    Just a quick question about Nokia phones.

    I know that the Nokia 6600 has personalised Ringtones, but i'm just
    wondering if any other phones in the Nokia phones have the ability to
    download your own midi ringtones onto the phones. I don't mean getting
    ringtones from O2 or whatever, but putting your own midis on, like Sony
    Ericsson phones have.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    The 3589 does but the Nokia Suite can't download them appears to be a bug in
    the Suite software.

    Speculation is that it is not a "bug" but an intentional de-featuring
    by request of (at least in the US) Verizon so that they can encourage
    you to buy ringtones with Get It Now.

    Though I have not tried it, MobiMB from LogoManger is said to have the
    ability to upload ringtones to the 3589i. See

    Yes I heard the same thing and I have downloaded MobiMB but the ringtone
    download feature is not enabled in the evaluation version. Sorry but I am
    just not going to buy a piece of software over the internet without being
    able to test it first. I contacted the company and they said they have the
    feature disabled because of hackers. Apparently they send you a new version
    once you buy. Their theory is that if there is no code then there is
    nothing to hack. Pretty good theory but I wonder how many customers they
    lost (like me) because they were not able to test the software fully. Seems
    to me that someone who is willing to take the time to hack or at least track
    down an existing hack isn't going to buy the software anyway.

    Not the point: someone who has hacked the software is likely to put
    the hacked version out there for others to download, so the company
    loses business.

    It's only like $22 for the software, isn't it? You saw the basic
    interface of the software - should be enough to figure out whether you
    should spend the money or not.

    The Nokia Suite does what I want for free (except for downloading
    ringtones). Since I have a problem downloading ringtones to my phone, I
    really don't want to spend $22 not knowing for sure it is going to work.

    Your right they can put it out there but not just any internet provider will
    host those files. Plus someone that is willing to post a hacked file is
    just but the program and post that.

    The nice folks at MobiMB sent me am unrestricted version to evaluate. I am
    happy to say that ringtones work just fine on my Verizon 3589i with MobiMB.
    So either they have found a way around the block that Verizon supposedly
    puts on ring tones or more than likely, there is a bug in the Nokia Suite.
