 Are there any legit websites to get free ringtones for a non-smartphone?

They all seem to be scams, like the ones advertised on TV with 80 lines of fine print.

I'm looking for some simple stuff that is a little better than a loud ass beep from my i680.

I just go find clips from songs or TV shows and email them to my phone (works with Verizon).
You can also get free programs to chop out segments of a song you have and send that to your phone as well.

roll your own

Typically non-smart phones prefer .wav files, IIRC

Perhaps my phone or I (or both) are retarded. I went to myxer and followed the directions but the text I got didn't include a downloadable file, just a url link back to myxer

I think your problem is you're trying to get them by downloading them straight to your phone, right? Those "text 123#45" for free ring tones ads are all crap



The easiest way IMO is to download them to your PC and then transfer them to your phone.

There is nothing special or magic that makes a ringtone a ringtone. A ringtone is simply a sound file that your phone plays when it rings. Put any sound file onto your phone and tell the phone that the new sound file is a ringtone and it will be played when the phone rings. Some phones may need a .mp3 file, some may need a .wav file, whatever. So, you can use any sound file you like; it does not have to come form a ringtone site.

Yes but I don't have a cable or memory card that my phone will use, I was just hoping to be able to have one sent straight to the phone. Thanks though.
