    BB Solution: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    Advertisement



    What you will need: (my personal favorites)
    Limewire (to download songs)
    dbpoweramp converter (to convert songs)
    windows sound recorder (to cut songs)
    coolservice website (from pc to upload ringer to web)
    wap.coolservice.dk (from phone to download ringer to phone)

    First you start with the song you want to make a ringer.
    Open dbpoweramp and at the top you will see converting 1 file to and choose wave in the drop-down box. Choose 8bit, 8,000hz and 1 'mono'. Choose convert.

    This will allow you to open the song through windows recorder. Usually start menu, programs, accessories, entertainment and sound recorder. Once open you choose file then open. You then search for the song you just converted.

    Once open you play the song until you reach a spot that you want to have as a ringer. When you get close you can fine tune by pausing and using the little slider to get to the exact spot you want the ringer to start. Then you will choose edit and delete before current position. After that you will go to where you want the ringer to end. Usually less that 30 seconds. Then you can fine tune again with the slider and choose edit and delete after current position.

    Once you have done that you can adjust the volume if you want, this is under effects. You can play with this for your own personal taste.

    After this you need to go to file then save as, and rename the file.

    Once done you need to open dbpoweramp converter again and find the converted wav file and open it. You then choose converting 1 file to mp3 (lame). The channel needs to be set to stereo, the frequency can be set up to 48,000hz. The bitrate can be set to anwhere below 192kbps, anything over that has been distorted for me. Then choose convert.

    Go to the coolservice website and upload the file to the web using their free uploader. Then it will give you an id # which you will use when you visit the wap version of coolservice from your BB, and plug the id in where it asks you. Your ringtone will play on your BB and you can then click the trackwheel to save it to your phone. If the ringtone does not appear in your list please adjust the frequency or the bitrate.

    I am available by pin, Yahoo Messenger or BB Messenger if need-be. Good luck and happy ringer making!

    PS. If anyone needs me to add or delete anything above please let me know.

    If you would rather request someone else to help you with the ringers check out this thread... http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...st_thread.html

    Re: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    Very good info. Also use "power mp3 cutter" I've cut mp3's as high as 192kbps bitrate and no less that 128kbps. The quality is thus very high on BB.

    It's not free but the trial is limited to 60 seconds only. You only need around 30 secounds for ring tones

    You can download a sample here OTA on BB:

    I will add some more to Cp's how to as with all our tips together this should help users alots.

    Re: BB Solution: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    I got it to upoad after trimming it from 512 to around 500.
    I can't upload to my phone because the browser doesn't support the format. This won't work for a 7105t...I am guessing

    Re: BB Solution: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    Could you try a different browser. Use the Wap Browser. To the best of my knowledge the 7105t does support mp3 ringtones. Has anyone else successfully used the above steps. Are they helpful? Thanks.

    You can change the emulation mode while you are browsing. My Internet Browser is set to be my wap browser. Go into options while in your browser and choose openwave (wap) see if that works. Also try changing to other emulation modes. Good luck.

    Re: BB Solution: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    Unfortunately just found out the 7105t does not support mp3, but it does support adp ringers. Which sound like mp3.
    Here are some sites to get adp...

    Re: BB Solution: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    just got the 8700c and have been trying the various howto's i've found here. Tried the dbPowerAmp and really like that tool but it still didn't do the trick. i can load the file in the browser but nothing but clicks with audacity and not even that with dbPowerAmp.
    I have the file that was converted with dbPowerAmp using the helpful hints in this thread...
    i uploaded it to jim.d.andrews dot googlepages dot com /rings

    Anybody have any ideas?

    You could try to change the settings of the ringer...adjust the kbps and hz.

    Re: BB Solution: How to convert mp3 ringtones

    When you convert the ringer try to use different settings. I would help you with this but my BB doesnt support mp3 ringers.

    Try this by hydn....

    Also use "power mp3 cutter" I've cut mp3's as high as 192kbps bitrate and no less that 128kbps. The quality is thus very high on BB.

    Download here

    It's not free but the trial is limited to 60 seconds only. You only need around 30 secounds for ring tones
