Mobile phone sound recording format puzzle

In a previous thread (click here) I was trying to understand how to create a mobile phone ringtone from a PC sound file.

Well, to be honest, I got so frustrated trying to understand this process that I gave up!

Instead I tried using my mobile's sound recording function (its a Panasonic EB-VS6) to record a snatch of music that I could use as a ringtone.

The phone seems to have successfully recorded the music, but it has saved it in the format .amr. All of the phone's "built-in" ringtones seem to be in .mmf or .m4a. When I try to get the phone to play back the .amr file, the visual display shows it playing the file, but no sound can be heard.

Why on earth would my phone record a sound file in a format that, apparently, it cannot play back?

Thanks sandeepsingh. I'll give your idea a try. But I would still like to know why my phone would record a sound in a format that it can't play!

It doesn't make much sense, does it?!

This is all looking a bit messy. Best if I close the thread, I think.
