How To Make Custom Ringtones And Download Them

Jun 11, 2008
One of the first things that many people do after they've purchased a brand new cell phone is to scroll through the phone to look and see which ringtones came with their phone! What matters, though, is whether or not their phone is able to accept new and different ringtones if they're unhappy with the ringtones they've received straight from the manufacturer.

Downloading Ringtones: There's always the possibility of downloading ringtones from the World Wide Web. There are thousands of websites available on-line, mostly from third party vendors, which will allow you to download ringtones to your mobile phone at low-costs or even no costs to you. Of course there are plenty of vendors that also charge you a one-time or monthly fee that actually gets added on to your cell phone bill when it arrives.

Cell Phone Companies: The ringtones that can be downloaded from the internet, though, may pose a problem for some consumers. First, most mobile phone companies do not guarantee that just any ringtone will work on a mobile phone, but instead they recommend and implore their customers to download ringtones from their official site. Of course, this generates income for the cell phone carrier, but it also guarantees consumers that what they're getting is ringtones that won't damage their phone and will work properly.

A second problem for consumers, however, lies in the fact that not all third party vendors who sell or give away phone ringtones may have any ringtones available for specific phones, forcing to consumer to purchase a new mobile phone if he or she plans on downloading many ringtones from the internet.

On the other hand, there are a lot of people who are just happy to make their own ringtones. This can be especially easy to do if you have a phone that is also an mp3 player and can handle mp3 song files. The whole process of making your own ringtones is relatively simple and easy, though, as all one really has to do is find a cord for their phone that will allow it to be hooked up to the computer.

This is usually some sort of cable that connects to a USB outlet on the computer and into the phone's charger piece on the device. The only other tools that one needs in order to make their own ringtones may be a file converter and a program to cut song files down to the appropriate size for a ringtone.

As mentioned, mobile phones that are allowed to accept mp3 song files are much easier to transport song files to from your computer. On the whole, though, mp3-playing cell phones will allow for many other ringtones to be downloaded in general as opposed to a phone that only has and is able to accept polyphonic ringtones. Most of the older phones are the ones that are usually limited in their capabilities, though, and most newer cell phones on the market today can accept just about anything in terms of music and ringtones.

The cell phone and ringtone market is definitely an area of technology and consumer devices that probably will not slow down in the near future. As the space and amount of files that phones are able to hold gets larger and larger, and the music capabilities of cell phones are increased, the ringtone market will be just as popular as it has been in recent years!
