Seems ringtone behavior has changed on a lot of the Verizon phones. We are getting more and more recent feedback about lots of Verizon phones being affected. Weâ€™ve heard feedback about ringtones no longer sounding as good as they used to, getting error messages when trying to download ringtones, no ringtone attachment with the ringtone message and ringtones can only be saved as a sound. Weâ€™re still trying to figure out exactly which phones have been affected and what, if any, workarounds are available.
We’ve got ringtones working (and sounding good) on more phones with the latest updates we’ve just made to the site.Â Be sure you’ve set your phone details correctly and don’t have any ringtone overrides set if your phone is listed as working below.Â Here is what we’re currently seeing:
Audiovox CDM-8940 works
LG â€“ seems like most are working again but weâ€™ve specifically tested the following:
Motorola â€“ mixed results
working â€“ Razr (V3), E815, V710, Krzr (K1M), L7C
sort of working â€“ V325 (doesn’t sound very good, but you can set it as a ringtone)
We just tried the Razr again and the ringtone is saved as a sound but you can still set it as a ringtone from ‘Get It Now’.
Nokia 6315I works
Samsung â€“ mixed results
working – SCH-U series (SCH-U740, SCH-U620)
not working – SCH-A series (SCH-A870, SCH-A930)
SCH-A950 seems to work with AWB or MP3 format sometimes
We have received feedback that AMR or WAV works on the SCH-A series so you could try those formats. However, WAV files are very large which cause the ringtones to be fairly short (6 to 10 seconds).
We are seeing new developments every day so stay tuned, we’ll keep the blog updated.
