    Wink sending ringtones to motorola droid with mms

    Yes...there is a way. You need to download a FREE app called, SaveMMS. Like I said, it is free under the market place. Just do a search under the market place and download it...did I mention it is FREE! This app lets you save any attachment sent via mms.

    Once you have downloaded the app, you need to run it, then it will automatically retrieve any attachments and display them for you to browse. You can save PICTURES and MUSIC this way. Once you click on the mp3 file, it allows you to save it.

    Once saved, go under music, then select songs. Your file should now be there. If you click your song to play it, you can press the menu button (the one with the 4 horizontal lines) and it gives you an option to set as your ringtone. You must set as your ringtone at least once, then it will always be available as a phone ringtone under settings/sound & display/ Phone ringtone.

    ENJOY!!

    sending from phone...start from PC

    My deepest apologies "homemadehitshow"...

    ...sadly, the only way I have found to send ringtones from your Droid is to start from your PC. Read all the way through

    Use a freeware program like Audacity

    Audacity: Download

    if you take a song already on your PC, audacity will allow you to get the 30 seconds or so of that song you wish to use as a ringtone and allow you to export (save) it as an MP3 to your PC somewhere. After you save it, you may want to change it (in explorer) from an mp3 to a mid extension, as this is the common format for most cell's ringtone formats, especially for non-droids...in the event you were planning on forwarding this ringtone to a non-droid cell. Once that is done, use your email from your PC to send a pic msg to your cell, for example, if your cell # is 999-555-1212, email it to: 9995551212@vzwpix.com

    Once you receive it, you have it as a txt msg or mms, and you can forward it from your phone to anyone else's cell. If you forward it to another droid, they must have SaveMMS to allow them to save the song and use it as a ringtone, if you send it to a phone like a voyager, then they can just save as ringtone easy (as long as it is .mid file extension). I like using my pc to edit my ringtones then send em to my cell, this way, I will always have them to forward to my friends, and if I lose them, I can just resend them. I have heard horror stories about people who have downloaded songs, lost them, and have had no way to retrieve them unless they put them in media center or someplace like that. Unfortuneatly, unless someone comes out with an app that makes it easier, this is the way to send from your droid to other cells as a text or mms.

    I tried using chomp SMS and Handcent SMS from the Android market.It works but I get from time to time file size restriction issues.Chomp SMS emailed me saying that the are looking into it.they also said that the SMS provider has limitations on the sizes depending on the provider.You might want to check out those apps.They look like they might have. Some potential as to what you're looking for.

    tunkafrankie, have you actually tried any of that.

    .mid is a totally different kind of file than an MP3. .mid is a MIDI file which simply contains the 1's and 0's to convert a midi processor. MP3 is an audio file, totally different thing. I'd be happy if it worked but it seems very odd.

    Anyone tried mobile17.com for ringtones, lets you load an MP3 and create a ringtone then send it to your phone. Not necessary for droid but useful for some.
