I'm frustrated and need help. I recently switched three lines over to sprint from another carrier. My old phone was a motorola and because I have no use for internet at this point I only needed phones that were easy to text with and could act as music players of sorts. I purchased the LG Lotus, the High Note, and the Rumor. The problem is that none of these phones allow me to use my personal collection of music as ringtones. Am I doing something wrong? I tried converting a clip thatI created using my motorola program to an aac file but it is not letting me play it as a ringtone. I am not trying to steal music. I only use music from cd's which I have purchased at local stores. Sorry but I dont see why I should have to pay for music twice! I feel like this is just another way to get moremoney out of customers.I am seriously consideringswitching back to my previous carrier since I am within my "30 days" and they carry phonesthat are more customer friendly.I have been to my local sprint store twice and they havn't been able to help. Does anyone have any suggestions. Thanks for any help you can give me!
I had the rumor and just switched to the LG Lotus. I know on the Rumor, I could make my own ringtones. They had to be in the Sprint QCP format in order to be recognized for the phone. I haven't tried sending any of the ringtones to the Lotus yet.
Thanks for the info! Do you know of any programs and possibly where to get ahold of those that would allow me to transfer my audio files to the sprint format you mentioned? I tried using a free download by switch that allows you to convert wma or mp3 to several different formats but i don't find that one in the options. From what i read i think acc+ is supposed to work too but i am not sure where to find that either. Does LG have a program like the one i mentioned for the motorolla phones that anyone knows about?
I bought it from Target about 3-4 months ago. It was some generic ringtone program. Cost around $9.99. later on tonight i'll find the program and get the actual name for you.
The program is called ring factory. You can download it for $9.99 at ringfactory.net. You can make screensavers also. When you are done editing your ringtone, you have to save it in the QCP format. That's the usual format for ringtones for all the Sprint phones I've had so far. I did one just before this post and was able to send it to my phone and assign it to a contact. I use songs off of my own cd's.
Hope this helps!
This would probably work for all your phones, but I only know this will work for the Rumor, because that's what I have.
The Rumor can make MP3 files into ringtones. Just upload your mp3 to the website: http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/index.php. Make sure to enter your phone number. It'll text the ringtone to you.
Based on what I saw on The Ring Factory's website, this is probably doing the same thing only it'll save you the $9.99 (rumkin.com is free).
Hi. I followed the steps from the website and received my text and it would not let me download because it said I do not have enough memory. What can I do? I have the Rumor.
Thank You In Advance
