Access Ringtones from a microSD card:

Transferring files to the microSD card through the phone using BitPim is very slow, users should transfer files to the card directly from a PC.

  1. On the microSD card, create a subdir called ringers

  2. Copy your ringtone files to the ringers subdir.

  3. Insert the card back into the phone and start BitPim.

  4. Retrieve Ringtone data from the phone:

    1. Menu Data -> Get Phone Data.

    2. Check on Ringtone, and click on OK.

  5. Write Ringtone data back to the phone:

    1. Menu Data -> Send Phone Data.

    2. Check on Ringtone and click on OK.

  6. All of the ringtones stored on both the phone and the card are now available for assignment.

Step 3 through 5 should be repeated for all changes made to the ringers subdir.

Ringtones stored on the microSD card will not show up in the Ringers tab, since BitPim does not add or delete those files.

To delete ringtones stored on the microSD card, first delete them manually from the phone, then remove the associated ringtone files from the card.
