    Try this
    Firstly connect you phone to your pc and set the sd card to mount.
    Go to my computer and locate your sd card.
    If you have already got music on your pc the do the following:-
    go to the folder that contains your song that you want for sms tone
    right click and copy this file
    go to your sd card and select the folder MEDIA. inside media select AUDIO then select NOTIFICATION and copy the file into here.
    Disconnect your phone
    on your phone go into your messages and press the left nav button to select the settings option
    go to noftification tone and press.

    find the file that you copied and select it
    Hey presto you should have this tone as your sms tone

    any probs give us a shout or if you need to know any other way

    Thanks Kevmars. I'll try this. Part of my question (I realise I may nor have made this v clear) is how do I stop the notoification tone announcing the arrival of emails ? I have a good tone for sms at the moment but it goes off for every email too !

    Simply change the notification settings within your email app, change to never, and you will have to manually check your mail, but will not Notify you all the time,
    i simply changed it to every 3-4 hours, then its not all the time.

    but if you go the method that i have mentioned above aswell and create to seperate tones (notifications and email) your email notification wont go off when you get a text and visa versa. I have got four different tones on mine. SMS, email, facebook notifications and ring tone.
