    Saving A Sound As A ringtone

    okay.... so im pretty new at everything with this phone. i have tons and tons of questions but no one ever seems to respond to me. so first off, i have recieved a picture message with a sound i wanna save as a ringtone, when i save it, it says saved as unknown001 in template gallery, first off i have no idea how to access that, secondly, i dont understand what it means in all the hacks to "Navigate" is that through autosync on your computer or is this something within the phone? someone please help me i would be very much so greatful to whoever did... if anyone has IM or something that could make it faster and easier i would be extremely happy as well :2cool:

    if you get a sound as an MMS you need to use the save object feature and then find where it saved to and move it to the sounds folder

    to do hacks you need a registry editor
    info on those can be found in the hacks forum in the first sticky post

    sounds like you used 'saveas template' which you dont want
    hit the 'object view' then you can save it
    i believe the location is '\application data\objectview'

    use the phones file manager to go to the folder '\application data\objectview' and then copy and paste it to '\my documents\ringtones or \my documents\sounds'

    then go to start
    settings
    sounds and find the ringtone

    its a folder
    if you dont see it
    use the right soft key to go to options and unhide your system files

    you may need to exit file manager....not sure

    next thought

    do you remember what you named the file?
    you could (in the file manager) search for the name of the file you saved...pointing out its location

    its got to be there somewhere!!

    go here
    http://mq.roeiboot.com/apps/
    and download the nomessage hack .cab file and move it to the Q
    (DO NOT UNZIP)
    and click on the file in the file manager and it will install
    you can put the .cab file anywhere and when you are done installing you can delete it

    yea i think so
    or perhaps a general search for *.*wav or *.*mp3
    on a pc those will have you find all the files with that extension...could work on the Q never tried it

    yes move the entire file to the Q and then click on the file to install

    just follow instructions

    1. move .cab to Q via active sync
    2. on the Q use the file manager to find the .cab file
    3. click on .cab
    4. watch it install
    5. delete .cab (if you want)
    6. enjoy no sent message screen
