    With out using an app from Android Market or any kinds of side loaded apps, is there any way to add our own Email and text notification sounds?


    I have already created a "notification" folder on my phone and tried to load my own sounds but the phone would not see my sounds...

    Change your folder name to "notifications"

    Can you offer more explanation??

    So if I make a folder named "notifications" and move music files to that folder, my phone will see these files and allow them to be used as ringtones, etc?

    Does this folder need to be a subfolder?? Because just making the folder and putting music into it, doesn't seem to work.

    Thanks

    If you want to use your music as a ringtone:

    * Connect the phone to your PC
    * pull down your notification bar and mount the SD card
    * the card will show up as a drive in "My Computer" Open it and create a "Music" folder. Drop any music that you want in that folder. unmount the SD card from your PC. Open up the Applications menu and select the music icon. From there you can listen to any music you placed there. If you want any song to become a ringtone, hit the Android menu button while in the music app and it should give you the option to set what ever song you're playing as the ringtone.

    You said you made a "notification" folder it has to be "notifications". Sorry i assumed you put that folder in the correct location. It must be in the media/audio/ directory

    When you are done it should look like this.

    /sdcard/media/audio/notifications

    Is there anyway to also put a different ringer for email, text, and voicemail so they are not all the same??

    yes...just go into the applications settings and choose the ringtone you want. Unless you've added the notification folder and put new sounds in there you will be limited to the stocked android tones.
