    Hi. Had my original motorola droid for a couple years now, will upgrade soon. I've lurked once in a while but rarely join forums to keep internet footprint low.

    Had a weird problem last night that MIGHT be fixed so for the moment I'll just ask that since I no longer seem to able to set a song as a ringtone from "google
    music" now that it is "play music", what is the best way to do that now.

    Hello and welcome! Glad to see ya registered ;)..

    I don't think you can set a ringtone from Google Music as that is music is not stored on your SD card or phone storage...you would only be able to set what is availabe in storage...if I am mis-thinking, I apologize upfront...

    Thanks.

    The music is stored on my card. Maybe I'm remembering how I originally did it wrong?

    You can use the app "ringdroid" to trim / create a ringtone from your music and then it will show up in the options ringtones - you can apply by contact or in phone settings, sounds...

    Yes. That's what I did and it is working for now. It didn't work last night.

    Had a weird problem last night where my ringtone (standard song) and notification sound (made with ringdroid) both disappeared. I had these in seperate folderswhich were then put in a media folder. Oddly, the songs in the alarms folders were still there and working. I seem to remember originally setting the ringtone straight from google music by long pressing and found out last night I no longer could. I set up the folders originally just so I could use songs for my alarm. I connected my droid to my computer and saw the songs were still in the folders, they just didn't show up on the phone ringtone or notification sounds menus. I added the song to the ringtone folder again and used ringdroid to make a new notification tone, also used ringdroid to make a new ringtone. They showed up in the menus but would not play, then they disappeared again.:angry: I tried this 2 or 3 times, also tried removing battery a few times. Tonight ringdroid worked, I just hope they hold this time.

    After all this, I wondered why I couldn't set a ringtone by long pressing a song in google music anymore and if there was another way to do it straight from the phone since that doesn't work anymore.

    I actually had to reset them again last night. Fortunately, they didn't disappear this time and I only had to re-select them. I think I just need a new phone. I was going to get a nexus but am waiting a couple of weeks to see whats coming. Hoping the S3 comes soon and to Verizon.

    I think the S3 on VZW would make a lot of people happy. Not sure what the latest rumors are though.

    May give up in a week or so and go with nexus. Has the speaker improved any as far as loudness?
