    Is there a way to get free ringtones without having to buy a memory card for my phone?

    I KNOW there's a way becasue I've read about people who have Verizon as their service provider do it but can't find any instructions for Bell Mobility subscribers

    Please - for the love of all that's good and pure in this world - help me!!

    do you know your sms email address? it's usually your 10-digit phone number followed by @yourserviceprovider.net so first you need fo figure out your phone's email address.

    then, download the ringtones you want to your hard drive, and then visit http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/ and you can use this site to upload the ringtones to your phone (you must have some kind of web access if you arent using sprint). this tool is designed for sprint phones but works with many other providers as long as you have an sms email address and web access. hope this helps! could use some rep... (when someone helps you out with a problem it's customary to give them some rep by clicking the silver scale button to the left of the thread). thanks!

    Thanks.......

    .... for your speedy reply. I do have an email address that I've used to send emails from my PC to my phone but I tried just attaching the file and sending but that didn't work (wouldn't even recognize the attachment)

    So, I'll try your suggestion

    Thanks again!

    OK, I'm about to throw this f**king phone out the window.

    I went to that site, followed the instructions and when I went to my mobile's browser, it said "Requested Page Not Available" which means that Bell Mobility has locked access to subscribers from getting free ringtones

    I guess I'm stuck with Bell's assfist standard ringtones unless I pony up the $ and get a memory card (which I really don't want to do just for ONE ringtone)

    Thanks anyway for your help

    there are several other uploaders online... most of them have ridiculous size limitations. please dont give up... just keep looking for a different uploader. hope it works out for you...

    free uploader for midi files under 20k http://freeload.thomasscott.net/tone.html

    that memory card isn't just for ringtones... you can take a LOT of pictures (I'm amazed at how often I use it) and it will allow you to take videos that are longer than 15 seconds as well..

    are you working with only mp3 tones? You may have to change the extension on the file to .mid for it to recognize it as a ringtone (or maybe that's just Verizon?)

    I changed the extension to .mid but the problem is that I don't have a memory card and Bell Mobility (damn them) has restricted access to sites that allow uploading of files (probably to force subscribers to pay for ringtones thru the Bell site rather than get them for free)

    I've tried emailing the file to my phone and I do get the message but it says: "attachment was lost". I've also tried going to the sites that Brad729 suggested but my mobile browser restricts access to these sites

    So if anyone knows how to unlock this access or provides me with a surefire way to get this freaking ringtone onto my phone I will weep with joy and give you as much rep cred or whatever you guys call it as needed.

    no experience with your carrier - but try sending yourself a midi or jpg file - let's just see what happens then!

    1 obstacle down, 1 more to go....

    OK, I found a way to get that ringtone onto my phone:

    -created a multimedia message, inserted a voice record of the ringtone i want, sent it to a bogus #, went to my outbox and while it played, i stored it.
    -now it's stored in my Sounds folder but for the life of me, I can't figure out a way to assign it as a Ring ID

    can anyone help with this?

    you need to give that file a false extension of .mid before you send it

    This thread is not even about your phone, and as I have said multiple times, go back and read the replies to the threads you have already posted in. I have answered the same question for you at least 5 times today, you're not reading!

    Re: Help - How do I get free ringtones on my Motorola E815??

    I have the E-815 and have done the following to get ringtones on the phone. This is for VZW subscribers...

    1. Rename the .MP3 to .MID - Needs to be an MDI file
    2. Email it to [email protected] (This is VZW's Picture and multimedia emailer)
    3. When you receive the message, use the right arrow to go to part 2 of the message, the ringtone should play
    4. Click the menu button and select store or save (don't remember the actual key)
    5. The ringtone will play and the right quick key will say store. Click store
    6. You then are prompted with Store or Set as ringtone, choose the set as ringtone option.

    That is all
