    It's the new guy again.
    I down loaded some cool ringtones from (Ringlert) that I want to use on my HTC Inspire 4G for Weather alerts and other notifications. When I go to the alert for the specific function all I get are the standart ringtones that came with the phone. How do I get the new ringtones to load into the specific ares for each notification. "message alert, missed call, todo list, calander, ect. ect.

    If they aren't showing up in the phones system ringtones you can manually move them there. You will need astro file manager to do it. So download that.
    Then open astro go in to the sdcard file an look for the file created by the ringtone app (usually the name of the app) open it and when you see the list of tones tap menu edit move to then I think you tap the back button till you get back to the sdcard file list find media folder open it and audio then ringtones or notifications then tap menu edit and paste to that folder.

    This is what worked for me

    Create a folder on you SD card called "Notifications" and move your custom sounds to it. You may need to reboot your phone before it recognizes the change.
