I'm having issues adding new SMS tones to my Qtek 9100. I don't really understand what format is accepted. I have compared all the audio files on the device that are recognized as SMS tones and the ones that are not, and in my eyes there's no difference they all have in common.

I've read somewhere that only wav's are recognized as SMS tones, but I have several .wav's in PCM format that doesn't show up in the list, although they are stored in the same directory as the other tones that do show up in the list.

Anyone here who have the details on what sound formats are recognized as sms tones (or notification sounds other than phone ringtones), where they need to be stored on the device, and if there's any specials to care about like bitrates, filesizes, sample rate etc.

Many thanks =)

For Incoming call Ringtones you should place the wav file in \Windows\Rings. For other notification types place the wav file in \Windows.

I have a 8 bit, 22 kHz, mono sound working ok, while the default sounds are 8 bit, 44 kHz, mono.

Strange. When I tried this before I just couldn't manage to get the files I put in the windows folder to show up. But now it just works. Funny. And no, it can't be that I did something wrong. It just can't ;-)

Another way to do it if you dont want to kill your memory on your phone is, you can install a programme called electric pocket ringo ringer. This will alow you to put any tone i.e. mp3 midi wav ect. There are a few glitches with this but i belive that their is a new version out.
