In case anyone has a Sprint V3m with similiar questions and want answers, I found them here;
Does music need to be in a certain format for this phone?
I have installed Motorola phone tools 4.36 version software and have tried to transfer music files to my phone without any luck.
The message on the phone will state the following;You can buy music from the sprint music store, or you can load music from your PC. I have tried both MP3 and WMA so far and they will load into a "mixed media" folder on the phone but the phone doesn't acknowledge the files being there.
Checking the Sprint store, they state the following; When you purchase and download a music file from the Sprint Music StoreSM, you get two versions of the song: one to download and play on your phone (file type: AAC+), and another to download from http://musicstore.sprint.com and play on your PC (file type: WMA).
I am not familiar with an AAC+ music file. If thats to say that I must re-buy those same songs again in this different format from Sprint @ $2.50 a pop is sheer madness! Not to mention that each includes a WMA version that I allready own.
