    Will someone help a newbie with a ringtone issue? My wife just got a Treo 600. I created a short cut from Baghdad Caffe and saved it as a Cool Edit Loop (.cell), not knowing how else to save it and finding nothing in the manual.

    Can someone tell me, using Cool Edit what format to save a ringtone in? How long does it have to be/can it be?

    Finally, and most important, how does one import it into the phone?

    Thanks for any and all help,

    Win

    From what I understand, you can save it as a .pdb file and hotsync it directly to your 600, or you can save it as a small .mid file and either download it to yourself from the web, or e-mail it to yourself.

    the other thing you will need is a ringtone manager, such as ringo or tcringer but neither of them have released versions yet for the 600.

    or if you are adventurous you can use palm midi desktop to put the midi into your system midi sounds file. but the ringtone manager software should be available soon i would think based on demand/brisk sales of the 600
    Change is a challenge to the adventurous, an opportunity to the alert, a threat to the insecure.

    Hi aaron,

    I m confused. TreoEssentials.com has many many ringtones for download directly to the Treo 600 via Blazer, and the instructions seem to indicate that this is all you have to do, and no longer need a ringtone manager with the 600.

    However, I have downloaded 3 of them this way, and they all immediately show up in the pulldown menus for ringtones, but attempting to play them results in a reset or nothing.

    Have you tried these?

    Any thoughts on this?

    Regards,

    NateS

    Is the original Baghdad tone you want a part of a wave file?
    If so then its not possible to use as a ringtone. The only type of files the treo can use as ringtones are standard midi files with the .mid extension. A wave file clip of a song can never be a .mid file. Now if this song is a midi song then you can use it.

    I was searching for the "Hey Ya" ringtone (again) and found 3GUpload's site where you can upload your ringtones, screensavers for safekeeping, like a locker. The site has the Treo 600 GSM for T-Mobile with phone compatability reference. When you register, the question lean towards "marketing" age, occupation, etc. I don't know the relevance with such personal information to getting ringtones(??) but I signed up and also on the registration page you can choose T-Mobile / Treo 600 GSM in the drop down menu.

    YOU MUST HAVE INTERNET ON YOUR PHONE TO DOWNLOAD RINGTONES

    There are currently two methods for receiving files for your phone. A text message should arrive at your phone shortly so you can try method 1.

    Method 1:

    1. You receive a text message from 3GUpload.com
    2. You can extract the URL from the text message and Go To on your phone.
    3. This logs you into your locker, from there you can download your files.

    Method 2 :

    1. Open your wap browser on your phone to this address: http://www.3gupload.com/wap/
    2. Enter your login name and go into the menu and choose the login option.
    3. Click an item that you would like to download and it should ask you to download it to your phone.


    I also found *my* Hey Ya ringtone.

    Nate, I've used many of the Treoessential ringtones without error.

    Midi files are easily used by emailing the file to your Sprintpcs email (or whatever email you use). Once the email is retrieved to your phone thru an email program that supports attachments, like Snappermail, all you have to do is click on the attachment and the midi will be downloaded into your ringtone database.

    If you don't wanna use email to download the file, you can upload your midi to this website Sprintusers Focus. A link will be sent to your phone, you follow that link and download the file. Piece o cake!

    Secondly, you CAN use midis without a ringtone manager. However, if you have old ringtones from your Treo300 that are in pdf form, you will need a manager to use those.

    Did some experimenting on my own today with a random midi site. Just e-mail any small midi to yourself and open it with your Treo600 sounds option. It's automatically put into your collection. No ringtone manager needed.

    What's the difference between emailing them to yourself, and just downloading them via Blazer as the treoessentials website suggests as one method? I just downloaded mine.

    They showed up immediately in the tone list on my Treo, they just didn't work - maybe too large?
