How do you transfer ringtones from internal memory to micro SD?
I have a BB Pearl 8130 and downloaded some ringtones from here. I did not have a micro SD card at that time, but I just bought one this week. I want to transfer the ringtones from the phone's internal memory to the micro SD card now, but I can't figure out how. It allows me to transfer pictures though, just not an option for transferring ringtones.

I'm actually new at CB but I always would call BB suppport for things lol!! Well i ask about this and they told me I couldn't do that. So hopefully you get a correct answer and we can see. But I was told my Telus BB support I couldn't do it.♥ Wife to Sarfraz, Mom to Aisha & Zahid ♥Sarah

You can only transfer Ringtones that you downloaded, preloaded ringtones cannot be moved. Just highlight the one you want then hit Menu> Move and follow the prompts.
Also, you can transfer them via Desktop Manager through Media Manager.

sarfrazfamily got incorrect advice. You can put ringtones on the Media Card. When you format it in the BlackBerry, it creates a ringtones folder. In the future, download ringtones to your desktop and use Mass Storage Mode to move them to the Media Card. That's the easy way, but it won't work for ringtones in the device memory. To move those, you'll have to use Media Manager, either the Desktop Manager version, or the version that's on your BlackBerry. If you just have a few, the BlackBerry method is probably quicker, since you don't have to connect to your computer.
From the Home Screen, run Media. Press Menu and select Explore. You will see Media Card and Device Memory. Select Device Memory / Ringtones. Select your ringtone, press Menu, and select Move. Keep selecting Up until you reach the top of the folder tree, then select Media Card /BlackBerry / Ringtones / Menu / Move Here.
Repeat for each ringtone.

Just to be sure I/you didn't miss a step,
From the Home Screen,
Media / Menu / Explore /
You should see a choice of Media Card and Device Memory. Select device Memory. You should see folders for music, pictures, ringtones, videos. Select Ringtones, select your tone, press Menu. You should see a list of entries that includes "Move."
Does that help?

Anyway, I guess I'll just have to keep all the device memory ringtones where they are for now. Next, I have to remove the T-Mobile carrier theme from my Pearl. Tried using Crackmem and can't seem to get it removed. I PM'd Pete (the person who wrote the app) last night and is currently helping me with that.
I appreciate your help!
