    Default setting custom alerts/ringtones?

    How do you set custom alerts for different events like text messages/SMS, MMS, different email accounts, and different ringtones for different contacts??

    I found the default ringtone setting, but nothing for different events?

    To set a custom tone for all SMS open your sms and hit the menu key and then settings.

    To set a tone for a contact open your people and select the contact and there will be a spot to change the ring tone.

    If i got a ringtone sent to my phone via text message, how do i save it to the phone? When i tap on the attached MP3 file, it just plays and then closes it. I can't find an option to save it to the phone.

    Create a media folder and inside that create a ringtones folder.
    Place your mp3s that you want to use as ringtones in there.

    The easiest way to set a mp3 to your ring tone is to open the song and hit menu then select as ring tone.

    While the phone is connected to a PC, make 2 folders on the SD card (if using one).

    Media/Ringtones (will be for ringtones)
    Media/Notifications (will be for notification sounds)

    Put the sound files in each of these folders you want to use... You need to then unmount the card as storage (set phone to USB charge only) before the phone will see your files as ringtones or notifications...

    Does anyone know how to save a ringtone that was sent to the phone via Text message. All i can do is play the ringtone and then it goes back to the txt message that it came in; no option to save to the SD card or phone storage.

    I believe this requires a 3rd party app, although I haven't needed this yet so I don't have it. Search the Android App Market.

    Sorry for the hijack, but I'm still trying to figure out if there's a way to set a different tone for mms on the Incredible, or if we're stuck with just one tone for all notifications. Also, at some point I figured out how to set a different tone for voice mail, but now I can't remember how to do it. Lol! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Hijack over.
