Sony 580i phone-yes, you can make ringtones

Public service announcement to all Sony 580i owners:

I searched high and low and could not find this information, so I feel I must share it somehow, in hopes others will find it.

You CAN make your own ringtones. The secret is to first make a file less than 100K. (usually about 20 seconds) Save it on your computer. Open Sony PC Suite, connect in phone mode, then drag it into the ringtones file and the phone recognizes it as a ringtone. (which it won’t do if you just put a song in there)

I personally use Motorola Phone Tools to make my ringtones anyway-it lets you pick which portion of the song you want. I don’t like being stuck with having my ringtones be the first 20 seconds of the song.
