As dhymes says - yes. But if its just cos you want to change your ringtone, try downloading some software to do it. Otherwise you;ve got ALOT OF HASSLE for something simple, namely:

 - Using IrDA sockets
 - Deciphering phone-specific data values and commands
 - Translating your midi tune to your phone's ringtone format

There are many apps on the net which will do this for you and lots more besides.

What make of phone have you got?

If you're a nokia user, using FBUS or MBUS, check out www.softwarecave.com, they sell and support a number of DLLs which you can use to send and receive ringtones, as well as SMS messaging, and other things.  I used them in the past, and was quite pleased.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
