    Not sure where to post this - so if this is a bad place to put this, just let me know. One of my first posts.

    I just bought an Eris last week. Yay!

    I am trying to customize my ring tone using the following ring tone...
    http://www.zedge.net/ringtones/469073/sonar-ringtone/

    The site lets you download it to your computer and then email it to your phone or go to the site on your phone and download it.

    I have tried both options, however in both cases my phone only lets my preview the sound (hear it), but not actually download it and use it as a ringtone.

    What I am missing? (Something obvious I am sure)
    Thanks!!

    zedge has an app that helps you manage your ringtones.
    they have over 100 sonar apps :)
    just checked.
    but if you could download the file, u can use a file explorer like astro file manager, create a folder called ringtones and put it in there.
    at least thats what i remember from memory :)

    I've grabbed a few tones from zedge. Just download it to your PC (I have a folder on my desktop just for tones), mount your phone (still giggle when I say that), and copy it over.

    Theres a good, stickied "Tips and Tricks" thread that has details for setting up your phone for custom ringtones.
