Easily Get Back The Old Ringtones Missing in BlackBerry OS 6.0

krusty-clown-carEarlier this year we pointed out a fix for getting all of your old OS 5.0 and older ringtones on your brand new BlackBerry OS 6.0 device. For some reason RIM decided in their infinite wisdom to not include the same ringtones in OS 6.0 as they did in previous BlackBerry 5.0 devices. We had not idea why they did this back then and it is still a head scratcher. It screwed up practically all of my profiles which I am still fixing.

Until now the fix was a bit annoying and required a computer. Nah let us know that he spotted an alternative solution by Jeffreii @CBForums that gets you the ringtones directly from RIM! It is just one install file included on RIM’s severs are you should be up and running with all of your older ringtones!

Just head directly to this link from your BlackBerry to install the older ringtones. These ringtones do not survive a OS upgrade or reset so you would need to install them again if you do reset or upgrade.

Let us know how it works for you!

  1. I prefer to copy the OS5 MP3 files onto my SDCard… Save memory on the device itself and survives an OS upgrade too :)

  2. Brilliant!

  3. Didn’t RIM do this to us before, like from 4.2 to 4.5?

  4. Thank you so much!! I love new technology and new phone but I am old and conservative and cannot bear these awful new tones. Thank you for making me sane again.
