      featured packages, then at the bottom?

      anyone know if you need to create a plist for the contacts you want to have a video ringer with only the trial version?

      was able to ssh and put multiple vids but if i can only do one vid for all my contacts.... that's pretty weak.

      Yup sorry but only 1 videotone for all your contacts with the free version. If you want the full version you have to pay $20 for it....I think its pretty weak too. I installed it then disabled it and went back to my custom ringtones. I don't think this app is worth $20 but thats just my opinion.

      place your vtone in the private/var/mobile/media/videotone/video folder. After you place your vtones here you should be able to change the vtone through the setting app on your phone.

      So far I'm not to happy with my pruchase of MiVTones

      It works BUT!!!!!!
      1.) It sometimes crashes if I go to add another person under "MiVTones for personalize".
      2.) IF I get it to add the person/number under "personalize" it will not allow me to change the video for that person.
      3.) Their support forum is...............Well I'm not sure... It looks to me like a Chinese advertisement page, and even if it's not, it would be nice to have a forum with a language selection if that is the way a company is going to offer support....

      They seem to have no problem with language when selling their product or taking the cash from people...



      So far I don't think this is worth the 20.00, untill they get their ***** together and am sorry I payed for it..
      But I take it, that there are some people who have had no problems *shrugs*
      As for me, I'll give them some time to respond to my emails, then if nothing.. I'll be contacting PayPal for my $$$ back...


      This is their supposed FORUM:

      yeah for 20$.. def. was not worth it... I can't wait for the new vWallpaper to come out, just due to the fact that it has the functionallity to do video ringtones... Right now as it is... everytime I get a call and MivTones does it deal... my video wallpaper running in the background though winterboard stops... Almost like its not wanting to release the video drive from MiVtones back to winterboard... I can respring and the video wallpaper starts back up... but if someone calls...

      I paid for this app, and it doesn't work. Also, their help forum is now down. I sent an e-mail to the developer, so we'll see if I get a response. But I'm posting here to let everybody know my specific issues.

      Four specific, very frustrating, problems:

      1) After assigning a VideoTone to my specified contact, I try to assign another VideoTone to a different contact, and the app crashes. That means I have to go from the Springboard > Settings > MiVTones > Personlize > Select Contact > Select contact's phone number > set VideoTone > Return to main screen for every single assignment.

      It refuses to save the VideoTone unless the app crashes first. (So basically, I can't bypass the app crashing by hitting the home button). That's a lot of work.

      2) Let's say I have three contact numbers for my husband, all stored under his name. So far, I have only been able to assign two of his numbers to a VideoTone. Selecting the third number does absolutely nothing (then of course, it crashes).

      3) Sometimes, assigning a VideoTone to a specific user causes the Default to be changed into that specific VideoTone. So I'll assign Bob.mp4 to Bob, then 10 minutes later, Jane calls and Bob's VideoTone will show up. I have to go back and re-assign the default to the Default.mp4. Then of course, it crashes.

      If I don't add any more contacts after re-assigning Default.mp4, that's fine, but considering that I've been trying to assign five different ringtones to five different callers for two days now, it's a tedious process.

      4) Some VideoTones for certain users refuse to be added at all. Even after I go through all of Step 1 for Bob and get it successfully working, certain users' VideoTones won't assign at all. I have successfully set up VideoTones for Bob, Joe, and Stephen, but not Christy, Jill, or Tracy.

      So this is extremely tedious and frustrating for an app for which I paid. I'll keep everybody posted if/when I hear a response from the developers.

      My recommendation: Don't pay for this app until the developer releases fixes to cover all the bugs.

      Update:

      The developers were very quick in replying to my e-mail requesting troubleshooting for the problems I listed in my previous post.

      However, after three days of various back-and-forths, and their multiple suggestions, it got to the point where I had to restore my iPhone a total of eight times while trying everything they suggested.

      I gave up and requested a refund from the developers.

      I have to give them 5 stars for working so hard in trying to resolve this issue, but this application blows goats. Don't install it.

      I'm moments from running pwnage on my 2.0.2 (1gen) iphone as MivTones was the last attempted install (Cydia).
      Restarting Springboard (circle loader) was the last visible motion on my phone before I was rebooted to the pwnage icon (pineapple). Haven't been able to get past that since.

      Oddly enough - when I plug my iphone into a mac (battery was low to begin with), iPhoto launches and I can get at my stored photos - the same with iTunes. I can access the iphone. So weird. Screen on iphone is stuck on pwnage logo, but the device seems to be showing up on macs.

      Gonna try calling myselff and see how really accessible it is. After that, borking the damn thing and avoiding trying out new apps.

You people are the greedy ones, wanting everything for free. You have to understand that people's hard work must amount to something...$20 isn't a lot of money, guys. If you think it is, you need a reality check. I spend $20 for dinner every night, big ******* deal. I'd love to see many of you stop complaining and just start thanking people for their work. Have a nice day
      Hey I just bought the full version. I have absolutely no idea how to get the full version. Could you please help me out?

      The email I received from them stated something about adding a website source to the installer. I tried adding it to Cydia sources, but I got an error message. Please help

      Thanks in advance
