IME file extension - iMelody ringtone

What is ime file? How to open ime files?

File type specification:

Mobile ringtone file type icon Mobile ringtone file type

The ime file extension is related to iMelody program and used for its default ring tone format.

iMelody was developed by the irDa association (infrared communications) as a standard file format for melodies. It has also been adopted as the ringtone format by the 4 companies developing the Enhanced Message Service (EMS), a smart messaging standard.

iMelody is a feature-rich melody format, featuring volume modifiers which can be used to vary the actual volume throughout a melody, special codes to flash a phone's backlight, LED or make it vibrate and other advanced features.

iMelody was used in some phones by Ericsson, Alcatel, Motorola and Siemens around the year 2001.

This ime file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

Help how to open:

Use iMelody to work with *.ime files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .ime file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
