    5. Now type this in REN *.3GP *.MP3 or you can cut and paste it This will allow this file to convert all of your .mp3 file extensions to a .3gp file extension, only within the folder it is in, DO NOT FOR ANY REASON PUT THIS IN YOUR MP3 FOLDER FOR YOUR MUSIC ONLY PUT IT IN THE FOLDER FOR MAKING YOUR RING TONES so it will work on the t809.
    Hey Fester..

    I noticed that when I made the .bat file, by clicking it, it didnt change the .MP3.. So I went back and actually changed it to this...

    REN *.MP3 *.3GP

    It worked for me.. Now when I double click the .bat it changes ANY .MP3 WITHIN that folder to a .3gp..

    Hope this helps everyone..

    for caller ID (ringtones and pictures), you have to have the number saved to the phone and not the SIM card for the ID to work.

    Hi all,
    I have just joined this place. And it has been very helpfull. From unlocking my t809 to changing mp3's to 3gp's.
    but still stuck on how to set a 3gp to a "caller" ringtone?
    I have transfered the 3gp's from the memory card to my phone into "My Music" folder, then there is an option for each song to be set as a caller ringtone, but when I select a message pops up saying that 1st I have to copy to phone? Which I did in the "memory card" folder options (Move to-phone) and ended up in "my music" folder.
    Did I miss something?? Or do I need another cup of coffee....lol
    Ps: all my contacts are stored in my sim and not the phone....Maybe that why? Let me try....I just thought about it...lol If this is tha answer to this problem nevermind my issue, otherwise please help.

    Great it worked.....Bingoooo...
    It's funny how you can set a speed dial on a sim stored contact but not a ringtone or pic!! I guess we just have to deal with double contact information thing or delete the sim contact which take out the purpose of the "GSM" thing...lol

    well the reason is that all phones do not support caller ringers and pictures but the made the contact list a standard that is why you cant save a ringtone to a contact on the sim card. if you put the card in another phone 1. it wont have your ringtone and 2. it might not have caller ringers.

    I posted above that numbers have to be on the phone and not the SIM in order for caller ID to work. I guess nobody read it.

    Re: How To for ring tones on the t809

    I went through everything. its just that wen i try to send the ringtone to my music folder. it says unknown file type for some reason. the only things in this folder are all my 30 sec. ringtones (.3gp) and the ms dos batch file.
