What types of ringtones can be played on an LG cell phone?
All LG phones can play monophonic ringtones, and the vast majority of mobile models manufactured today can play the richer synthesized music of polyphonic ringtones too.
Some of the newer LG models, such as the C1500 and LG SV-420, are capable of playing TrueTone ringtones in addition to the older monophonic and polyphonic ringtones. (TrueTone ringtones are actual recordings, not synthesized covers.) Since the LG phone website does not necessarily include ringtone information about each model, potential customers who desire TrueTones should check with vendors to ensure that a given model is MP3-capable.
Some LG phones have been sold with audio recording capability. Originally, LG users could record their voices or music for conversion to a ringtone. As of 2008, this capability was disabled in response to concerns over copyright violations.
How can I get free LG ringtones?
It�s easy to make or download your own LG ringtones for free. A popular and reputable website that facilitates this process is Myxer.com. Myxer�s service is compatible with most US carriers (i.e., AT&T, Cellular One, Sprint, TMobile, Verizon Wireless, and Virgin Mobile).
A. Make your own LG ringtones with Myxer.com.
1)��� To make a free LG ringtone on Myxer, first click on the tab labeled �Make your own�. �You�ll be prompted to upload the audio file that you want to convert. Be patient; uploads can take a few minutes even with a high speed connection.
2)��� Next, click �Customize� in order to edit the file. You�ll be able to choose a starting point, fade the song in and out, and decide on a length for your new LG ringtone. (Note that ringtone files generally do not exceed 30 seconds in length. The default Mxyer ringtone is 15 seconds long.)
3)��� You�re almost done! After choosing �Continue�, enter your LG phone number into the box at the bottom of the page. Then click �Send to phone�.
4)��� A picture message will be sent to your LG handset. Open the message, click your phone�s �Options� button, and scroll to choose the �Save ringtone� option. Now your new ringtone is ready to use.
Note:� Myxer does not charge users to make or send free LG ringtones. However, a cell phone company might charge a customer for the data transfer when the ringtone is downloaded. For example, in the case of Verizon Wireless, customers are charged as if they�ve received a picture file. Customers who have unlimited picture messaging do not incur a separate charge.
B. Download free LG ringtones from Myxer.com.
Myxer has served more than 20 million cell phone users, and many have contributed free content in the form of wallpaper, videos, and ringtones. Free LG ringtones are thus available in a wide variety of categories, from wake-up alarms to classical music, comedy, and hip-hop. Myxer allows users to customize each of these files.
No subscription is needed to access free content. However, users have the option of establishing a debit account for the $1.99 ringtones. This can help people to manage their ringtone use. If a separate account is not established, then any LG ringtones that were downloaded for a fee will appear on the user�s mobile phone statement.
