Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California, and today, I'm going to show you how to send ringtones from your phone to another phone. Most phones do not support this feature. If you use Verizon, Sprint, MetroPCS, and some carriers like that, you will not be able to send ringtones from your phone to another phone. What you're going to have to do is either save it directly to the memory card where you can then move the memory card from one phone to the other, or you can email it if you're using a BlackBerry or a PDA device. You can attach it as a file in an email and then send it to your email address to be retrieved later on. You can also, many times, send it with a Bluetooth, depending upon what kind of phone you have. If you have a lower end phone like this Motorola right here, you're not going to be able to do that. To send the ringtone in an email, what you want to do is go into your message inbox or outbox, which, you know, applies as both. Select the menu key, compose email, type in the to address that you want to send it to, and the subject. And then come down here to the body of the message. Select the menu key, scroll down here to attach file, go into wherever the ringtone is saved -- device memory or media card -- and I have mine saved on the media card. There's one folder right there that says BlackBerry, so we go under that one. Scroll down here to ringtones and click it. And it's now attached in the...in the email. So I can then select an address to send it to, and then type in a short message so that when I...when I receive it, I know what I'm looking at. To send a ringtone with a Bluetooth, what you want to do is come down here to your...where you save your media. It says media, but that also means music, pictures, ringtones, video, and so on. Scroll over here to ringtones. Find the ringtone that you want to send. So scroll down here to send using Bluetooth, and then it comes up with a list of the devices that you'll have paired with your phone. You need to make sure that you pair the device that you're trying to send it to to your phone before you go in and do this because if you go in and do this, you're only going to get this short menu with devices that have already been paired to your phone.
