This is what I have done and it seems to work. Create a Ringtones folder on your SD card by using your computer. From the Apps market, download Astro File Manager and Handcent SMS.. I download ringtones from Phonezoo on the computer. It sends them to your phone as a link. Go to link and download from phone. Open Astro and find the Download folder. In the folder is your ringtone. Copy it to your ringtones folder. Open up Handcent. Create new mail.. Hit the menue button on phone to attach audio files. Done!! Seems like a lot, but doesnt take long. You can also go back into Astro and delete Downloads to free up space
I've had my Droid for 3 days and thought I'd add some ringtones from my own mp3's.
So I went to Myxer as I have done with my previous phone (EnV).
Upload my tunes, edit and send to my phone. Easy.
Well, turned out to be a frustrating afternoon. The text was delivered without a problem, but I couldn't find a way to save the tune.
Here is what worked for me:
Open the text with the tune and do a long tap on the side of the big "play" arrow. Options will pop up.
Save as ringtone.
You'll find your newly added ringtone at the bottom of the regular ringtone list.
On my Voyager I used to be able to send the ringtone as an attachment from my email or use phonezoo..On the Droid phonezoo comes up as a link and i have to download directly from the website and gmail doesn't work...So, now I have no idea how to send a ringtone to someone else ....
I thought I could do this:
I clicked attachmail app and then found the ringtone..chose gmail....and then put in the phone number @vtext.com..though that won't work...
you can get handcent for free from the market, its a sms, mms ap. go into the settings and increase the attachment size to the max. it will send the smaller ones then but any large ones youre just out of luck. you can email them but if you want to recieve them you cant save the attachment from gmail.
Handcent sends up to 1mb now and if you want to download the app called "attachemail" you browse to your ringtone or song with that app and it uses your gmail account to make it happen.
I've sent up to 18mb files with that.
