only if they're close by (my guess) :biggrin:
I am unrooted, although I doubt that would make a difference. If you are trying to send it to another "smart" phone, you could download the app "bump" on both phones and just share it that way. Sorry, I don't have much else to offer.
HM, I clearly know how to email, not sure if you knew that or not.
I'm trying to figure out how to do something very basic I could do with other phones. It's Droid Does not Droid Can't so just figure out another way.
My friend has no idea how to transfer anything to her phone or use email on her phone but she does know how to buy and make peoples ringtones their ringer when they call.
I guess thanks for the help, but no thanks?
Step 6 is wrong, there are no 2 options. It goes directly to a screen that lets you pick system ringtones and that's it.
Rooted BB1.0 Latest Handscent updated today
He asked you how far you get through those steps, just because YOU can't see it, doesn't make it wrong.
Now, that being said, handcent does give this functionality, why you aren't able to get to work is the problem we are having at this point, considering everyone else can use it the same way.
Yes, this is a common problem with this phone AND Android in general. It was designed poorly and needs to be fixed so that a basic function can be used on such a smart phone.
BB v1.0, is that 2.1 or 2.0.1 based? If I remember correctly the option they are talking about is 2.1 based, so if BB v1.0 is 2.0.1 based, your out of luck.
The email trick is what many people have used in the past to get ringtones off their phone and to other people. If you friend is a VZW customer, you can email them the ringtone, but it comes through as a text for them.
XXXXXXXXXX@vzwpix.com (Replace the XXXXXXXXXX with phone number and it's best to use the area code too).
If all these options don't work, we can keep plugging at it.
Haha ... for what it's worth, at least we figured out how far along Phaze got (even if his reply wasn't exactly in the right wording) No worries ...i can see where my question / procedure was a little redundant / frustrating
Phaze - try this (either using Astro or another file manager utility)
1) On your SDCard, create a folder called ringtones (maybe even place it inside another folder called media .. so sdcard\media\ringtones ).
2) Locate and copy the mp3 you wish to send
3) Paste the mp3 into the newly created ringtones folder.
4) Try sending the audio again via Handcent - the audio file in question should be in the list you typically see
* You can, of course, do the above using your computer too by first mounting the usb connection, and once your done copying the file, unmounting.
I just figured out another way, I couldn't download Handcent for some reason. It's kind of a back and forth thing but it worked. I downloaded a ringtone on Mabilo > share, then emailed to myself. Then I texted it back to my phone, then forwarded it on.
downloaded it on your pc?
Go on the Android Market look for "Hoccer"
Then get your friend to download it and have fun transferring.
I have a question. On my stock Droid using the stock messaging app, when I hit menu, then attach, I only get these options:
Why do I not see Music?
Ok so I wanted to wait to do all this till I loaded a new rom. Now I have BB froyo 4th version just came out other day. Loaded handscent and still same thing, no choice box or anything just goes right to default ringtones.
I did the above using root explorer and it does not work and its not in the list
I am so lost how everyone but me gets this fabled "choice" of music or ringtones...
thanks for help
Okay, from all that I have gathered, you HAVE to have set a default within Handscent, that is the only explanation I see. Try this: (I know you said that you have done this earlier, but give it another go doing exactly the steps provided)
1) Press the menu button.
4) 'Manage Applications'
5) 'Handscent SMS'
6) 'Clear Defaults'
a. If given the option, also 'Clear Cache'
This should give you the Music option back.
IF for some reason this doesn't work, just uninstall Handscent and reinstall. Hope this helps.
