“ M9 is an online destination to share and download FREE content for your mobile phone. Over 3 million wonderful members are sharing the fun and 6 billion free downloads served! „
With everyone owning a mobile phone nowadays, it becoming much more popular to customise them from ringtones, wallpapers, screensavers, and games which you like. Many companies now charge for this privilege, some even charge subscriptions charges and you get sent them every week.
For years I had been looking for a totally free ringtone site and while finding cheaper ones, which charged the cost of a text or the cost to access WAP on your phone, I never found one which was completely free, until I found mobile9.
As long as you can connect your phone to your computer, either via a USB port, Bluetooth or infrared you can get the content you chose to your mobile.
The site is free to sign up to and you can upload your own mobile content as well as download what others have created. You can register your email address which will allow you to download items without waiting, upload your own creations and comment on other user's creations.
However if you do not want to it doesn't block access to the site. On entering the site proceed to Gallery at the top of the page, and enter your phone brand and model number where it will narrow down the results for your phone. You can chose whether you would like to see themes, ringtones, games or wallpapers and screensavers.
Most phone brands are covered from Alcatels, iPhones down to Sony Ericssons.
Once you have found your phone and decided what you would like to see, browse through the pages until you see something you like. Once clicking on the item you like all you have to do is click Download next to preview. If you have registered with the site you will get instant access to the file, if you are a guest you just wait for the countdown to finish before saving to the desired folder in your computer.
Once downloaded, connect your phone via the desired method, whether that be USB, Bluetooth or Infrared and then just copy over to your phone and then use as you like and continue downloading as much as you like. As long as you have the space on your phone.
Without a doubt, with over 600,000 free items to download and being updated constantly it definitely one of the best mobile download sites out there. As long as you have the space on your phone to fit everything you download you can go on for ages if you can be bothered to trawl through hundreds of pages!
This websites allows you the ability to change your ringtone everyday if you want, change the sound you hear when you get a text, change your wallpaper 20 times a day and change your screensaver. Could be addictive once youve started though!
If you wish you can change your phone so much, you turn it into another branded phone, if you have a Sony phone you could add a Nokia ringtone, a nokia theme or even an iPhone theme!
You have no doubt seen those adverts in the magazines and newspapers offering you ringtones, wallpapers and games which can be quite costly. Well why pay! - if you have a computer (which if your reading this you must have) then all you need is either Bluetooth or the USB cable that most phones come with.
I found this site on a search for free ringtones, it's a mobile phone sharing site which allows you to upload as well as download anything from ringtones, sounds, themes, wallpapers, videos, software etc - the latest stats show almost 600,000 free downloads on the site.
You simply select the gallery tab on the home page, enter your phone and then what your after (ringtone, wallpaper etc) then a list loads up - several pages worth. You have the option to then filter to help find what you want, and can even search by typing a keyword in. From 80's TV tunes to modern chart songs and more.
Once you've found what you're looking for you simply click download, and then a new screen loads up allowing you to hear a preview of the download. This is useful as some are better quality than others depending on who's uploaded them. You also get some information on the download such as file type (generally mp3 for ringtones), popularity ratings, and members also write opinions etc. A large download button on the right then takes you to a download screen which has a countdown time typically you have to wait around 10seconds before the file is ready to download. If you register as a member (which is free) you have no waiting time. A pop up download box comes up and then you just select the place you want the file saved. Once saved on your computer you simple send to your phone.
Is it a good site?
The site has been updated recently I guess due to popularity, whilst it's the same process to download items I have noticed that on occasions the download screen doesn't appear, and so you have to hit back on your browser and try again, and sometimes a few times. Not sure the reason for this maybe the website is too busy and can't meet demand; the old site didn't have this glitch which makes me think it's a demand problem on the website server.
It is however FREE after all and so this is just a minor inconvenience and doesn't happen all the time. The downloads work fine and I've had no problems with them.
