More on Sprint Ringtones

After making my previous post about Sprint ringtones, I made a ringtone for my fiancée from a song that she really liked. She had previously said that she was really looking forward to it becoming available and would use it as her ring as soon as it was. She was really appreaciative, but after a couple weeks pointed out that it didn’t sound as good as the other ringtones on her phone. I thought that was weird, because I had listened to that ringtone and some of the ones I had downloaded from Sprint’s site on my phone and they all sounded about the same to me. My fiancée, being a Sprint employee, has a fancier phone than I do, so I listened to a couple of the other ringtones on her phone, and she was right… the one I made for her just didn’t sound as good. So I went back and did a little more research and discovered that the Sanyo MM 7400 supports MP4 ringtones, provided they have the M4A extention. So, I had to find a way to convert my WAV file into an MP4 file. For that purpose, I used dBpowerAMP. So to make a long story short, she was really happy that I was able to produce a ringtone that sounds just as good as the ones she gets from the Sprint site and was just what she wanted.

Update 8-Feb-2006: Thanks to Tony, we now know how to make ringtones for free! (Hint: Use walmart.com as step 1).

  1. iTunes will convert to a MPa, all you have to do is tell it to convert to AAC, but it didn’t work on my phone. Does anyone know if the sprint Katana (sprint’s ripoff of the RAZR) supports the mp4’s?

  2. Unfortunately, I don’t have this ringtone. Other people have talked about it on my site, but I haven’t been paying close enough attention to know for sure if anybody has post a link to it.

  3. after trying everything you mentioned and more i am still not able to get ringtones for my katana 2. when i used to have a samsung with tmobile. i would go to myxertones.com and make my own ringtones and send them to my phone, but with my phone it couldn’t find a working format so ive been looking online since. ive used different converters to qcp format and i upload it to an uploader and download it on my phone but once its on my phone no sound plays at all, ive tried this numerous times. When i saw this website you said to use qualcomm but when i clicked on the link i cant find a download link anywhere. ive read that some peoples phones will say their is no data, my phone says the extact data that i downloaded.. it says im using up that memory just no sound plays… when i read about the m4a.. i downloaded all those things and tired that format but i still get the same results.

  4. it’s possible w/o ventones.

    combine a pic and music w/ windows movie maker.

    convert to *.3gp and rename to *.3g2.

    follow ventones instructions but use the file you created to get it to your phone.

    Don’t use full range music, use Audacity or something to pass the lower frequencies.

    This is possible to do w/o submitting your info to ventones.

    Good luck. My LG Music on Sprint network w/ no power vision/internet has custom ringtones.
