    I'm new to the forum and also a new android user ( just got the phone this afternoon).
    After played with it for a couple hours, I still can't figure out how to set customized ringtones. All I see in settings is the preloaded ringtones.
    My question is : How do I load my own ringtones and use them? Do i just create a ringtone folder and what should i do from there? Or there are other ways?
    Thank you a bunch~!

    Yes, you have to create a folder named "ringtones" under the media/audio folder, and put the file you want in there. Same if you want a custom notification sound, you make a folder "notifications" in the same spot and drop the sound you want in there.

    Not sure why but when I did my notification sound, and then later my ringtone sound, neither one showed up in the list of tones in the settings menu right away, they both showed up a little while later.
