I need to upgrade my handset and I want one that lets me set my own custom ringtones.
Does anyone know whcih Fido phones allow this?
It used to be so easy to do this on the older phones, but it seems many newer phones don't support this. For instance, my friend just got an LG Xenon which doesn't allow custom ringtones.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I use custom .WAV ringtunes on my Sony Ericsson Cedar (J108). They SAY in the manual they allow MP3 ringtunes, but be darned if I can get any of them to work.
Thats how a lot of other phones work too. They support MP3, but it has to contain a Licence ie: you have to PAY for it through a ringtone store. you can put your own mp3s on a phone but they will just be that, MP3s for playback, not for the purpose of ringtone.
You also discovered that ringtones are not solely MP3 format, they can be .Wave .AMR, or other formats depending on the phone. Some of these formats such as Wav may not support DRM so thats why you CAN use them in some cases.
I did buy two ringtones through Amazon.com... they did not work.
I write my own MP3's under a Creative Commons license and Sony Ericsson admitted they cannot legally prohibit me from using my own music, but said they never encountered such an issue and had not an idea how to assist.
Go figure that one out? *shrug*
Interesting, the instructions are there for the Linux version (which I need), but there is no *nix download, LOL!
Well, good thing wifey uses XP...
