Default Best file format for ringontes?

Please Login to Remove!

According to FAQ page BB supports quite a few audio file formats:

(I'm new so I'm not allowed to post proper URL links; just put http :// and no www at the beginning)

On the other hand, some websites with ringtones, like Audiosparx, offer files in different formats:

Which format would be the best, in this particular case the choices are:

MP3
WAV-PCM-16
WAV-PCM-alaw
AMR-NB

It looks like AMR-NB has the smallest file size:

Agreed on the MP3. 7xxx users are limited to midi format

Best for what, specifically? Best is meaningless if you don't qualify what you mean.
