    It works with monophonic ringtones, on some Nokia models without composers. It's called Nokia binary format and starts with //SCKL.

    It works with monophonic ringtones, on some (older) Motorola models with composers. ("Motorola binary format")



    These two formats, I can provide.



    The Nokia codes apparently work on a T610, or so I've heard, although the quality is none too great.

    Neither the Motorola codes nor the Nokia codes work on polyphonic Motorola handsets - I haven't tried them on anything else.




    If you meant to send a polyphonic ringtone - you might as well forget it, sorry!
    Unless you don't send a "plain text"-message, but a multimedia-message. IF your phone allows forwarding soundclips, you can send a polyphonic tone as well. It's NOT a "text message", though, but a "multimedia message".



    So, whether you can "text message" your friend a ringtone depends on which type of tone you want to send to which phone model.


    This is about as clear an answer as you can get, i suppose!

    //SCKL works on nokia 2280

    i have a nokia 2280 on cdma, until recently(yesterday) i could not get any new ringtones for it.
    using //SCKL binary format i have 4 new tunes on my phone..
    the only problem is finding more of these codes or at least some one that knows how to convert RTTL codes, nokia keypress codes or nokia composer codes...i have been informed that you can download free ringtone converters but i tried a free ringtone converter on about .com and it didn't do what i was asking it to do.....convert from one code to the other...ok..what your dealing with here is a modern technology dummy!! it was basically telling me to use something i don't have...
    perhaps someone here knows how to convert in to the //SCKL format???

    You can use CodingWorkshop RingtoneConverter (Full Version, about 20$ I think) or a program named "RingtoneTools" which is totally free.
    You can download RingtoneTools here:
    http://ringtonetools.mikekohn.net/docs.php

    It's a "command line"-tool, though.

    Good luck! =)

    I figure the "hardest" thing is to open a "command line-window" and get to the directory ringtonetools is in.

    Of course, you can try to open one, see which one is the "default directory" and just place the program there.


    The rest is easy actually!


    Have fun!

    ok, i tried to download 2 different ringtone converters,and for some reason they wouldn't download onto my computer properly if i recall correctly ,a window popped up that said file size was.......and file size is...... download again
    not exact words but you get my drift.
    i tried again, same results, so i have given up until my computer is reformatted...any way i have decided not to bother as i only want 2 ringtones converted......i have them written down in
    RTTL , nokia keypress sequence and nokia composer, if anyone can convert them for me to //SCKL i will be one very happy chicky!!!

    Just PM them over or something!
    The RTTTL-codes, preferably. They're the easiest to import.
