    Re: R500 Hue

    I got one of these the other day and had 0 problems connecting to PC -- I just switched it to a USB mass drive and plugged it in and it worked fine (to switch from modem to USB drive go to menu --> settings --> Phone Settings --> PC connection --> USB mass storage and your done)

    Try it if you haven't and see if it works [also -- it says to do this in your user manual if you attempted to look in it lol]

    I have only found one way to get custom ringtones... Make the rigntone with any program you want (I use audio editor pro)... Then I send the file to my friend (on his computer) he puts it on his phone and then sends the file to me in a text message from there you can save the sound and apply it as a ringtone. This is the only way I have found to do it (My friend has an AX8600, not a hue, but it shouldn't matter what the other person has as long as they can get custom ringtones) As far as I know you are out of luck for getting custom ringtones without a friend who can get them.

    This worked for me using bluetooth and my pc (copied from another forum). You will need BitPim, a pc (or laptop), and a bluetooth adapter or usb cable to connect your computer to your phone. Be careful poking around in the phone's filesystem like this, you could damage your phone if you mess with the wrong thing. I hope this helps:

    On the computer, tell it to find the phone... Once found it'll do everything to set it up for incoming, and you just need to manually configure it as a serial port... The serial option is ONLY available when setting the PC Connection setting to Bluetooth... This was where I failed a few days ago...

    As a side note, I'm doing all of this through a Windows XP Professional Virtual Machine that is install on a Vista x64 machine... I seccessfully connected to the filesystem on my phone, and even triggered a reset...

    So the instructions aren't clearer, but I'm not a tutorial writer... And I haven't gotten it to work 100% properly...

    Hehehehehe.... I have succeeded... The process is pretty much the same as earlier Samsung model phones, right down to putting the .mp3 file into the /brew/mod/18067 directory, which puts the ringtone in the "My Sounds" directory, and you also need to edit the MSInfo.db file and change the last 0, to a 5.... And voila, this sucker works like a freaking charm

    Edit: Ok, just to be just a tad bit clearer... Just I was just goofin' off before and was so happy figure it out....

    1. Go to alltel store and purchase your phone, after agreeing on a price with the sales associate, have him activate the phone in the regular fashion an Alltel associate would use to activate the phone. This is actually a relatively simple process which if you can't perform this step you should probably stop here.

    2. Bask in the phone's glory for a bit before you embark on a path which may potentially and totally destroy the usefulness of your phone.

    3. Push the button which opens the menu, and go into the following section: Settings>Phone Settings>PC Connection>Select Bluetooth and hit OK, once it says its selected, hit end. (This step is important or you cannot write to the phone, as is typically needed for these types of tasks)

    4. Push Menu again, and go to the following: Tools>Bluetooth>Bluetooth Settings> Select Enable.

    5. Go to your Bluetooth enabled computer and ensure that the Bluetooth functions are turned on.

    I will take a moment and explain the setup I have... I went out and bought a 40 dollar Kensington Bluetooth 2.0 adapter from Circuit City. My machine runs Windows Vista Ultimate x64 edition, as a result I used VMWare and installed Windows XP Professional in a virtual machine and told it to hijack the Bluetooth adapter, and I set it up in there... As a result the rest of these instructions assume you've got XP installed on a computer, in some way shape or form... And that your Bluetooth configuring software is similar to mine.

    6. There should be a Bluetooth logo on the bottom right corner of your screen, next to your clock, right click on this and select "Add a Bluetooth device".

    7. On your phone in the Tools>Bluetooth>Bluetooth Setting menu select Discovery mode, and turn it on.

    8. On the Add a Bluetooth Device wizard hit next... It should find your phone... Go ahead and double click on it. Where at the very least you want to select OBEX and Serial port and hit finish.

    9. It should be configuring things and you should now have 2 new COM ports.., typically 3 and 4.... COM4 should be the Outgoing FROM your computer TO the phone...

    10. Download and install BitPim...

    11. Run BitPim

    12. Click on the Wrench x Screwdriver icon

    13. Under Phone type select "Other CDMA phone", and select COM4, or which ever COM port is associated with the Serial port you created for your Phone.

    14. Click on OK

    15. Click on the Phone with a magnifying glass icon, it'll search for a phone and say "I either can't find it, or don't know I'm connected to it"

    16. Left hand pane you'll see "FileSystem", click on this, center pane, you'll see a folder with a + sign in front of it, click on the + sign. If you shows you the contents of the phone GREAT, you're almost there... If it doesn't then stop, cause I'm being a little sarcastic in this "tutorial" and you'll have to wait for someone who can explain it better...

    17. Navigate to /Brew/Mod/18067 and right click in the right pane and select "New File..." and navigate to the MP3 file you're planning on adding and tell it to put it in there... The copy process can take a minute or two depending on the file size (My file was 1.7MB) Once copying is complete, right click again and select reboot phone. and close BitPim

    18. Once the phone has fully rebooted go ahead and restart BitPim and repeat steps 15 & 16

    19. Navigate to the same directory as step 17

    20. left click on MSInfo.db and select Save... And save it somewhere obvious...

    21. Go to the obvious place you saved the file to and right click it, select "Open With..." and open it with WordPad...

    22. Once open in WordPad you'll see something like "/ff/brew/mod/18067/filename.mp3|0|0", change that last 0 to a 5, and save it....

    23. Back in BitPim, go ahead and right click on MSInfo.db again and select overwrite and again navigate to the obvious place you saved the file to and and overwrite the one on the phone.

    24. Right click an empty area and select reboot phone again...

    25. Once the phone has rebooted go ahead and go to Settings>Sounds Settings>Ringer type>Voice Calls>My Sounds> and you should now see your MP3 file at the top of the list... Select play to make sure it work, and then hit OK to make it your new Ringtone...

    And voila, assuming you didn't toast your phone, you're good to go...

    Total cost of project? About 40 bucks for the Blurtooth adapter...
