PHONEBOOK



Download iden Phone Book Manager (free) from
http://idenphones.motorola.com/iden/support/software/organizer_upd.jsp



You will need to download (free) the USB driver from



http://idenphones.motorola.com/iden/support/software/usbistallation.jsp



Finally you will also need either the USB data cable ($24.99) or Serial data
cable ($29.99), available at most Nextel retailers

Uploading custom ringtones and wallpaper



There are two programs that can be used for uploading ringtones and
wallpaper One is called MyJal and the other is WebJal. It's use is a little
tricky. You will need the data cable mentioned above to upload ringtones
and wallpaper.



MyJal



There are three places to download this software



1) http://members.cox.net/myteam/myjal.html



Although it promises you a free trial period, you won't get that. You will
have to pay a $5 fee to get a key to unlock the software. Paypal only is
accepted method of payment. I don't recommend using this site, the support
team are really a bunch of immature jerks.



2) http://www.idencustom.com



Go to the buy software page. This will cost you a consumer license of $30.
There is a good discussion forum associated with this site, lots of
technical assistance.



3) Yes, I do have the files and all in working order.



Download myJAL from #1 mentioned above. Install it on your PC. When you
launch the program it will tell you the trial version is over. Then you
will have to ask me nicely and promise me something for the THANK GOD PATCH.
I busted my ass to get this software and information, no one just handed it
to me...so be nice and be generous. When you receive this patch drag and
drop into the folder c:\Program Files\myTEAM Software\myJAL



If after doing this you get a message that says "The application failed to
find required application data in the system registry." Then you need to
download patcher.exe from



www.idencustom.com/Patcher.exe







WebJal



Perform a google search to find the zipped program WebJal_R010103.zip (2.9
MB) and download and install. You may also need a program called Webjal
Patcher. These are all free downloads.

In order to use the program as Motorola designed it you need to
validate your info that is the whole reason as to login & password. If your
not authorized your not supposed to be able to use it but we have been
getting around that for some time. You can either do 1 of 2 things. First if
your using a computer that has 100% internet you can just use
WebJalPatcher.exe

If you are running on a laptop www.vinnycuz.com is where you want to
go sign up for gold membership and vinny will help you out and get it up and
running 100%

Custom Ringtones for the i730 must be in .wav format or .midi Read below
for further details.





WAV files



..Wav ringtones for the Nextel i730 must be in format of 8KHZ, 8 bit, mono,
max 30 seconds



You can use Windows XP sound recorder to record sound clips from an audio cd
and save in format .wav



Use a program such as Flexi Music Wave Setup to format the wav clip to
proper format of less than 30 seconds.





MIDI tones



Must be 30 sec in length, and type 0



Use this converter GNMIDFMT



http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/programs/GNMIDFMT/download/win95/rd.shtml?http://www.gnmidi.com/gnmidfmt.zip



Record music in MIDI format http://www.anvilstudio.com/index3.htm



Delete installed ringtones from the phone's menu.



WALLPAPER



Wall paper files should be 128 x 128 pixel size in .gif format only. NOT
..GIF there is a difference.



I used Wallpaper Manager that came with Verizon's Sharp Z800 digital phones
to resize a .jpg into a 128 x 128 .png. Then use Windows Paint to convert
to .png to .gif Works flawlessly!!



If you have Microsoft Office you can also use Microsoft Photo Editor
included in the Microsoft Office Tools Folder. Reduce the picture by using
IMAGE, RESIZE. Using this will allow you to directly resize and save a .jpg
file. Use the PAINT program in your accessories folder to convert the image
to .gif format. (NOT .GIF or you will have failures)



Delete installed wallpapers from the phone's menu.
