Default Ringtones on 8700r and 8700c

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any 3rd party sites like Hangango where I can get a program to download ringtones to my 8700r or my 8700c WITHOUT a data plan to download from the server?

Thanks.

You should be able to use the Desktop Manager to transfer ringtones to your device, as long as you have the 4.2 handheld OS installed on your BlackBerry and the 4.2 version of the Desktop Manager. The ringtone would have to be saved to your computer and then you can transfer it.

You won't be able to download anything over the air without a data plan.

Thanks for the reply. I tried this but I am with Rogers and I could only get the 4.2 OS for the Device Manager and the most current OS for the handheld is 4.1 and 4.2 is needed to be able to use Media Manager so I presume that this will not work with Rogers.

Yup -- they're the same device. Carrier branding of the OS doesn't matter.

Default Volume

I just downloaded the 8700C device software to my 8700r as recommended and it works great! The ONLY problem I now have is that all the alarms, notifications and ringtones are very low in volume, even when the level is set at high. Any suggestions?
