Myxer teams with The Orchard, brings 1+ million ringtones to Myxer.com

Hold the phone, Myxer fans: we’re bringing you some awesome ringtones to the site in the weeks ahead!

Last Thursday, we announced a history-making arrangement with The Orchard, a global leader in digital music and entertainment distribution. This deal brings more than 1 million new ringtones to the Myxer site.

Let’s put this into perspective: If you could somehow read the song title for each of these ringtones every second, day and night, it’d take you more than a month to read ‘em all.

Them’s a lot of ringtones.

We’re currently importing this killer content into our catalog, and will be releasing them on the site in waves. Expect 1.1 million tracks from thousands of bands, from hundreds of indie labels, including Definitive Jux, Park theVan, DIM MAK, BCD Music Group, Nuclear Blast, Greensleeves, Musart/Balboa and many more. Many of these will be premium ringtones, but some will be highlighted as ad-supported (free of charge) Myxer Picks of the Day.

“Myxer’s goal is to make it incredibly easy for people to get the mobile content they want, when they want it, period,” says our fearless leader, Myk Willis. “And our new partnership with The Orchard helps us further that mission.”

Rock on, a million times over. Hope you Myxer fans enjoy the new content!

Hellboy and Myxer join forces to combat evil!

Hellboy II at Myxer.com!

Hellboy II at Myxer.com!

There is a mystical membrane separating our world from the realm of fantasy and myth, held together by an ancient truce. But when that truce is shattered, Hell itself is about come to Earth!

That’s the world-ending calamity facing demonic good guy Hellboy and his allies in the new adventure flick Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Blending magic, mystery, high-octane action and lots and lots of monsters, Hellboy II debuted in theaters last Friday … and it’s been kicking demon (and box office) butt ever since.

Want to join the fight and save humanity from the monstrous horde? Snag a Hellboy II ringtone, wallpaper or video at Myxer.com! By arming yourself with the awesome Hellboy II anthem ringtone (composed by the brilliant Danny Elfman), or stunning portraits of Hellboy and his Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense buddies Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman as wallpapers, you’ll show your support for the red-skinned monster stomper. Acquire the movie’s trailer, show it off your friends and put evildoers in their place!

Best of all, this ad-supported mobile content is provided free of charge. So do your part to defend the planet from The Golden Army — and be sure to check out Hellboy II, in theaters now!

Latest Verizon Wireless News

I just wanted to let you all know that we are still working to be able to send ringtones directly to Verizon Wireless phones again. We’re making progress and hope to have it fixed soon.

In the meantime, please follow the instructions displayed after you click the ‘Send to Phone’ button and download the ringtone to your phone then send it to your phone using your favorite email program. It doesn’t matter which one you use. If it doesn’t work the first time or if you get an error message, please just try it again. It can be a little flakey sometimes, but it should eventually work.

Thanks for your patience. If you have a question, please send a note to our support team and someone will get back to you lickety split.

—- 7/31 UPDATE —-

Thanks for all of your posts. We’re still working on being able to send the ringtones directly. We’ll definitely let you know as soon as anything changes.

I’ve noticed a few posts suggesting copying the file to your sd memory card instead of using email. That’s a great idea! Using email is just one way to get the file to your phone. If you can copy it to your sd memory card that should work too.

Enjoy!

iPhone ringtones

Hey, everybody.

We’ve quietly introduced support for iPhone ringtones to Myxer. If you look at the main page for any item in the Myxer catalog, you’ll see a little “Download for iPhone” link under the phone number box that looks like this:

iPhone icon

Check out today’s Pick of the Day to see what I’m talking about.

When you click the link, you’ll be able to download a file to your PC that you can then import into iTunes and sync to your iPhone. Pretty cool, huh?

(We wanted to make the ringtones downloadable right from iPhone when browsing the Myxer site, but that’s not possible because of how Apple’s locked down the device. For now, you’ll have to use your desktop computer to pull down your tones.)

Have fun with it, and as always let us know if you have any problems or question.

Myk

— UPDATE – 7/2/2008 —

Hi again,

I just wanted to give all of you iPhone folks an update. As many of you have noticed, there is currently no Download to iPhone link if you customize a ringtone or make your own ringtone. Sorry about that.

We are working on adding that to our site and hope to have it available soon.  IWell keep you updated.

Marsha
