    Hi,

    I am using Asus Fonepad 7. When I go to setting > sound > Ringtone > I see an option to use custom ringtone but when I go to notification > New text / New mail I dont see any option too use a custom tone.

    Anyone familiar with this device please help me out.

    Generally with Android if you want to change a particular app's notifications you look in that app's settings, not the system settings. So open your SMS/Email/Facebook app and then go to its settings and you should find what you want.

    Just tried that with th sms app. The exact same page is appearing with no option to use user defined tone. Please see attachment.

    That looks like a dialogue for selecting tones to me. So I guess you mean you want to use another tone of your own rather than one of those - I'd thought you meant setting a different notification for SMS than from system notifications, which that dialogue will let you do.

    OK, try moving or copying the file you want to use to /sdcard/Notifications (and you can put your own ringtones in /sdcard/Ringtones). Note that android is case-sensitive, so the capital at the start of those folder names may matter (I'm just looking at where I keep mine).
