    Setting up the ringtone is very easy. You just go into your contacts, tap the person you want to select, click edit… down at the bottom of the screen is a down arrow, click that & scroll down & there is the spot to edit their ringtone.

    Can you use voice record to set a ringtone on the Xenon? Can you make your own ringtones then use them?

    In order to set mp3 as caller id each contact must be seperately saved to phone select a contact push edit scroll down to memory push memory and select phone and it will work after that.

    How do you know if it is less than 300kb and how do you get that?
    I usually buy my ringtones from at& but it says that none of the ones I want are compatible with my phone.. Im not computer savvy so take it easy on me and break it to me gently please. :) Thanks!

    can you set mp3 ringtones for your caller id AND your txt messages

  15. AT&T Cell Phones
    June 12th, 2009 | 1:46 am

    1. From the standby screen, tap the Menu icon>Tap the My Stuff> tabTap Audio>Scroll to and tap the desired ringtone>Tap the Options icon>Tap Use As>Tap Ringtone
    2. Message Tone>Sounds: Shows and plays message tones>select your preferred Ringtone by
    touching the ringtone listed

    It’s simple, maybe you can consider the samsung impression. I have heard it’s better than lg xenon

  20. donika

    yea. but its real expensive. would you prefer the samsung eternity?

    Ummmm, I have a question. I want to get the Xenon but I don’t know if I should change networks. Right now, my network is Sprint. I don’t know if I should change or not. If I don’t change, I get the LG Lotus. But if I do I was wondering to get the Xenon. What should I do.

  24. AT&T Cell Phones
    June 20th, 2009 | 6:34 am

    If you don’t want to change networks, then you have to wait for lg xeon coming to sprint

    why does it have to be less then 300kb???:S that means my ringtone is gunna be like 5 seconds long

  26. Dan
    June 25th, 2009 | 6:42 pm

    You wrote “1. From the standby screen, tap the Menu icon>Tap the My Stuff> tabTap Audio>Scroll to and tap the desired ringtone>Tap the Options icon>Tap Use As>Tap Ringtone”

    First of all, I don’t have a “My Stuff” menu/icon, nor an “Audio” icon. I do have something called “Organizer” under which there is an icon called “Audio and Ring Tones” . It shows the standard ring tones that are in the phone’s internal memory as well as the mp3’s that I have on the SIM card. If I select one of the ring tones that came with the phone, it plays it and if I tap the Options icon I get the Use as> ring tone as you suggest. However if I select one of the mp3’s (290k, 18 sec long) on the SIM card, it plays it, and if I tap the Options icon I DO NOT get the Use as >ring tone option. Instead there are 4 other options, none having anything to do with ring tones.

    What do I need to do to use one of the MP3’s on the SIM card as a ring tone?


  27. AT&T Cell Phones
    June 25th, 2009 | 9:00 pm

    Maybe in order to let you download more musicinto your phone. But less then 300kb doesn’t means your ringtone will be 5 seconds long

    How do you set a personal ringtone ID for text messages? I know how to set a ringtone for all messages, but going to Sound>Message Tone> and then selecting it. I also know how to set a ringtone ID for a specific person, by going to their contact>edit>ringtone. But how do you set one for texts? So when a certain person texts you, it plays.

    How do you set up a group ringtone? This is all that the manual says :(

    “This menu allows you to manage group
    information. By default, there are 4 groups:
    Colleague, Family, Friends and School. Or you
    can put a contact in No Group. You can also
    configure a ring tone for a group so that the
    group ring tone sounds when a call from a
    specific contact address within that group is
    received and there is no ring tone configured
    for the specific contact address.”

    i have recorded files on my xenon but the phone wont let me use them as a ringtone… above you said,
    “From the standby screen, tap the Menu icon>Tap the My Stuff> tabTap Audio>Scroll to and tap the desired ringtone>Tap the Options icon>Tap Use As>Tap Ringtone”
    but that only works if it is an at&t ringtone. i want to use my own audio file that i have recorded and the audio file that i have recieved in a text message that ive saved in the audio folder. is there any way to set those as my ringtone?

    ok so i just bought the lg neon for at&t and i downloaded some ringtones and set them as message tones but they only play for like 2 seconds, but if i go into my stuff and audio folder and listen to them its the whole ringtone so is there a way i can get my message tone to play longer??? its really annoying that i only get like the first two words to the song to play when i get a message!!! please help!!

    I have the same problem as Dan above.
    I have the mp3 less than 300k and it does play in the music player… however it does not allow nor do i see the ADD AS RINGTUNE as an option.

    Is it only possible to set it for certain people or groups and not a general ring for everyone????
    I think this may answer a bunch of questions?

    If im doing something i should.. please let me know!

    even if its an mp3 it still wont work as a ringtone!

  41. Jay
    July 23rd, 2009 | 9:04 am


    What i did was got the to be less than the 300kb. I then sent that song to my wifes phone using bluetooth. (or anyone elses. After i sent it, i deleted the file… and then sent it back to myself via bluetooth. When i get it back it asks if you want it as the ringtune… and viola!!!!

    Yes, finally!!! The only thing is, you cant choose multiple as it. And i dont think you can do the same for text message notifications… ah well… that will do for now!!!

    Well i know how to set the Tones as a text tone, and a caller tone,.
    but is it possible to have diffrent Text tones, for diffrent people?
    because all my contacts are the same song when they text,
    and i find it annoying how i don`t know who is texting me until i read it.
    thanks much.

  44. AT&T Cell Phones
    July 30th, 2009 | 10:49 pm

    You can set different call ringtone for each contract, but there is not possible to set diffrent Text tones, for diffrent people

I have a lg neon and I tried recording a song but I can’t set it as my ringtone. because it’s a amr not mp3 and I was wondering how you change that? because even if I send it to my friend it sent back the same way I sent it to her. and it doesn’t work still… help?!

    Hey um, LG doesnt allow anybody to set ringtones as TEXT tones. Don’t ask me why. But i’ve come to this soultion when I has a LG shine from AT&T. Hope this solves a solution to some peoples questions about “Text alert tones” =)

    August 30th, 2009 | 5:16 pm

    How do you change caller GROUP ringtones? I know how to assign them to new groups but I don’t know how to change them once they have been created. I don’t care about downloading new songs and converting them or anything like that. I’ll use the ringtones that are already on the phone. There was one other person that asked about this but her question was never answered.

    i have the same problem too. but seems like the only way it will be and can be a ringtone is the file is 20 secs/300kb, whether you download it or bluetooth it from someone. well that’s how it worked for me. damn this LG Xenon is so damn annoying. but it’s still good besides that.

    Put it on your memory card if you have one. The file must be in .mp3 format,
