Default Creating Ringtones and WAP

I own an LG VX8300 cellular.
I was given a piece of software that allows me to create my own
Ringtones.
However, I see no way to get these newly created tones onto my phone.
This cellular doesn't seem to have a cable outlet of any kind.

However, the software package denotes the use of WAP to send the
Ringtone
to my phone via the Internet.
I see no mention of WAP in any of the LG User Guides nor any mention of
it within the Verizon websites I've looked through.
This phone is Bluetooth capable and I use Bluetooth with it.
Is that related to WAP?

Any guidance as to how to get these created ringtones onto my phone
and what this WAP is, would be most appreciated.
Thxs.

The LG VX8300 has the ability through the Music Essential Kit to have a USB
data cable. However some others have stated that you can use the one that
came with your digital camera, or MP3 players etc. (Many other devices use
the same cable)

Now the phone also comes with the ability to use a MicroSD card (pretty
cheap) where you would simply get the sd card reader and hook to your
computer and then drag and drop music, photos, etc. onto the card and then
load into the side of the phone.

You could also simply email the sound to yourself via your "cell
number@vtext.com" or you could use the free service of Verizon's call
PixPlace http://www.vzwpixs.com

Many different ways to do what you are asking.

Hello,
Thank you for your response.
I'm sorry if I'm being dense but the only place I see ANY location on
the LG VX8300 where a cable could be connected is the battery charger
port.
I, of course, use the included cable and that port to charge the
battery. I assume that this port can NOT double as a data port of any
kind. Or am I'm way off base here??
If there is another cable connection port on this phone, I'll be dammed
if I can see it.
I do, however, have a MicroSD card inserted in this phone and I
currently use it for transporting pictures from the phone to my HP psc
2410 All-In-One printer.
To use the MicroSD for saving self-created ringtones and then
transporting them back to the phone seems as if I'd need someway to
connect the MicroSD directly to my computer, which is something I
currently do not have a mthod for. Are you suggested that I purchase
some sort of card-reader for my computer that will allow this MicroSD
to be connected to it?

Anyway, the software for creating my own Ringtones (which I mentioned
in my original email) is called Coding Workshop Ringtone Convertor and
it is where this WAP concept came from. Apparently WAP allows me to
have my computer become tied into my phone via the Internet. It all
seems like a lot of work just to move a Ringtone onto my phone.

Thxs again for any help.

The newer MicroSD cards come with a built in reader via USB port on the
computer. Looks a little like a USB Flash Drive. You could of course buy a
universal card reader from many computer stores which read all types of
cards and formats.

The easiest way to transport is via emailing the tone or photo directly to
yourself. I also use the vzwpix place and its been pretty simple.

You could also look at the owners manual to see how the cable connects. Look

This is what the music essentials kit looks like. And yes it seems to be
plugged into where the charging port is located.

Yes, the Music Essential Kit contains a usb data cable but it's NOT like
a typical usb cable that would come with a camera, music player, etc.
The usb cable for the 8300 is proprietary to LG. IIRC the usb cable for
the 8300 eventually breaks down to serial communications.

I for the life of me cannot understand why LG doesn't use a native usb
cable. This is my only gripe on the LG phones. I would think at the
bare minimal, going to native usb, would be more cost effective
manufacture wise.

OK, I'll up the ante on Omicron's question. My wife and I just got new
VX8300s. We like them so far, but my wife is disappointed that her favorite
ringtone from her old VX7000 isn't on the 8300. Is there a way, without a
nonsensical expenditure of time or money, to get that ringtone off the 7000
and onto the 8300? Alternatively, are the factory ringtones for the 7000
actually available somewhere on the Internet, so that I could download the
ringtone and mail it to my wife's phone as Elector suggests?

The desired ringtone is one that sounds like a steam train going by.
(Actually, more like a toy steam train, IMO, but my wife likes it. She claims
it keeps her ring from ever getting confused with anybody else's.)

Hello Elector,
OK....I'm getting there but am still in trouble.
I now the MicroSD for my phone (per your suggestion) AND I now also
have the ability to read and write to it from my PC (also per your
suggestion).
I also have one Ringtone on my PC for purposes of experimentation.
Can you direct me from here?
Do I create a specfic folder on the MicroSD in which to copy the
Ringtone?
If so, what name should that folder be called?
THEN, once the Ringtone is saved to the MicroSD and the card is placed
back into my LG VX8300 can you give the steps needed to get it visible
on the phone and, most importantly, how to use it as a Ringtone? Others
I've spoken with tell me that this concept that we've heading down will
NOT work. I'm hoping they are wrong!
Really appreciate your guidance here!

I answered this in your other post. You would go into the Tools
section of the phone select sounds, then highlight the sound use the
right soft key to set it as "default" or you would go into your
contacts list, highlight the sound section in the contact, look for
the sound in your main memory, I am not positive if it will be visible
from the sd card. Once found you would then sit it and then have that
person call you to try it out. I have done this with midi files sent
to myself to my phone and then selected them for the ringtone with no
problem.

Your sd card makes folders for sounds, videos and other files as well
as the ability for you to make one.
