    Well, it looks like if you send a midi file less than 15kb through the data cable, it works. So it looks like I'm now going to be looking for the right program too since most, if not all, the files from ringerpost.com are way too big.

    well i can give you a very good solution if you want to make a ringer from any mp3 provided you have a pcs vision plan and get it to your mm-8300 and playing successfully...
    1. download the wavepad player here: WavePad
    2. then download the mp3 plugin here:
    MP3 Plugin
    3. download the GCD Creator here:
    GCD Creator installation file
    4. unzip the gcdcreator file and install it
    5. then go to fun for mobile editing walkthrough and follow ONLY steps 1-7 NOT 8 (i've found their converter to be problematic)
    6. by now you should have an edited version of your mp3 saved as a .wav file
    7. open GCD Creator and click the WAV to QCP button on the left side, then click the lil arrow next to the file destination window and find your wav file and convert away
    8. go to FunForMobile , create an account. once your account is created, click here: Uploader
    9. click the browse button, find your file, and click "send to phone"
    thats it, you have an awesome sounding ringtone for your mm-8300 that is a suprisingly small file for the quality and length of the song. it sounds complicated... but it takes me like 5 minutes at most. all the programs and sites in this how-to are free aren't gonna give you spam or viruses... i've checked them thouroughly. and i know i almost oversimplified it... but it works, trust me. any questions email me at [email protected]

    Generally, how much does it cost to send it to your phone, is that part of a particular plan, because this cable transfer is rediculous at best, you're only able to transfer midi (less than 20kb) and png files (less than 100kb), thats just stupid, dumb, and unbelievable!

    well it's part of the vision plan (which is basically the internet on your sprint phone). the vision plan is like $20 or $30 a month i think... but i think its 2cents per kb if you don't have vision... so unless you have a vision plan it's kind of expensive. but the vision plan is well worth it for more than just ringtones... the vision plan is the internet... so i recomend it

    Thanks for the info.
    Should work for most people.
    As for me, Sprint is too expensive as it is.
    I'll keep searching.......................
    Maybe there's another program better than Bitpim.

    yea... i'm not gonna argue about sprint bein too expensive... but there is another option (through the data cable). here's the problem, it's not free... it's a one time $50 purcshase... the official data cable program for the mm-8300. its from futuredial... the company that sanyo works with to create and distribute data cable software. it's called futuredial suite, here's the link: FutureDial Suite . like i said, $50, but it will work for the mm-8300 and it will do most of what you wanna do in terms of data transfering

    Sounds like an excellent option. I'll give it a shot. I remember seeing it at a Frys electronics store.

    Vision Access: $10/month
    Vision Plus: $15/month (includes unlimited pic mail)

    I have Vision Plus and it is worth it for me

    Seeing how futuredial isn't doing much more than bitpim did, I might just go the Vision route.

    that sucks, i'm sry... i was plannin on gettin it in a week with my next paycheck... still might but idk... but in all honesty the vision plan is an excellent plan and i can 100% guarantee you that the the method i put up earlier in the thread works... i now have FOB chicago, my chem romance i'm not ok, and a weezer song on my phone, just haven't had the time to add more with work... and all those clips are like 30-35 seconds and only take up like 60kb
