There is no difference in the mp3 format for the BlackBerry 8703e. To get an mp3 on your BB, you have to have it uploaded to a website where you can download it. Emailing the mp3 to yourself doesn't work and I don't think mp3s can be loaded on the BB with DesktopManager.

There are some 3rd party apps that will create ringtones from mp3s on your PC and upload them to a website where you can download them. Or if you are creating the mp3 ringtone yourself, you'd have to upload it to a website where you can download it to your BlackBerry.

If you are trying to add a full song in mp3 format, it could be too large for the BB.

Get AUDACITY - import MP3 - then on the left side of the editor, click on the track name, and split the stereo track into 2 mono tracks - lower the sample rate from 32 bit FP to 16...EXPORT AS MP3, then email the file(s) to yourself on your BB, and your done!

thats how i do it, i've got some ICP, kottonmouth kings, slayer, fear factory, etc. ringtones on my 8703e...its wicked fun
