    Is there a way to ADD a new ringtone for texts on a Samsung transform ultra? I can do a phone ringtone, but can't figure out adding a new text ringtone.

    If you're using the stock messaging app open it, then hit the menu button, settings, ringtone.

    Text ringtones are actually set as notification alerts, if you are adding a new one make sure you save it as a notification. I add my ringtones & notifications with ringdroid, available on the market place.

    If you are wanting different text ringtones for different contacts it can't be done with the stock sms. Stupid I know, but you'll have to go grab an app to manage your texts to do that.

    create a folder on your sd card called "notifications" and put whatever sound files you want in that folder. When you go to the sound settings under notifications you should be able to see the files from the notification folder

    Edit: ^^ You beat me to it

    If you don't want to use an additional app to change the notification sound what I did was on my SDcard I made the folder: /media/audio/notifications and add whatever mp3's I want to use for texts, email, calendar etc in there. Then each app like messaging, gmail, email, calendar, google talk, etc you can go to that apps settings and choose those notifications.

    Also, If you want to make a phone ringtone the folder on the sdcard would be: /media/audio/ringtones

    And for the alarms: /media/audio/alarms

    Technically you could just make a folder called notifications, or ringtones, but I like to keep things neat.

    Does this cover different notification tones for different contacts?
