Customized Ringtones

FYI - this is a FREE website with tons of different wallpaper and ringtones. (Alert tones and Animated wallpaper also available, but won't work yet on PP). This site is great as it allows you to customize the ringer.

Note: I initially tried totext the ringtone to my PP but it didn't work. So....

After customizing the ringtone, I saved/downloaded it to my computer "hard drive" and then connected my PP and dragged it into my PP RINGERS folder.

Re: Customized Ringtones

How do you download the ringtones? When I try to download them on my pre, they just play as a streaming peice of music. It does not actually download.

Re: Customized Ringtones

You can't download them from those sites to the phone, You have to download them to your PC then drag/drop them into the "Ringtones" folder on the phone.

Re: Customized Ringtones

First week with my new Palm Pre so please bear with me. I downloaded a ringtone from this site to my computer, but it saves as a GCD file, which I've never heard of. Is there any way to save this as an mpeg? It looks like it's not recognized as the GCD file.. any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks so much!!

Re: Customized Ringtones

You have to save it as a MP3, Then plug in your phone to your PC and drag/drop them into the "Ringtone" folder.

Here is a couple ofother ways to create ringtones, One is a program on your PC the other is a web based program.

Audacity is easy to learn how to use.

1. Download and install Audacity:
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

2. Download this file and place it in the Audacity folder:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...shtml?lame_enc
(You will need to unzip this file) This file is to create your tones as mp3s,
they are compressed to be smaller than wav files by ~ a factor of ten.

3. Open Audacity

4. Click Project > Import audio - OR push Ctrl+I

5. Select the file you wish to cut up for a ringtone.

6. Use the mouse to select the part of the song you want to use. (play the song
and find the right part)

7. Once you have selected the section you like, play it to make sure you like
the section.

8. Click Edit> Trim OR Ctrl+T. This cuts off the rest of the file.
8b. If you want to make any of the song fade out or in, select the part in
question and selecte Effect > Cross fade out (or in).

9. Click File>Export Selection as MP3. Audacity will ask you for the file you
downloaded as the LAME encoder. Locate it in the Audacity folder where you
placed it.

10. Save your MP3 file somewhere temporary.

11. Connect your phone, Drag and Drop it into the Rintones folder

The filename you use is the title in the sounds selector.

Note, use small files as much as possible, because audio files can quickly take
up your memory.

Re: Customized Ringtones

I don't understand what you mean by "2. Download this file and place it in the Audacity folder:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...shtml?lame_enc
(You will need to unzip this file)".

I did download the file and it automatically downloads to my desktop.  So I tired 2 things - first I opened the zip file and copied the files into the Audacity folder.  That didn't work.  Then I extracted the files from the zip file to the Audacity folder.  That didn't work.

The directions seem simple enough to me, but I just can't seem to make it work.  Any ideas?

Re: Customized Ringtones

That's all you need to do is unzip it and drag/drop it into the audacity program folder, Where are you running into problems?

Re: Customized Ringtones

I'm running into problems when I try to "Import Audio".  I get the following error:

---------------------------
Error importing
---------------------------
Audacity did not recognize the type of this file.
If it is uncompressed, try importing it using "Import Raw"
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

It's a GCD file, so I'm not sure what's going on.  I'm just not having much luck today.  Maybe I'll have better luck with the ringtone stuff at home.

Re: Customized Ringtones

You need to convert the GCD to MP3, I don't believe Audacity works with GCD.
