Hi there

I've been looking around this site trying to find an answer to my question, couldn't find it so have decided to start my own thread in the hope I can have this answered.

I have just been given a Palm Treo 650 by Telecom, and after listening to the ringtones that come with the phone, well, they are startng to annoy me.

I looked on the Telecom website to see if I could download some new ones, but the Treo is not listed as a phone that you can download anything from.  Is there somewhere else to download ringtones from.  I thought Telecom would be convenient, because they would just put the charges on my bill but nothing is ever as simple as it should be. 

Regards and hope someone can point me in the right direction.

mRing lets you use MP3, WAV and MIDI files as ringtones on your Treo 650.
Not sure how much help that will be but it's one option.

The PDA devices on Telecoms 027 network, do not support the platform Telecom use to deliver ringtones and wallpapers and games etc.

The good news is, that there is loads of software around for PDAs to manage, adjust, and personalise ringing, most of which run rings around the average cellphone.

There may also be a number of free solutions.

But I feel your pain, sometimes its just easier to give an existing supplier your business, even if the cost is slightly higher.

Welcome to Geekzone, and well done on searching the forums first! Many dont. I dont recall a Palm ringtone thread for quite some time if at all.
