I see a lot of links to wav files as ringtones, but I can't seem to get them to work. Instead I use WB-AMR files, which have rather poor quality and a low volume. My friend has wav ringtones on his 7650 (taking up most of his memory!) and I would rather have wav files. Whenever I send a wav file to my phone, and try to browse available ringtones the phone won't recognise the wav file as a valid ringtone.
Am I missing something? Is there a size limit to the ringtone? Do I need it on the phone memory? Do I need it in a certain folder?
Please help, as I am missing calls cos my ringtone is too damn quiet.
I don't know how you did it but let me show my ways.
1) Choose a mp3 or wav file. Connect your phone to pc via IR or BT. Open Pc Suite and put your file into "Sound Files>Digital" folder. File conversation begin automatically by pc suite.
2) Choose a mp3 or wav file. Open that file by your favorite sound processing program (mine is goldwave). Save your file as acceptable wav file (gsm 22,050 khz mono or gsm 44,100 khz mono options available in goldwave). Connect your phone to pc via IR or BT. Open Pc Suite leave file conversation off in configuration. And put your file into "Sound Files>Digital" folder.
Let Pc Suite handle your file conversation if you don't know how. Or search forum, there was a thread about mp3 to wav file conversation.
I hope that's help you.

To be honoust, you can leave Sound Conversion on, but that;s my opinion.
If your samples are in good quality they will stay at a nice quality, but that's my opinion. As long as you do not have a € 100000 speaker set attached to you mobile, why use lot's of space while a little less quality (i can't hear the difference) uses lot's less space.
But you must use the PC Suite, using BT --> send to... option cut's of the beginning and end of a sample. :(
Use the suite as mentioned in other posts, and place the either on your MMC card or phone memory in the folder: sounds\Digital or create your own subfolders.
