Default How do I install or use other ring tones notifications

Okay, A little embarrassed here. I have a problem with the notifications ring tones that are preset from the factory. I cant here them. I suffer from tinnitus. (ringing in the ear) I need to install something I can hear. I can change the ring tone to my liking but for the life of me I cant change the notifications tone. Can someone please tell me how to do this.

Try the app called "Ringdroid" in the marketplace. It allows you to edit audio files and set them as ringtones or notification sounds.

Also, the app Zedge Ringtones and Wallpapers has a good selection. They are free to download and you can set them for certain contacts right inside the app.

Tonepicker it's a app

it may allow you to raise up to the same level as the ringtone.


Did a great job on the Sam Moment.

I second Mabilo but I've had to use it in connection with Ringdroid for it to set correctly.

I use Ringdroid but I cannot change my notification ringer at all...no matter what I use. It is stuck on "Captains Log" and even if I use the other presets it won't change. Do you have any suggestions for that?

Have you tried Kzurb Sonar? It seems to be louder than CL. Also, if you didn't know, the ringer volume is adjustable by the volume "pads" on the side. I also have tinnitus and had ear surgery 11/12(I have a cotton ball stuffed in my left ear for a couple more weeks ), and I have no problem hearing the KS ringtone.
I hope this helps...

OK I stated in a different. Thread ...create a folder on your sd card called Notifications and the android will see it. Create your own tones and put them in that folder. Same goes for Ringtones and Alarms. Just create the folder on sd and they will show in the list.

sonicbluemustang:

I have done as you said and put a "ringtones" folder on my SD card, and it works just fine. If I want to do the same for "alarms" and "notifications" will I have to create folders for them, and then copy over the same files into each folder?
In other words, if I want star wars imperial march for both alarm, notifications, and ringtone, will I to have 3 individual files of the same ringtone in each folder? So if I have a library of 50 files of tones, I will have to triplicate for each folder? If so, that's kind of stupid, as my blackberry, they all access the same folder, so I only have one copy of the file.


Also, how do I set the ringtone to ring differently for a phone call from wife,kids, work, etc ...

Thanks in advance
