Default Re: how to change the sms's sound to my own?

In Settings> Sound you will find a default ringtone and default notification tone. From there you can change either. Also many apps allow you to change the notification tone for that particular app.

For the ringtone, I found you need to copy or move the soundfile you want to use to the Ringtones folder - I suspect you will also need to put the SMS notification file in Notifications.

You can do this while connected to a PC or install something like File Manager (free on Play)
