The GF splashed out today on a Titan, but I cant work out for the life of me how to download any ringtones from Telecom. On their website if you select the Titan it loads the popup page with no content other then the "Click on the song title to listen to the preview" thing, and as it has Internet Explorer I cant get to the WAP type pages for Telecom.

Any suggestions?

Also, cant seem to get the ActiveSync talking over Bluetooth. USB works fine. Does anyone have any general pointers here?

Cant pay to download the Telecom ringtones, but you can get virtually any soundfile (.wav .mp3 etc) and copy to the device, tap+hold and set as ringtone.

Free ringtones from your mp3s!!

I just googled Knight Rider .wav and got that theme song for my ringtone today. Very retro.

For ActiveSync simply create an Incoming COM port on your PC, right-click ActiveSync and configure Connection Settings to listen on that COM port. Then you start the pairing process on your Pocket PC. This will identify the ActiveSync connection after pairing.

To start ActiveSync, open the application on your Pocket PC and tap Connect via Bluetooth.

As for the ringtones, you can use any wav file - but I don't think you can download from the Telecom store.

tonyhughes: Cant pay to download the Telecom ringtones


Thats a shame Telecom don't want to take our money. I guess i'll have to make an audio file from a midi (The GF doesn't like true tone type ringtones.)

Thanks for the active sync info MF.

Another thing, is there a way to stop any LEDs being on or blinking when the phone goes into standby? Very annoying when your trying to sleep.

Check out phoneAlarm from pocketmax.net it gives you all sorts of control over your device. Not sure about standby blinking, but check out his forums, the developer is extremely active and responsive.

freitasm: For ActiveSync simply create an Incoming COM port on your PC, right-click ActiveSync and configure Connection Settings to listen on that COM port. Then you start the pairing process on your Pocket PC. This will identify the ActiveSync connection after pairing.

Sorry MF, i'm having trouble following these instructions. How do I create an incoming COM port on my PC? And when I right click ActiveSync there is no such thing as Connection Settings.

Im using Vista BTW.

You are finding hard to follow because the instructions are for ActiveSync and Windows Vista runs WMDC.

On WMDC there's an option called Mobile Device Settings | Connection Settings and one of the options is to allow connections via Bluetooth. Check that one. Then you should start the pairing from your Pocket PC. No need to create any port on your PC for this.

Thats already ticked and bluetooth is selected in the dropdown, however when I pair it only doesnt give me ActiveSync and the ActiveSync application on the Pocket PC says there are no paired devices setup for activesync (Or words to that effect)

Make sure you always start the pairing from your Pocket PC. If it's already there, delete the pairing and start again.

You might want to create a new thread, because this is way off topic...
