    Re: Samsung Rant (M540) mp3 ringtones from sd card

    Hi Toasted1,

    I'm also dealing with the same problem, and I was hoping your solution would work because I don't have a data plan with Sprint and therefore don't want to have to go online with the phone to load ringtones.

    I followed your instructions so that the ringtones I downloaded from the internet (on my computer) are now converted into .3g2 files. And with the cable I loaded them onto the sd card for the Rant. I wasn't entirely clear when you said that the files need to be in the DCIM folder whether that meant the DCIM folder of the phone or the card. So I've tried both, but in neither case will the phone allow me to use the files as ringtones. I've also tried putting them in the Videos folder.

    What have I done wrong? Is there more than one way to load ringtones? I've been going through the Settings menu.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I understand as I don't have a plan as well...

    under the memory card folder 'dcim' there is another folder '100ssmed' this is where the file goes. then under the ringer selection goto 'my videos' folder... it should be there....

    I haven't tried qpst or bitpim yet... but i assume that will work as well.. but I am always wary of these chipset utility programs

    i have a rant, no internet plan, ive done the converter thing and it works but is there a way to get downloaded ringtones via pc and use they as both a ringer and/or message alert like for text messages. i been trying to use phonezoo but once i get the tone on the computer, i dont know what to do next and since i dont have internet, i cant upload using the text method (sprint charges data usage)

    you can save it in either or (phone or card) DCIM folder. the best thing to do is to make the file name SSPX****.3g2 the file name (*=number). I read that in another forum, and it worked fine for me. However I used Audacity to make my 30 second clip, and then used Extension Changer to change it from .mp3 to .3g2! Hope this helps!

    3. load it to your sd card

    4. ringtones can be selected from uploaded videos

    easy as pie

    edit:

    1. you need to put the 3g2 file in the DCIM folder

    2. videos over 512k cannot be loaded as ringers

    and as for panzera: this free program rocks for uploading videos to your phone even full movies... nice


    Hello, new here. I have tried what you have said and it doesn't seem to work. When I try to select one of the files for my ringer it shows a red "x" where a video file would be. I can select options and play the file and it plays fine. The problem is when I select that file as my ringer and back out of the settings menu and have someone call me, it reverts back to the default ringer. Any ideas?

    This solved my problem. Thanks everyone!!!

    Hey,
    i can get all the way to the point where it's in my videos, but when i play it, i can't hear it. I did all the steps, i've done it a couple times. i don't know what could have gone wrong but i don't know why it won't play loud.
    help?!?!??!

    oh! for the SSPX****.3g2 what numbers are the * supposed to be?!?!
