    You will need a card reader such as this
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820402201
    You plug the card reader into your usb port. You put the minisd card into the full sd card adapter that comes with the card. You plug the sd card adapter into the card reader. You computer recognizes the card as a usb flash drive, and you drag and drop your files into it. Take the sd card adapter out of the card reader. Take the minisd card out of the sd card adapter, and plug your minisd card into your phone. Now everything should work.

    I could be wrong about the ringtones becuase I don't actually own a minisd card.

    <edit> Well, after reading a few other threads about this phone on other forums, it looks like it is not possible. FOR NOW, the only thing you can use a minisd card is for transfering of pics/videos.
    I tried all that and it doesn't work. It doesn't seem to matter where you put an mp3 or mid file, you can't make it a ringtone.

    acording to the manual it says its possible, but in reality it doesn't look to be.

    assuming its not a misprint in the manual (which it doesn't look to be, because the way the menus are organized on the phone creating your own ringtones is under the get new ringtones menu. So I would assume it should be fixed. How would someone go about undating software on a phone?

    It works!!!

    I found the answer at http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...hreadid=772771 Now I can make my own default ringtones , but only default ringtones. I can't make them work as custom ringtones (i.e. assigned to a contact).

    Well, I figured out the second part of my problem, getting the ringtone associated with a contact. Turns out you can't do it from the Contacts page as it won't show up there, but here's how you can do it:

    1. Go to GET IT NOW
    2. Get Tunes & Tones
    3. Select the ringtone that you've imported
    4. Press Options (right softkey)
    5. Select "Set As Ringer ID"
    6. Then select the contact to associate with this ringtone

    That's it.
