    I have the vibrant and I dont know how to change my message tone to a ringtone.. I have music saved on my media card. Also, does anyone know how to personalize your contact's personal ringtones?

    Mount your phone on the computer, create a folder called "media", within media, create a folder called "audio", within audio, create three folders, one called "ringtones", one called "notifications", and one called "alarms". Put your respective sounds in these folders and everything should work out fine.

    I prefer the above way as it keeps everything neat and tidy. If you want a solution that will let you choose any sound file on your sd card regardless of location, download rings extended from the market.

    To change individual contacts ringtones you should just be able to go into your contacts, select one, press menu and edit, then there should be a ringtone option.

    You can also get Rings Extended to help in setting tones. Free and I highly recommend.

    There are a lot of posts on this. Get ringdroid to cut your music. Get ringo lite to set your tones. Done.

    Sorta off topic but one thing that bugs me is I wish the media player would then ignore these folders, as I'll be playing my music on random and bam I'm hit with one of my ringtones. Kinda makes me crazy
