Converting your favorite MP3 song to Cisco IP phone ringtone

You can do it, for free on your Linux box with lame and sox. Here ya go:

1. lame --decode she_bangs.mp3 she_bangs.wav
2. sox -t wav she_bangs.wav -t raw -r 8000 -U -b -c 1 she_bangs.raw resample -ql

Then you can use the raw file for your Cisco IP phone!

The correct command should be
sox -t wav she_bangs.wav -t raw -r 8000 -U -b 8 -c 1 she_bangs.raw resample -ql

i.e. "-b" should be "-b 8"
