Whatís the problem with most ringtones? Well, besides the fact that they cost a lot of money, and you get so comparatively little? Most purchased ringtones fail to capture the essence or meaning of the song that you choose to be your ringtone. You may not even be able to find a ringtone that highlights the portion of the song that you wish to play when certain people call you. Now, you have the ability to create your own ringtones for free. You can create custom ringtones that highlight any portion of any song on your playlist. You donít even need a new phone to create your own ringtones. You can use a used cell phone, refurbished cell phone or an old phone that you wish to put back into use.
PhoneZoo: Making It All Possible
First, you need to sign up for PhoneZoo. Itís a very quick and easy process that involves following some simple directions. The most important part is to be sure that you enter your cell phone number correctly. If there is one mistake on the number, you may end up sending ringtones to someone elseís phone.
Add Music Files
PhoneZoo has a huge library of free ringtones that you can choose from, and it also gives you the option to create your own ringtones. To create your own ringtone for your used blackberry, simply upload the song you wish to use as a ringtone into the PhoneZoo audio editor. All music files smaller than 15MB will be accepted by the system (Most songs are less than 5 MB, so you should have no trouble). Once uploaded, all you have to do is edit your ringtone and deliver it to your phone.
Getting Your Ringtone
There are several ways that you can transfer your ringtone from the website to your phone. You download the ringtone directly to your phone using a wireless internet provider if you have internet service on your phone. If not, you can download using the Bluetooth network or a standard USB connection. If you have any trouble, see the ďhelpĒ section on PhoneZoo.
Setting Up Your Custom Ringtone
Now, itís time to set up or install your ringtone. Since the set up varies among phones and service providers, be sure to consult your instruction manual for specific instructions related to your model. Most phones have options that allow you to use the ringtone for all incoming calls or for individual contacts.
Share Your Free Ringtones
If you wish to share your unique ringtone with others, PhoneZoo makes it easy. Of course, sharing is a personal decision. If you wish to keep your ringtone all to yourself, you can skip this option.
