Where's the dialtone
heh.. answered my own questions

I downloaded "GNMIDFMT." turns out the file wasn't type 0, it was type 1
can't believe I didn't think of checking that first lol

ah well, for those of you who have midi's and don't know if they are 
type 0, i'd suggest getting GNMIDFMT

Subject: TIP: Making Ringtones work on a Smartphone
Newsgroups: microsoft.public.smartphone
I noticed some of you were having trouble making ring tones work. Thanks to
a post by Neil Enns, he mentioned that only Type 0, non-polymorphic, files
work on the Smartphone.

I found a program called GNMIDFMT which can convert Midi files
between Type 0, 1, and 2. Works great in making Midi files play properly on
the Smartphone. So far, I *believe* polymorphic files have been playing
back properly too (not sure if there are actually multiple instruments
tho...)

You can download GNMIDFMT demo at http://www.gnmidi.com

Good program. You can get any ringtone and convert it to work with
Nextel.

9. Importing Midifiles into the Pattern Editor. The Pattern Editor imports 
single-track (Type 0) midifiles. If the midifile has more than one 
track, then you will need to convert it to single-track with the 
appropriate software. A good midi-converter is GNMIDFMT which 
interconverts files of midi formats 0,1 and 2 (available from http://www.gnmidi.com)
