    about silly noises and pictures, postage-stamp sized, funky-cool bling-bling
    ugly-ass silvery jellybean-shaped equipment, built-in cameras to take pictures
    of genitalia, and silly-ass, built-in cartoonish animation to keep the hip-hop
    crowd grinning like wankin' dumbasses. And of course, it is very profitable.
    American businesses are whores: they would sell canned dog farts if thought
    they could make a few bucks with it.

    Unfortunately, the professional over-30 crowd has been left out of this
    evolution of what was originally a very useful business tool. AT&T's cellular
    service has now degraded into yet another silly kiddie-fad, complete with an
    unshaven, bummy spokesperson. It's all about the money, I guess.

    At any rate, I chose this particular phone because it looks and acts much like
    'classic equipment' that I've used in the past, and I gave up my wonderful old
    Panasonic Duramax only because TDMA is being phased out. (Seems like every
    time shareholders demand more profit, AT&T finds some way to force you to
    replace everything you've ever bought from them.) All I ask now is a ringtone
    that sounds like a phone ringing, without opening up my wallet...again.

    JD , I agree with everything xcept this part because 14
    years ago when the world began to agree to
    the G in GSM , the folks in USA thought it best to stick to the TDMA.
    in hindsight the US Shareholders are to blame back then for who decided
    it was more "profitable" to keep TDMA instead of switching to GSM

    Ahhhh, you are not keeping up with American Corporate Strategy, my friend!
    Around here, it's FAR more profitable to incrementally release new technology
    in very small steps, as late in the game as possible. Imagine if you will,
    the BILLIONS that will be made when the switch to hi-def TV hits the wall.
    American Corporations deliberately stonewall the public and wait until the
    last second before governmentally mandated changes force them to introduce
    expensive new appliances to replace expensive old appliances that people have
    just bought. More money can be made by going from a, to b, to c, rather than
    from a, directly to c.

    And with product lifespans growing ever shorter already, we've been
    conditioned to think that most everything *should* be replaced every so often,
    regardless of what it is or what it originally cost. It is this notion of a
    'disposable society' that distresses me. Landfills and junkyards are running
    out of space, while corporate America grows ever richer from our percieved
    notion that replacement, ...is good.

    Thank you for your request!

    Much more convenient way is to use technological F-Bus cable for the
    data synchronization purposes for this phone: this cable connects
    under special engineering plug under the phone's battery. You can see
    this, if you will remove the battery. Also you will need special
    software for data synchronization, for example, Oxygen Phone Manager
    II. You can download the trial version of the program and view the
    screenshots on our official website here: http://www.opm-2.com/ This
    version support Nokia 3595 on software level.

    Trial version enables to create your own color logos or load your own
    predefined ones in program, set custom images as startup, wallpaper
    (background) or operator logo (from 'Logos' section) and read your
    gallery folders and its contents. Gallery upload function in 'Gallery
    manager' section is avaialable in full registered version only.

    If you will have any questions, concerning our program's
    functionality, feel free to ask them on our official forum:

    The only way I can think of is by getting a cable - these are less
    than a tenner from http://www.logomanager.co.uk/php/cat.php?id=106 and
    then using MobiMB which is 15 quid. Avoid Oxygen like the plague-
    costs a fortune and they don't even let you connect as many phones as
    you want. At least MobiMB lets me customise my family and friend's
    phones as well as my own, without them charging me each time.

    I can say that the cost of the cable and MobiMB is a bargain- they
    will let you put on any 'normal' ringtone, as well as let you change
    other features such as logos and wallpapers, and games.

    This is not true. Basically, you can connect infinite number of
    phones, but in Individual license (costs 39 EU euroes) you can upload
    information only in one phone and in Family License (costs 59 EU
    euroes) in three phones. In case, if you will change one of your
    phones, you can always unregister and old phone and register the new
    one without any additional payment.
    As you can see, phone quantity in license restricts only upload
    functionality for the phones, you wish to use in current license, but
    it doesn't apply if you are changing one phone to another and on
    read-only handsets. You can read about this in our Frequently Asked
    Questions (you can download this PDF document from our official
    website http://www.opm-2.com) and on our official forum:

    No matter how you put it, I'd prefer no restrictions! People do not
    want to have to fork out extra for working with their kids phones, not
    even commenting on the problems with the software, as discussed in
    other threads. Logomanager software has no restrictions on the number
    of phones you work with.

    I didn't know about this difference until I started using MobiMB. I
    can work with my phones, my family's phones and my friends phones. I
    only ever put on one logo or ringtone as a favour to a friend- if they
    then want this more often, they are more than happy to get the
    software for themselves.

    Nope- just like winding Oxygen up! The more they don't like it, the
    more I wind. They never answered my support requests about my trashed
    phone, so what do they expect. Plus I do like the infrared port and
    software I got from LM.

    Maybe I should ask them for a job! lol.
