    Where can I get custom ring tones?

    You can use any .wav file for a ring tone. There endless sources of .wav files on the internet. Here are some sites that are popular for their .wav selections:

    Ring Tones for I700

    I highly reccommend the link below to Microsoft's ring tone app. It comes with quite a few preinstalled ring tones. http://www.microsoft.com/mobile/pocketpc/downloads/powertoys.asp

    RINGTONES

    Where can I get software that can take an MP3 or WAV file I downloaded into the i700 and put it in the phone's Ringers List?

    Software to download ringtones into the phone

    DMZ:

    There may be an all-in-one software solution but I'm unaware of it, this is how I do it... You may need to install the ringtone powertoy to do this. You can try it first but if it doesn't work see above post to install it.

    To open the folder for sending ringtones to the phone: Connect your phone to the dock, open Activesync, click Explore, Double-click the folder called "My Pocket PC", double click "Windows", and finally double-click "Rings". You can paste any .WAV file that you would like here.

    To convert MP3's to WAV's: I suggest that you download some audio editing software and cut out the part you want. You can get free audio editing software like Audacity at http://www.download.com.

    To conserve space I suggest that you resample using the format that Microsoft uses which is:
    Bit Rate: 88kbps
    Sample size: 8bit
    Channels: 1 (mono)
    Sample rate: 11kHz
    Audio Format: PCM

    To resample "Sound Recorder" (with Windows it's usually in Programs --> Accessories--> Entertainment) open the audio clip then choose "Save As" and under format click change then choose "PCM 11.025kHz, 8bit, mono". Copy the new file to the phone as described above.

    How to set up a ring tone on i700

    DMZ:

    I just put the .wav file in \Windows\Rings on my i700, and go to Start/Settings/Phone and it appears in the Ring tone list.

    There's nothing more professional or just plain cool sounding when you have a professional voice like an administrative assistant on your i700.

    How do you think, "Mr. Johnson, you have an incoming call." and "You have new voicemail, Sir" will sound around others when your i700 decides to go off?

    using the text to speach option

    How do I actually save the text to speech as a file. You have got me hooked on playing with the programs but I can't actually find the files. Quicktime opens them up automatically and than there gone.

    Can't get .wav to play???

    I have been trying for weeks to get a particular .wav file to play when it's my wife calling. The file is under "Ring Tone" but refuses to play unless I am in Windows Media.

    Can anybody tell me what the hell I'm doing wrong here? I've had no problems up until I tried this particular .wav file!
