    I bought a ring tone from verizon. It was sent in a text mail. I can't figure out how to set it as my ringtone. also, i downloaded ring droid, but i can't figure out how to record songs and stuff.

    I did the same thing this morning, what you have to do is bring up the text message from Verizon, press and hold the message until a box opens, then press "save', then go to the music player and select the song ringtone, press the "menu" button and press "save as ringtone".

    I have been able to save the .mp3 or ringtone directly from the text as a ringtone. But yes it will work either way.

    No luck here doing it that way, no option for "save as ringtone" directly from text message.

    Do you use stock sms, or do you use handcent or chompsms?

    I dragged an MP3 from my laptop into the sim card and it came up as an option in the regular settings menu for default ringtone...

    for ringdroid to work the song has to be on the sd card 1st. i been using ringtone studio to make them then send to my sd card. but the ringtone studio is a software program i bought yrs ago. but its the easiest way to go

    Thanks for this info! I was driving myself crazy trying to figure it out. I was able to press and hold on the text message and then selected "save as ringtone" then went into settings-sound & display and selected the ringtone.

    Press and hold message then "Copy attached to SD card". Then open "music", Ringtone will probably be under "Unknown artist". Press and hold selected song then "Use as Ringtone".
