-4 votes Wrong specs


Data specs are wrong - SGH-i900 model is not tri band UMTS, it only supports UMTS 2100. UMTS850/1900 is not supported - no 3G in USA. Also, HSDPA top speed is 7.2mbps, not 3.6mbps

TouchWiz UI doesn't compare to Apple's multitouch, but that's more of a winblows mobile vs OS X issue

how to set mp3 ringtone in samsung i900

-3 votes RE: how to set mp3 ringtone in samsung i900

In regards to your question all you need to do is go to the Main Menu, Settings, Sounds & Notifications. Once on there click on the Notifications tab and look for your tune under Ring tone.

It seems to me that the phone lists all your ringtones regardless of where you have stored them.

This will not work for large files. My MP3 is 4MB in size and I still didn't find a way to set it as a ringtone :-(

Put your ringtones onto your extra storage card and they will be picked up under ringtones when you go to sounds and notifications. The files must be loaded straight onto your card and not into a folder. Trust me, this works. I have loaded 130 mp3's so far.

Exactly how is that done? I've had my phone a week, my storage is full and I can't figure out how to move it onto my card!! I've exhausted all energies and pulled most of my hair out!!!

you've probably already figured it out but all you have to do is connect it to your computer, ActiveSync will pop up and click the Explore Files button. Then click My Windows Mobile and then my storage. STORE EVERYTHING THERE!! I had to manually erase everything from the phone and just reloaded into there cuz i couldn't figure out the best way to do it but now i just save everything there! Hope this helps!

Make sure when you go to Settings, Sounds and Notifications, Notifications...that you scroll up or down the list. If you don't scroll, you will not see all of the Ringtones on the list.

I didnt get this for ages thanks for clearing it up

Just to clarify what he said, just find the file you want in file explorer on the phone. Hold down on it the track and copy it. Go to my device, my documents, my ringtones and paste it in their. Once the file is in the hold down on it again and set it as ringtone.

method #1: Copy the mp3 or your choice of music file to My Device\My Documents. Any mp3 there could be set as ringtone for SMS, call, etc. Basically any event could be customised with the music file placed here.

method #2: Copy the file to My Storage. You will have to keep the file on the root folder of the16GB storage space. Similar to method 1, any files placed here could be set to any events.

method #3: Place the file in My Device\My Documents\My Ringtones. Files are can be set as caller ringtone only.

method #4: From any folder, just right click on the audio file (tap and hold), select Set As Ringtone. The system will copy the file to the folder mentioned in method 3 and set it as the caller ringtone.

you need to copy your mp3 file into the folder of the ringtones, after doing this go to the sound settings and it will appear there, select it and done. n_n

Hi Andrea,

I had this issue for a while and discovered that it appears to happen when you have the Autolock on (i.e. lock handset after a period of time) - if you switch that off you then press and hold the call end key and it will lock the device again as per the manual!

-2 votes Key Lock

Thanks Adam. Thanks for the reply. But I can't find where the Autolock setting was. Can you help me on this?
BTW, do you have any recommendation for add on programs?

-4 votes key lock and changing ring tone


Andrea i am having the same problem, i have held end key to lock keys but screen turns black for half a sec then back on - keys are functional again so basically doesnt work! any tips. Second problem is i cant change my ringtune. I have MP3 track on library and that now plays fine but when go to change it through ring options still only have the factory setting ones to choose from, im getting really fustrated with it now - its just these little things like this that niggle at me making me think i should have gone for a nokia again! Please help as i do like the touch screen and the internet works well and the texting is surprising great but these other two things are driving me made. Thanks all


-4 votes Soultion

It puzzled me to at first, but then realised the default ringtones are part of the phone memory and not storage. All you need to do is transfer the MP3 you want as your ringtone but be sure to save it under the ringtones folder that's stored on the phone memory and not the seperate like 8/16gb storage drive. Do this through the Windows Mobile software or something, you'll then see the track appear! =)

-2 votes Changing ringtone

Matt, to set you mp3 as your ringtone, all you need is you can save it at the my ringtone file(start>programs>file explorer>my documents>my ringtone) or i realise if you have your mp3 in the storage card, it still can be set as your ringtone. Just don't save the mp3 in folder. You can find your mp3 thru the drop out list during the ringtone settings. (start>settings>sound & notifications)You can set the MP3 for message tone, alarm tone too.Hope it help you.=)
