Cell phone ring tones


Any ideas on where to download free ring tones with Chinese or Korean songs?

Maybe download is the wrong word, but how do I get those songs to ring on my cell phone. I have AT&T (used to be Cingular) LG cell phone.

Re: Cell phone ring tones


merela,

It is a dark secret to me and when I had a cell I really would have liked one or two of the SMAP songs. The melodies are really good. However I had no idea how to do it even if I found where to get them. Now I don't have a cell phone anymore. I was not using it and it was costing an arm and a leg. If I find out I will let you know how you can get a d/l

Re: Cell phone ring tones


The process of getting ring tones onto a cell phone usually involves connecting the phone to a computer via a cable (usually USB). Companies that make cell phones (LG, Motorola, Nokia, etc.) normally have software that accompanies their phones in order to connect it to a computer. This software can aid you in transferring ring tones, pictures, videos, whatever it may be to a cell phone from a computer and vice versa.

In my experience, the special manufacturer's software for connecting to their phones often doesn't work very well. If you have Bluetooth-capable phone, that's an alternative: just use the Bluetooth in your computer (RadioShack has inexpensive Bluetooth USB adapters for computers without built-in Bluetooth).

Basically, you just upload music from your computer to the phone via the cable Moises mentioned or via Bluetooth. Then you may have to use your phone to select the new audio file as a ringtone. That should be it.

Note: Many older mobile phones just have digital, synthetic-sounding ringtones that have to be downloaded from the manufacturer. They don't have the ability to play music samples.

Thanks so much! This is exactly the information I needed, especially since I blocked internet access from my phone, so I won't be able to download any ring tones from my phone via the internet. The reason I blocked internet access was because I was playing around with my phone when I first got it and I kept pressing the wrong button connecting me to the internet.

Another question. What file format will the Bluetooth phone accept? My daughter has a Highschool Musical CD and can I load a song from the CD into my computer and then transfer that music file into my cell phone using the Bluetooth USB adapter?

Generally, they will want the ringtone in MP3 format. So, you could use iTunes to copy the song from the CD to your computer and save it as an MP3.

Of course, you don't need the entire song for your ringtone, just the first few seconds of it (and only in mono instead of stereo). I wouldn't worry about all that too much unless you are really short of space on your phone. In that case, there are MP3 editing tools you can find to chop down the MP3, change it from stereo to mono, and reduce its quality to reduce its size.
