Home screen and voice recorder

I have used this phone for about a week is all, but so far I am happy with it. I have just two questions...

(#1) Is there any way to change the screen title? The word "HOME" to something else to distinguish it from my girlfriends. Every time I change the wallpaper on mine she changes hers, each time I change the ringer (yes you guessed it) she changes hers. This is why I am asking if there is some way to change the greeting or screen title or whatever it is called.

(#2) I tried to make a voice recording into a ringer but it tells me "unsupported file type". Any ideas why? and if so is there any way to make a voice recording into a ringer?

Hi Dennis,

In regards to #1, I don't think you can change the display of Home on your screen. My 430g actually doesn't display home, but that's probably because my airtime on it has expired, and SIM has been unregistered. If you want to identify it as your phone, you should take a wallpaper size image, edit it to put write your name on the image and then upload it to your phone via Bluetooth or picture message and then set it as your wallpaper.

Another way to distinguish your home screen is to change the items displayed. Go to:

Menu > Settings > Display > Homescreen > Display Items and select.

As for #2, I think you're right about the voice recordings. It looks like this phone only supports mp3 ringtones. The voice recorder creates files in the old .amr format. I'm a little shocked by your discovery because the .amr format was actually used for ringtones before mp3 files were supported.

Sorry I can't be of more help. Thanks for your questions. Anyway, it sounds like you have a cool girlfriend so congratulations on that!
