    I just got an LG VX6000, and read somewhere that it's possible to email midi files for use as ringtones. How exactly do I do this? Do I just send a regular email to my phone with the midi attached?

    Thanks.

    Yeah you can do that with the VX6000 but you have to send it as a picture message. send it to [your mumber]@vzwpix.com

    Also I noticed that the original screens are animated. I tried sending myself an animated gif but it wasnt animated when i got it on the phone.

    I have that same question running through my mind... I was thinking it might be a animated gif but you already tried it... :-\ not much left to try except maybe an mpeg movie or something, which i highly doubt would work, but i'll give it a shot...

    Outlook Express also works. I know someone said it works through the Verizon site but it never worked for me.

    I found the easiest way to send a midi file to the phone is to send an email from the phone to my yahoo account.

    Then just respond to my email and attach the midi file. Basically your number @vzwpix.com

    !

    To answer that one question about the GIF files...the problem is that every picture file sent to the phone is automatically converted to JPG. If you send a GIF file, the first screen of the file will be converted to a JPG. The phone's built in animated screens are, I believe, .BIT files. I'm not too familiar with this type of extension, but I believe thats what the phone uses. Hope this helps!

    kld359...

    This website (MIDIBuddy) is an excellent place to start finding MIDI's. You'll probably want to trim them down to 30-40 seconds and for that you'll need a program called PSM Player. Available at:

    http://www.samsunghandphones.com/midi%20to%20mmf.htm

    Once you have the desired MIDI file, simply attach it to an email. Address the email to yournumber@vzwpix.com and remember to include the area code (ex: 5554443333@vzwpix.com) If the PIX message comes through, just save the sound from the options menu. If you get a message saying you've recieved a PIX message, call up Verizon and tell them to activate picture messaging. Just know that without a plan, messages will cost you about .25 cents a message. Good luck!

    you can also send more than one midi at a time in the email and then save them all on your phone individually really saves time
