I had a Motorola SLVR forever and was real good at making it do what I want with P2KTools and Motorola Phone Tools. MPT was great, it not only synced contacts but transferred anything like photos, sounds, music, whatever, back and forth between phone and computer. It also Let you do and see SMS messages and manage contacts.
Now I have a Verizon Droid X (Wow, is this really a phone?) and I got the wireless setup with ES File Explorer app that is really cool for moving files between the computer, but anytime I connect the USB cable, I get this super noisy Verizon web page wanting me to install some sort of crappy Verizon software on my computer. I am very reluctant to do that, sounds like adware to me.
Motorola Phone Tools did a lot of cool stuff, it took big mp3 songs, let you chop them down with fade in/out and reduced the bit rate to like 56K, perfect for a ringtone, and let me upload it to the phone, then I could select it from the SLVR menu.
Although I have uploaded quite a bit of mp3 music to the Droid X, nowhere in the ringtone select menu does it allow for importing other mp3, wav, or any other sonds. How can I get my own ringtones on a Droid X please. This one has me stumped and, no, I do not want to pay for ringtones.
Thank you very much.
