    One way is to use Ringdroid app. It's a free app that lets you make your own ringtones from songs and stuff. Just select the song from your SD card while on Ringdroid, select tht part of the song (or ringtone) you'd like to use and save. It will give you the option of saving as a ringtone or a notification. After it's saved, it will be on your list of notification/ringtones

    I did this and added several MP3's but none are showing up in notifications or ringtones. So what do you need to do to get the phone to see them.

    PS I have a vibrant.

    Never mind, when I detached the USB cable the system did a media scan and they showed up.
