    I downloaded a soundboard that I would like to use as a ringtone. I already have a clip set as my ringer, but I would like to save one as a notification ringer and one as a text message ringer.
    When I was using the default message service that came with the phone this was no problem. I could go in and see the ringtone and change it within the settings. Now that I use handcent, this isn't an option. I can go in and change it to the default notifications ringer but I don't see any of the ringtones as an option to save as a text message ring tone. If I do try to get around it by saving it as a notification first then going into handcent and using it for the text message, if I try to change the ringer for my notifications, it says that the ringer is set but it doesn't ring.

    Does anyone know a work around? I understand if I just have to suck it up and use a ringtone for my text messages that is preset into the phone. Also I hope I made sense in my post...LOL

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Easy way: Download ringdroid and save it as a notification tone.

    There are multiple ways to do it but this is one of the easier ways.

    Thanks that seemed to work but ringdroid isn't saving my song properly. It's making it sound like a glitchy mess. Also when I go back into ringdroid to try to open the song, it crashes.

    Any ideas? This is frustrating..lol

    No idea, sorry.

    Maybe hook the phone up to the computer and see if you can pull the tone and drop it in the right folder.

    Maybe try the Zedge app or check out Zedge online.

    Thanks, I'll try Zedge.

    The thing that bothers me the most is that I can't change the text message notification. It sounds like the regular notification (like email) and I want them to sound different.

    Thanks, Zedge worked a lot better then trying to make my own ringtones. I'm just going to delete ringdroid.

    For some reason one of the sounds off a soundboard was saved automatically to the list of notification sounds, and I want to delete it. Anybody know how to do this?

    Did you try long tapping it?

    Hook your phone up to the computer and delete it from your SD card.
