Can I use MP3 as ringtone in the SLVR?

Hi there,

I just got me a Motorola SLVR and I was wondering if I can download (via PC) an mp3 or other audio file and use it as a ringtone?

Thanks in advance,

PS: My carrier is Cingular

most likely, since you can do it on the Razr, on my Razr i use an Mp3 audio mixer and mix all my own ringtones, and use the bluetooth to put them on my phone. And since the Slvr is just a better razr, i wouldnt see why not

I have the USB cable that came with the phone. Do I just download the MP3 to the Sounds File of the Phone's Memory Card?

i have no idea, For my Razr what i do is this:

1) Transfer Mp3 ringtone to flash drive
2) take flash drive to friend
3) friend opens flash drive and transfers ringtone from flashdrive to Memory stick
4) Friend puts memory stick in Dell Axim
5) I make my Razr Discoverable for 60 sec
6) Friend uses bluetooth on razr to find and connect to my phone
7) Transfer ringtone to my phone and im done

DANG!!! That's to much work for a ringtone...I'll just enjoy the iTunes then. LOL If I find a way then I'll inform you and see if you can simplify your procedure. LOL

Thanks buddy!

Re: Can I use MP3 as ringtone in the SLVR?

its easy to do...press (on phone):
Menu - settings - connection - USB settings (set default conection to Memory card). Exit out to the main phone display.
Use the USB cable that came with the phone and connect the phone to your computer.* The display should say "defualt connection connected as storage device"
If itunes starts on your phone, just hit exit.* Go to my computer and your phone should show up under "devices with removable storage"
Double click on it and it will open up into 2 folders "itunes" and "mobile" Double click mobile, and put the mp3 file you want to use as a ringtone in the folder called, oddly enough, ringtone.* Disconect your phone, press menu - my stuff - sounds.* Press menu - switch storage device - select card and your mp3 files will be there.* Highlight it and you can either move it to your phone, or select it as a ringtone right from the card.
It sounds more difficult than it is...really.* I try to keep the files to less than 30 seconds in length, and i try to keep the file size low.*
Hope that helps!

Yep I tried that already but after reading your post, I guess that I should lower the size and length of the audio (ringtone) because when I select transfer to phone it says that "Not Sufficient Space".

Thanks I'll try it now,
