What is the history of Sprint?
The present-day Sprint Nextel Corporation began as Brown Telephone Company in 1898. It was an early competitor to the Bell System. More than a century later, the Kansas-based Sprint Corporation merged with Nextel to become America�s third-largest telecommunications company. The Sprint Nextel wireless network now serves about 40 million subscribers.
Which phones can play Sprint ringtones?
Sprint Nextel�s main wireless brand is Sprint PCS. All Sprint PCS phones can play Sprint ringtones. Some are limited to monophonic and polyphonic ringtones, but others have MP3 capability too.
Many Sprint Nextel customers use Nextel devices. These are generally Motorola cell phones with a walkie-talkie mode; examples include Nextel�s iDEN, Powersource, and QChat phone models. Nextel phones can play ringtones, but downloading them sometimes involves using different technology than what�s used for most other mobile phones. To make it easy, Sprint offers some Nextel ringtones in its Digital Lounge.

How can I make free Sprint ringtones?
It�s easy to make Sprint ringtones for free. The websites in the section above help make the task easy. For example, making a ringtone on Myxer.com requires these easy steps:
1)��� Go to Myxer.com and 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 sometimes take several minutes even with a high speed internet connection.
2)��� Then click �Customize� to edit the file. You�ll be able to choose a starting point for your ringtone, fade the music in and out, and decide on a length for your new ringtone.
