Xingtone--how to?


Jude

Question

So I have a good, working EC9 installation and I want to send myself an audio file from my computer to my phone (ringtone). I enter in my network, my phone type (it WAS in the pull down menu), my phone number, email address, click on the "I accept" button, and BOOM, it looks like I need to purchase some kind of licence from Xingtone in order for this to work. Anybody experience this error/message?

I know that other people have had the problems also.

 

If you can hook your phone up to your computer using a USB jack, you can copy that music to your phone's memory or memory card directly. Saves you time and $. Plug in your phone and then open Music Disc Creator. If you phone is recognized, just select to "Send to Portable Device" after you have selected the music/ ringtone. Select where you want the music sent. You phone works just like a thumb drive so you can set up folders etc. If you want it to be a ringtone. make sure it is in the proper format for your phone and not too long. If you want it on your phone and it is equipped with an mp3 player, copy it to the phones memory or to a folder on your memory card.

Yeah, I found that rather irritating, since it seemed like it was going to be an easy way to produce custom ringtones without having to make an additional purchase (my 2-year-old phone didn't come with a USB).

 

I imagine there's a bug in the installation, because I don't think Roxio would make a product available for general installation if it wasn't covered under the license agreement. In that instance, I expect it would show up under "extras" or some such.

Unfortunately, I have only the Deluxe Suite on my computer and it does seem to work. I did not go through the full process but did get the program to open.

 

Did you ever have a previous installation of Xingtones on your computer? I remember that being a problem.

 

Perhaps what you have a trial version of the program and if you tried to register earlier, you would not be able to register it again. The trial version allows for only one music file (with several cuts) to be uploaded to your phone.

 

Roxio sales blurb doesn't have much about it. :( Is your phone blue tooth enabled? You can use disc copier to send it to your phone.

Thanks for all the info, but I've been able to add music (and full length movies) to my phone's memory card for a while. What I wanted to do (which I think is a quirky feature of my phone) is assign a ringtone, but according to my manual, the only way I can do it is to put an audio file on a web page, use my phone to browse to that web page, and then d/l it. I can't assign audio tracks from my phone's memory card into the ethereal folder of ringtones, and I thought Xingtone would circumvent it :angry2:

Interesting. If you connect your phone to your computer and then explore it do you see two entries - one for the phone and one for the memory card. If you look in the phone folder, do you see one that is labeled "Ringtones? I would thnk that if you are able to copy the file to that folder, your phone would pick it up.

What phone/carrier do you have? Remember that the ringtone must be in the correct format for your phone. Some are mp3 but others take different formats. (wav, AAC, SMAF, Real, midi)

 

Personally I like and bought but don't use Magix Ringtone Maker 2.

Samsung SPH-A920/Sprint. I love the phone, but adding ringtones looks like a pain (from the A920 forum)

No, I've never had it before. I just happened to notice it on the install menu and thought it might be fun to fiddle with.

The issue I had is similar to Jude's original post: I finished installing it, opened it, then filled out the little form with my phone and email info and selected "Okay."

 

It immediately told me it was a bad install and that I needed a license key.

 

My response was to uninstall and reinstall it, and it behaved the same way.

 

Unfortunately, something in the uninstall process broke EMC 9, so I had to uninstall it and reinstall. This time, I just skipped Xingtones until I can get a firmer answer on what's at issue.
