    I just upgraded phones from a Nokia 6101 to the new Nokia 6126. My old
    carrier is TMobile and my new one is Cincinnati Bell. Anyway, there are
    a couple of mp3 ringtones that I paid for on my old phone that I would
    like to transfer to the new one because they are not available for
    purchase from my new carrier. Can I do this simply with a USB data
    cable and the Nokia PC Suite software or do I need something else.
    Thanks so much for any help.

    At least on my 6125 the ringtones are stored as normal files, so just copy the
    files to the new phone should work, easiest can be if you can use the same
    type of memory cards in both phones (I know there aren't that many phones that
    supports cards). Using bluetooth may allow you to send files between the
    phones directly (I know, not all has bluetooth). But yes, connecting the
    phones to the computer and use the closed source program should allow you to
    copy the file between the phones.

    OP did mention he/she had paid for the ring tones. The files are then likely
    DRM copy protected and normal (legal?) SW like Nokia PCSuite probably would
    not allow copying those to another phone.

    Didn't think about that, but when talking about DRM, is it really legal to
    sell DRM limited audio and video? as it does limit your possibility to use the
    product.

    It seems so, and on top of all, they seem to pay for almost everything on the
    net, I still remember the good days when you could surf around the net without
    a login requester popping up and tell that I can access the site only if I pay
    US$XXX. Not everything gets better...

    No, you're not alone. I get irritated when mobile-specific posts get cross
    posted to uk.telecom as well as uk.telecom.mobile. If they don't go to
    the latter, it's usually lack of knowledge of the poster that is the reason
    but when cross-posted, it means they have chosen to post off-topic junk (in
    uk.telecom it is off-topic, anyway).

    Some months ago, on radio, they mentioned a "cough" ringtone which might
    end up being used by people in cinemas/theatres/restaurants, as that's a
    less obvious 'ring' and might not be noticed so much. I guess a cough,
    with at least 10 seconds of silence after it would be best...

    Hmm....I'd think VIBRATE would be better in a theatre...no noises at all.

    Some theatres and restaurants are also running the cellphone broadband
    jammers which are very effective inside their buildings, I hear. Problem
    solved...(c; I don't mind a cellphone ringing in a restaurant,
    especially if it has a ringtone different from my ol' telephone default
    Motobeeper. If there's some kind of performance going on, I think the
    jammer is very appropriate. Schools all should run the jammers until the
    bell rings and classes let out, turn them off so the kids can call Mom,
    then jam them again as the bell rings starting the next class.

    There's a whole market installing timed jammers in schools I haven't seen
    addressed. Jam the bands from on-the-hour to hour + 50 minutes starting
    at 0800 to 1500, or whatever the school's class schedule is. Leave the
    jammer off during lunch, starting it again for the afternoon classes....
    All the kids could bring their cellphones, now controlled access, to
    school as they DO serve valuable functions....instead of this blanket
    banning our schools do around here, which doesn't work, of course, just
    drives the phones underground.

    Anyone got a good, farting .mp3? How good would that be "ringing" in a
    restaurant. It'd be a damned easy way to get out of boring mettings and
    corporate presentations.

    Anyone got one,up for making one?

    There's also a market installing coshes for hitting pensioners over
    the head and stealing their pensions. That's illegal too.
