    Okay, Group...I have my 700P, now (and my wife broke down and bought one, too ); and I love it, but I have two problems.

    The First: I like Ringtones. However, as a friend pointed out, anyone in the Ringtone Business must be directly related to Beelzebub. So, rather than buy(or "rent") someone else's trash tones; I figured I'd buy a converter.
    So...I did. I purchased the Joy Ringtone Converter (and then found out that I immediately had to purchase the Upgrade, in order to make AAC files...congratulations, you slimeballs. ) I took the song I wanted (Hakuna Matata *G*), and edited it to the piece I wanted, and converted it to AAC, but my Treo won't recognize the file format; and won't load it onto the PDA.
    Now, the User Manual says that it can use ringtones in MIDI, QCELP, AAC, and AAC+ formats. The tune plays fine on my computer with Media Player. I wrote Joy Ringtone Customer support, with the expected result (insert sound of crickets chirping. )
    Did I make a bad choice of Converter program? Is there something else I dneed to do?
    I saw some mumbo-jumbo on here (for the 700W) about changing the extension to another format, etc...but that doesn't seem to work on my 700P.

    Thanks in advance for any help! (On to post #2...)

    I've used MiniTones (http://mytreo.net/downloads/details-1053.html) to make ringtones from mp3's that I have on my SD card.

    MiniTones can be unstable and corrupt the tones to where they crash your phone. I and others have had problems like that. Try the ringtone uploader on www.funformobile.com. Its how I got all my aac tones uploaded.

    if u want that ringer asap , upload the mp3 file with the 30 sec part u want and i will make for u

    i use audacity to chop down mp3 file and add effects (free) and use itunes to convert to aac format...to get file to phone, the easiest way i would suggest..go to sprintusers.com and click on tab that says focus, put your number and upload the aac file and it will send to your phone as a text message then u download and it appears where all the rest of your ringers are

    simple simple, i have tons of ringers

    thumbs up for fun for mobile

    Thanks for the info...I tried using Sprintusers.com to upload my AAC file...but Sprintusers wouldn't take it, either (it says it only takes JPG, JPEG, PNG, QCP, MID, M4A, GIF, & PMD files. No AAC, no TXT.

    Any other ideas...or am I missing something?

    Use the ringer upload tool that was previously mentioned at www.funformobile.com. In fact there are tons of aac ringtones available for free there. Re-read the previous posts.

    Well, apparently, the problem was in my Desktop loader...because Funformobile worked great! (also tried Audacity...*great* program, and free!)
    Thanks for the help, Everyone!
