    Arrow [FAQ] How to set MP3 songs as ringtones on Sony Ericsson W810 and others

    Some users may not be able to set MP3's as ringtones because some service providers disable this feature.

    The only way you can set MP3 ringtones is to either:

    1. DRM protect the MP3 ringtone using our free Online MP3 Maker (Details can be found here) or download DRM Packager
    2. Convert the MP3 to AMR using Mobile AMR Converter (Freeware). Converting to AMR does mean you will lose alot of sound quality.


    Any questions? Please post below.

    Try the following... After you have DRM protected the file, Connect the phone to the PC in 'Phone Mode' and not in 'File transfer mode'. Once in phone mode, open up the file manager using the software suite, double click the phone icon and drag & drop the DRM protected MP3 to the file manager window (not into the file folders), after the coping is done, the phone will ask what you want to use the mp3 as, which you can select as ringtone.

    Default SE W580i

    Sorry man. This doesn't work for the w580i. It won't even give the option to set the file as a ringtone. The method posted works fine on the older models but not on this one. Please help.
