    Can someone help me? I just started having trouble customizing ringtones for my A930. I was making them no problem for quite some time. I was naming the file this way : happybirthday.mid.mp3. It worked fine and then about a month ago everytime I do the same exact thing, it shows up on my phone as a qcp (?) file. Not only does it sound horrible, you also can't save it as a workable ringtone. I thought it might have had to do with my vzwpix account expiring (I have Verizon), so I renewed that and it didn't help.

    I read in another thread where someone just used .mid as the suffix and when I tried that, there was no sound at all when the file got to my phone.

    Any help is appreciated and I apologize if I duplicated a different thread.

    Re: A930 Ringtone Problems

    Dude222,

    You helped me out in November when I decided to get this a930 Samsung. I've been doing well with over a hundred customized ringtones... until last week. Everything I've been sending to myself has now become those pesky qcp files instead of the normal mp3 files. Looks like Verizon has wisened up. If they are the cause of this... it's a shame. I've so many good ringtones to make. And I ain't gonna pay $1.50 per ringtone on some stupid paysite or even worse... pay $1.50 to Verizon for that stupid Get It Online feature ringtone thing they advertise. Maybe it's time for some crafty person to find a new way to circumvent those money grubbers at Verizon.

    AND btw, those sites that ask for your phone number and name so they can send you a ringtone for free. Forget about it. Do you really want your name and number floating around for some ad agency or marketer to find?

    Peace

    Interesting, it probably is Verizon then. I wouldn't be surprised if they had 'someone' reading these forums...pretty pathetic. Well, at least I got some cool tones outta the deal. Guess it's time to figure out how to get around this little bump in the road. DID YOU HEAR THAT VERIZON?? LOL...Thanks man, keep in touch if you figure anything out and I will do the same.

    Re: A930 Ringtone Problems

    Several guys at another well-known forum confirmed my suspicions. They've been having problems since mid May. I've tried several solutions with using the microSD card and my computer but the phone simply won't read the data files when I return the microSD back into the phone. AND Samsung made sure that bluetooth file transfers will not work at all from the outset of the phone's manufacture. Oh well. Hopefully, we're all wrong about Verizon catching on.... and it's some glitch in the system.

    Peace

    Misscuetee,

    Are you saying that your son has a newer model of Samsung phone? Perhaps Verizon has figured out that too many SCHa930s are getting ringtones for free and are conspiring to shut us down. Bummer. I still say there has got to be a way to use the microSD and make the phone recognize sound files that are placed on it via computer. Hopefully, someone out here who is way smarter than me can figure the go-around on this latest snafu.

    Peace

    Re: A930 Ringtone Problems

    It's Verizon for sure. Samsung could care less what you download on your phone, they made their money when they sold the phone initially. Cell phone companies make cell phones to the specifications of the carriers; the only reason our phones won't 'cooperate' any more, or in the first place, all models are different; is because Verizon 'told' them to disable certain features.

    In the case of this customized ringtone problem, they probably further disabled this particular function. My guess would be that if it doesn't originate from Get It Now, it ain't goin' on your phone.

    It's Verizon all the way, trust me. $83,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.00 (That's a Gajillion dollars by the way) still isn't enough for them. Even with us paying .25 each time we receive a tone we send from our email.

    It's not enough to make me get a new phone yet, but it may be enough for me NOT to sign another contract with them...

    Re: A930 Ringtone Problems

    Dude222,

    check out the sticky threads. And go get Winamp ASAP. Best of luck. I made my best friend's ringtone the end of the manah manah song cuz it irritates him to no end! Hooray Ringtone!

    Peace

    BTW, the end of manah manah has the following:

    "It was wonderful! Bravo! I loved that! Oh, it was great! Well, it was pretty good! Well, it wasn't bad. There were parts of it that weren't very good though. It could've been a lot better. I didn't really like it. It was pretty terrible. It was bad. It was awful. Oh, it's terrible. Get 'em away! HEY! BOO!"
