    I used to have a Treo 650, and a Treo 700. Both of them had a very nice Treo ringtone, which after many years, I really want it on my current phone, a Touch Pro.

    I've been scouring Google and treocentral, treonauts, and so far I have only found the Treo 600 mid ringtones, classic and regular. The problem is, they sound much worse than the 650 and 700 treo ringtone, and I really want that, which is possibly an mp3.

    Not exactly sure where to post a request like this, but assuming since many of you have treos, hopefully the newer 650,700 or 800 series Treos. Can someone please post the Treo series of ringtones? I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Weird, those are also midi. There are no mp3 or wave file versions?

    Nope, on the 755p, there's 5 mp3 ringtones, but those are all really crappy songs: "Happiness", "Mirror", "Mueva", "PostBoogie", and "Progress".

    If it sounds horrible on your newer device, that's probably just because midi playback can vary depending on what you're playing them back on.

    Right, maybe a Windows based Treo has them in mp3?

    This is the default Treo 800w ringtone. This has the Windows 6.1 operating system in it. I just got the phone, so I assume it is as up to date as possible. I know it is not an mp3, but it sounds kinda cool.

    Thank you.

    Its the exact same one as the Treo 750p. Wow, I guess the 650 must have had some wierd MIDI player, because this sounds very different than the Treo ringtone I had on my Treo 650, both on my PC and on my HTC Touch Pro.

    Maybe my Treo had a bad speaker, and I always heard it wrong?

    Its because the Treo and you PC have different midi libraries so it uses different sounds

    I too was nostalgic for those ringtones, and used my Perl skills to extract the mp3's from my Treo 650's HotSync prc's/pdb's.

    Enjoy!

    Are you sure the Dropbox link is to the 650 files?

    The 650 didn't have MP3 ringtones as far as I know (certainly not by default) ... also the default Treo ringtone(s) in the dropbox are nothing like the original GSM 650 Treo ringtones... rhythm the same but these are far more "enhanced". Some of the names are definitely not 650 default ringtones...

    They sound like the Windows Treos that came later?

    This is likely because the MIDI sound font library that your computer uses is much better quality than what was in the Treo. I am wondering if it is possible to find the sound font that the Treo used, or one similar. Or to see if I can extract the sounds a different way (maybe use the Treo to convert it using its own sound font?).
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.
