    Hello, I had a verizon razr v3 for two years, I am now waiting for my Droid Eris to arrive. My question is this: Is the Eris Ringtones locked like the verizon razr v3? Had to hack the razr so I could add ringtones. Will I need to do this with the Eris?

    You wont need to "hack" the Eris to add ring tones, but you cannot remove the ring tones already on the phone

    Hi, I just recieved my Droid Eris today and I am loving it. I put my own ringtones on an SD card, then put that into my Eris, I now have my own ringtones, my only issue right now is how do I set up ringtones for each of my contacts, that part I have not figured out yet. Thank you for any help.

    Rdit the contact ... below the email field will be the ringtone field. It will say default, click it and select the ringtone of your choice

    Hi,
    I really thank you for your help. I really don't mean to be a pest or anything. I am still learning....When I used my razr v3 for text messageing, I could send a text to ten people at the same time, can I also do the same with the Eris? If so, how?...Again I thank you so much

    try to cut down your list of people sent to 5, sounds like 10 freaked it out.

    I only sent to one.

    might had your signal flake out, is this a recurring problem or a one time thing?
  15. badass_tweety

    badass_tweety Member

    yes its a recurring problem. Everytime I try to send a text to one person, I get the same thing everytime...."SMS Error..Radio Interface Resource Shortage"...I even tried it in the same room as our wireless pc. Will I need to take it to my local service carrier and have them fix the issue?

    i would but first go to phone and call *228 and press 2 when prompted, just for shits and giggles and see what happens.....i wont hurt your phone, just update your towers.

    At this point I am willing to try anything.

    Problem solved. I took it to my local carrier, Verizon, I told the lady what the issue was. She spotted the problem right away, she fixed it. The issue was, my phone was not programed correctly from the beginning, so therefore it was not connecting to the net. She re-programed the phone and now it works just fine. Just thought I would post it here incase anyone else has the same issue.

    Is there an app I need for gifs with sound to work properly? I have one of a kitten doing push-ups and the song is "I'mmmmm gonnaaaaaaa whoop somebody's a$$....." I put it on my Eris and the kitten works but no song.

    +1 Thanks Wolfdroid-this did the trick for me-and for notifications, also. Everything is showing up where it should.

    I've had the same problem with getting ringtones to show up where I want them on my SD card. I have everything working like I want except that every ringtone I have isn't title the way I originally had it. The only work around I could find was to save the ringtone to my SD card so that it was picked up by my music. Then I would edit it in Ringdroid and then delete it from my music file. That's a hassle though so does anyone have a solution for me? I'd really appreciate it :)

    How can I make Animated Gifs with music work on my Eris phone? I can not figure this one out.

    There is no such thing as a gif with sound.

    ok, I will explain what I am trying to get at, a friend had sent me a message on my old razr phone, it was of a kitten actually doing push-ups and the music that came with the kitten was "I'mmmmmm gonnaaaa whoop somebodys a$$....." I can not get that to work on my Eris.

    ok i actually just spent .49 cents just to answer your question. apparently no, it will not play. i went to verizon site, sent the animated talking text message. it was recieved to my phone as a mms via handcent, i downloaded it, opened it, the animation worked but there was no sound.

    this message thing verizon offers idk how it works exactly, i guess it bundles a sound file and a animated gif together, but there is no such thing as a animated gif with sound , or any gif, or any picture, with sound in 1 file.

    im sure it plays fine on a feature phone but does not play nice with a smartphone.
