    Walmarticon has ringtones like:

    We Pay You Very Little To Rollback Prices
    We Are Taking Away All MA and PA Stores
    Walmarticon sells guns to kids (remember that one in 1995)
    We Do Ecomonic Dumping From Time To Time
    We Were Once Ben Frankiln, Now We Buy Them Out!
    We ID You For a Can Of Air To Clean Your Computer
    We Will Be #1 In Mexico Some Day (En Espaņol)
    We Are Not Allowed To Be In agentHibby's Hometown Since 1985

    Extras!
    We Do Help The Community
    We Do Offer Charity
    We Do Help The Less Fortunate

    I know some of these things are NOT true but Walmart is known for doing them.

    Excellent tirade, hib.

    You can grab 30sec mp3 clips in the music section--the samples for CDs you can buy online. Not labelled as ringtones, but great for your phone. They even come with fade-in and -out.

    if the sample is too big for your phone you can cut the sample using the tool suggested here:

    I also use a program called mpTrim. In conjunction with Winamp, I can turn a full song into a custom ringtone complete with fade-in and out. I also use dMC for ripping mp3s off cds.

    Does mpTrim...or can mpTrim, slim it down to like 64kb/sec...so the clip fits on the phone and play's correctly?

    What rate are your mp3 ringtones? 64kb/sec?

    i cut space where ever I can, change it to mono output, lower the sample rate, lower the birate...
    sample rate = between 15k and 22k
    birate = 48 typically.

    use Wavepad ( free for personal use) as listed here:

    http://www.funformobile.com/pages/help/helpHow.php

    it is the best and easiest tool for making your own ringtones ( mp3, mmf, qcp, wave) from your cd tracks, mp3 collections, and free songs from WWW in my opinion.

    I use BitPim to transfer data to/from my phone and it includes software to lower the mp3 bitrate. I usually use 32kbit and 22050Hz mono. And remove the ID tag to save some room. There are all kinds of tools available for this--just get on Google.

    i think you are going to the mp3 sales section of Walmarticon... Go to "CD Store" not "Music Downloads"

    Ok guys, I need help!! My name is Sam (antha) and I have a Samsung SCH-A650 (I'm pretty possitive) and I tried to get a free ring tone from www.funformobile.com so I saved the target, then uploaded it and sent it to my phone, but I was redirected to www.vzwpix.com. Well, I figured how to open it and hear it and everything, but how do I make it a ringtone?? Please help!

    Thanx guys,
    Sam

    If you have the song on your phone, there should be an option to make it the default ringer for everyone or custom for specific contacts.

    Then you'll need a data cable. That's the only way I know how to put music and pictures on my phone.

    I figured I'd give this wal-marticon thing a try since I got the Email working on my phone. I noticed that when I emailed a wal-marticon 30 sec MP3 clip to the phone and applied it as a ringtone it was already reduced to 8k/sec mono. I have a Motorolaicon V551, and my service is Cingular. I emailed it to my phone from a Hotmail account. The question is who, or what resized and resampled the MP3? Did Cingular do it, or did the phone do it? I don't think Hotmail would change the file, just scan it for viruses. In any event I didn't have to do anything to the MP3 clip to convert it to a ringtone.

    Later, Jay

    Verizonicon doesn't like its customers to bypass their channels for obtaining ringtones. They want to charge you to get ringtones. I hear that you can't even transfer tones via bluetooth on Verizonicon phones because of this.

    You can use a data cable just fine for many phones.

    And there are ways to enable BT transfers....
