does anyone know if its possible to create your own ringtones and then load them onto any of the verizon phones? is it possible to take an mp3 then chop it up and transform it into a format that can be used as a ringtone? how do you get it on the phone??
im looking to get a new phone for my verizon plan, and im just wondering if i can do this with any of their phones.
Yes you can Google:Mp3 to Midi that will make its midi ...or is it wave lolhmm yea mp3 to wave...guess it wont work sowie its to diffrent one is synthasized beats oter is uhh i dunno people lol
Yes, you can send yourself free ring tones, at least to the VX6000. You can use any MIDI file as a ringtone. Unfortunately the VX6000 doesn't play MP3s ("real music" ringtones) so you are stuck with polyphonic MIDI. But if you search the web, you can find lots of cool midi files. Then you just send it to your phone as an attachment and save the midi file. You may have to use the vzwpix.com address rather than vtext.com for the attachment to go through, I'm not sure.
BTW, the same goes for wallpapers. You can send just about any JPG file to your phone and save it as your wallpaper. You DO need to use your vzwpix.com address (I just tested) so the same probably holds true for MIDI files.
As for games, unfortunately I don't know but I would like to find out!
ya I have a 6000- I was told at the store I could attach files at vzwpix.com and mail em to the phone. turns out only crappy midi files. but modtones dj and sony music box have real songs to d/l. what kind are these and why can't I make my own?>
I just got a CDM-9900 and I am interested in emailing myself some new ringtones. I had heard the LG VX6000 had the capability from the mobilepedia review to just rename a mp3 file 2 a midi and then send to the phone. So far I have been unsuccessful directly deleting the .mp3 and changing to .mid and then emailing to my vwpix.com #.
Any information would be helpful..
What do you thinkof the 9900. My contract is up and that is one of the phones I am considering. Thanks
Thanks for the tip!!!
I'm looking to get a new phone as well (very frustrated w/ my moto v120e! Initially I wanted the LG VX6000 because of the attractive outer screen.).
After looking into several phones, I decided that my main qualification (well, I also eliminated any phone with less than 499 phonebook entries) was that I wanted mp3 ring-tones. For Verizon this limits us to:
Moto A840 (?)
My secondary consideration is to have speaker phone capabilities, which knocks out the LG (although user reviews state that with the volume all the way up, it practically sounds like a speakerphone). Third, I want my phone to have reliable service anywhere I go, so I wanted a tri-mode that could pick up weak analog signals in the foothills or on rural stretches on interstate. This eliminates the A840.
The V260 is basically the V265 without the camera and I haven't seen it cheaper anywhere. So, my decision is down to the V265 and the V710.
The V710 is bluetooth enabled and has the capability for memory upgrades (it has 16MB internal to the V265's 3.8MB). Also, the LCD is bigger and the external LCD is in color and also larger. The camera is ~10x as good (but still not great) and has a flash. Since I keep my phone in a pants pocket most of the time, I actually think that the smaller greyscale external LCD will be more durable for me. Of course the V265 is cheaper too.
Verizon lists the V710 at $420 and the V265 at $170. eBay prices vary wildly, but typical (low) prices for the V710 are around $230 and (inexplicably) $205 for the V265--my target prices were $200 and $150, but after several days of monitoring bidding I'm still empty handed. Verizon is beginning a promotion on the V265 for new users, so the V710 gains points on the hip factor as well.
In the end, I'm prepared to suck it up and give my money to Verizon for the V265. As much as I'd like a V710 with a 128MB memory card (everybody gets to pick their ringtone!), I can't justify the price.
There are any number of programs to convert wav files to mp3 files. CD-Wave http://www.homepages.hetnet.nl/~mjmlooijmans/cdwave/ is a good program for breaking up wave files into smaller tracks. There is a specific format for the mp3 files (16 bit mono?). I understand that you can get around paying to upload them by changing the file extention to jpg, sending them as a picture message, and then changing the file extention back.
My new phone V265 from Verizon comes to 181.38 with tax (shipping included). Now I can stop going to eBay 10 times a day...
PS If you don't care about the speaker phone, analog... I've seen the LG-VX7000's going for as low as $153 on eBay. If you don't care about having a large phone book, the feature search guide at mobiledia.com also returns more than 10 other phones when searching only for CDMA (Verizon) and mp3 ringtones, so you will have to be more specific.
I Don't know what VX6000 phone you are using, but you got ripped off, it CAN play MP3 ringtones. 4 of my friends have the phone.
Perhaps you weren't listening clearly or you were listening to music that sounds similar in midi. It does not supposrt mp3 or I would have it now.

ok mr. Rasta......i now have the phone in my hands....and....WHOA!....it's singing to me.....not JUST melody's, But VOICES!, WOW...i didnt know midi tunes could have voices of people singing....and the current song thats playing is......."Caught in the rain" by Revis....from the "sony music box".MP3, Don't mean to rip on ya....but im not stupid, i know what i can hear, and it's MP3, the Actual song....not only do i know this, for that fact, but becasue my friend and i put Mp3's on the 6000 via Data cable. you obviously have to downsize the mp3 by cutting it to 20 sec. dubbed down mono to 22khz. have a great day! :D
haha well i can't argue with that!!! sons of BITCHES told me they didnt have it or I would have a new phone now instead of my junky old startac with its broken antenna!!!! arrr!!!
hehe oh well, time for a new phone 8)
well mr rasta.....i have been to every site, and only tells me that the 6000 does CMA, and MIDI....so i can see why you didn't know that....but...i also heard somebody say that CMA is a form of MP3, so we might be both right...ha ha. anyway.....trade your startec phone in and get a LG VX7000, i love it, and think it's one of the better phones....besides the Moto V710, the one i really wanted B4 finnaly getting the 7000 because the 710 costs like 3000$ more!
Yeah, I really wanted to get the 7000, but I'm using a family plan, and my sister is at college in middlebury so she thinks she needs analog too (even though her friend with a 6000 says it's fine digital only) but anyways, shes being stubborn so I'm going to wait and see if they release a 7100, or I'll justt grab the 6100 :P
This is what I have been doing, and it works for me. I have Windows XP, an LG VX6100 phone through Verizon Wireless, and I have an active vzwpix account. I am using Goldwave 4.23 as my file editor.
What you have to do is edit any wav or mp3 file, save the file at 22 khz, 48 kbps, mono. After the file is saved, rename the file - changing the extension from wav or mp3 to MIDI...[b]this is very important...change it to MIDI[/b]. Email the midi file to your cell phone via the vzwpix.com site (and have your vzwpix account activated. All you will pay for is the message upload to your phone (something like 25 cents each message unless you have an photo message plan).
It works! 8) The length of the file has not mattered (so far), but I have kept the song clips under 25 seconds in length.
GOOD LUCK!!! :D
There have been some files that would not transfer to the phone through vzwpix....but reducing the clip's length fixed that, so there DOES appear to be a limit to lenth or file size...I'm betting file size. I'm still monkeying with it. In any case, most of my stuff uploaded fine, but filled my memory more than when I downloaded mp3s from Get It Now, so the purchased Get It Now files must be compressed more than the ones I've made myself.
Nope, I was wrong. There doesn't seem to be any benefit to reducing file size, though I do recommend keeping the clips under 25 seconds in length or under 100 KB in file size (by keeping the kps between 32 and 48 ) - simply for the faster upload to the phone.
My problem with running out of memory has nothing to do with file size. I'm limited to storing no more than 20 "picture" messages. Even though these are being sent as midi files, they were sent via vzwpix, so they are stored in the picture message memory.
Anyone know any way of moving them from the picture memory into the ringtones memory?
on my 7000 i have the option to save them as ringtones and then i delete the pix message.
p.s.- because of you, i can now put my fav. ringers on my phone...thank you. i use NERO "Edit Audio", and it works great!
ok, so can anyone give me a walkthrough of this?
I have a few MP3's On my comp and I would like to get them on my phone
i have a LG VX6100
Hi, I have motorola v60 cell phone. Is there any way to download a midi file onto it?
I registered at the site and try to upload midi files and it says they are an invalid type. I tried .mid and .midi and neither work.
I had the same problem! ugh!
i just emailed them to <phonenumber>@vzwpix.com as attachments. Did 4, so got 4 of em for only 25c :)
well i use cool edit pro and make my files into wav. i have to cut to under 30 seconds and bring tht hz down to 2200. it works extremely well on my samsung a670. I got a tone of ringtones on it.
