    I bought my droid on opening day :cool: and have not rooted (possibly in the future) however I want to know if i can change my notification sound for my text messages (incoming) without haveing to root my phone. I use Ringdroid (app) to make all my ringtones and that is easy for making ringtones for calls, however i cannot find a way to add new sounds to my notification sound list. Can i somehow access the droids actual internal memory to add notification sounds (not sd card) without rooting?

    Get Handcent. You can do it through that. Just make sure you turn off the stock notification or you will get a double notification.
     
  3. You can save as 'notifications' in ringdroid. Same process as ringtones, just choose notification instead of ringtone when you save it. I have made a few 3 second clips for notifications and it works well, they will show up in your notification list (and are saved to the sd card).

    Zedge and Mabilo are good options but I'm pretty sure they save ringtones to SD. But the amount of space used for a ringtone/notification is extremely minimal so why even worry about it?

    Wow guys... overcomplicate much?

    Make a new folder on your SD card. Title it "Media".

    Inside the media folder, make another folder called "Audio".

    Inside that folder, make another folder called "Notifications".

    Place any mp3s you want to use for your notifications inside that folder. Viola, you are done. No downloading of apps, no special tricks or tactics. Its that simple.


    Incidentally, if you want to change your ringtones or alarms, just make folders inside the "Audio" folder and title them "Ringtones" and "Alarms", respectively.


    (Just like square said. :) )

    "SMS popup" is always another program option you could use.
