Mobile ringtone are not just for phones anymore. In the past, only cell phones were capable of ringtones, but now even "cell phone" have the ability to play MP3 songs with a ringtone. It is becoming increasingly popular to have custom ringtones for phones. Customizing the ringtone with a name or any other personal message makes it easy to remember and easy to associate with the person who is calling. This also makes it easy for others to identify your phone when you are in public.
Ringtones are not only used on cell phones. Walkie-talkies (which are nothing more than small radio transmitters) use ringtone capabilities to let people know they are being picked up. Police vehicles around the country use this technology to keep track of drivers. The problem that arises here is that these cars contain an FM transmitter in them, so any personal or outgoing call made will be detected. Fortunately, there are products available to prevent the police from having this kind of information.
The first step to make your personal ring tone unique is to find a reputable manufacturer of this product. There are many manufacturers that have created different types of ring tones for many different cell phones. The two most common are the WML and MP3 file formats. While the WML files are the most common, they tend to be the least portable because of the size of the files.
To transfer a ring tone to your mobile phone, transfer it to a computer by using a USB cable. Once the file has been transferred, open it with your favourite text editor and save the file as a ring tone. Save the file in a directory that is regularly used for uploading ring tones. This is especially important if you have a lot of ring tones saved on your phone. If you have to send a new ring tone, save it to the same directory.
When you have a lot of tones saved, it can take a long time to edit them all. You can get yourself a software program that will enable you to edit all of your saved ring tones in just a few moments. Some programs are designed so that the ringtone editor window appears right away and allows you to make changes as needed. Others are very user-friendly so you don't have to wait for a long period of time before saving the file. If you want to edit multiple ringtones at once, it is best to use the software that allows you to do that.
There are also several free online ringtone directories where you can download ringtones. Most of these websites allow you to download ring tones for free, or for a nominal fee. Since ringtones are becoming more popular for cell phones, there are more companies offering them. They will have different file formats for you to choose from when downloading them. Make sure you have the correct file format so that your downloaded ringtone will work with your mobile phones. Once you have the right file format, all you have to do is plug in your desired ringtone into the phone's memory and then load the file to your mobile phone.
