    Big chance your 6620 will not play MP3 as ringtones. You can browse them
    when you customize your profile, listen to them while you do so, but as soon
    as you select it, you get 'Invalid Format' error, or something like it.

    Earlier firmware-versions allow MP3s to be played as ringtones. Newer
    firmwares (i have 4.22) don't... :=( (DRM issues, or something?)

    But if your's does: Copy the MP3 ringtone into the C:\Nokia\Sounds\Digital
    or E:\Nokia\Sounds\Digital folder of your phone. Then use your 'Profiles'
    application to select the ringtone you want.

    How do you check your firmware? As mentioned above, I can copy an MP3
    into my Digital folder, and it'll play when previewing which ringtone
    to select, but when I actually try to set it I get a "file format not
    supported" error. This is absolutely unacceptable, since MP3 ringtones
    were the primary feature I wanted when choosing a phone and everything
    about the 6620 states that this can be done.

    Is there any way to somehow flash to an older firmware version?

    As far as i can see, it does not state that you can use MP3s as ringtones
    (at least i have not found any document that says so). It *does* state that
    MP3 files can be played on the phone..... semantics, i know, but the
    statements are a little different from each other.

    Then again; if MP3s can be played on the phone, why not as ringtones?
    I can see (one of) two reasons:
    1. Playing those MP3s as ringtones was too buggy..... they just disabled
    that feature (it seems that older 6620 *can* play MP3s as ringtones).
    2. Something to do with DRM (digital rights management). I wonder what would
    happen if you officially bought a MP3 ringtone.. .maybe it is possible to
    set these as a ringtone. But then again; i can assign any MIDI file as a
    ringtone, whether i bought it or not.

    Checking your firmware: type

    *#0000#

    And you firmware will appear.
