I'm using the Verizon 8703, and it plays mp3s as ringtones just fine. I would recommend clipping down your mp3 file to 15-20 seconds.

As for loading the tones, I had to host mine on my personal webspace from my ISP. Then browse to 'em from your berry and save 'em. The mp3s will now show up in your music/alerts list when you are selecting various tones.

cheers!

Nevermind. Looks like you have to download them via the web browser.

I did exactly this. Took an .mp3 and cut it down to 20 seconds, hosted on my web server, and tried to access it from my phone. It said it was too big to pull up on the BB internet browser. Do you put it on your server just as .mp3?

For example, www.mydomain.com/song.mp3 ?????

Thats I tried, no luck.
