    I can't add a Ringtone despite the manual saying you can, I even e-mailed myself the ringtomes and saved them to the device without sucess any sugestions, I used Mring on my old T650 but it is not compatable.

    Thanks

    This is took a bit to figure out but now it is quite simple. I have only done this with the AMR files but it might work with WAV or MID... haven't tried though.

    When you download the file from a server or via email, it asks to save it to voice recorder (the new app that the 650 didn't have). Save that.

    Go into Voice Recorder and in the file menu, there is a an option to copy to Ringtone. Voila.

    You can go into Sounds and change the name then.

    Good luck!

    Midi ringtones can be sent bluetooth (or from websites) and are added to the ringtone database. Wave files can be sent via bluetooth or downloaded and they get added to voice memo. In voice memo there is a selection to copy the sound to ringtones and that add it. Note however there is a bug that the 680 shares with the 700p. Any wave file over 200k gets truncated. You need to keep any wave files under 185k for them to be added correctly.

    The 700p can also handle AAC ringtones but it looks like the 680 can't do this. I've spent a lot of time trying to get this to work and it doesn't.

    Unfortunately its not working for me either. I've been playing with QT Pro and attempting to export 3gpp and it doesn't want to accept that into voice memo and renaming said file to .amr results in a file that doesn't play (on the Treo).

    MP3 files require third party software. No Palm OS device does this natively. I've tried many times to get an AMR format sound to work and never succeeded. The only software I've ever gotten to work has been Nokia's multimedia converter software which only runs on Windows. Palm mentions the use of this software in one of their knowledge base articles.

    Thanks,

    I can't install the program under VISTA but that is another problem! I will have to wait for Nokia to upgrade

    Multimedia converter is awesome, i'm willing to use that extra step (in REALLY does also save memory (usu my wav files get shrunk to just 10% of the original file size)
    Now it's the WAITING GAME: a GSM Palm Pre
    T680 (COPPER) + Cingular = FUN!!
    My T650 & 6230b and NX70 are retired... =(

    Heck all I do is play the ringtone on my computer speakers and record it to the Treo. I've done that since day 1. I have about 20 of them and they sound just as good as if I had downloaded them!!!!

    It's kind of pathetic that the Treo still doesn't support MP3 ringtones natively. Oh, Palm...

    THe best solutions for having custom ringtones IMHO is use the software by the name of calfilter which allows you to use your own mp3's

    Here's another vote for minitones. That, along with a good editor, makes adding MP3 ringtones a snap.

    AAC files are giving me fits. I can install them via SMS, but that's about it.
