    Alltel's new phones don't allow Mp3s for use of ringtones, unless you buy them from Alltel. Is there a program or a download out there to bypass or disable this function?

    Find what phone you have and do a search on these forums or Google.

    So thats it? They are just phone specific ringtones? I assumed it locked out all mp3s regardless of phone format. Thanks for the info, I will try it and see what happens.

    There are unlocking instructions specific to each phone.

    So in a similar vein, I want to move some ringtones manufactured thru itunes to my samsung hue. I tried unsuccessfully to transfer an mp3 to it via blutooth, tried to use the data cable, and got the mp3 transferred successfully, but then the phone told me it wasn't a supported type of file(mp3). So what type of format do the ringtones need to be in? midi? wav? mp3 unlocked??

    You have to buy it more than likely. Do a search again.

    Downloaded ringtones, ordered from the internet, are supported if AND ONLY IF Alltel is listed on that site as a carrier that is supported by that site. I just looked and those sites don't meet that criteria. Sorry.

    You don't like this, blame Congress. They passed the DRMA
