Dude. Google is your friend.

Just do a search for "mp3 ringtone" and add whatever language you want...

You can even have those mp3 ringtones on your phone for free if your phone comes with some software which can edit the length of mp3 songs.

Just rip whatever music you like from your cds into mp3 files, then edit the length of the mp3 files to about 20-30 seconds and transfer it over to your phone. :) Voila! You can have which ever language songs you want on your phone. :)

Do I detect just the slightest hint of sarcasm? ;)


Well, seriously, if he'd fired up google, he'd have his ringtones and MP3 editing software in less time than it took to post here and wait for a reply.

No sarcasm Bremen - it was intended as a compliment.

1. Learn to spell. "Bollywood", not "Bolywood".

2. Google is your friend. Try these steps:
a) browse to www.google.com
b) Type in "indian bollywood mp3"
c) Click on "Google search"

3. Look through the search results.

Or:

1. Go to Little India and buy a bollywood MP3 CD.
