I have a wav file sound that I want to add to my W375, what file type do I need to convert it to for use as a ringtone?
I cnnect this thing usb style then it makes the connect sound and ask for drivers. then it disconnects while installing or looking for drivers.. can some one help ?
It's a priti good phone. I got it in December and hated it for about a week, just because I was expecting something a little bit better. But at the end of the day, it has turned out to be a cheap classy phone. It has about 1mb of space that I've not been able to gain access to, even though I've tried and tried. I don't know if games are downloadable on it either.
i m using this handset, this isperfect one., but it should bluetooth and expandable memory
Drivers were not required for x64 Vista, and I assume x86 vista too.
i really love this phone. i've had it for a few weeks. no bugs. i called customer service early on, and they were helpful. calls are routed to south america. the pay plan of net 10, which i use this phone with, is perfect for me. the phone is sleek and expensive looking. i have a black one. the camera can take nice pictures up close. i would like better keys, they are hard to press.
As I wrote yesterday, you do not need drivers for PC connection, only for USB charging. I'm not going to type it all again, scroll down a few posts for all the information you will need.
Does anyone know where to download the drivers for PC connection? motorola site was useless
does anyone know where you can download the drivers for pc connection - motorola site is no help
mobail is good featurebut its costly prize.
should be decreasa rate of this mobail.
i got this phone about 3 months ago for net10. I am in the USA, it seems everyone who bought it is having a problem with connecting it to the pc. I've tried everything, but it will not connect, even when i install a driver and follow the directions as stated by the person below me. For some reason, ppl who bought the phones in other countries (UK, Australia, ect.) can sync it just fine, but us here in the United States can't. O well
Just to clarify, this phone's memory is tiny (you only have 500kb, that's right, half a MB to play with). So while this phone is capable of playing mp3s, you won't even fit one whole song on it. And the memory is not expandable, which is ridiculous really. But the FM radio is handy (even if I prefer to listen to AM it's better than nothing), and tiny memory aside, for the price this is a great phone; call quality is especially good & I have had no such problems as others have reported with battery life. GPRS means you can check email & stuff on the move too.
If you want to charge via the USB, as I stated in my previous posts, you'll need the driver. You do NOT need the driver just to connect to a PC, but make sure you connect directly, not via a hub.
You DO need a driver to charge via the USB, you can get the driver here:
and my previous post (read down) tells you how to install it.
You CAN put mp3 ringtones on the W375 and they sound great. As stated here, the memory is tiny so you must be clever.
Open the mp3 you want to use as a ringtone in an audio editor (Soundforge/Audacity/Nero Wave Editor) and cut the song down to the best 20-30 snippet. It's only a ring tone, you don't want the whole song as you'll never hear it as a ringtone. Then NORMALISE it and save it as 40kbps mono mp3. The resulting file will only be around 100kb & certainly small enough to transfer. It's pointless using higher bitrates for better sound quality as the speaker, while pretty good, won't play at a higher quality than this anyway.
With regards to problems connecting through USB, make the the phone is switched on, on the home screen, idle with the flip OPEN. It will never connect with the flip closed. Then connect your phone DIRECTLY to your PC, (not through a USB hub as some won't work) then wait. It will ask you if you want to connect as USB device, select yes. It might take up to a minute for the phone to connect. You'll know it's connected when the screen on the W375 goes white with some black text that says: "In storage mode, no regular phone activities can be done." Then go to MY COMPUTER on your PC and you should see your phone showing as a virtual drive (MS DEVICE) along with your C, D drive (or whatever other drives you have installed). You can transfer photos from your phone's pictures folder to your PC (so you can delete them from your phone & free up much needed space) and you can also drop small mp3s (as outlined above) into the music folder.
Once you're done, on the phone select Multimedia/Sounds/External Storage Device, and you should see your mp3. Hit the centre key to see a menu where the top option is "Apply as ringtone".
Also, images you transfer from your PC make much better wallpaper & screen savers that photos you taje on the VGA camera & really show off the decent screen on the W375 to good effect. Once again, making the file size as small as you can will help you not fill up the phone's tiny memory too quickly.
The W375's charger connects to the phone's USB port, and you can charge via the USB, but not as standard. You need to go to the motorola website & get the driver, which seems a little odd as most phones with a mini-USB port will happy charge straight out of the box. And, once you've got the driver, it isn't immediately clear what you're supposed to do with it (it's not an exe file), so here's some help:
Create a new folder on your desktop (doesn't matter what you call it) & download (or copy) the driver from the motorola website to this location. Then connect the W375 via USB directly to your computer (again USB charging doesn't usually work it you try to use a USB hub). At the bottom of the screen you will see a balloon that says "New USB device" - click this balloon then select the "Have disk" option, then click "browse" to select the folder you made & put the driver into. It might take a minute or 2 to install the driver. When complete, disconnect the phone. The next time you connect, and get the option to "Connect phone as USB device" select NO and hey presto, your phone is charging via the USB port. This is pretty complicated, and prevents you from using the USB charge to use any USB port on any computer you might be close to as the computer MUST have this driver installed in order to charge. The driver file is tiny though, and you can store it in your phone for installation onto other machines once you've worked out how to.
Email me if you have any questions by all means!
