    Probably need to convert a really low bitrate. I know you can do this in iTunes from a disc.

    The phone can use MP3s. You don't really need to convert it to anything, just put them on your phone.

    Yeah what schweb said.

    My D500 takes MP3's just normally via bluetooth and then just set them to the ring tone

    Job Done.

    I just purchased a RAZR V3c with Telus (the provider). Getting the mp3 files onto the phone via Bluetooth is no problem. I believe the problem that efrazer390 had was that they were unable to be used as ringtones. I'm having the same problem, and have been told by Telus that they (and other providers) have "locked out" that feature, implying that the only way to get new ringtones was to purchase them through their site. There are a couple of programs that some Windows users are using to change/delete files from their phone's directories. This seems to work for some people, yet not for others. Don't know of any programs for Mac that would help out our situation, though.

    ....This is a low tech method my son uses:

    If the Razr has an inbuilt recorder, record and hold it in front of your stereo/Mac speakers as the CD/mp3 is playing.

    Not too close or too loud....my son succeeded in creating a "Team America" ringtone, and plenty others that sounded pretty good.

    Does anyone know of an easy way for me to edit my mp3s to play them as ringtones on my phone. I need like a good tutorial. I just want to be able to cut out a portion and save it as mp3. I have tried Audacity, Garageband, and QT Pro but no success.

    The tunes are for my Samsung D807. For ringtones they can't be more than 26 seconds. I just want to cut easy and save but all these programs seem to make it difficult.

    GarageBand should do it....just import the MP3 and use the wave editor below to edit out the parts you dont want then export it into iTunes.

    I'm here for a while I can walk you through it...

    Cool. I have 2.0.2 version of GB. I cut a clip to about 25 seconds but then when I sent it to iTunes it was 40 seconds. On top of that in .aif

    I looked for export options but I couldn't find any.

    You might have to play around with the clip to get the right amount sent to iTunes.

    Before importing it to iTunes go to iTunes Prefs>Advanced then select the importing tab and choose to import songs as: Mp3.

    I'll try to achieve the 26sec mp3 myself....

    I have my preferences to mp3 but that's only for cd import. I guess I could just burn it on an RW and then re-import but still leaves me with the 40 sec dilemma.
