    Thumbs down I hate the text tones/ notification tones that come preloaded.

    Hello all,
    I just purchased the new Sony Xperia Z1, I love this phone to pieces but my biggest
    pet-peeve is that it does not allow you to change your text/notification tone to anything else besides the ones that
    come preloaded in the phone, I text more than I call and I would love to be able to customize my notification tones.
    Something I hope Sony will fix or if anyone knows a way around it?

    You could try downloading more tones with the Zedge app? Set them as the ones you want in settings.

    It only allows you to change the phone ringtone to a downloaded tone, it will not allow you to change any other.

    Really? I don't have the same phone as you but on this one I changed my normal notification to a Star Trek tone.

    You could use a different texting app that has its own notification settings.

    Not entirely true. Using many music apps, you can use a "set as notification" and "set as ringtone" command to do it. These days, though, most people just use . It free, and it kicks tush.

    When you load Zedge, choose "notifications", instead of "ringtones", that'll go a long way....
