I have read quite a few ways to have TEXT/message notification ringtone. I have tried it all but nothing works. I set up a file under my SDcard and the alert is there but I have NO WAY of getting it to alert for incoming text messages. Everytime I attempt to set it, it will not let me, so I am stuck with the Android basic alerts, which SUCK!
anyway to do this? I have gone to messages, to menu and to ringtone under notification, and even though it is under ZEDGE ringtones, it WILL NOT let me set it, I click on it and the green dot shows up but when I go to actually set it, nothing. any ideaS? thanks

i have an app called rings extended. its not an actual ringtone app. all it does is give you access to all your files when you select a ringtone. so you would go to messaging, settings, then when you click on notification ringtone, a menu will pop thay will say android system, music player, or my files (or whatever the name of your file explorer is, mine is root explorer). just use your file explorer or music player to select the tone. also when you click set on zedge and it turns green, thats for incoming calls ring.

Try Ringdroid too... Ringtones and Notifications are different formats of audio files. Get Ringdroid, open that file with Ringdroid and SAVE it as a Notification. Then select the notification version. I suspect you may be trying to set a ringtone as a notification (which are different and you cannot mix).
