Download Xillisoft RM Converter. Convert it from MP3 to MP3, and it will set it automaticly to 192kbs. This is the quality and for a phone there is no difference.

if you make an MP3 smaller in size, you do understand you will lose a lot of data encoded in it, and the mp3 itself will sound less clear and crisp. 128kbps is generally not very distinguishable on a phone speaker, but any lower than that, and you'll start to turn the track into a bit of a muddy mess...
