Allow Your Samsung Blackjack II Smartphone to Use Ringtones Larger than 300kb

windows-mobile-logo I created some ringtones and synced them to my Samsung Blackjack II Windows Mobile Smartphone.  When I went to Start –> Settings –> Sounds –> Ring Tone, my newly created ringtones weren’t in the list.  It appears there is a setting in the registry that set the size limit at 300kb, making my 330kb mp3s unavailable as ringtones.  Here is a solution to the problem:

  1. You will need to edit the registry of your Blackjack.  Get Mobile Registry Editor here.
  2. Go into HKEY_Current_User –> ControlPanel –> Sounds
  3. In the values window, delete the FileSizeLimit key

*note: You may need to app unlock your phone to ensure that these settings are retained.

Windows Mobile App: Mobile Registry Editor 1.1

Mobile Registry Editor - v.1.11 - 75.66 KB

I just used this utility to edit the registry on my smartphone.  It is a stand-alone executable for Windows, no installation required.  Highly recommended.  Here is a summary of Mobile Registry Editor 1.1:

Mobile Registry Editor is an application that can be used to edit the registry of your Pocket PC or Smartphone (Windows Mobile device).  With it you can remotely edit the registry using your desktop keyboard and mouse as opposed to using your stylus/keypad on your PDA or phone.  It’s built as a Windows application which has been modeled after regedit (with a few extra features such as favorites, value size, column sorting etc.).  It has been tested with Pocket PC and Smartphone on Windows XP/2000 and requires the .NET Framework 1.1 to run.

Features:

  • Create keys/values
  • Delete keys/values
  • Rename value (thanks Pavel)
  • Copy Key Name
  • Restart ActiveSync (Tools -> Restart ActiveSync)
