I Lost My Cellie in El Segundo

Originally uploaded by ultraclay!
With Apologies to A Tribe Called Quest, I did lose my cell phone in the hotel, which is actually in El Segundo.

Thankfully someone turned it in to the Lost and Found. There's something to be said for having a phone no one wants to steal. I had just managed to finally get all my numbers synched across all my devices, I'd have been pissed if I had to do that all over again.

I also discovered how to use my own MP3s as ring tones on the SLVR, which I wondered for ages. I found it on the Interweb posted by someone named UVADaniel. I've reposted it after the jump.

First, make sure your phone is set to handle both iTunes and data

right click on mobile phone in iTunes and click phone options

Under phone, check "enable disk use"

Next transfer MP3s to memory card by drag-and-drop into [Phone/mobile/ringtones]

Disconnect the phone

On the phone, go into My Stuff > sounds

Push the menu button and switch storage device to the card

select the MP3 you just transfered, push the menu button and select move

Move the song to the phone

On the phone, it can be set as a ringtone.

[One edit made to make it more Mac-friendly. ]

Now I have to figure out what to use that won't be totally annoying.
