How To Convert Songs Into Ringtones
In the modern world we live in, people are no longer limited by the polyphonic tones pre-installed on their cellphones for a ringtone choice, but it might not be common knowledge about how to convert songs into ringtones for use. Luckily, it isn't too difficult at all, and with a bit of computer literacy and an understanding of your cellphone technology, you can easily do this yourself. Remember, however, that every cellphone is different. Some cellphones don't even need you to convert the file, you can simply put the mp3 on your phone and set it as your ringtone, others may be more complicated.
- Figure out what your phone needs. The file format your phone needs the ringtone to be in will be important to know. As mentioned, some phones don't even require any conversion and your journey into custom ringtones could already be over. Most likely, it won't, and you will need to find a way to convert the ringtone.
- The Search. Now, with knowledge of the file format and phone type in hand, find an audio editing program on the internet that supports converting mp3s to the desired format. Download and install this program.
- Edit your audio. Now find the song you want to use on your hard drive and load it into the editor. Go through the song and choose the part of the song you would like screaming from your phone when somebody calls you. Usually, you want to trim the song down to 30 seconds or so. When you do, export the song as the correct file format and save it to your hard drive.
- Getting it on your phone. Your best bet will be to either hook up a USB cable from your computer to your phone and put the song on that way, but if you don't have this option, you can e-mail the sound file to your phone as an attachment and open it from there. Either way, you'll be on your way to converting your songs into ringtones and having a phone customized exactly to your liking.
