The great thing about the Mot v360v it has a Transflash memory card and a mini usb port.

I use my camera cable and plugs straight into my xp computer and use Windows Explorere to drag and drop my ringtones onto the phone as mp3.

I use various free tools on the web to make my own mp3 files so they are small and compact.

Works great.

sry to be blunt - HOW?

I know nothing of the world outside nokia and this is a big step for me.

also: first reply guy - what? thats not an answer.

can the ringtones run off the transflash card or only off the phone?

Hello

Just plug in your usb cable, xp will say mot v360v and then say motorola usb device - you dont need drivers and make sure in windows explorer

You have to copy from where they are on your pc to removable disk drive ? (windows will automatically set that up) and into mobile => audio

Make sure you can see these folders:  Windows Explorer menu => tools => folder options => view => show hidden files and folders

I just copy them to the mobile / audio folder in windows explorer

I think you have to copy - move them from the transflash card to the phone.

I have mine a m4a file as its smaller. You can shove a whole mp3 etc on there but takes up all your memory. I used a free programe called WavePad

I imported it as a mp3 file and cut and sliced till I had what I want and I mean a small sound file and saved as m4a type as the phone handles those and the quality is good.

Actually, while I'm here, is it possible to get rid of the Vodafone Logo on the small screen?

EDIT: And what movie types does it support?

On my phone I dont have a Voda logo, I have the time time displayed on the small screen,  I if close the flip the logo appears breifly but is replaced by the day date time so no voda logo.  On the main screen there is like a task bar that says messaging middle key and Voda live logo and the picture is a personalised background.

We have a soluation

I use the  Nokia Multimedia Converter 2.0. what this does is convert your large sized mp3's to the amr and for vids in the mpg format to .3gp This means that these files are compressed to a smaller size and you can then transfer them to your memory card and play them on the phone. Not yet a ipod replacment but the start.

Nokia Multimedia Converter 2.0

Nokia Multimedia Converter 2.0, including an enhanced user interface and support for 128 kbps video bit stream, is a tool for converting common multimedia files (such as AVI, WAV, MPEG, and MP3) into standard 3GPP/AMR, H.263, wideband-, and narrow-band-AMR-supported formats for use in mobile phone applications such as MMS. Original and converted multimedia and 3GPP/AMR formats can be played on a PC.

Thats cool have a play with the nokia tool, good for vids etc just remember it really squishs them down so you do loose a bit of quality.  I manily stick to ringtones as the phone is ok but not like a Nokia 6680 for example.
