    Having trouble following the directions provided by HTC Mobile Phone Support. I would like to trim down a song and use it as a ringtone for a specific contact. I copied the entire song from my computer to the Rezound. Then I followed the directions provided by HTC below:

    How do I trim an MP3 ringtone? closeThe Music application has a built-in ringtone trimmer. You can trim an MP3 song and set a part of it as your ringtone:
    1. On the Now playing screen of the Music application, press the Menu button.
    2. Tap More.
    3. Tap Set as ringtone.
    4. Tap Trim the ringtone.
    5. Use the onscreen controls to trim your ringtone:
      • Drag the two trim sliders to the approximate start and end points of the ringtone.
      • Tap the left and right arrow buttons to more precisely set the start and end points.
      • The markers show the start and end times of the ringtone.
    6. After you’ve finished trimming, tap Set as.
    7. Then choose whether to set the trimmed song as your Phone ringtone or a Contact ringtone.
    I play the song, so I am in the "Now playing" screen.
    I hit "Menu", then "More" and select "Set as ringtone"
    I only get the option to make it a ringtone for the phone or a contact.
    I cannot find anywhere the option to "Trim the ringtone".

    Any ideas what is wrong.
    Thanks for your help.

    It might be easier just to move the song to a pc and use Audacity to trim the file down.

    Trimming with music is easier than ringdroid. Go to music app. Select a song. Tap menu button on phone. Tap the more selection. Tap set as ringtone then select trim song selection

    But that's the problem. I can't find the "trim ringtone" option anywhere.

    Something must be wrong with the instructions above. I cannot find the option to Trim the song. Could the song be the wrong type of file?

    That's what I'm saying I read those directions and it literally took me two seconds to do it. Took me longer to delete ringdroid from my phone:)

    Thank you for putting up those screen shots. On the next to the last screen shot, I do not get the "Trim the ringtone" line. It only shows the first two, Phone ringtone, Contact ringtone. Can't scroll to see it, it just ain't there.

    interesting. have you done any app updates lately? Any deleting of file? Just throwing some things out there. also, what type of file are you trying to trim? not sure if this thing is limited to MP3 format, but that song I showed you was in MP3.

    Did you try a different song?

    No expert here. Didn't think one had to worry about file types. I've tried several songs with the same result; no Trim function.
    I took a CD, Frank Sinatra's A Jolly Christmas Album, and ripped it to my computer using Windows Media Player. Then I looked at "The Christmas Waltz". The "Properties" on the file show it as a Windows Media Audio file (.wma). Then I copied the entire song to the Rezound by connecting the phone to the computer and dragging the file over according to the HTC instructions. The music (The Christmas Waltz) shows up and plays on the phone. I can set the entire song as a ringtone for either the phone or a contact, but it won't let me trim it. Does it have something to do with the file type? (.wma)?

    I wouldn't think it mattered what file type it was. I was just asking to see if you could maybe try something else. But you said you tried it and it didn't work. Thats odd. You call a service rep up? An HTC rep?

    P.S. I used to live in Silver Spring. I live in Herndon VA now.

    Go back and re-save it as an MP3 file and it should work. I've had similar problems working with wma type files.
