I have been given a Samsung SGH-D600E phone (a hand-me-down:) which is a T-Mobile branded (UK) version.

I have deleted all the SMS tones from the phone with the original idea of putting my own on it. However after using the file manager software to put midi (.mid) files in the downloaded sounds folder on the phone, I do not have an option to select them.

(Although the phone can play them if I browse them in the file manager on the phone)

So how do I either a) restore the original files b) use my own mid files (preferred)?

I have read that you can utilise a firmware update to improve the phone, but these are implemented by 3rd parties and thus I guess not sanctioned by Samsung?

Or is it because the midi files need to be a certain type?

I'm not sure how it works in the UK, so I apologize in advance if the system is a little different than what I can suggest.

I do know here that T-Mobile has their own stores, and some of them have service centers. You might see if they can take your phone and restore it to original factory standards.

We do update our phones in conjunction with the carriers, so firmware updates may be available. Third-party firmware updates? I wouldn't. Third party regular applications might be better.

I do know that most, if not every phone has a keycode option to restore the default factory settings. How to access that for your particular model isn't something I have, but your carrier does have it.

What you might do is call in, say that you're ready to give the phone to a friend (or received it), and you want to start fresh, and could they assist with defaulting the phone back to factory settings - but I suggest doing it from a landline, and not the phone itself.

Keep me posted.

Figured it out

Thanks for the reply. I figured it out. The midi files that I deleted where for the ring tone only, not the SMS message tone. The latter seem to be hard coded cannot be changed! Sad

I've deleted all the midi tones and replaced them with mp3s instead which are much better.

btw, I found to be a great resource for free themes, ring tones etc.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
