    Thumbs up Got it Done! You are the man...

    THANKS,

    I got it done via (belkin) bluetooth thanks to your AWESOME pictoral. This is how ALL REAL ANSWERS to questions or "how to's" should be posted. Just a hint to other gurus.

    The important part was knowing just which "folder" to put the .mp3 into. btw.

    NOW, shouldn't we be able to plunk into the right folder; a better browser, like mini-opera?

    The ringtone trick was really nice, but I also really NEED to back up my contacts... I assume that one of those folders has all my contact info in it... and a bit of re-jiggering might yield a database?

    WHY DO THEY "HAMSTRING/enfeeble" THESE PHONES? Answer = Greedy phone companies. Proprietary money grubbers. I should have known they would limit everything worthwhile about this phone. I can NOT even find a proper USB data cable for it. Or a software that supports it (except to a limited extent BITPIM). It's kinda like I should not have bought an "exotic" car, but rather a "toyota." And by "toyota" I mean motorola razr. At least that moto-flipper phone has decent software...

    Thanks to "spikemorales" for his superior post.

    There must be some c rack for BREW, and some way to tether this thing too.

    THANKS again "spikemorales"

    Cea

    Thanks!

    The video was awesome! I can finally customize the ringtones on my r410.
    You can also do it with the samsung usb cable, that's how I did mine.
    I just hooked the phone up to the computer and set the ports to usb instead
    of bluetooth and followed everything else and it worked perfectly.
    Thanks for sharing this with everyone.
