    Do you mean assign mp3 as ringtones?

    If so, you need to go to the Android Market and download Tone Picker :)

    you dont need to do that at all.

    you can go into your music files via mediascape, find the song you want and then press the menu button (bottom left button on the phone) then you'll see the option of set as ringtone.

    If you want to set a ringtone or music as a text messaging you need to open the text messaging then click the left button on the bottom of the phone, this will pop up the menu options, select setting and there it is, just scroll down and you will see the option to select anything you want to it.

    Yeah download Tone Picker which will allow you to do that. Some have said they can select it using the left button, but I couldn't.

    Or you can just connect your phone to your PC so you can access the memory card.

    * Create a folder called audio (if it's not already there).
    * Under that, create 3 folders called 'alarms', 'notifications' and 'ringtones' (don't put the single quotes!).
    * Put any MP3 files you want to use in the respective folders (for incoming text messages put them in the notifications folder).
    * Then under the system settings, when you chose your tone, the ones you've included in these folders should also appear in the list.
