    Has anyone found a good ringtone for text messages? It seems like the ringtone and text tones have to be the same volume, and unless I want to crank up the volume on my phone (which makes the ringtone way too loud) I can't hear when I get a text message. I've tried a number of different tones (default phone options and some I've found on Zedge) but none really work for me. I love the one I had on my old LG phone, but can't find anything like it.

    Help?

    If you look under Settings and Sound, you can select your ring volume, and there is a checkbox you can uncheck to have different volumes for your ringtone and text notification.

    i downloaded a Blackberry ringtone package and transferred it onto my sdcard. Since i'm coming from a BB, it helps me distinguish between my email and texts

    i make my own. If you are a fan of any good guitar players you can normally find one or two notes out of a solo and that is what i use. Most recently made one from John Mayer's Crossroads, and before that had one from vultures. Definitly look into him or hendrix or Red hot Chili Peppers, and just take it into audacity and fine 2-3 notes. I hate setting a long tone for texts, i want it to be like 2 seconds. Also chewbaca is always a good one.

    Love this one - http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/download/CR-Vesper-TextAlert-mp3.mp3.zip

    The Sony Ericsson M600i (in chrystal white color) is the mobile phone used by Vesper (Eva Green) in the James Bond film Casino Royale.



    In one of the last scenes the SMS sound can be heard and Bond picks up the phone and reads a message that suddenly makes him understand the real intentions of his Bond-girl.

    I was using a regular doorbell on my versa. I found the Jetson's doorbell and thought that'd be a good "modern" one for my Inc. Now, I just have to figure out how to get it there (I think it's in my itunes) on my MacBook.

    The Jetsons doorbell is available on Zedge.

    I've got it for my e-mails. I've got Morse Code for S-M-S for texts. And an air raid siren for severe weather alerts.

    I use the Extra Life sound from the Mario Bros. Soundboard. It works perfect and is the perfect length. Everyone at work commented on it when it went off. They love it.

    I have the "Mail Mutha****a" from Eurotrip. You get some strange looks from people sometimes, though my phone is usually on vibrate.
