Ring tones. How create and install on phone? LG phones Lg 4500, how create ringtone?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Joe Donaldson, Jan 31, 2004.

  1. I have a few MIDI and WAV files and such. I think we are out of luck
    on the WAV side of course, however is there a way to convert a MIDI
    file for use on my LG 4500 without my buying the data kit? Not being
    cheap..be happy to pay someone to convert a few for me. Or perhaps
    there is a way yo send the ringtones for inclusion in the phone.
    Novice at this.


    I have a new LG 4500 phone I am playing with at the moment.
    Thanks, Peter

    Also want to install some photos for the contacts. Not sute how to do
    this as well. The user manual could be better.

  3. Need the cable and software from Verizon. Then you need to follow
    these instructions taking note that you need to go to the Treetab
    view. It does work. Problems I had was having to restart the program
    you also need to download BitPM (search for it). I also have a problem
    with ensuring that the volume of the Midi is loud enough. I do not
    have a program to make that louder as of yet.

    Subject: Bitpim. wallpapers and ringtones THIS WORKS. Thank you
    Wick_Carl



    You can thank Wick_carl our latest moderator for most of this.

    HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOADING WALLPAPER AND RINGTONES TO
    YOUR VX4500 PHONE.

    First use the datacable and drivers that
    comes with the vx4500 Mobile Office Kit that comes
    directly from Verizon. $39.00. If the store does not have
    it in stock they will ship it directly to your home or
    office fedex 2day free shipping.

    Install the USB drivers that comes with the Mobile
    Office Kit. Verizon does not have the vx4500 listed
    as an option so select "ALL OTHER PHONES". You do not
    need to install the Mobile Office Software if you are
    planing to use Bitpim.

    Download Bitpim 0.7-test3 (or the latest test version available)
    from the following link.
    http://bitpim.sourceforge.net/#download
    If you have a previous version of Bitpim YOU MUST
    DELETE the data directory for the old version. The
    instructions on what to delete are on page linked
    above. From what that instruction page says "YOU WILL
    BE SORRY IF YOU DONT DELETE PREVIOUS VERSION DATA
    DIRECTORY"

    We tested the windows version on WinXP so that is all
    we can speak about here.

    Install the software. We tested using both the vx4400
    and the vx6000 settings and it didnt look like it made
    any difference. I used "AUTO" for the com settings
    and it worked fine for me. If it doesnt work for you
    further instructions are at the bottom of this
    message.

    At the top click on "VIEW" and make sure there is a
    check next to "VIEW FILESYSTEM" this will add the file
    system tab to the sotfware.

    Click the "FILE SYSTEM" tab, click the "+" sign to expand
    the file system. If you get an error right click it
    and try refresh. I get an error sometimes, just try
    again. Once you get the files system to view:

    To add wallpapers scroll down to "BREW" and click on
    the "+" next to it. This will expand the brew
    directory. Scroll down to "SHARED" and click on the
    "+" next to it. Right click "SHARED" and select "FILE NEW".
    A window will pop up so you can choose a file
    from your hard drive. (at this point you should
    already have downloaded the wallpaper that you want to
    send to your phone in the ".bmp format 120x131
    resolution".) When you choose the file you want in the
    popup window it should automaticaly download to your
    phone.

    Ringtones go in /User/Sound/Ringer. I have used midi
    polyphonic ring tone files, I have not tried mp3s.

    After transfers are done, disconnect the phone and
    power it off and on..your files should be able to be
    found in the media option in the menu.

    Avoid deleting files on the phone with BitPim, use
    the phone to do that.....BitPim programmer's note
    there.

    PROBLEMS SELECTING COM PORT
    Click on Bitpim Help
    If Bitpim Help doesnt work for you try the following.
    If using auto does not work to find your USB port try
    the following.
    you MAY need to verify what port the OS is
    communicating to the cable on...and yes, I believe it
    is communicating to the Prolific chip in the cable not
    the phone. My computer/properties/ports. Check this
    with the cable plugged in. If you don't see ports,
    Prolific USB to Serial Comm Port the drivers are not
    installed correctly. Take note of the com port,
    COM6 for me. Start up BitPim, edit settings, set the
    com port to the correct port.. it was COM6 for me.

    THANKS
    GREG

    BitPM at: http://bitpim.sourceforge.net/
    use BitPIM 0.7-test 3 link (click on Available).
    You may have to play with Com Port settings. Auto did not work for me
    and I had to set to COM4
