DIY Ringtones


Pine Man

Likes # 0

I am a complete numpty when it comes to mobile phones but ok with computers.

My phone is a Sony Ericsson T290i and I want to put different ringtones on it - without paying for them of course!

I have seen free progs on the internet for converting music files etc into ringtones but what format should they be converted to and after I have converted them how do I get them into my phone?

Can anyone recommend such a program for idiots?

Dont know about your phone but on mine you link the phone up to the pc with a mini usb cable and drag an mp3 file to the " sounds" folder. Easy as that. Use an audio editor like Audacity to trim the file to the correct length and fade in/ out if you desire

Pine Man.As long as you got the lead that goes from the mobile to the computer you can still use that free web site for ring tones.Just download the ring tones to your desktop. Use the Program thatFatboyslim71 put on and transfer that way.
