    The 8700 only supports mp3 as ringtones.
    You will need to download the files from a website as you cannot synch them.

    The 8700 supports the following formats. You need to "view" them from your Blackberry browser, and then save them to the device if yiou them want to play them 'off line' or use them as a ring or event sound.

    AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate): The supported AMR-NB rates are 4.75 KBps, 5.15 KBps, 5.9 KBps, 6.7 KBps, 7.4 KBps, 7.95 KBps, 10.2 KBps, and 12.2 KBps; and the input must conform to RFC3267 Section 5 on the Internet FAQ Archive web site.

    MIDI: Partial support of MIDI on older devices refers to a buzzer capable of buzzing at various frequencies and volumes. All other devices support polyphonic MIDI.

    MP3: Currently, the supported format is MPEG-1 Layer 3; the supported sample rates are 32KHz, 44.1KHz, and 48KHz; and the supported channels are 1 (mono) and 2 (stereo).

    WAV: The supported encodings include PCM, uLaw, and aLaw. The supported sampling rates are 8 kHz, 16 kHz, 22.05 kHz, 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz with 8-bit and 16-bit depths in mono or stereo.
