    Hi, I am using a 750v with WM 6 installed. last night, i've installed Treo Alert and it caused my ringtones stuck with 'up down' tone from treo. i cannot change the ringtones to others.
    i've tried to format my phone, but the problem persist. and i've tried to look in the registry, i cannot find any suspicious entry.

    plz help me.. is it possible if i run the rom instalation again?

    I'm not exactly clear on the issue. Treo Alert shouldn't have any impact on your ringtones as it doesn't touch those functions.

    What do you mean by you tried to "format" your phone?

    What happens when you go to "START>SETTINGS>SOUNDS&NOTIFICATIONS>Notifications tab" and change the selected sound for "Phone: Known Caller" and "Phone: Unknown Caller"?

    Also, have you tried holding the stylus on an MP3 in File Explorer and selecting "set as ringtone"? If so, with what result?

    Lastly, have you tried setting a custom ringtone for an individual via the Ringtone field in their address book entry? What result?

    Hi.. thanks for your reply..format meaning hard reset, I've tried to do it twice..but seems like the problem is with the registry.

    i've tried all the trick to assign ringtones, by select directly from file explorer, assign directly for each user, i've also installed mring and try to custom the ringtones by user, groups, etc.. and all of these won't override the system ringtones store in the registry

    last night i've tried to changed the registry value under HKEY Current User>control Panel>sound>PlmORingtone3.. and its works. i can customize the ringtones by directly point the path of the file in my phone.
    after that, i've tried to change the ringtones in the sound application.. it still won't override the entry in registry.

    so the only way for me to customize the ringtones now is through the registry.

    is it possible if i create the new string for known caller and unknown caller in registry? or maybe is it better if i reinstalled again the Rom with the Treo update?

    Hi all,, finally after searching in the registry key. I repair the ringtones problems for known caller.

    The key is under the Hkey current User>control Panel>notifications>Default.
    I've changed the PlmO value to the working registry key in sound string.
    after i changed the value, i can customize my ringtones for known caller in the sound application

    and now i am still try looking for the unknown caller key.. I can't reinstall the ROM since its already the latest ROM version for vodafone.
