alright all, heres my problem. I have a motorola Krave cell phone, and have been wanting to put custom ringtones on it. it is supposed to accept mp3 ringtones, and in fact, all the ringtones I have purchased from Verizon (its a verizon phone) are in mp3 format. lately, Ive been experimenting with making custom ringtones for free. First, I tried recording the sound onto the phone then texting it to another phone and back again, but that did not work, at least not on my phone, but did work on the phones I texted them to (a LG env2 and a motorola Droid) then I downloaded a couple free ringtone maker software off the internet that were supposed to work. I edited them and made the ringtones, made sure they were about 15 seconds (maybe to long?) and tried that, and again, it did not work even though they were in mp3 format. I did however, receive a text message awhile back with this weird little ditty, and it allowed that one to be saved as ringtone. heres the funny part, that one is a mp3 just like the ones Im trying to make, but a smaller file then most of the custom ones Ive tried. anyone know the secret to this? length isnt the problem, of all the ringtones ive purchased from verison, they average around 20-25 seconds, while the ones im trying to save are 15-20. anyway, thanks to any who reply.

- load your chosen mp3 onto a microSD card and put it into the phone (best to put the mem card into the phone first, then take it out and a directory of folders, relative to your phone will now be there).

- then go to menu-->media center-->tones and sounds--> and choose my sounds (or wherever you loaded your mp3s)

- choose to send the mp3 you want in a txt message. . ,to yourself. Once you get that message and play it, you will have the option of setting it as a ringtone.

Hope that helps


You have to make sure the ringtones are mp3 and not wav or wmv and then put them in the sounds folder. Then, on your phone go to the sounds folder and open the file you want as a tone, then select send as pic message to yourself, then when you get it, select set as ringtone. I don't know why they didn't just allow you to make/have a ringers folder and simply click and drag instead of this cumbersome/impractical method, but it does work, thats what counts. I now have 8 custom tones on my phone so its all good. I think the movie file was just a glitch or something so im not worried about that. I'm going to search some more, but if you find out the ideal image size for the wallpaper setting, I'd appreciate it because I added a few high res pics and open it looks fine but then some gets chopped off when the flip is closed.


^ Hope they help. :blink:

I too being w/ vzw have found to crop your mp3 song to 300 Kb or less and / or 30 Sec. or less. Regardless of the songs name, if any, or ext., which is not needed. The song knows what format it is. After you have your Tone cropped down, simply type in .midi as the ext. It just fools vzw's system or network. Send it to your 10#@vzwpix.com and you should get it fine. You can then re-name it if you want to. Good luck !
