Question: How do I transfer ringtones with the RTTTL (or Nokring) format?
This method applies to European GSM Nokia cell phones, most of which handle RTTTL ringtones sent using a special software.
First, you will need something to connect your phone to your computer. If your phone has infrared communications (Irda), such as most new Nokia phones, and your computer has it too (for example, most laptop have an infrared communications port), you can connect through these devices. Otherwise, you will need a data cable that you can purchase at many specialized stores.
Once you have your connection, you will need a special RTTTL transfer software, such as Logo Manager, Nokring or the Nokia Data Suite. You can buy the Nokia Data Suite in specialized stores or at Nokia's web site, but there are also freeware and shareware programs that you can use.
Of course, you will also need to find Nokia RTTTL format ringtones. Be cautious, they may be tricky to recognize compared to other ringtone formats. A Nokia RTTTL format ringtone is always composed of 3 parts: first the name, then a colon, a few tempo and scale indications such as &o=4&, another colon then the actual ringtone, composed of a series of text notes (such as &4a8&) separated by commas. On the web, they are often refered to as &Nokring,& &RTTTL,& sometimes mistakenly RTTL (there are really 3 &T&) or simply &Nokia& ringtones.More Cell Phones Q&A
