    Ok, I've got a stack of files in My Sounds but I can't figure out how to use them as ring tones. Can anyone help?

    Verizon doesnt want you to use those sounds as ringtones. They want you to pay the outrageous amounts they charge for them (yes i am el cheapo) Here is what i did to get around it. You are able to send a sound file in a picture message from the "My sounds" folder. Whomever you send it to needs to send the message back to you. You will then have the option to save the attatched file as a ringtone. You can also do it pretty easily with a $8.00 usb cable off of ebay and free BITIM software.

    LOL, I have Amazoned a $7 cable and I already have BitPim installed and waiting. I'm a little disappointed that BitPim doesn't use Bluetooth but considering that its freeware...... I can't really complain.

    Maybe I'll try to send the sound file to myself? From my notebook I could drop the file onto the phone via Bluetooth, but its in my music and my Ringtones.

    Thanks for the reply. The cable and BitPim will make it all easy, I guess.

    Like you said, the fastest way is to just send them to yourself using your OWN pix messaging, just type your number in the field, then send/receive and save. Just my 2 cents

    Yes, that solved the whole problem so much easier.... hopefully everyone with similar needs will read this post.

    I bought a microSD, loaded all of the sounds that I wanted and send them to myself and saved as Ringtone. Problem solved.

    With my VX8100, just used bluetooth and bitpim, transferred to ringtone folder. Worked fine with friend's VX8300 as well.
