New Samsung phone can’t set MP3’s as Ringtones…

SamsungWow, this is awful, the Samsung phone from T-mobile only plays DRM’d ringtones, you can’t make your own – “The new slim Samsung RAZR-like slider phone just released today won’t let you play our own mp3s as ringtones, they have to be the DRM’d version to work. which means, you have to pay for ringtones, even if you already have your own mp3s to load on there. There seems to be a solution in the discussion, but seriously, it feels like T-mobile is trying to suck every bit of money out of their customers after they already shelled out 300 bucks for this phone and also make you pay twice for a song you already bought.” Thanks Phil!

    Sprint has been doing this same thing on the (at least) the Sanyo MM-5600. There are workarounds that involve converting your mp3 to other formats (3gp?) but yeah, making short-term money for stockholders trumps making happy long-term customers.

    Also true of the Sprint Samsung MM-A940. Jerks want you to spend $3 for a song you already purchased elsewhere.
