    Setting ringtones on my Telus Razr V3c

    First of all, load any mp3 or mp3's you wish to use into your phone via MPT, once you have transferred the mp3's close MPT and start up BitPim, Then using BitPim go into the "filesystem tab and delete the files "MyToneDB.db" and "TmpTneDB.db, reboot your phone and then assign ringtones.
    The option in BitPim to delete the two files is greyed out. Is that because my phone is locked? If so, how do I unlock it?


    Uh, that would be right click delete. (Mac user. can you tell?)

    I think by default BitPim is set to not allow write operations (to save you from destroying your phone). Check in the program options, there should be a way to activate write operations.

    Hi Talus,

    I am very new at this game so please be patient. I launched BitPim (latest version) and after few tries I can see those files but I am unable to delete them. What amI doing wrong?

    Toru,

    Thanks for the sugestion. After some more tries I did manage to delete the two files but the MP3 files that were there still don't work as ringtones. Anything that was there from factory works fine. Anything that I added with Motorola's software shows in the directory and plays but cannot be applied as a ringtone.

    All of this leads me to my next pondering. It clearly stated in the Motorola's tools that you can add your own ringtones. Would'nt that be false advertising?

    I am getting very annoyed.

    My understanding (not my experience) is that if you delete the two .DB files in the root of the filesystem and restart the phone (power cycle) then all music files in /motorola/shared/audio should be included in the list of available ringtones.

    I don't do it that way, and never have.

    I was just pointing out that BitPim by default has write operations disabled. It looks like you are past that though if you have successfully deleted the .DB files.

    From the Telus Mobility website:

    Coming soon
    Original Motorola Mobile Phone Tools V4.0 For RAZR, Create your own ringtones, customize images and download screen savers, Synchronize your calender and phonebook, Connect to the internet, send and receive emails and SMS text messages


    If you bought MPT from Telus to put custom ringtones on the phone, I suggest you call Client Care and ask them about it.

    This reminds me of the Kyocera Desktop Phone software. It would allow you to upload ringtones - monophonic only. The phone supported polyphonic ringtones, shipped with some and could download them from Telus, but the desktop software would NOT upload polyphonic files.

    I finally tracked down technical support at Kyocera Wireless and they told me the software was designed that way to prevent customers from putting polyphonic ringtones on the phones without buying them from the carrier.

    They could allow MPT to upload ringtones that could be used by the phone, all it would have to do is insert a sample of Madonna saying, "What the *** do you think you're doing?" in the middle of each one.

    Yes I was. Corrected my bad habit and all seems fine now. It is funny that Motorola will use one way of assigning ring tones in one handset (V551) and a different way in another. So much for standards.

    Thanks guys for the patience and understanding.

    Will this work for Verizon... I've actually been trying to follow Mie_Venture's instructions http://www.v710.org/mark/ and kepp coming up short... Will try your way next but I can't put any MP3's in the Sounds directory using BITPIM... get an exception error. Can put files in other directories like RINGTONES (with no error) but never see the tunes on the phone...

    thx, works like a charm....

    by the way, is there any way to adjust the volume of the mp3s? i find they are a little low....(even with max volume setting on the phone)
