    Post HOW-TO: Samsung R410 Adding Ringtones (MAC)

    If you have a Samsung R410 from MetroPcs and want to add ringtones than your at the right place.
    I'm going to show you how to add ringtones to your phone, because of rules of the website i can only tell you the program that i used but cannot post any links directing to them.
    Just yahoo or google the program to find it.
    I used a program called Ringtone Maker to make the ringtone just in case you guys want to use the same program.



    Programs Used:
    BitPim (Windows and Mac)

    Hardware Used:
    Samsung R410 (MetroPcs Phone)
    MAC
    Bluetooth Dongle (to add bluetooth, if you have bluetooth on your mac than you don't need this)



    In order to get your msl code you must get your esn number and enter it on the msl calculator
    (ESN Number=11-digit number)
    Link to the msl calculator MSL CALCULATOR
    If msl calculator link down just send me your esn number and i will send you your msl code
    People having a hard time finding the esn just power off your phone, take out the battery, and should be a sticker with the esn on it

    HOW TO: add ringtones to R410 with the USB cable

    People have been sending me messages asking how I got the ringtones on my phone using the USB data cable instead of bluetooth. It is pretty much the same as spikemorales' tutorial, just a few tweaks. Here is the text version of the tutorial of how I followed and did what spike's tutorial said (except without the extra stuff for the bluetooth).

    How to add ringtones to the R410 with the USB data cable:

    1. select on the menu

    2. select on the settings

    3. select on the # key

    4. enter your msl number

    5. scroll down to port map and press ok

    6. go to DS (DATA) and select USB

    7. go to DM (DIAG) and select USB

    8. go to HFK/FTC and select NULL

    9. plugin in your USB cable in your pc

    10. connect R410 to USB cable

    11. open up the BitPim program

    12. select view on the menu tab and select view filesystem

    13. filesystem should appear on top of the t9 editor and below log (will appear on the left side menu)

    14. select edit setting on icon menu (screwdriver and wrench icon)

    15. on phone type select drop down menu and select OTHER CDMA PHONE

    16. select the “/” folder and give it a sec, reading phone file system

    17. phone file system should load

    18. select brew foler

    19. select shared folder

    20. select ms folder

    21. right click on ms folder and menu will pop up and select new file

    22. locate your ringtone on your computer and select open

    23. ringtone should begin to load onto phone, just it a sec

    24. ringtone should show on your ms folder

    25. right click on ms folder and menu will pop up and select reboot phone (reboot required)

    26. with USB cable phone will remain off and begin to charge, turn phone back on

    27. select menu

    28. select multimedia

    29. select my sounds

    30. select your ringtone and select options (listen to ringtone to make sure it sounds good)

    31. select SET AS

    32. select ringtone

    33. RINGTONE SET and select ok

    34. that should do it [=

    Special thanks to spikemorales for the original tutorial with bluetooth for adding ringtones to the R410. Hope this helps!

    When adding ringtones with the USB data cable, sometimes it will appear that BitPim does not recognize the phone. Yet, if you are able to view the filesystem folder you should proceed with the rest of the steps. This happens to me as well. After you add the first ringtone and reboot the phone, when the phone reboots then BitPim will recognize it. So if BitPim says it does not recognize your phone don't give up just yet. Hope this helps
