How do I receive polyphonic ringtones?

Using your wap phone, navigate to

Choose the ringtone you want, push the "Options" button and select "Open Link". In a few seconds you should get a message saying 'Ringtone received". Save the tone and give it a name.

How do I receive a monophonic ringtone?

- Ringtone Composer Keypresses

Some Nokia models like the 3210, 3310, 3330, 3390, 8310, 8250 etc have a built in ringtone composer. You can use this to enter the composer keypresses found on this site. Make sure each character is entered exactly as it is displayed or else the ringtone won't be correct.

- Other Nokia models

For all other models there are a few methods to get the ringtone into your phone using RTTTL (Ringing Tones Text Transfer Language). You can either use Nokring to open the ringtone and send it to your phone as a message via SMSC, if your carrier supports it. If not, you can save the ringtone as a .txt file and use a program like Logomanager to upload it to your phone (requires data cable or infrared connection).


Alternatively you can also copy and paste the RTTTL's found on this site and send them to your phone using this handy website:

Is it possible to convert these Nokia ringtones to my Ericsson/Siemens/Motorola/etc

Coding Workshop make a ringtone converter program that can convert between just about every different ringtone format there is. Check it out here


Can you send the monophonic ringtones directly to my phone?

Unfortunately not, as this would mean I would have to charge for each ringtone sent.

Why are some 3210/3310 ringtones shorter than the MIDI?

The 3210/3310 is limited to 50 notes. I try to keep composer ringtones short, although occasionally one may be more than 50 notes- if you come across one please let me know.
