    Download Ringdroid and you can crop the part of a song you want to be your notification, when you finish cropping, click save and then save as: notification. voila...

    Each app has a setting for the ringtone to use. Open up the messaging account, menu, settings and you should see an option to change the ringtone sound.

    Hope that helps...

    yea you can set a ringtone or notification tone for just about everything on the phone that requires an alert tone. Go into the settings for your case in Messages and select Notification tone. Find the one you want and select it. Thats all you do. I have Ringdroid as well and i like how you can edit a song or sound just the way you want it.

    ok...reason why it wasnt working for me was because I use handcent as my text app. if using handcent you need to change the notification settings there as well... open handcent-menu>settings>notification settings>select new ringtone. annnnnnd it works.

    I do not get the same ringtone choices for text messages as I do for phone settings. Why?
