If you have owned a Blackberry before, you know these two flagship features pretty well. It works pretty much the same, only better ’cause you have a full QWERTY keyboard on your Blackberry 8800.
The Blackberry 8800 supports both Polyphonic ringtones and true mp3 ringtones. How to copy your ringtones to the 8800 depends on whether you have a USB data cable or you have access to downloadable ringtones from the WAP or web.
