    Advertisement



    I have a BB 8700c and it won't play the MP3's I DL to it, I sent the same file to someone else and it worked on his phone, does anyone have this similar problem and is there a soluiton. Note: the poly's I DL work fine.

    I don't think it plays MP3 ringtones.

    Oh ok. I wasn't sure since some devices can't play them.

    8700's can. I have found a lot that will not play on mine. I am guessing the file has to be formatted correctly. It is odd if it played on one 8700 and not another. Are you able to play other MP3s and just not this one?

    Re: 8700 wont play MP3's

    I figured it out, you have to make sure "at least on the 8700c" that the frequency is at 44000 and the bit rate at 128 when you rip the mp3 file from the cd, then I use avvenue.com to access my pc from my handheld and DL the file and hit save. You also have to make sure that the song is made to 20 sec's by using a wave editor to shorten it. All this with the help of "TrinyBwoy". Good looking out dude!

    All 7130/870X models can play mp3's as ringtones. From what I understand, 64KHz is the max recommended on the sampling.

    Re: 8700 wont play MP3's

    I cant speak for BB, but most phones I have ever put mp3's on as ringtones will only play up to 64kbps, mono, and doesnt matter too much about hz, but 8000 seems to be the best. Im betting the BB is the same, def. mono since it doesnt support stereo or dual channel. I use this to convert my ringtones...Dbpoweramp converter, workds great, and its free.

    Re: 8700 wont play MP3's

    I use the dmc audio cd input that comes with the dbpoweramp to rip the cd's and I just make sure that the settings are as mentioned as above in my previous reply, for the 8700c no conversion is needed. And as for the stereo setting, I leave it as is, still works fine for the BB 8700c as to save any conversion trouble. All these settings are tested and they work.

    It will only play mp3 as ringtones.. Miniringtone is an awesome software, it's not free but is well worth the 18 buck!
