    I've been trying for the past week to set my created mp3's as ringtones on my newly bought T-619 phone. Being unsuccessful, I went to the Samsung mobile website and discovered a small note. The note states that "MP3 ringtones are limited to downloaded T-Zone ringtones only". Now I was hoping that someone in this forum would know some way around this.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Here's the details on making a ringtone that sounds good:

    1. Convert your MP3's to WAV files. I use iTunes. Got to the preferences/options in iTunes, and click on the "advanced" tab and then the "importing" tab. Select in the drop down menu the import by using "wave encoder" option. After exiting the preferences, select the song you want in iTunes and go to "Advanced" in the top toolbar. Select "Convert Selection to Wav". Done! You can also use "Switch". Located here: http://www.download.com/Switch/3000-...-10430342.html

    2. Trim your Wav files how you like them. You can use Wavepad located here: http://www.download.com/WavePad/3000...-10382895.html
    You can also use Wavepad to open an MP3 and save to Wav skipping step 1.

    3. Download WSD (Wave Sound Decoder) from here http://smaf-yamaha.com/tools/downloads.html#wsd
    Open up your Wav file. Change the drop down to MA-5. (Better quality then MA-2). Go to Edit then Sample Type and resample your file to 24000. Also make sure convert to mono is checked. AGain make sure you have MA-5 in the drop down if you want decent quality.

    4. Save the file to your desktop (or anywhere) as an ".mmf". Rename the extension, ".mmf", to ".mid". For example rename MYSONG.mmf to MYSONG.mid. Now copy the mid file to your transflash card. Put it in either your "my_sounds" folder, "my_media" folder, or "media" folder.

    Good Luck

    Mohnchichi,

    So let me get this right, in order to set my mp3's as ringtones I must convert them to wave files with an mmf extension? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having mp3's and is there quality drop off by doing this? I guess Tmobile made it next to impossible to play ones own mp3's. I'll give it a try.

    Thanks

    Hey - I am new to the site and have TMobile also. I just got the T619 today and I think if you get the data kit or buy a bluetooth, you can then get the mp3 from your PC to your cell and then select it as a ring tone. Not sure about that but I think that is the only way if you don't wanna do the process already mentioned. It kinda sucks since that is another 50 to 100 bucks for the add on accessories. But good luck!

    Ok...first you can't use a full mp3 as a ringtone. You will need to trim it down to like 30 seconds. (whats the use of having a full mp3 as a ringtone when the phone only rings a few times then goes to voicemail?)

    I use Audacity (do a google search for Audacity) to cut my mp3's down to the apprpriate size, save them with a new name (as a mp3 of course), then use my data cable to transfer them over to the phone. You don't lose any of the quality of the song and using Audacity you can get the best part of the mp3 to play when somebody calls.
