    Extending Ringtone Length???

    Advertisement



    Hey folks,

    I downloaded an MP3 ringtone to my phone. The ringtone is about 40 secs long. The ringtone plays fine when the phone is called, other than it only plays for about 10 secs!! How can I extend the length of time that the phone, and in turn the ringtone, rings/plays for?

    Thanks!

    Have you played the file with windows media player or something similar to verify it's length? I wonder if maybe the data is corrupt after the first 10sec that makes it sound like it's not playing all the way through? The call dosen't go to VM after the 10 seconds does it?

    It's a bug in the BB OS. MP3 Ringers will only played for 10 secs, Pause and start again. As workaround you can convert the mp3s to the aac format.

    My suggestion for converting is switch:

    who is your service provider? the codes for extending ring length are different depending on what service you have.
