    I want to add some of my own sounds to use as notification sounds but cant figure out how.
    I added some but none of them showed up in the notifications sound menu. Which folder do i need to put them in?

    Put a notifications folder on your sd card. Add sounds to folder and voila they should now show up. The only thing you won't be able to use them for is the mounting/unmounting notification of the sd card when you power up or down as the sd card isn't available then

    Ok I am still new at this coming from the BB world. How do you add a folder to your SD card?

    Hook the phone to your PC with the USB cable. Then go into "My computer" and open the drive letter that is the SD card of the phone, then right-click on a blank area and choose "new folder" from the menu that comes up. Name it "Notifications" and then drag and drop your sounds into it.

    That is just one way, there are a few others too. You can actually create a folder right on your phone with a file management app, like "Astro".
