Well on December 22 I went on my home comp to this web site to download ring tones to my comp, well they asked for my phone number and as soon as I typed in it, a 4 digit password popped up on the screen and I pushed ok. See I have a prepaid phone and when I open my phone up I noticed they took off 19.99 off my acct, and still couldn't download ring tones and this site is supposedly be free yeah right, then I called the 1 800 number and the phone rings once and hang up at first i thought I called the wrong number, then I tried e mailing them and they never responded, I learned my lesson never order nothing online.

    Try using the website on your cell phone browser - that's what its meant for, and there's absolutely no charge incurred.

    I registered for 3gforfree.com and every time I log in it says incorrect log in . When I try to re- register it says email already on file. I request to have my password and log in sent to me and its says sent to e-mail address and it is never arrives? I give up!

    In order to benefit for 3gforfree you have to use it on your phone because there's no charge when you use your phone but when you try to use your computer it really doesn't work.

    Well see like the problem with 3 gforfree is the fact that it takes like freaking forever to get the new songs on it... I just logged in and link omg there was some new ones but i mean shouldn't all 50 be new? I mean this is driving me crazy.. I hate trying to record my songs that i like cause like if you heard em it would sound like bull CRAP!! But man can someone just fix the sight for new songs to come in cause i mean this right here is not working... The latest songs are ne yo, llyod, Ciara, beyonce and sakira, ii mean come on now some NEW SONGS WOULD BE NICE .

    Thank you very much!!

    I dunno why you guys are ### at this. I tried it and it worked perfect. I never had to enter my cell phone number either. Nothing charged out of my account or nothing. Just straight up downloading to my phone.

Because people said I should be able to access that site from my phone since its samsung... but no luck yet... does anyone know whats the problem? I just tried to go on right now and this thing popped up and said Attention, The request timed out. And at other times it says error 502 and some long thing.

    LOOK I DON'T SEE WHY Y'ALL ARE HAVING THE PROBLEMS Y'ALL ARE HAVING BECAUSE ITS REALLY SIMPLE AND THE ONLY CHARGE YOU GET IS WHEN YOU SUBSCRIBE TO BE ABLE TO CREATE YOUR OWN RING TONES ($7) BUT THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS FOR SOME REASON TODAY AND YESTERDAY I CAN'T EVEN ACCESS 3GFORFREE AND ITS REALLY MAKING ME IRRITATED!

    This website is actually awesome. Although I'm computer saavy, when it comes to cell phones and downloading ringers and stuff... I must admit I suck BIG TIME! Not only is this webiste THE GREATEST... it also lets you upload and then download your own wallpaper. You can upload songs and then download them to your phone... like i said the site is awesome! About the only suckey thing about them for the past few days is the fact their site is down... now that part SUCKS!! They are actually a free site however for seven buck a year you can access soo many other features... including the items I noted above. OK... that's it.

    Umm well i singed up and everything but, when ever i go to it on my phone is says visit www.3gforfree.com on your phone, login and receive directions on how to upgrade your account. And it doesn't tell me anything. Then when i go to ringtones on my phone, it doesn't work either. I have tons of friends that have this and it works for them but i dunno how to. Any suggestions?

    If you cannot stop them from taking your money, contact your states attorney general's office. I know that my state's AG he doses not like the people our this great state being taken advantage of. That's what I did.

    Simple solution, go to Tucows.com. Search and download an MP3 cutter, you can get freeware and it won't cost a thing to download. After that you will be able to make ringtones from your own music. Kinda fun and you get the exact part of the songs that you want. Your phone must be able to sync with your computer though. Good luck!

    3gforfree.com must change there name. there site used to be free and now you have to pay for the ringtones and walpaper. i think tht this is so inconsiderate for people who dint read the find print because they use this site all the time.
