Q. Why can't some phones not receive
ringtones by SMS or wap download?
Short answer: because many cell phone service
providers ask the manufacturers to block that possibility, so
that their subscribers are forced to buy their ringtones instead
of downloading some for free.
But there is no rule of thumb: some Samsung
phones, for instance, will not offer a &save& option when
browsing to a MIDI ringtone through the wireless Internet, but
others will... Sprint PCS phones don't offer a save option, but
most of their phones can still accept downloaded ringtones by
using the special GCD format found on this site.
