    go to settings - sound - ringtone and tap the plus icon in the top and select your new tone. As far as I am aware you can only do this for ringtones and not notifications. Failing that, if you know what your tone is you can always try using zedge on the play store and seeing if its available on that app?

    You could also try putting the tone into your notifications folder in the internal memory? You will need some sort of file explorer for that like solid explorer trial version on the play store.

    Yeah it won't let me use it for notifications, that's a bummer. I did download it off of zedge. There has to be some sort of way to use it as my sms & mms notifications tone.

    Try placing it in your notification folder via a file explorer? It may appear in your notifications list?

    Do what everyone had said and move it to the Notifications folder. Then open the sms app. Settings, Notifications, Notifications Sounds. Choose the sound you want.
    I also highly recommend Ringo Pro. It is a paid app but you choose tone, length of play, vibration pattern, LED (when available) and can set individual text tones and group tones.

    Alright I don't know if I'm doing this right. But I just downloaded es file explorer and transfer the sms ringtone to the notifications folder. But when I go to settings, notifications and alarms, I STILL cant choose it. In fact it's not even an option to choose?

    Correction, I found the right place to put the ringtone. Went to "device, media, audio, notifications" tried to transfer the sms ringtone and now it says: open failed; EROFS (read only- file system). Wow this is confusing! All of this just to get a custom sms tone haha. Why couldn't HTC make it easy as setting your own custom ringtone for receiving calls?
