Installing a New Ringtone

Installing a new ringtone on your handheld is actually pretty simple once you figure out how to do it and find a source for them. Unfortunately, there is very little guidance on how to install them and most carriers do not include BlackBerry handhelds in their ringtone sections. Also, installing a ringtone requires the use of a web browser, and cannot be done any other way.

BlackBerry ringtones are really just Standard MIDI files. MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and was one of the first standards for making music on the computer.
