Default Motorola T730

Hey all,

A few while ago I got a new cellphone, the Motorola T730.

I asked the salesman if I could download pictures and ringtones, he said that Aliant (which is my provider) didn't have that stuff setup yet, but they were going to soon.

So anyways I purchased the phone. I did see a Media Center on it, which had pictures and sounds pre-programed in it, like samples.

Anyways... months went by and I never thought more of it.
Then my friend gets a new cellphone and starts downloading ringstones and such on Aliant'* network. So I think... ok.. cool... now I can too.....

Except I can't..... the phone doesn't and never will support it.
I can "make" my own ringtones, but I can't download them. Nor can I download or make any images.

.... unless I hack it....

Anyone have one of these phones?
Or does anyone know a good site I can goto to get programs for hacking it?
I've been searching all day, and have found plenty for the T720, but that'* very different from my phone. It runs on Java which my phone doesn't support.

Anyways, just was wondering if anyone else here had that phone, and was as fustrated as I am.

If anyone is interested in doing it.... let me know.... what I did should work for any T720 or T730.

I currently have a Windows Pocket PC background... abd Beverly Hills Cop as my ringtone.... hehe

Nice! I sold that phone a couple of times when it first came out at Radioshack and I loved how good the ringtones sounded.

Hacked..... when the phone is designed specifically not for adding pictures or ringtones, I call that a hack. If I just pushed some buttons on the phone, and "unlocked" it, that would be another story. But actually re-programing the phone.... that'* a hack.

Have you looked into BitPim for your phone? It'* a neat, free, program for messing with your phone. Allows you to up/download data to/from your phopne through a USB data cable.

It'* what I use so I don't have to use up my PIX/TXT Messages

maybe u dont understand what unlocking a cell phone means.... u should look it up... unlocking the cell phone allows u to reprogram it...
most people use this feature so that can use 2 service providers on 1 phone

But, he'* just talking about adding Ringtones and such. That'* not really "Hacking" a phone.

Besides, it'* just terminology. Too many words are used for different things....

Two service providers on one phone?? No, most people use it to get free, illegal service on one phone. www.cellphonehacks.com/ is the place to go. Use the search, the guys there are real ********.

I'd say giving a phone a feature/ability that it doesn't have is a hack.
