Press and hold message then "Copy attached to SD card". Then open "music", Ringtone will probably be under "Unknown artist". Press and hold selected song then "Use as Ringtone".
I'm having the same problem as a previous poster - when I press and hold on the text message, I don't have a 'save' option. I've tried it both on the stock sms and handcent. I've tried copying the attachment to my SD card and I have the Save MMS app that I used to save it.
How do I get it to show up under ringtones?
If you press and hold the text message and don't get the Message option "Copy attached to SD card" it may have gone directly to the card, depending on the format of the ringtone. Look in Music, Artists, Unknown artist, and see if you find it there. Then press and hold the ringtone and you should get the option to save as ringtone. Let me know.
Ok, so I just got my Droid Eris yesterday. I've done everything that has been stated here and it doesn't work for me. I too downloaded a ringtone from Verizon, saved it to my SD card using the steps stated here but when I open it in the music player and hit the menu button nothing happens. No menu pops up at all. Also, if I click and hold on the mp3 in the selection window the only options I get are play or add to playlist.
In addition, I downloaded ringdroid and when I try to play the mp3 from Verizon I get an error msg "The application Ringdroid (process com.ringdroid) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
I was doing it wrong. I was holding down the play button instead of the empty space next to it. Now it works great!
I have the exact same problem now as I have the latest DROID 4 model which I think is the newest and most current of all the models made by Motorola. I just came back from a 1 hr workshop at a local Verizon store and spoke with 2 different managers who were basically too busy and preoccupied to be of much help or assistance as they had other priorities than helping me! My plan is to go the actual store that sold me the phone initially and have them walk me through the steps and procedures regardless of how simple, involved, or time consuming the answer will be. The users guide by Motorola is way too vague, general, and irrelevant as it doesn't really go into much detail about resolving super technical and tricky problems. Like they say, the difficult ya do in a second but the impossible takes 7632 years and by that time, the battery dies too quickly when you're barely 27% of the way through the puzzle! I get tired of having to recharge the thing every 4 or 5 hrs. Motorola should have made a battery that lasts for days, not hrs. maybe we are better off with Indian smoke signals as a form of high technology. (just kidding of course but ya know what I mean, eh)
