    Ok based how midi and audio both work this makes no sense, but my friend has a LG VX6000 (verizons one cool phone) and he can use mp3s as ringtones as long as he changes the .mp3 suffix to .mid before he sends them to the phone. This makes no sense, i know, but has anyone tried this with the Treo600? I would myself, but I don't have a data plan and have no way to get the ringtones up in the normal fashion.

    I tried a test MP3, converted the extension to mid, but no it downloads the file, but does not let you open, or manage it like other mid's.

    Is there such a thing as a MP3 to midi file converter? Is one cheap? Free?

    I've seen some programs that claim to do mp3 to midi conversion, but they usually only convert one channel. The problem is that MIDI is not a sound file at all, but a set of instructions for the computer's synthesizer (sound card). That is why the same MIDI file can sound dramatically different depending on the sound card. An mp3 will sound the same regardless of the sound card because it is an actual sound recording, made up of a complex audio waveform - which makes MIDI rendering difficult.

    Just to clear up any confusion, I meant to say I changed the MP3 extention, to .mid, as the first post suggested.
