Galaxy S3 Mini: Custom Ringtones or Notification Sounds for Calendar, Text Messages and Email.
I've had the Samsung S3 III mini for about a week and have searched the internet for what I'm looking for and have found nothing.
The first thing I'd like to say is that I don't like any of the default ringtones or notification sounds, so I created my own. I connected my phone to my computer and have copied the mp3 files to the music and sounds folders on my SD card and ringtones, sounds and music on the phone. So far I have been able to use a custom ringtone for when my phone rings and alarms. Setting alarms is kind of a pain because whenever I set one, I have to choose the ringtone I want for each alarm. I'm not able to set it up to use the custom ringtone that I want automatically. The calendar, Email, and Messaging will only allow me to choose the default ringtones or sounds. I have searched the phone directories and can't find the default sounds and ringtones to possibly add my custom ringtones.
Is there a way to add custom ringtones to the default list of ringtones for the calendar, messaging and email?

For the Calendar, Email and Messaging the MP3's need to be in a folder named Notifications on the Internal SD.SGH-T999

Welcome to the forums!
If for some reason you don't see the Notifications folder, just drop them anywhere on the phone, then disconnect the phone and use the 'My Files' app on the phone to find them and move them to the Notifications folder.
Once those files are there they should show up in the list when you want to select a ringtone/notification.
