    this shouldnt be in the root forum, but the process is still pretty simple

    if you txt yourself the ringtone you want simply select save attachment

    now open the my files app (under applications)

    and browse to the downloads folder

    play the ringtone file you just saved
    now hit the menu button and select set as and pick ringtone or alert


    if i were you i would just put the SD card into a computer and copy the files off it and then back onto the the card after formatting it with the stratosphere.(i also came from a rogue, however my sd card in the strat was bigger so i just copied my files over to that)

    Settings > Sound Settings > Notifications Ringtone is the path you take to set notifications.

    ok then here is the other method, make a folder on the root of the SD card called notifications, put the file in there, it should now show up in the list.
