RingBack tones for the HTC TP2

Does anyone know how to use ringback tones for the TP2. Apparently the Sprint website does not support downloads of ringback tones for the HTC TP2.

I have a wav file under my device's Windows directory that is named HTC_RingBackTone. Does anyone know how to get it to work after the file has been customized?

Thanks,

Re: RingBack tones for the HTC TP2

Aren't ringback tones part of the network and not the phone? Is this what you are thinking of?

You are correct. The "ringback"/call tone is part of network functionality. It is what the callers hear when calling you. A ringtone is the one you, the device user, hears when someone calls your device.

Thanks Kirstein

That is what I thought too.

However, I have a wav file named "HTC_RingBackTone" under my device's Windows directory that an HTC support technician indicated to me that this particular file was for the ringing sound I hear when I am waiting for the person to answer the call I have placed towards them. (Which BTW when I open up this file "HTC_RingBackTone" it does play the ringing sound just like the ones we hear when making a call.)

???? I am a little unclear because I also saw on the Sprint website that the term Ringback Tone can also mean "call back tone" where those who are trying to make a call to another person hear a customized ring tone set up by the person they are trying to call. (ie. music, sound effect etc. while they are waiting for thier call to be answered.)

Here is that Sprint link
http://search.sprint.com/inquiraapp/ui.jsp?ui_mode=question&charset=iso-8859-1&language=en-US&user.status=prospect&user.site=safeharbor&quest ion_box=ringback+tone

As you can see, it says certain phones are not supported such as IDEN, RIM or Window based phones. Does that mean no call back tones peroid or just no call back tones that I can get from Sprint???

Anyone have a better clue than I do?

Thanks,

Re: RingBack tones for the HTC TP2

you can get calltones on a tp2 but its all done on the network side. There isnt anything you can modify on your phone to make a calltone work, you have to pay sprint the 2.50 if you want one
