The buttons are really nice, slides easy, screen looks killer, got everything pretty much I even had a not so fancy version of the internet on email, google, all that good stuff overall a good phone but its not as fancy as a smartphone. But i like it

It'* simple. Myself and both of my kids make them all the time, they work great, it'* easy, and we just figured it out without reading anything.

Maybe. The next update should nail it, or just select a very recent similar phone, and it'll work. I did that with my first RAZR before the update came. Just called it a V600 and it worked great.

Now my comments come from an older version of MPT, perhaps the newer versions are better.

Yes the Melody Studio is fairly simple to use, but, for one thing, it doesnt allow you to zoom in on the file youre working with, so its difficult to tell where to start and stop your crop. This isnt a big deal on a 30-second mp3 clip, but quickly becomes a big deal on things like songs, which are usually at least 3-4 minutes long.

Audacity is just one of many tools available that provide great versatility, you can zoom in to 1/2 second increments, and I believe even farther than that if you like. It also has effects like amplification, so you can make the file play louder in a device with a fixed maximum volume, such as a phone. Great for mp3s that dont have tons of volume to start with.

You can also crop and combine multiple files in one sitting to create some truly custom ringtones. For example I took a base MP3 of Van Halen playing the Top Gun theme, and added radio chatter from the movie and jet flyby sounds...then combined it into one file. Try that with MPT.

Also for us phone users with limited phone memory, the ability to export in a lower quality is a good plus.

Audacity program http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/
LAME mp3 encoder (necessary for exporting mp3s from Audacity)
http://lame.buanzo.com.ar/


The easiest way to learn to use Audacity is to simply play around with it. I would recommend making a copy of whatever MP3 you choose, moving it to a different location, then open Audacity and click File>Open then find your copied file. It will then Import the file. To import additional files into the same "project" you can click Project>Import Audio and select your files. The mixing and timing can become somewhat tedious. If you have a desire to do that sort of thing I can explain the best I know about it.

But basically you zoom in however far you think you need to, using View>Zoom In, then highlight what you want to export and click File>Export Selection as MP3. The first time you do this it will ask you to locate the LAME encoder .dll file, which you should have somewhere, I store it in the same folder as the Audacity program.

Im far from proficient with it, but you can do some cool stuff with it. Then after its all said and done youll have an MP3 file that you can use MPT to transfer to your phone.
