Go to, 'Settings', 'Phone Profiles', 'Edit', 'Voice Call Ringtone', then select the sounds folder, then pick whichever folder your mp3 are stored in and select the mp3 you want.
It's the same process for messages.

iPhone envy, 04 Jul 2008I've read here in gmsarena that the F480 can't play the videos from, let's say, the N95 8gb.. ... moredunno why, but indeed they do not play, also video from Nokia E51 and E65 do not play on this mobile.

I also use 8GB mem card ( you lucky I can answer all your questions ) and here the reaction time is very fast. the MP3 player is really good and the screen quality perfect. However as said in the Arena test already, under sunlight you can not read it at all. If you do not want a classic shaped mobile, this is for sure an option. Additional good thing is that the mobile came with desk charger and second battery.
SMS is as on every touch screen mobile slower as on keypad mobiles, but far better than the Prada ( I own the Prada for almost 1 year ). Conclusion can be, yes this is something amazing good, but if you want to sms day and night on high speed..... consider a keypad mobile. I am happy but my sms speed is not that one that will break world records
Someone how owns an f480 or f488, please help me out:
How's the user interface? How's the speed? I've heard that response is really slow... is this true? And If you hook it up with the 8gb micro sd, does it really slow down?
How's texting with the f480/f488? good? bad?
Help!!! I can't stand this anymore.. i want one but it's not here yet! :(
Hi there everybody! Just bought this phone on monday and i find that the battery really don't last long!! must charge everyday!! is there something wrong with my battery? or is it just like that??
Appreciate your time for reading this.
I've read here in gmsarena that the F480 can't play the videos from, let's say, the N95 8gb.. is this true? Why is that?
What video formats are supported by this F480 anyway? Aren't the video formats the same for those taken by the N95?

How do you compare the user interface of the F480 with that of the iPhone? I still can't decide whether to get the iPhone or this one.. Hope you can help :)
