Verizon yuckiness

Well, it seems like Verizon has changed something recently which is causing some of the ringtones we are sending to be delivered as QCP files (which typically don’t sound as good).

[UPDATE 4/21: We think we've worked around Verizon's changes and gotten things working again. If you have a Verizon phone, make sure you've specified your phone model on the phone details page so that we can twiddle the right bits to get ringtones to you correctly.]

This is happening on the Motorola V3 Razr, Motorola V325, and possibly some other phones. There also seems to be something weird happening with the Samsung A950. That phone just doesn’t seem to be working anymore. We’ve had some users tell us that they are getting errors when they receive the message on their phone and others say that there is no sound attached. Aarg!

Please let us know if you are are having any problems or if you have found a new ringtone format that works better for your Verizon phone.

In the meantime, we are trying everything we can think of on our end. We’ll let you know if we find anything. Stay tuned…

    I agree with andy verizon is a bitch they are doin that so we cant make our way around having to buy $2.00 ringtones its a scam everybody swithc to cingular!

    It might be too early to know for sure whether this was an intentional action on Verizon’s part, a reflection of incompetance, or what. We’re going to keep working on this and let everyone know what we find out.

    I have a samsung A950 and they arent working with that phone anymore :(
    it just says there’s “no media attached”. it sucks.

    use AMR or AWB when you send songs to an A950 Samsung…worked for me.

  7. Polaris Supernova April 20, 2007 at 4:38 am #

    A950 Samsung, thank you person who left the comment before me, you are amazing. I tried the amr and I finally got it on my phone, but it sounded crummy. But AWB is perfect and sends, use it, it WORKS!

    An update, the good news is that the Verizon phones that used to be able to download ringtones are working again. Some phones (like the RAZR) don’t sound as good as they used to, but at least you can get the ringtones on your phone. If you’re still having problems, make sure you’ve selected the correct phone on the my account page. And if you’re still having problems, let us know.

    chocolate phones are not working … i get the message, but there is absolutely no sound. will this be fixed soon?

  14. Myk April 21, 2007 at 7:21 pm #

    Re: Chocolate not working.

    I think Mr. Cocoa should indeed be working now. Verizon users are the only ones that have to specify the phone that they use – make sure you’ve specified your phone model on the phone details page.

    Now, I’m not sure whether it was the same anonymous or another one that reported the same problem earlier…In any case, I think you should be working, and if not, please send us a note if you are still having problems.

  15. Ally April 22, 2007 at 5:10 pm #

    I have the Motorola Razr, but for some reason, the ringtone quality sent to my phone is very hard to hear. I’ve already changed my settings and it’s still the same. :\

    I have the SCH-A950 and yes there is something wrong with how it recieves ringtones now. Sometime it does say that there is no sound attached and I tried one today and it came back really horrible sounding. Anybody have any suggestions for a fix? I appreciate the site more than you know. Verizon is always trying to screw it’s customers with ringtone fees. Any help?

    the ringtones are definitely still not working for the chocolate

  19. Bill April 23, 2007 at 5:33 pm #

    We’ve verified that the Samsung SCH-A950 and the Chocolate (LG VX8500) are able to receive ringtones. They may not sound as good as they used to, but you should be able to receive them and set them as ringtones. The trick is that you now have to select your phone on the phone details page. If you’ve already selected your phone and it’s not working, please contact Myxer Support with the details of what you’re seeing so we can get things working for you.

  22. Ryan April 24, 2007 at 5:14 am #

    My Verizon RAZR still receives songs as QCP which might as well be belly button lint seeing you can’t hear the ringtone when you set it to play. Is there no way to make the mp3s turn back into MIDs? This blows…

  23. Samantha April 24, 2007 at 4:24 pm #

    Mine will only save as qcp on my RAZR V3C on Verizon. Even when my husband sends them from his LG (Which saves as MID w/ Verizon) to my phone…my phone still only saves as qcp! It sounds like CRAP!! I can hear them but the sound is so distorted that I can’t stand to listen to it at all!

  24. dnows32 April 24, 2007 at 11:04 pm #

    Yeah my chocolate isn’t working anymore, so verizon had to have done something. but thanks for all the ringtones to this point. hopefully this can be fixed.

  25. Anonymous April 25, 2007 at 3:31 am #

    I KNOW THE ANSWER send it in an .amr format!

  26. Samantha April 25, 2007 at 6:47 pm #

    sending it in .amr format didn’t make mine sound any better on my RAZR….if anything, it sounded worse than the qcp. i am going to try sending in other formats to see if any others work any better.

  27. Samantha April 25, 2007 at 10:08 pm #

    No luck…oh well, hopefully there will be a fix someday. In the meantime, thanks for all the great ringtones to this point…getting them through Verizon would have cost an arm and a leg.

  28. Katie April 26, 2007 at 12:39 am #

    Really nothing more we can do but wait until some kinda magic happens…this site is still doing a great job providing ringtones so we don’t have to pay a crummy fee…hopefully it’ll start working again soon!!

    I hope that the problem is fixed soon myself. It’s madness to spend so much on a tone! Anyhow, the only way that I could think of bypassing the glitch is by finding some way of saving the clip to the computer, then send it through the email. Is there any way to do that? It may take longer, but at least there’s potential that it’d bypass the glitch.

    I work for Verizon and not every phone is going to work, and if they do not every phone is going to sound good. its just the way the software is designed from the manufacturer on your phone. Thats why you need to get the LG-VX 9900 AKA the enV, it sounds so good with this phone. Thanx Myxertones!

    I read this somewhere and tried it… You can still make ringtones work and SOUND GOOD. I always sent .mid files (mp3′s renamed) using hotmail. Instead of naming them .mid, just name them .qcp. I believe Verizon ends up not compressing them because they are already named .qcp, and they sound just fine. You can still set them as your ringtones.

    I have a Verizon V325 phone and i can’t stand the fact that the ringtones sound like crappy recordings. I dont know if it was on purpose or not but Verizon better do some thing about it, or i’m gonna flip!! i must admit that some tones are better than others, i’m not saying that the’re good but its better.

    But the pix work fine.

    I have the verizon Samsung SCH-A970. I can get the ringtones on my phone and I can listen to them, I just cant add them as a ringtone. Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried sending the same ringtone in all of the formats and it still doesnt work.

    Just because some of you are not able to get ringtones from your phone clearly does not make Verizon Wireless a bad cell phone provider. Verizon is “America’s Most Reliable Wireless Network Provider” and will continue to be. Yes I am a VW employee and could tell you from experience that when I had my Sprint and Cingular phone I had horrible coverage and MANY MANY drop calls so go figure…Keep in mind that I have had VW for about almost a year now and when I need the phone in important areas only my VW phone worked. So do not hate because our plans our so expensive, hate because you just can’t afford to be on “America’s Most Reliable Wireless Network:

    ^ alright anyone who says this is a stuck up snob. some people just dont have the money to buy things. i like verizon and everythin but saying that you can’t afford something…thats just wrong.

    You guys I just found this out with help from a previous post here. And it works perfect, even without myxertones.

    All you need to do is manually edit the .mp3 file you want, for the section of the song you want as your ringtone, using some sort of sound editing app.

    Then send a pix message to a hotmail account or something you have.

    Then when your hotmail account has your phones’ address, send a blank email but attatch the .mp3 file and send it to your phone. Walaa.

    Hi Laxgal77 and Justin,

    Both the Samsung A950 and the LG VX9900 (enV) should work. Just go to the My Account -> Phone Details page and make sure you have the correct phone selected. Then go to the My Account -> Phone Preferences page and make sure that the ringtone format is set to “Choose Automatically” (which is the default.

    Try it again when you get a chance and it should work.

    If you have any specific questions about your account, please drop me a note,

    Good luck,
    Marsha from MyxerTones

    Has the problem with the tones not working on the VX9800 been fixed?

    mmmmmmmk of heres a solution to all verizon problems. of course we all know the company is stupid. go to the verizon web site. go to messageing, then go to picture and video messaging put ur curser there. and the first tab will say send video and picture mesaage blah blah…..anyways when u get there u’ll see that u can upload stuff well click that button and it will say you need an e-mail so just put anyone down u have. mmmmk this is the funny part. u can upload jpg pictures, animated pictures and u can also upload wav files…..mmmmk now! pictures will always go to ur phone if ur a verizon user. all u do is just put in the ur number where it saids send to and u dont need a subject. mmmmk now the wav files. all u gotta do is find a wav file that is a ringtone and just upload it there ha! ur done now get urself some ringtones lol dont tell verizon this or ur all screwd

    motorola razr V3m user here and the ringtones are coming through just fine but once i click on “save sound” and then go to my get it now section and click under my saved sounds, it won’t give me an option to save them as ringtones, so anyone have any suggestions or am i just out of luck and doom to be frustrated by this?

  127. mooseque June 1, 2008 at 6:50 pm #

    I have a Motorola Krazr and some of my ring tones come in as qcp or aac and can only be saved as sounds and not ringtones with Verizon account. If anyone has ideas how to save only as ringtone please let me know.

    hey everybody

    I have sprint and they do the same thing on my samsung m300. they come in as a pix message, and they dont play! I have experience with Verizon though and they convert to QCP because the phones can only play qcp! If you want to make them better quality follow these instructions.
    1. Download audacity at
    2. Take the MP3 or WAV file that you want to make a ringtone
    3. Trim it down in audacity to 30 seconds or less, to do this i put the little selector thing about where you want the ringtone to start, and fine tweak it, (select a little before or a little after) until you get it to the exact point that you want it to start
    4. When you have that, just drag to the right to when you want it to end. Your future ringtone should be highlighted now.
    5. I would play around with effects a little (although i didnt, bc i didnt no about them until recently) specificly high pass filter and normalize to get best sound quality. they can be found in the effects menu.
    6. ohh sry you will also need the lame mp3 encoder if you are going to do this with a mp3 to get it google lame_enc.dll download to get it then save it to somewhere where you can remember (i saved it to my documents) then back in audacity go to edit/preferences/file formats then under mp3 export setup click find library and find lame_enc.dll on your computer and click open
    7. Then when you are happy go to file/export SELECTION as mp3 (selection, very important) or file/export selection as wav if you dont want to get lame or if you arnt working with an mp3, (but this guide is covering mp3)
    8. When you have your mp3 ringtone, go to and upload your file, select purevoice qcp as output format, click ok, in a few seconds, something will come up, leave the first setting alone but turn the second one ON (it makes the ringtone sound better), click ok, and in a few seconds you can download your qcp ringtone. (for verizon you dont have to go through the conversion if you r using vzwpix, bc it converts them 4 u but if u want 2 save them as a ringtone, convert online)
    9. Get a method of transferring to your phone, i used a usb cable but you can also use pix msging, bluetooth, infered etc. usb cable might be hard to come by so to get one search ebay for your phone make and model here usb cable. make sure it comes with a driver b4 u buy tho! ur probably gonna need a microsd card 2 if u hav a phone such as the EnV aka vx9900. suprisingly, most phones from verizon actually support mp3s from bitpim, a shocker from verizon, because i have sprint and my phone only supports qcp :(
    10. if u r using cable or blutooth, download bitpim from
    11. to find out how to do it for verizon phones, you can go to help/tour/on the left side phones find your phone (if its not in there i cant help u) and if your with verizon ur gonna be interested in howtos, (if ur lucky enough to hav a phone that supports mp3 ringers look in notes, then scrap the whole conversion process and good for u!) but if u dont then look in the howtos and ull find out how to save ringtones 2 ur phone.
    12. when u connect ur phone it will find itself if its in the list
    13. when u hav the ringtones where they r supposed to be in bitpim, go ahead and click the send data to phone icon, the 2nd one from the left
    14. ur phone will power down
    15. turn it back on and navigate to the mycontent/ringers etc on ur phone, and cross ur fingers! if theyre there graat! but if theyre not u have some googleing to do
    16. select the one u want, options/set as/voice call or etc
    17. and ur done!
    hope this helped u!
    little request, will someone plz copy and paste this on to a mobile phone forum such as cuz, well its a long story but forums dont work for me!
    thx :)

    I have a Motorola Slvr (L7) that used to work perfectly with sending ringtones, but now only saves incoming mps as “sounds” and not as “ringtones”. Lame.

    Try keeping the file under 100k, anything over that and verizon coverts it to qcp. hopes this helps.
