Are you referring to ringtones or sms tones? For ringtones, you have to make sure you press on "apply" at the bottom of the screen. I am not trying to insult your intelligence, but sometimes its something very easy that we miss.

If you want to use custom .mp3's or any downloaded files for notifications and or/ringtones you will have to create a new file directory on your sd card using a file explorer. I use es file explorer for this. First create a new folder named media then a subfolder inside of it called audio then notifications then ringtones and alarms. Now you have the directory path media/audio/notifications ringtones alarms, just like the root system directory. Any files you put in the last folders will show up in the corresponding stock picker for use. Any file you want to use you copy/move to the last the folders of your newly made directory. Use them for the corresponding actions, text messages, email, google talk, ect., notifications. Ringtones for well, ringtones. Alarms, set to go off on that specific tone.
Hope that helps, it is the easiest way I have found to do this without root or having to connect your phone to a PC.:p

What is your default notification sound set to? In the settings menu under sounds -> notifications is that the default sound you are hearing? Try changing that to one of your custom alerts and see if that works.

At first I had trouble setting stuff to be silent. Each app that has notifications has its own sound setting within the apps settings.

Sms app/settings /notifications
i used zedge to download a custom notification sound and it was in my list and I set it.

Maybe there is a problem with the file?

If you a hearing the sound that is set as the default notification sound when you get texts rather than the custom sound set in the messaging app then yea I'd guess the file is bad.
