    Hello,

    I have a new Motorola (Android) from Verizon. I am trying to get an mp3 from my main computer (on the desktop) into my Android and make that my ringtone. I have heard there is a simple way to do this.

    Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

    Thanks !!

    To add MP3 ringtones to the Bionic ...

    Connect the Bionic to your PC using the USB cable that came with it.

    There will be two devices displayed by File Manager when looking at Computer on the PC.

    Create a folder on the SD or SD-Ext ... ringtones ... I chose /media/ringtones

    Copy the MP3 files to this folder

    Disconnect the Bionic from the PC

    The ringones are now available in the various dropdown lists of ringtones.

    If you want notification ringtones as well, you can create a folder called "Notifications" for them. They do not have to be on the root of external storage - I have a folder called "Media", with folders called "Ringtones" and "Notifications" in that folder.

    Also, the folders can be on the sdcard-ext, as Thom references it - this is the physical SD card; confusingly, sdcard is actually internal storage.

    To add to the above instructions, you can use "Ring Droid" to trim a song down for ring tones as well. You can have just the chorus in other words.
