Nokia Composer Instructions

On this page you will find all the information you need to help you get the tune you want for your mobile phone from. First read the general information below and then choose the specific instructions depending on which Nokia mobile phone you own.

General Information

The keypad of your Nokia phone is used to enter the notes, and change their duration and pitch.

your Nokia phone
1=C 2=D 3=E 4=F 5=G 6=A 7=B
8 shortens the note
9 lengthens the note
* changes the octave (1,2,3)
0 insertes a rest (pause)
# changes the note to a sharp

First of all decide which tune you want to enter onto your phone. Either browse by Artist or by song title. When you have seen the tune you want, select it and it will open in a sepearate, smaller window.

If a particular tune has been covered by another artist, it will normally be found under the original artist's name.

The codes on the site are displayed using the numbers 0 - 9, as well as # (hash) and * (star) - these are found on either side of the 0 (zero) key on your phone. These represent (obviously!) the keys on your phone. Once you are in the Composer function on your phone (see below) all you do is type in the digits as they are displayed on the site. WHAT YOU TYPE IN IS NOT WHAT IS DISPLAYED ON YOUR PHONE! The lines of numbers should correspond with the display on your phone - when you get to the end of a line in the code it will be the end of the line on your phone. Underneath the tune is the Tempo. This is a guide as to what speed to set the tune at, although you can set it to whatever you like!

Some codes feature the phrase P&H followed by a number. This means Press and Hold that particular number until a dot (.) appears between the length and the note.


If the code said

0 P&H3 2

You would:

press 0 (zero) then press and hold down the 3 key, and then press 2

This would be displayed on your phone as

4- 4.e1 4d1

Sometimes, if you are not careful, the phone will enter one of these extended notes if you've held the key down for too long accidentally. Make sure that thes notes only appear where you see P&H.

Once you've keyed the tune in, Save it with whatever name you want. Then go back to the Ringing tones section of your phone and select the tune to ring from the list so that it rings when someone calls you.

Now choose your model number:  1100  2100  3210  3310  3330  3390  3410  5210  7650
