Default How to set sms tone to user define tone?

Hi,

Just got my galaxy spica yesterday & tried to customize it. How can I set my SMS tone to any mp3 file just like other normal phone? I could only select predefined tone. Also, any idea how to set the sms tone to be periodic?

Thank you

If you use a file browser like ASTRO, which you can find on the marketplace under productivity, go to the media folder, then audio, then notifications. You need to copy the mp3 into that folder. This can also be done by plugging in the USB and opening the storage device under windows. The mp3 should then be available to use when you select your notification tone, Hope this helps

In Astro File Manager the full path is /sdcard/media/audio/notifications

If you mean by periodic, that it keeps repeating until you notice it, then yes there is a solution.

Install Handcent (A much better replacement for SMS than the default Messaging App)

Use this to replace the default SMS Messaging app. Go into old Messaging App and disable notifications. (you don't need both Handcent and Messaging to notify you).

Next start Handcent,
Menu
Settings
Notification Settings
Notification Settings (again)
Scroll down and choose
Enable Reminders [x]
And below this set
No. of reminders to your choice.
And also set
Reminder Interval

I've been playing with ringtones and notifications. And I've found the following 2 things out.

1. The place where ringdroid puts the ringtone is not correct for our phone. Put it in the SD card in a new folder called ringtones and/or notifications. This will require connecting to the computer to move it around once ringdroid creates it.

2. You must disconnect the usb to the computer before you can access the files in ringtones or notifications.

I am now looking to have a different sound for the generic notification and the calendar notification...any one have any ideas?

Note also, if you link to a sound file on your SD card, and then later REMOVE the SD card, your phone won't pick up the sound if you put the SD card back. It will revert to the default.

Make a Notifications folder inside /sdcard instead. Any mp3, ogg or wav files you copy there will show up when you select notification sounds. For ringtones, make a Ringtones folder in /sdcard.

First thing that comes to mind is root your phone, then you should be able to just uninstall the olds sms app as you should have superuser access. You might want to be careful if you take that route though.
