According to Alcatel's mobile site.... It is indeed possible to create and use MP3's as ringtones.... But you have to use some software and choose a 20 second section of the song you wish to use.
No, it is NOT POSSIBLE to put any mp3 files as a ring tone. Ypu are only limited to the ones preinstaled in the phone. The same goes for picture files - it is not possible to transfer any files. The reasons for this are due to the fact that the mp3 player (sd card) are seperate from the phone functions.
can i use an mp3 file from the card as a ringtone... or is it possible to put an .jpg file as desktop on my phone? pls answer...
is there a chance to add some mp3 for ringtone purposes through USB? possible to costumize the ringtones?
a few questions: how's the sound quality? does it support playlists? how's the file organization? can you sort by artist/album?
Took a while to find the Alcatel website but found it: http://www.my-onetouch.com/ there's no user guide but there is an MP3 converter and PC Software to download.
People, for all of you trying to use this phone and put music on it, first activate the usb connection on the phone and also check if your memory card is configurated and formated... or else... OFCOURSE it will not work!
The only way to "send" music to this phone is through usb.
this is the worst phone ever!! i tried to put songs on it but it wouldnt let me excuse my french but this phone is CRAP!!!!
Hi... A question please... how can I activate de engineering menu? In older OTs the code was 000000* but doesn't work for this one :(
I got my white colour 'exclusive' OT-E801 from woolies for 19.99 with 64MB card only, which is less than some others. To be fair it says expandable memory* i.e. - memory card required.
how are the ring-tones? and the sms-beep? how is it to write sms's with? i had the ot511 and i loved it. the battery was totally good also after 4-5years (it kept together with electrical tape but still)..are the letters all toghether or do you need to switch language as soon as you want to write with other caracters? if you are not using the T9-function i mean.. can you customize it a lot? and how are the wallpapers? i would so like to know!
The phone is beautiful but I want to know If is possible to put a mp3 to ringtones
I have to admit this phone has an excellent mp3 player. Purchased a cheap 1gb sd card and i am well away. I bought my wife one and liked it so much i had to have one.
I did initially have a problem connecting my pc to the phone, but tried my laptop and it connected. Not sure why this would happen
my phone aint working
i put it into the computer with the usb
i went to activate and the phone said failed
so i downloaded mp3 converter and it still says failed
help me please
had to get the sd card formated. woolworths the gits asked me if i had a friend who had a card reader to do this. does not come with the converter to format the sd card. lucky i found a shop that could do this. still had to make my own mp3 folder to get the mp3s to play. this was an xmas gift for my kid, he was most gutted. got it working in the end. odd how the phone does not format the sd card as soon as you put it in, most things do.
i'm getting my money back this phone is the worst-it don't even do the main selling point (mp3)
well i've found this phone to be the worst i've ever bought-first we couldn't download music & now it keeps sayin sd card not inserted when it is!not good.
