I have saved 2 mp3 files to my memory card on my LG Rumor touch in to a folder named Ringtones and yet I can't get to use them. Any ideas?

Well if they're not showing in your ringtone list as I presume, did you create the ringtones folder yourself? Your phn maybe pointing to a different directory for the ringer list, more than likely in the phn's memory which cannot be seen from your computer because it's only able to see the SD card. The easiest way to do this, would be to use myxer.com // click "create your own" at the top, browse to the mp3 in question, and upload it. myxer will then format the mp3 and send your phn a text message which will work alot like sprint.com ringers, knowing the specific ringer format and where to put it in the phn.
Are you able to play the mp3 as a song? If so, see if there's a menu option, (while playing), to "set as ringtone", if so, the phn will copy it to the appropriate folder and it will show in your ringtone list.
I have a Rumor Touch also and the same problem. I don't have a data plan, but want to make .wav or .mp3 files my ringtone. How can I do that? Thanks!
I am having a similar issue, I downloaded a ringtone from myxer.com and copied and pasted it into the sounds folder on my phones SD card. When I open the ringtone from my phone it only allows me to play the ringtone, not assign it to anything. I can't figure out how to assign the ringtone!!!!
Ringer Types Supported MIDI, QCELP, MP3, AAC, AAC+ and Video Ringer // Is the file you copied and pasted an mp3 file? If so, and you're seeing in you ringer list, then these steps should apply.
Selecting Ringer Types for Voice Calls
Your phone provides a variety of ringer options that allow you
to customize your ring and volume settings. These options
allow you to identify incoming calls by the ring.
Menu > Settings/Tools > Settings > Sounds >
Ringer Type > Voice Calls
Select Caller IDor No Caller ID
. (A list of ring type
categories will be displayed.)
Select a category, and then use your navigation key to
scroll through the available ringers. A sample ringer will
sound as you highlight each option.
Press to assign a ringer.
As mentioned earlier in this post, myxer.com will send your phn a text for you to download the ringer in the correct format straight to the ringer list, but if you don't have a data plan, then right click on the ringer you pasted in the sound folder, select properties, and see what format it is. If it's not mp3, then you'll have to redownload it, or get a mp3 converter program from downloads.com for example.
When I got my LG I was bummed to find that I couldn't just move my mp3 ringtones from my Razr. What I had to do was convert them to .3g2 files (which are actually video files less the video) and then move them to my phones SD Card using a USB - mini B cable.
Then they could be assigned to a contact as a ringtone. I think there's a YouTube video showing how but it wasn't that difficult.
For ringtones on the LG Rumor Touch, you have to either have 3g2 or qcp file formats.
Get thourough instructions at LG Rumor Touch Hack Central
The qcp has to be emailed to your phone, but the 3g2 can simply be renamed from an mp3 file and transfered to the phone's internal memory.
Its simple and opens a whole new world with the LG Rumor Touch!
