    If you go to the gmail settings and tap select ringtone it should come up asking if you want to use android sounds or music. Choose music and you should see every mp3 you have on the D2. Choose the one you want.

    no, go to media folder--->audio----> and that opens up to your choice of Alarms, music, notifications, or ringtones. Place mp3 in appropriate folder

    You can not change your Notification Ringtone without Rooting your phone and having a Custom ROM.
