Blackjack II Ringtones above 300kb - here's the hack
OK - I have been looking for this for a long time so here it is. I Just got this working and it works perfectly.  You can now play standard MP3 files on your Blackjack II without conversion, regarless of size! 
 
  1. You need a regedit program so download and install one.  I got one here.
  2. Go into HKEY_Current User → ControlPanel → Sounds
  3. Then hit the "Values" button to display the values
  4. Delete the key of FileSizeLimit
Presto!  Now you can use your MP3s as ringtones without modification.

I've sync'd my phone, now how do I find this:
2. go into HKEY_Current User-->Control Panel-->sounds?
 
I'm not very good when it comes to computers... please somebody tell me where to find that? Is it suppose to be on my desktop or on my phone?

please take no offense...but if youve already read through the previous posts and still dont know what "2." refers to, perhaps you shouldnt be attemping to edit your registry. the last thing you want to do is brick your phone.....
 
if not, google "mobile registry editor". also, youll have to app unlock your device in order to make any registry change stick. if you still have problems following this thread, try following the writeup over at i607.org

Kathryn,
 You really need to be careful when altering the registry!  Until you read up to learn more on what to do and how to do it, I'd say go here for some good tweaks that don't require "you" to personally mess with the registry. Download the file for "Increasing Max Ringtone Size from 300KB to 25MB," sync with your device, transfer the file to your device, run the file... http://www.myblackjack2.com/category/hacks-and-mods/registry-hacks/

I did what you said and deleted the registry key, but now it says that the file has to be less than 0kb. What is the code to restore the key and change the value to a different number?

i downloaded the registry thing, but i dont know how to access the hkey current users type stuff.

i downloaded it, and it made a "phm registry editor" folder. nothing i can actually click on and open and use, (everything is in .rar files) except the "setup.exe" when i open up trhe setup.exe, it just shoes me add/remove programs from my phone....

I'm new at this, and I tried to download the hack but during the installation process, a pop-up says, "There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

Is there any way you could assist me with this problem?

it doesnt matter which platform you sync your phone to, as the registry youll be editing is on the phone, and not your mac. it would be different if you were trying to edit your registry remotely using your mac, but thats not the case here.

just did the hack.

You just open the file from your desktop on your computer, your phone must be plugged into the usb.  Then Mobile Registry opens up your registry.  I changed the value to 4000000000 or 4 billion.  The max it will do is like 469..... it will actually tell you the max value when you type too many digits.  not sure if any of this is clarified but i'm not going through 17 pages of this.

my too on which download - the seduction part. I however have a BJI w/ WM6. The windows upgrade reduced the file size on ringtones where WM5 didn't. So glad to see this fix now I can use the ringtone I'm used too.  You da man Captain America
 
I was a little confused on the "value" button issue though untill I saw someone mention to double click the little ab button.

I found the easiest way to hack the ringtone limitation. Somebody have been developing 'JackTweak' which is a special hacking software for exclusively Samsung BlackJack.

http://www.careace.net/contents_careace.aspx?did=169&pid=2

It also has features that 'Reset the recent program list', 'Change rington size', 'Set system Cashe size to 1MB', 'Set graphic cache limit to 32MB'

However, remember! you need to unlock application to use all the features.

Thanks CaptainAmerica!
Your directions worked perfectly on my WM 6.1 upgraded Blackjack II. The only thing that happened was when I followed your directions and deleted the values and tried to leave it blank, it said the ringtone could not be bigger than 0 kb's. I went back and instead of leaving it blank, I put in something like 40200000 and it worked WONDERFULLY!!! =)
