    Transferring Ring tone

    Someone sent me a couple of ringtones via text message. I am able to hear them fine but I would like to be able to transfer them to my phone to use as a ringtone. Is there a way to do this? On eo fthe sounds is an mp3 and the other is a wav file.

    I did hold my finger down on the sound file in the text message and I was prompted with a pop up window where I chose "Copy attached to SD Card"

    I donwloaded the app (Astro File Manager) and looked for the file but I cannot find it anywhere. Also, I was only able to choose "Copy attached to SD card" for the .wav file I was not presented with that option with the mp3 file.

    Any tips at all on how to get these into my ring tones would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you look in the download folder?

    Handcent has it's own download folder in it's main folder...

    you can use Astro to move it. Best idea would be to create folders....

    Media
    >>ringtones
    >>notifications
    >>video
    >>pictures

    IMO.....

    Yes I did see the astro download folder but it downloaded the image as a picture instead of a sound and of course it would not open it. Seems like the Droid Messanger is the best way to go to download sounds

    Thanks for the help guys

    Replying to Captianron 19: After you save the wav file to the sd card, find it by going to "Music, Artist, Unknown Artist" Then press and hold and you should get an option to save as ringtone. The MP3 file may have gone directly to the sd card so you may find it in there as well.
