What are ringback playlists?
- Ringback playlists contain a selection of tones of a genre or theme which will rotate each time you get a call.
- Ringback playlists cost $3.49 and are valid for one month and will auto-renew. The tones included in the playlists will be updated monthly to ensure they are up to date with the latest hits.
In the ringback tone library, what are the "Evening" and "Day" settings for?
- You may set a ringback tone to play only during "Day" hours or "Evening" hours. A ringback tone set for "Day" hours plays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern Time and a ringback tone set for "Evening" hours plays between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. Eastern Time. If you leave either the "Day" or "Evening" options blank, no tone will play during the selected period.
I tried downloading a full track/album/ringtone, but was interrupted by loss of service. How do I re-download?
- During a loss of service, a download in progress will be stored as "pending download." You can restart the download at no additional charge. As a reminder, ringback tones are not a downloaded service--there is no file downloaded to your phone as it is a network-based service only.
What are ringtones?
- Ringtones are downloaded to your phone. With ringtones, you can "set" a tone (song, sound effect, etc.) that you will hear when someone calls you instead of the default ringer on your phone. Ringtones never expire on the device which they are purchased. Ringtones are not transferrable to a new phone.
How do I set my ringtones?
- From the main menu, select "Ringtones" under "Library." From the "Overview" page, you can set your default tone and tones for specific callers.
What is DRM-free music?
- Digital rights management (DRM) is a technology that restricts the ability to move or copy content from one device or format to another. DRM-free content doesn't have these restrictions, allowing greater flexibility--including the ability to play songs purchased from your mobile phone on any player.
I already have music downloaded (or side-loaded) on my phone, can I listen to it with the Sprint Music Plus app?
- Yes, media files can be imported from the device into the player. From the "Settings" menu, select "Synchronize your music library."
If I uninstall the Sprint Music Plus app, can I still use my content?
- Yes, DRM-free content should allow playback on the native device player.
Do I need a microSD card inserted in my phone to download Music?
- Yes, the client will look for an external SD card for track and album downloads.
How do I create and manage playlists?
- From the player, select the menu icon and then select "Add to Playlist." Select "Add to new playlist…" and give the playlist a name. Click the (+) icon to add the playlist to your library. To add more songs to your playlist, view them in the player and select "Add to Playlist" again from the menu icon and select the playlist that you've created.
- To edit your playlist, from the main menu, select "Music" under "Library" and swipe to the right to the "Playlists" tab. Here you can select any playlist you've created and remove songs, shuffle or play all.
If I lose or break my phone, can my content be restored?
- Currently there is no way to restore music or ringtone content once the phone is lost or broken. However, you can archive your music on your computer since the files are DRM-free.
- Your ringback content can be restored if you switch devices by selecting "Synchronize your music library" from the "Settings" menu or if you have downloaded your music tracks to the SD card on the device. If the phone and/or SD card are lost, you cannot recover the tracks.
How do I transfer media files to and from my phone via USB?
- You will need a USB data cable. Plug the micro USB end of the cable to the phone and the other end to your computer. If prompted, allow your computer to automatically install device drivers. You will now see the storage content folders of your device.
