    I just got a K1M phone and it can play mp3 as ringtones, so I was wondering, what is the best site for ring tones?

    I wanted this song Yanni-Rainmaker for raintone, but it's not optimized as a ringtone when you get it as an mp3...

    Is the phone locked or not?

    Edit:
    NVM, but new thing:
    Can't you just transfer mp3s from your computer to your phone?

    That's what I was tryin to say. I have the song, but I wonder if there is a polysynthetic version which is optimized for ringtones.

    i use a program called aoa audio extractor to make my ringtones

    you can select which part of the song you want and decrease the bitrate to make the song smaller

    http://www.aoamedia.com/audioextractor.htm

    license: free
    spyware: none that i can see or heard from
    i dont have a scanner anymore unfortunately


    edit:

    lol oops i was mistaken what westside was asking too ;P
    i thought he was asking how to make ringtones but he already has put mp3s in his phone
    when he asks "what is the best site for ring tones?" that is supposed to mean where to get songs clipped and ready to play in your compatible phone ! that i dont know westside ;O

    If you have access to a Mac (don't know if you do or not), GarageBand has a tool for making ring tones built right into it.

    its actually easier than u think..

    using windows...free program called audacity, use that and crop the part u want for a ringtone (or cut out the parts u dont want) then save as mp3. then transfer to phone.

    it doesnt have to be specially optimized, if u want, u can play with equalizer settings (i dont use audacity, i use acid pro, but audacity is free)

    Whether or not the phone is tied for use with a specific carrier. Not really relevant to your question though.

    I just load the sound file in my preferred audio editing application (Audacity), chop out the part you want, then loop it. You can further lower the bitrate after that depending on how much you care about saving space and such.

    I'll give EQ a try. As you see in the youtube link, it's a little soft. I did crop the part I want, now I want to ampliphy it. So far the shit software I've used have damaged the mp3's quality by amplifying, is there a good one?

    Many cell phone services lock their phones with special firmwares to the point nothing but files downloaded from the *official* ringtone downloading services.  One of these would be Telus' Nokia phones.
    Of course, by unlocking a phone you are also able to change the phone's firmware as you please.

    But then I made an edit after re-reading Westside's first post.

    I think it is technically illegal for a non-licensed song to be played as a ring tone........

    RIAA makes me laugh.

    So... one provider in Canada?

    If a phone company feels the need to stop you using your own ringtones, then it deserves no customers. OSHIT iPhone.
