You need OS 4.2.x.xxx on your 8700g in order to transfer them. You can check by going to Options >About and check your OS version.

Then you'll need Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 with Roxio Media Manager to transfer the files. You'll be limited to 2.86 MB per file. Don't load too many of those as the 8700 doesn't have much memory space.

You may need to download it from below to make sure you have the version that will support transferring media:

BlackBerry - BlackBerry - Sys Req V4-2 Pack 2


Once that's installed you'll need to download and install on your PC the OS installation package for 4.2 for your device. You can find those downloads here:

BlackBerry Operating System Downloads - BlackBerryFAQ

Also, at the top of the 8700 forum there should be a sticky with the latest version of the software for the 8700. Read through that and download that software if you desire.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, 4.3 DM has been out for a while. It does have some bugs, I still recommend 4.2 SP2 to most people.

SHort version:
You need two pieces of software: Desktop Manager (use v4.2) and the HANDHELD OS for you 8700. Download v4.2 of the handheld OS for the 8700 to your PC.
Execute the program you just downloaded to install the Handheld OS to your PC
Locate and delete vendor.XML on your PC C: drive
Start Desktop Manager - it will upgrade your 8700.
GIVE IT SOME TIME - the upgrade can take 30-45 minutes.

You should have a Media Manager on your Desktop Manager; it can move ringtones to the 8700.

What you need to do is go to www.blackberryfaq.com and find the link that talks about upgrading your OS on your handheld. There are step by step instructions in there. It is quite an easy thing to do. You can also find the latest versions of the OS at that site too. The one that I use is Tmobile USA v4.2.1.107 and it runs very well on my 8700g. Good luck.

pnt1, if you read this thread you'll see you must OS 4.2 in order to move media via the USB. It would be easier to just email the ringtone to your self.
You PIN is located at Options > Status.
Good luck.

Good luck.
You can't actually save the ringtone if you email the .mp3 file to yourself. You will have to email a link to the file on a hosting site. I send my ringtones to my webspace provided by my isp and then navigate my BB broswer to that space and download the ringtone....Is there a way to save from an email? I've never been able to.

If you don't have a data plan your only option would be to upgrade to OS 4.2.x.xxx and use the desktop manager like the above posts suggest.
