    goto "Music", tap and hold at your desired song, a menu will popup, choose "set as phone ringtone", wala...

    No way that you can use mp3 for message tone as there is no option at all for that :(

    Hi everyone, try downloading "Ringdroid" app for free from market. Lets you use any mp3 on your handset as a ringtone/message alert/notification. Plus you can play with your playlists etc..
    Hope this helps! :)

    You can create a folder on the root of your memorycard and name it "Notifications". Copy your songs into this folder and you'll be able to use those songs als message/notification tones.

    hi there, I'm also a newbie in using android..
    I don't use any application
    I just go to "My files" folder and then I copy the mp3 music file that I'd like to use as my message ringtone (you just need to tap and hold the music file then you can choose to copy or move the music file), after that I paste it in folder media/audio/notifications (also in "My files").
    After you paste it then you can go to message/inbox icon located at the bottom of your screen and in the message/inbox setting now you can choose the file that you've copied as your message ringtone..

    Hope this can help..

    yes you would have to create it unless you are using facebook app in which case it would already have been created. so myfiles>media>audio and there create the folder named notifications and copy and paste the ringtone of your choice there.. All the best!

    ok im a complete noob to this android lark so please bear with me if this seems a little simple. Have been trying to set one of my songs as a message tone with no success so far. Tried following the instructions above but i have no media file in my files, have opened hidden files etc and there is nothing. I have also synced the handset to my comp and created a folder like someone else suggested for wallpapers and notifications however this shows up on my comp but when i try to access these files from the handset i cannot do anything with them (pictures are on handset but there is no option to do anything with them such as set as wallpaper etc, they are in usb storage folder on handset if this makes any difference whilst on comp have been saved in folders under external sd card)
    Im getting quite frustrated with this so if anyone can give me some pointers this would be much appreciated :D
    thanks

    Hi, as I previously posted above on April 27th, just download a free app from the market called "Ringdroid". No need to fanny around copy & pasting, or creating new files, it does it all for you!! Simples. Hope this helps. GrahamF. London :cool:
