    This may be a repost, but is there a way to get around Verizon's software and allow you to use mysounds as ringtones? Paying 2-3 bucks for a ringtone is pretty ridiculous especially since you can just email sounds to your phone. Any help with this would be great.

    I dont know if this method still works, but google GAGIN

    (Get Around Get It Now). This used to be a viable workaround, but it was a bit involved... the process may have improved some.. I dont know. Ive been out of this stuff for awhile now.

    Nope, I have an LG VX5200, no mp3 player, but I can send clips as picture messages and get them in my sounds. But my sounds can't be used as ringtones...

    What phone?


    I have the Samsung a990, and you can either transport your own sounds with a microSD (just take any mp3 and rename it with the .mid file format) or you can email the sound file to your phone, and save the attachment in "Mysounds." Then you can just turn off the default ringtone, and turn on the mysound file, and you can set it to play that file whenever you get a call, txt, etc.


    EDIT. Oops didnt see your post above.
