iphone general help please?

I have had an iphone for a bit now, but I'm finding a few little quirks that I would like to see if there is a way around.

Please help me if you can, below is a little list:

1) MMS - I use MobileFinder 1.8.0. to view my mms that the latest swirly MMS gets for me. After browsing to the mms folder there is the pictures and a file that is the text subject that people have sent along with it. I cannot open or view this txt, clicking on it does nothing.

Is it the mobile finder app? does another one allow me to do this? if so which one?

2)a) Is there a way to forward MMS that i recieve? MobileFinder has a send option but only alows via email.
b) same goes for normal SMS messages.

3) can mp3 files be used as ringtones? the standard ones are too quiet. if so, what program and how to get them on the phone would really help.

4) Is there an mp3 player application? sorry for being a noob :S

5) Occasionally the iphone will lock up, sounding a loud (ironic that) beeping noise, I have to wait for it to reeboot and then it's ok. this isnt often but often enough to have a gripe with it. any ideas? oh it happend upon recieving an sms once if that helps.

6) lastly is there any news or programs that allow sending or recieving via bluetooth yet>?

Sorry for the noobish questions guys, gals, any help would truely be appreciated, i did look around the iphone threads but there seems too many applications to choose from, so if you have a good experience with any that do what i need, please let me know.

Thanks in advance

I don't know the answer to a few but
3) Yes, itunes can be used to create ringtones from your mp3's but they will charge you for it. There are 3rd party apps that will allow you to do it for free but I'm not sure on specific ones for Windows.
4) Are you kidding? lol The iphone has iPod functions. That's like one of the best mp3 apps ever!

ahh i see, so i cannot use mp3 files directly, they have to be converted to itune format, then the built in player on the phone can play them obviously..

thanks for letting me know, any one know of an app that can do this for free? or just point me in the right direction?

Something like this but this one isn't freeware, I'll see what I can find though.

Open itunes on your comp and add your mp3 song to the library. No conversion required! Plug your iphone in once you have added all your tunes to the library and they wil transfer (sync) to the iphone.

As for mp3 ringtones Last I heard there was a 20 second or something limit to the ringtone length. Might be different now. Just google iphone mp3 ringtone/s. should produce something for you.

My iphone has never locked up. This is not normal! Have you tried restoring it? Is it an unlocked iphone? If so then there is a safe way of restoring using ziphone.

I couldn't find any freeware for windows that allows you to create your own ringtones for the iPhone using your existing mp3's.
