    You can set your text tone as normal (menu > settings > notification sound)

    Then when you open googlemail hit menu> settings> select ringtone> to change the gmail notification sound.

    Are you trying to use a different sound other than the default T-Mobile Sound? I had some problems finding this one too. Tap on the messages widget on the home screen. Make sure you're on the "all messages" screen. Go to Menu--Settings, scroll down to "Select sound". Done!

    I was trying to find this out too, and did a search on google...

    the answer was quite straight forward...


    • connect your phone to your PC with USB.
    • Mount the SD card on the PC.
    • In the root of the SD card, create a folder called 'notifications'
    • in there put any custom notification sounds you want.
    • Unmount the SD card.
    • Now when you look at the notifications in settings, your audio file should be visible to select :D

    You can also do the same with folders called 'ringtones'
