I've been searching the net for ringtones for a Verizon phone. There are so many sources, and many just seem unsafe. Registration, e-mail addresses, cookies, tracking my movements, etc. All I want is a safe place to find authentic tones and download them. Anyone know of a good site--one that offers truly authentic tones with a minimum of risks?

Depending on your phone, you can create your own ringtones and copy them to it. Id search for user forums for your particular model and see if thats something you can do yourself.



Just a suggestion you should create a junk mail e-mail address at one of the many web based e-mail sites available. That way you never have to use your actual home/personal e-mail address and you can avoid all of the junk e-mail that comes from registering at such sites.

Interesting, I never knew there were risks with ringtone, I too have Verizon and I think I have downloaded 3 ringtones over the years and they all three have been from whatever Verizon site that was on my phone. So far I have never had a issuse,, but know a days I guess you never know.

I doubt if you can create your own ringtones. I have a Verizon phone as well, and haven't figured out how. Apparently the Verizon software block you from accessing certain portions of the phone (i.e. creating new ringtones) you can put tones on the phone, but it won't recognize them as ringtones.

So far I've had to purchase them all from Verizon's online/on-air store.

I like it the best. You can even upload your own mp3 and chop the part you want as a ringtone.

Verizon is just the service provider; they do not manufacture the telephones. You can unlock (hack) virtually every phone available on the market today. There is software that will allow you to remove/change the brand (provider logo) add ringtones, reprogram the button layout, etc which is why I suggested he search for forums for his model, somebody has the procedure already documented.

Sure you can, and it's easy. I just edit an mp3 down to about 30 seconds and a managable file size then email it to my phone. You canuse the site www.mobile17.com to upload and edit your sound file. If my number were 321-555-5555, I would email it to 3215555555@vzwpix.com. When you receive the pix message, the sound file will be available as an attachment that you can save to your phone and set as a ringtone.

zedge.net is safe, and has just about every ringtone you could ever want; I probably have 100 of them on my Blackberry, as I'm sort of a ringtone junky.

Mobile17 only would take a MIDI file, the ringtone I have is in MP3. How do I do this?

LOL...you can do anything on almost every phone out there.. MOT, Samsung, HTC....it's like you work for the company, but don't get pay to fix the phone for a customer...:supergrin:

Phone is one of my hobbies and weakness...so if anyone needs some help...

Tell me what phone you have, and I'll tell you what I can do for you.. I'm your "dope man" :supergrin:

I just looked at some of the sites mentioned here... are there any sites that have ringtones that actually sound like a damn phone ringer? I just want something that sounds remotely like a phone that is louder or more noticeable than the ones that came with my phone.
