Hack Allows Any File Size And Format For Ringtone And Alert Sounds On WP7

By default, ringtone, alert and alarm sounds on Windows Phone 7 have to be under 40 seconds, smaller than of 1MB and can only be in either MP3 or WMA format – there are lots of limitations. However, forum member arses has found a way to circumvent these limitations. As for file formats, he has successfully tested .aac , .amr , .m4a , .ac3 , .aiff , .flac , .mka , .mp2 and .ogg.

If you think this is useful – as noted by WPCentral, you can’t dismiss alerts while the sound is playing, possibly forcing you to wait over 40 seconds – and have write access to the \Windows folder on your phone (usually achieved through the WP7 root tools), head over to the forum thread for instructions.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
