    Ringtone Length Hack

    Is there a hack to allow regular full length mp3s play as ringtones for both calls and texts, etc. ??
    thanks

    bad idea for text alerts since they can not be stopped/muted...

    The recommendation is 20-30 seconds for ring tones and 1-2 for alerts.

    not to mention that a ringtone will only play for 30 seconds before it hits voicemail

    it can be longer for sms/mms alerts but realize you can NOT silence them when a msg is received.

    you can get a longer one
    but like RB said you cant silence a text tone
    so it will play until its done...its recommended you get a short one so that it wont continue to play for 2 minutes after you read the text

    How do you get it to allow 20-30 seconds? Every time I try to assign a ringtone longer than 15 seconds, my i580 automatically cuts it down (asking, of course...).

    I hate those time you try to turn the sound off on your phone, and sometime you just cant find the right button...fumbling around..yanking the battery cover off, trying to pull the battery..:tounge:

    Like when you turn of you BT headphones before turning off the player in your office
