I use Goldwave v5.06 to edit and convert mp3 to wav, then use PC suite to transfer it to my 6600 with conversion turn on to make the wav file more compatible to my 6600.

A wave file has a bit rate of 1411kbps [kilobits per second] which means one second of a song will take around 172kB (kilobyte). An average mp3 file has a bit rate of 128kbps (15.6kB for one second). So yeah, a wav file will take 10 or 11 times the size of an mp3.

If you are on windoze, you can first convert the mp3 to wav, and use windoze's Sound Recorder to edit the wav file. Then, transfer it onto the phone. Also, you have the option to choose a more professional mp3/wav editor if you like. It may not be free though. Programs like CoolEdit or SoundForge cost an arm and a leg for normal consumers like us.
