Re: Activating downloaded ringtones

Make sure you have your device selected at Phonezoo.  My ringtones were sent in a .mp3 format and it worked perfectly.

Re: Activating downloaded ringtones

Could this be the problem: You are stating that you are using MMS. I think I read a little while ago (if I remember correctly) that I am unable to send pictures on my BB because it uses MMS which is not supported by Sprint (my carrier).

 

Are we talking about the same thing here? Is that my problem?

Re: Activating downloaded ringtones

No sir,

The ringtone you downloaded are in the wrong format for the Blackberry to play. They need to be in .wav .mp3 .mp4.

You must make sure the ringtones are blackberry compatible. It doesn't have anything to anything with texting.

Could you take a minute and resolve the thread? Thanks

Thanks,

Re: Activating downloaded ringtones

Aha! I figured it out. When I downloaded the ringtones from Phonezoo to my phone they came as .GCD files. No matter what I did they always came as GCD.

 

So what I ended up doing was downloading them directly to my pc. That downloaded them as .MP3 files. Then I transferred them from my pc to my phone. The phone now recognizes them.

 

Thanks everyone for your help.

Re: Re: Activating downloaded ringtones

Great. If your carrier does not support MMS , then the way you are doing it now is the best way. Glad we could help.
