    Does anyone know what file type ringtones are saved in? I have an LG phone from Verizon. Or does it vary from phone to phone?

    It is an EnV Touch. How would I go about finding the file type for a phone though, like if I were to change phones or wanted to give a ringtone to someone else....

    You normally can't send the inbuilt ringtones, with your custom ones there's usually an option in the file browser for Send Via Bluetooth.

    See if you can copy them to your card...you may be able to view the file information then...I dont have a late LG phone have to confirm it though.

    Now if you are wanting to create your own...mp3 is pretty standard and will work with most phones....the main thing is they{mp3} are available by the millions if you want to get them online
    If you have an older LG phone the format for the built in ring tones was midi i believe...you could create simple ring tones with lg software..they wouldnt accept an mp3 ringtone however
