1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    My last phone was a Motorola Droid (1) and when I wanted to get new ringtone, notification, and alarm sounds all I had to do was create a folder called "media" and then subsequent folders for each different sound category. I tried directly copying this folder from my old Droid to my Bionic and it works exactly the same. I just figured I would pass said information along for everyone to have at the ready if this is your first Android phone.

    Step 1:

    Plug in your phone to your computuer

    Step 2:

    Create a folder in the main directory titled "Media"

    Step 3:

    Create the following subfolders in the "Media" directory:
    "Alarms"
    "Notifications"
    "Ringtones"

    Step 4:

    Create or place any sound files in their respective folders to have them at the ready for your phone. You can use a program like RingDroid on the phone itself to create tones of Audacity to cut music on your computer.

    Note: if you want a file to be available for a ringtone AND an alarm, it must be located in BOTH folders.

    Cheers

    i don't think this is true anymore since the D1 days. Well, at least you don't need to create the folder MEDIA. I just created the subfolders (like with my dinc and now bionic) and it works.
