If you have successfully transferred the file to the phone (the Tones folder would be logical choice), then it will appear in the list when you browse the folder. Play it first to check that the phone can play the file.
Then follow the process to set it as your ringtone, either via Profiles or Settings.
Phil - Thanks for the info on how to set MP3s as ringtones, i have converted them to M4A and sent to phone via bluetooth but still no luck. Any further advice you can give would be much appreciated. Thanks Tullulah
tullulah - you cannot set mp3 files as ringtones. The way I managed to do it was by using iTunes and converting mp3 to the m4a format. Then transferring to phone via bluetooth. The phone only allows DRM protected music files to be set as ringtones.
Surely 7280 is a real nice mobile. I bought it purely for the contrast look - it really surges out of all the rests. BUT PITY, VERY PITY,as I may put it, my 7280 freezed as others!! - all you have to do is to "RETURN" it to "update" software in the machine. But why on earth does NOKIA not upgraded software in the phones before selling them? Why selling them faulty and make a mark on the nice Brand "Nokia"? Quite disgusted to have to make trip to Nokia shop and waited for 3 days for this.
I brought this mobile phone recently i think it's a great modal but complicated,i think i'm dumb enough to buy it when i don't even know how the hell to use it,anyway it's great but very very hard to use i need a miracle to get my money back i need a nokia,i love the nokias they are very easy to use i tell you now DO NOT GET THIS PHONE IT KILLS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
I love my 7280. The screen has froze a couple of times but nothing major. Once you get used to it txting is easy and so is number entry. But the best thing about this phone is that i havent seen anyone else with it yet and i love answering the phone in public as everyone is curious as to what it actually is. Just one thing how do you set downloaded MP3s to ringtone, they just go to gallery and there is no option to set as ring tone. Please HELP

This is supposed to be my back up phone for my p910 but I have used it EXTENSIVELY. It is a well thought out phone that an INTELLIGENT person can appreciate, its not just a gimick phone. Truly a great all around phone that has an awesome 'Predict a text' for when you send out MMS/SMS messages. 100% happy.
somebody can tell me how make calls with this phone,it´s very complicatted no?
listen, guys and girls. i'm a dude, and i have a phone like this, the exact nokia 7280. i mean; it's flawless! there are no other phones that can even be compared with its glory. and not to mention all the impressed looks you get when you pull it out your pocket to answer. they all ask; "is it a mp3 player?" THIS PHONE IS THE BEST THING NOKIA EVER MADE.
DO you guys remember pokemon? you probly do. the reason why i brought up that unforgetible anime was because that cus i really think that if there was ever to be a Pokemon in the shape of a phone THE 7280 would be it. truthfully, ive used these phones at the nokia academy and i wasnt impressed atall. what a pile od junt! 7280 I DONT CHOOSE YOU !!! thumbs down.
Now, if your a fan of Hillary Duff/Lindsay Lohan movies and the likes, you can have this phone. Its glitter over substance, because the best thing that you could do with this phone aside from hrowing it out your window is looking at it. Or you can hang it around your neck and turn heads. But when you start thinking of actually using the phone, it would be better if you would just borrow someone else's. Nice design, Nokia Engineers. But poor specifications.
True beauty comes from within.(",)
It may look flash but thats all you're paying for-why have this when you can have a nicer, more powerful phone for cheaper?! It reminds me of a bug. :) xXx A phone for chavs.
alas! nokia finally released a true fashion phone. i mean its a real head turner.. everything in this phone is carefully studied for example the leather on the side is used for easily sliding the phone open since its too glossy. the navi spinner is a great innovation and fun to use. the flashing lights and lines really compliment to the phone's design. this is a gorgeous device. remember this is not intended for everyday use. its like a show off phone to friends and classmates. its quite expensive too, but knowing you will get all these features, then its money well spent.
Does anyone have a 7280 that doesnt freezes? if you do, where did you bought it? and the ones that have phones that freeze, where did you got it? i really like this phone, but i dont want it to freeze. thanks
Its reaaly bad guys... dont bother. it took me nearly 20 minutes to reply to my mate's text msg. u have to turn the little wheel and it is delayed so you end up going past the letter u want its a NIGHTMARE STAY AWAY!!!
This phone supposed to be a second phone, like a phone you take when u go out..but since i got this phone i never used my other one..This is the coolest phone ever..Ok it is a hassle to type in messages but u get used to it..it works with tmobile, cingular and other gsm operators in usa. it just works awesome, im totally in love with my phone..
umm.. it wil take u a month typing your message, espcialy f d message is long... all i can say is dis phone is a hassle.. but it looks nice...
I live in Colorado, US and want this phone, but I read nothing but bad things about it. Can someone give me a straight answer on the phone and options? Is it cheaper to buy overseas or can I get a good deal in the States? Does it work with T-Mobile GPRS in the States? Thanks for all your help, folks.
