How can I create a ringtone from an MP3 song using freeware?
And, how do I get that ringtone onto my AT&T (Cingular) Motorola RAZR V3
Please pardon my long−winded answer. There are three parts to your question:
1. Get the "content" for your ringtone. You sound like you
already have an mp3 you want to use, but if not, you can download
mp3 or midi files from the internet, or "rip" something you like from
a audio CD using free software like Express Rip which is available
If you want to "capture" an online audio stream, there is also
an inexpensive ($18 or free demo) program called Total Recorder
which can make an mp3 out of anything playing through your
computer's sound card. This program will also let you convert
a midi file to an mp3. (Some people prefer the simplicity of
a midi−style ringtone to that of a poly−phonic clip from an
audio file or CD.) http://www.highcriteria.com/
2. Edit your mp3. Select the 20 or 30 seconds which you want
to use for your ringtone. Total Recorder can be used for this.
Or you can use Wavepad which is available from the same folks
who produce Express Rip (see above) or even use the basic
"Sound Recorder" which is included in you Microsoft Windows
Your phone probably has a size limit on how big a ringtone can
be. Usually this is somewhere in the range of 100KB to 350KB
but I don't know specifically for the RAZR V3. The worst that
happens if your file is too big is that your phone gives you an
error message and you will have to re−edit your file to be
