Hi I am just wandering that if anyone that has been buyin the realtones from Vodafone live thinks that the tone sucks? I mean they only say a few words and it gets repeated, I am a huge Kelly Clarkson fan and I downloaded Because of you and all thats in the ringtone is Because of you I never stray too far from the sidewalk and then it repeats its self, compared to Telecom where they just play the whole chorus of the song.

I can fit 10 seconds at good quality into the "realtones" used by Sharp, Samsung and others that support SMAF .MMF

About 25 seconds at high quality with others (nokia, Sony-ericsson etc)

PM me your number and tell me what song you want and i'll chop it and whack one together for you to show they CAN sound long and good!


Some phones do indeed have a restrictive limit but it's still AT LEAST 10 seconds.

Telecom use a format similar to the latter - AMR at simlilar bitrates.

Telecom use a format called QCELP which I can also provide (at Telecoms nasty WAP cost, about $1.50 -> $2)

I think Kelly Clarkson was lucky enough to be my test song too. (since u been goooo,oo,o,o,one, i can't wait for the firrrrrrrst time, I'm so much in love, yeaaah yeaah, thanks to you, now i get, what i waasaaa,aaaaant....... since you been gone.? is that her? It was my ringtone for a couple of weeks.)

I love using whatever bitrate mp3 I want on my Apache :-) oops sorry thats a bit mean isnt it.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Thats almost misleading advertising there. Most phones are capable of repeating a ringtone if it reaches the end of it so there isn't really an reason why they should do that.

ANYTHING from "Musiwave" is of poor quality, their Polyphonics are TERRIBLE best avoided,

They do all the realtones for vodafone and most of the polyphonics, ya know the ones that only run for 5 seconds?

I had to buy a new phone as my sharp was thirsty one day.

I wouldn't recommend any ringtones from operators portals unless you are really needy of them. They are extremely expensive (in my opinion).

I'm sure most people here on geekzone just download them and bluetooth/cable/ir/mms/email etc etc etc them to their phones.
