Version 9 of Easy Media Creator included Xingtone, a stand-alone software for creating ringtones, as part of the Suite. Version 10 no longer include that application.

Find out the requirement of your cell phone as to the file type and other specs of a ringtone. You can experiment by using the Sound Editor in version 10 to create a short audio clip based on that spec and email the edited clip to your cell phone.

What phone do you have?

EMC 10 will transfer audio/video files to almost any portable device.  You have to know what format ringtones are used by your phone and if ringtones must be in a certain folder on you phone.  Most newer phones use mp3 or wma files -- but not all.  Some phones will take an audio file anywhere on a memory card and use it; other require that the ringtones are in a special folder.

Phone use different methods of transferring.  I can connect mine with a USB cable and transfer the files. Others are blue tooth enabled and can transfer that way.  Still others require you to purchase ringtones and download them via a wireless call from the phone vendor (typically Verizon).

If you have your manual for your phone, it should give you all the information.  If you post what phone you have, perhaps I can give you more help.

Xingtones never worked well and was never needed for some phones.  I tied it once and got rid of it.  I'm glad Roxio didn't put it in EMC 10.  It was jsut a hassle.

Do you have EMC 10?

And the answer to EMC 10?  Sometimes people don't have the program and just post anywhere. unsure.gif  Let's assume you do have EMC 10.

Your phone will take mp3 files as ringtones.  You can connect the phone to your computer via a USB port.

The following are the instructions in the Help files:

You can create ringtones from existing audio clipsósuch as your favorite songówith the Quick Sound Editor.

<H4 class=pHeading3>To create a ringtone: </H4>
  1. In Media Manager, browse to the audio file from which you want to create a ring tone.
  2. Right-click the audio file and choose Edit with Quick Sound Editor.
  3. If necessary, display the Trim & Fade view by clicking Trim Fade.
  4. Move the play head to the beginning of the section you want to use as your ringtone, either by clicking Preview or by clicking the waveform.
  5. Click Set Start.
  6. Move the play head to the end of the section you want to use as your ringtone.
  7. Click Set End.
  8. Click Create Ringtone.
  9. Specify a file name and location for the new file, and click Save.
  10. To exit from Quick Sound Editor, click Close.
<A name=wp1194736>The ringtone is added to the All Music > Ringtone Smart View.  

In step 9, you may have to put the ringtone in a ringtone folder on your phone or memory card for the phone to use it.

If specifying a folder on your phone won't work, open Music Disc Creator, pull the music file from the folder (add music) and then select send to portable device.   That control will be grayed out until your phone or card is recognized.  You'll probably end up with several location options so chose the one where your phone says ringtones are supposed to be located.

If the above doesn't work,  just use Windows to copy the file to your phone or memory card.  Windows will see you phone/memory card as a portable device.  This is the way I do it.

If you still have problems, contact Blackberry or your carrier.  

BTW, the Blackberry site is the most obnoxious one I have ever visited.
