    I got the motorola t809 slider phone recently. so far i love it. the only thing i dont like is that u can put mp3s on it to listen to, but you cant set them as the ringtone because it has some copyright protection thing on it. Im wondering if anyone has found a way around this? or do i have to just stick to the $hitty downloadable ones?

    You got robbed. Motorola doesn't make a T809. However Samsung does.

    If you want to use your mp3s as ringtones change the filename from .mp3 to .3gp. then it'll work as your ringtone.

    rename no need to convert.

    Tried renaming and all it did was make th name song.3gp.mp3. Looked around and didnt see a way to get tid of the mp3 part, but im not a computer wiz. Is there anything else I should be doing, cause that didnt help so far.

    How do you make the extension visible so you can remove the MP3?

    Go to windows explorer

    Click on Tools > Folder Options

    click on on the View Tab
    Look for the "Hide extensions for known file types"
    and make sure that its un checked/filed in

    and you're set.

    if you want to set mp3's as ringtons just do this:

    go into

    settings/sound settings/incoming call/ringtone

    when you are in there you will see that all the *.mps's are grey and you are not able to select them.

    find the one you want and choose select(it wont show that you have selected it) and then hit the "c" clear button and then hit the "save" key.

    when you go back into the incoming call setting, it should be the mp3 that you have selected.
