    Hey all,

    I am having some trouble using my custom mp3 ringtones for txt messages. I would like to use a custom tone for txt messages, but not for the other notifications. Is there a way to selectively set the tone like that?

    Thanks!

    Right, but doesn't this set the ringtone for every notification (twitter, email, texting, etc.)? I only want the ringtone to apply for texts.

    Also, my apologies to the mods for putting this in the wrong forum.

    For text messages: open messaging>menu>settings>select ringtone.

    For email: open up the stock email client, select the account (if more than one) and then hit menu>account settings>select ringtone

    The gmail program also allows a custom ringtone.

    ^^^that allows for a choice among stock ringtones on the device..I think the OP wants to know how to use custom mp3 ringtones as notifications

    No, that's the ringtone setting for just txts (hence why you open messaging to set it).

    This is what I found about text message custom ringtones; I have not tried it so can't say if it works or not:

    True enough, I didn't read well enough. You can also DL the Zedge app from the marketplace and get tones and wallpapers. When you select a custom ringtone it automatically offers the ability to use any Zedge sounds you've Dld.
