Sometimes I get the feeling that South Florida (which is where Myxer is based) was actually a suburb of New York.Â Lately, though, the Bostonions seem to be outnumbering Yankees around here.
Case in point: a whole new batch of original Red Sox ringtones popping up on Myxer.Â Check out this batch featuring A-Rod, Manny, Jeter, and Ortiz…
Not a Red Sox fan? Make your own original stuff and let us know about it!

The MidPoint Music Festival is winding up tonight in Cincinnati, and it’s great to report that there are tons of MyxerIndies all over the town! Myxer was the official ringtone provider for the festival, which explains why there are so many great free ringtones being given out — check out MidPoint’s Bands page to see the list of bands and get links to their stuff.
Several of us from Myxer have headed up there to hang out with our bands and rock out in the Midwest. Come to think of it, between the lingering “aftershocks” from Atlantis last week, and the draw of Dewey Beach which is also going on right now, the Myxer offices are just about vacant right now. Marsha? George? Steve? Where are you guys? I hope you remembered to wear underwear with your name and hotel address on it so that you can be returned by whoever finds you at the end of the night…
Speaking of Atlantis: I was in Atlanta for the party and had a great time. I met a lot of cool people, and really enjoyed the event and the city. Did I meet you there?
If you see us at any of these events, please stop by and say hi! We don’t get out of our cages very much, so we love to meet up with everybody at the shows. And if you’re going to a show or conference you think we ought to check out, by all means shout it out!

***12/6 UPDATE***Â Â
Finally, some good new. We have just (and I mean just) updated our site with a new, more reliable way to send ringtones to Verizon phones.
Give it a try when you get a chance. It should work much better this time.
Good luck. Let me know how it goes (good, bad, or indifferent… but hopefully good). http://www.myxertones.com/feedback/.
First of all let me say, “Happy belated Thanksgiving!” to everyone. I hope at least some of you were able to download some of our featured Thanksgiving ringtones. I know you don’t usually think of Thanksgiving and ringtones, butÂ itÂ turns out thatÂ rapping Pilgrims are pretty popular.
Anyway… I just wanted to let you know that the message delivery still seems to be all over the place. For whatever Verizon was delivering more of the messages we sent for a while, then things got backed up for a few days,Â and nowÂ some people are saying they are getting their messages again.
We are still working on adding that new, more reliable way to send the messages to all you Verizon folks. Sorry it has taken a little longer that we first hoped, but we really are getting close now (really). Hang in there. I’ll post again as soon as it’s ready.
Â ***10/17 UPDATE***Â
Well, I have at least some good news. People are starting to say that they are getting at least some of the messages we are sending. I know it’s not great, but it’s better than nothing.Â
I have noticed some comments where folks are encouraging you to change the SMS Address on your account. Be careful. TypicallyÂ that will cause even more problems.Â Changing your SMS Address toÂ your vtext addressÂ willÂ probably notÂ work. We can’t attach the ringtones and wallpapers to vtext messages and most (non-smart) Verizon phones can’t follow a link.Â Some people say that if they send the messages to your email address, then forward them to their phone it works. It might. Our testing shows that sometimes that works and other times it doesnâ€™t. IfÂ you try it and it doesnâ€™t work then make sure to go back to the My Account -> Change SMS page and eraseÂ your SMS Address (blank is the default).Â
We are still working a quicker/more reliable way to send ringtones to Verizon phones and hope that is going to be ready soon.Â Stay tuned…
Â ***10/3 UPDATE***
WeÂ haven’t forgotten about you Verizon folks. We know that most ofÂ the messages are still not being delivered. The good news it that it looks like some messages got deliveredÂ a couple of nights ago, butÂ unfortunately, it seems to be allÂ plugged up again.
We’ve heard from some people that they have contacted Verizon and they say that it is our fault. Well, I find that hard to believe since other free content providers are experiencing the exact same problem.
Anyway, we are working to find other/better ways to deliver content on Verizon and hope to have something available soon, real soon.Â
Thanks for your patience and support. I’ll post again as soon as I have some good news.
As some of you may have noticed, messages delivery to Verizon phones has been extremely slow recently. Some of you may be receiving the messages hours after you request them and others may not be receiving them at all.Â Â Â
Sorry for all of the delays. We send the messages as soon as you request them, but (for whatever reason) the Verizon network is refusing to accept them. Until the situation is resolved, you may receiveÂ also receive an email that says,Â ”SMTP: connection refused”.Â Â
The good or bad news (depending on your view) is that other content provides are also having problems connecting to the Verizon servers recently.Â Â
Sorry again for the trouble. We’re working on it. Trust me, we want it to work as much as you do. Please check this blog from time to time for the latest updates.Â Â

First of all, let me say it has been a great pleasure to speak with MySpace about the problems our users have had getting MyxerTags to work on their site. I’m happy to say that – Oh, wait! Silly me, I forgot! We couldn’t get anyone at NewsCorpSpace to answer a single email, phone call, or smoke signal. We got blown off without so much as a scripted email response from their “support” department, which is really annoying.
Introducing the Myxer Facebook Application…
So in completely unrelated news, we’ve been busy building deep integration with Facebook, and we’re happy to announce the general availability of the Myxer Facebook application. This thing’s pretty cool. It lets you link your Myxer account to your Facebook account so that, for example, you can share your favorite MyxerTones really easily with your Facebook friends.
You can also search and explore all MyxerTones content right from within Facebook, and there are lots of little bells and whistles scattered about. Check it out and let us know what you think!
Oh, and you’ve probably also noticed that we’ve done a little refresh of the site’s colors and layout. One thing we’re trying to do is get pages to load faster to make browsing a better experience for people, and we took the opportunity to spruce up some of the interfaces. We’re still kinda figuring out how to best arrange some of our key pages, so bear with us if stuff seems a little out of place.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
