    Anyone know of a good place/website where you can download notification sounds, I get alot of texts and moonbeam gets real annoying after awhile and I really hate all the notification sounds.

    Phonezoo.Com is not bad, and it's free. I have the Star Trek intercom sound for texts and because of its high pitch, you can hear it a mile away.

    I go to zedge.net where you can get ringtones and notifications ...

    also you can try ringdroid as an app and create your own stuff from your music folder

    Make your own!

    I look for sounds, quotes, musical riffs, etc on the web and save them as a MP3 file.
    Then put the file on the SD card in the /media/notification folder.

    Right now, my default notification is a Mario coin sound

    I use Cool Edit Pro for my editing also.
    But there are lots of free sound editing tools out there.
    Or use Ringdroid and edit right on your phone.

    Just create a "notification" folder on your sdcard and the phone will find them.
    Since my phone is rooted I change my custom tones to an .ogg file and move them into the system/media/audio/notifications folder and save them as system sounds.
