Lightbulb How do I increase the ringtone length of the .wav file I've set as my ringer?

Please Login to Remove!

I edited a song to a 20 second length on Garage Band on my Mac. I transferred the song as a .wav file to my Blackberry 8100 via Bluetooth. Within the media file organizer on my Pearl, I'm able to play all 20 seconds of the song but when I set the .wav file as my ringtone, it only plays 2 seconds or so when someone calls the phone. How do I change the settings so my ringtone will play all 20 seconds of the song?

Thanks.

Call your carrier and ask them to increase the ringtime on your phone before it goes to voicemail. I think 30 seconds is the max.

Also, after you have created the lengthy tone like you state above, set the number of rings to 1, it should play more of the ring, rather than only a couple of seconds.

This sounds like it would work but the problem im having is that there is no option to select number of rings, only the number of vibrations or a repeat notification option with a "LED flashing" and "none" as the only selections.

Default 8100 Pearl: Possible Fix for How To Increase Length of Song Ringtone Played

After reading through a few threads, it looks as though the .mp3 or .wav set up for your ringtone needs to be less than the .5MB I'll try it out tonight and see if that increases the length of the song played. If anyone else has had any luck with this, please let me know.

The Pearl does absolutely have the ability to vary the number of rings from 1 to 3. Look under your Profiles, edit the Active Profile, and Phone, Edit. Adjust both IN HOLSTER and OUT OF HOLSTER. You will see a choice NONE, TONE, VIBRATE or VIBRATE+TONE, for VOLUME from mute to high, Number of beeps from 1-3.

You cannot adjust the number of vibrations on a BB. That is stuck at 2.

Does that help?
