Verizon Ringtones

Hello. First post and not very technically inclined here, so my apologies if my question has an obvious answer.

Verizon apparently has the only reliable network for my town (spent 2 years cursing AT&T, and just sent back my T-Mobile phone after 5 days of no coverage). I don't care about texting, email, internet, just camera, music, and most importantly the phone. I have a slew of customized ringtones that I made (in MP3 format) that I wish to be able to use on whichever Verizon phone I wind up buying this week (probably the LG VX 8350).

Having read some prior posts, is it true that I won't be able to use my own MP3s as customized ringtones? I realize that I would have to buy the Music Essentials Kit in order to connect my phone to my laptop. I guess what I want to know is: If I have a Verizon phone, am I able to use my own MP3s for ringtones, and for listening to on the MP3 Player in the phone, or can I ONLY use ringtones and MP3s that I purchase through VCast?

Thank you for your help.
