Using custom ring tones on the Verizon XV6700
I just got the Verizon XV6700 PDA camera phone and am already having a lot of fun With its Windows Mobile 5.0. I found that you can actually use any Windows wave file as ring tone for the phone. There are two directories where Windows Mobile 5.0 will search for your custom ring tones. The first directory is "\windows\rings". Put any wave file in this directory and Windows Mobile 5.0 will see it as a ring tone for your phone.
Typically, saving wave files to "\windows\rings" will use up the memory built-in to the phone. To conserve The built-in memory, you can store ring tones to the second directory that Windows Mobile 5.0 will search for sound files. That directory is the root directory of your storage card. The root directory is the top-most directory of a storage device. The vx6700 has a miniSD card slot, which can handle plenty of capacity. So you'll be able to store a lot of sound files.
To select your custom ring tone, open up the "Phone" application, tap the "Menu" button on the bottom right, and select "Options...". Finally, in the "Settings" screen, you can scroll your custom ring tones and play them all. When you've select the ring tone you like, tap on "ok" to choose it.
I just upgraded to the Verizon XV6900 (HTC Touch), which is running Windows Mobile 6 (WM6). The technique outlined in this thread works just as well on the XV6900 as it does on the XV6700. I've also noticed that WM5 and WM6 can even use WMA files as ring tones.
WM5 litters the ring tone files in its "\Windows\" directory, so it's really difficult to copy them to use on your new phone. So I've also written a MortScript program to copy them all onto your storage card. You can download this program from this "Copy WM5 Ring Tones.mscr (GPL)" thread. On the other hand, WM6 manages it's ring tone files quite well in the "\Windows\Rings\" directory.
