Your network blocked direct download. You will have to download to a PC then transfer to your phone.


Thanks!

1. Transfer the files to a location on your sd card.
2. Change the file extension of the mp3 file to 3gp or 3g2 (ex: song.mp3 -> song.3gp)
3. On phone go to Main Menu -> Tools -> Mass Storage -> File Manager -> Folder_where_you_placed_3gp- or-3g2_files
4. Hit "Multi Select" button on top, then select music file
5. Hit "More" at the bottom right
6. Hit "Assign As"
7. Hit "Ringer"
8. Proceed from last step !

Connect your phone or SD card to a computer open Windows Explorer (or My Computer) and view the file you wish to change. if you can't see the file extension, go to organize > Folder and Search Options, then click the View tab. Uncheck the box titled "Hide extensions for known file types"


Click OK. now you should be able to see the file extension: Right-click the file name and select Rename (or left-click and hold down the button for one second). enter the new extension. after entering the new extension, hit the Enter key.
