Hi Guys
I just got the Sanyo 7400 which is awesome. I have some midis online I want to use as ringtone,s on my old TX95c I could just surf to the midi and it would download and so on, but on this phone if I browse to a midi file on the web directly, nothing seems to happen. Any ideas, or tips on how to get your own MIDIs into the phone?
cheers

OK I've found out a bit more about this
You can make mp4/m4a ringers from mp3 or wave files (see http://www.sprintusers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54271) but I think I have to send it to my phone via SMS rather than just try to browse it in the web browser (which just tries to display the file directly). Is there a free service that would let me send m4a files to my phone in New Zealand?
cheers

OK, what you need to do is:
1. Go to http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/
2. Enter the song name in the description field in the "Upload Images, Sounds etc" area
2. Click the "Choose File" button next to the word "Filenmae" and select your Midi file
3. Leave "Send to" blank, and click "Upload File"

Your file will upoad and you'll be taken to the http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/upload.php page where you'll be given a Jump code

1. From the Sanyo, go to Web and browse to http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/jump.php
2. Enter the Jump code from the web page and press Go

This should transfer the file to your phone where you can save it as a ringer

Good luck, let me know if you get stuck

Oh, you can do this with jpegs too, and if you go to http://midlet.org/ you can get java games as well and upload them the same way...

Hey Pr0f

any idea if it's possible to isolate about 10-15 secs of a cd track that i'd like to use as a ringtone?

I can send you the cd track if you have any ideas on how to do it but you'd need to be on hispeed as it's 6 or 7mb ( the whole track....)....

Thoughts?

Cheers

Hi Shaggie
Just use an audio editing program like Audacity (free from http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows) to edit your audio to the right length, then upload that to your phone. You might need the LAME plugin from that page to be able to export as mp3. The Sanyo doesnt accept mp3s but it does accept mp4s. I have a copy of the phone upload source code at my site, www.digitalus.co.nz/SMS/ that has been modified to allow mp4 uploads (the original site doesnt). So you can use a program like QuickTime Pro to turn your mp3 into an mp4 (see the link earlier in this thread) and the jump code system at my site to upload it to your site...
cheers
