Can any tell me if its possible to have MP3's as ringtones? Do they have to be stored in the phones memory etc?

Many thanks!

go to settings-sound and notifications-notifications and set the main ringtone there, or if you go to contacts you can set individual contact ringtones

Yes, but they will only show up in the drop down list if they are on the root.

What I mean by root is not in a folder, but directly on the media or you could put them in my documents but not in any folder in my documents

Above method does work and MP3 can be both seen as selections on all pull down. I have a problem on the SMS because the unit wont stop playing the mp3. I tried dismissing the notification and still the mp3 kept on playing. If another sms comes in , it will also play the mp3 (means 2 tunes at the same time). I always had to restart the unit. I have PDA: I900DXHJ1/DXHJ1 and PHONE: I900DXHJ1 device versions. Any ideas how to fix this?
