Unfortunately at&t's firmware did the same thing to the W580i. Any audio file can be used for a message alert - doesn't even need to be in the "ringtones" folder; yet, you had to make a < 600 kB clip of an MP3 and store it in the ringtones folder to use it as a ringtone.
So does anyone know if the 292k MP3 limit is AT&T imposed? If I debrand the phone will that limit disappear? This is so ridiculous, my W600 frp, 3 years ago had no limit, why do this now? Also, MP3's of any size can be used for message alerts, but ringtones where they're actually needed! So far the W760 has been almost a step down from my W600. Truly disappointing.

Funny to see my thread top the charts again...
One thing I can say...make sure all the parameters are correct. And by that I mean:
1) Make sure that it is a mp3 file (others are supported, but mp3 is just universally the best).
2) Stick to the <292kb limit.
3) Make sure it does not have DRM (Digital Right Media, i think) encryption on it. <---
That #3 might be your problem. If it is, find a DRM stripper program, or a reencoding program that will rerecord the song. I personally use Tunebite, but I'm sure there are others out there. Let me know how this works for you!

Hey martin any idea if there is an application, or if you know how to make an application for the w760 to edit songs to use as a ringtone?
Oh and I tried to mess around with the video ringtones thing to insert a soundtrack and use the video part as either a black screen or an actual video, but it seems that it doesnt work with wma or mp3, only m4a and sound recording, so any idea how long the m4a sound, size, bitrate can be to use as a video-ringtone?

I assume you want to use only a part of a music file for a ringtone. I did this using Windows Movie Maker which comes free with VISTA. I know it says "movie", but it works with music too. The details are more than I can go into here. Basically I imported the music file, trimmed off the parts I didn't want, saved it as a WMA and copied it to my phone's ringtone folder.
I guess you could use Movie Maker to make a video ringtone too, but the output from Movie Maker has to be converted into a format that the W760 supports.
