What types of ringtones can be played on a Samsung mobile phone?
Samsung is known for staying ahead of the technological curve. Of course, all Samsung mobile phones can play old-fashioned monophonic ringtones, and newer models can play the richer sounds of polyphonic ringtones too. The most impressive models though are Samsung�s latest phones that boast MP3 ringtone capability. MP3s provide the most true-to-life sound; unlike polyphonic ringtones, which are synthesized covers of instruments and singers, MP3s are audio recordings of actual music, voices, and sound effects.
As of mid-2009, Samsung was promoting a variety of MP3-capable phones. Two examples include Jack (SGH-i637) � a program-packed phone that�s advertised as �your personal assistant� � and the SGH-a177, which costs less than the ever-helpful Jack but also plays MP3 ringtones.
How can I get Samsung ringtones?
If you have an older Samsung model, you might have a factory-installed melody composer. Your musical options will be limited, but the composer can provide hours of amusement nonetheless. Ringtone composers can also be downloaded for a variety of Samsung models.
If you have a newer Samsung phone, you�ll appreciate its combination of Bluetooth capability, USB port, and mobile internet access. The cell phone�s multifunctionality provides users with numerous ways to put Samsung ringtones on their phone for little to no cost: they can transfer audio files directly from another electronic device; convert their own MP3s to ringtones online and then send them to a phone; or download others� Samsung ringtones from a variety of websites.
Ringophone is unique in its offering of unlimited downloads. Packages are just $14.99 for six months or $19.99 for a year.
How can I make free Samsung ringtones?
Many Samsung phones are equipped with Bluetooth and USB ports. This lets users transfer their MP3s to the cell phone without needing to use a website as intermediary.
Sometimes though, directly transferring an MP3 to a cell phone is impractical: the MP3 should be edited first. Most song files on commercial CDs are too long to be used as Samsung ringtones; they claim too much storage space and drain the phone�s battery. Users might want to edit a song for other reasons, too, such as adding a fade-in or starting the ring at a certain point in the song. This can be accomplished with free audio editing software like Audacity.
It�s also possible to modify MP3 files online without downloading any editing software. Myxer.com and other sites allow users to upload their own audio files, edit them online, and then send them to a phone. Websites typically do not charge for this service; they profit mostly from advertising and sales of the most popular ringtones. However, a customer who does not have an unlimited data transfer contract with their cell phone company might be charged for the downloaded ringtone on their next phone bill.
