As topic title. I can see where you can change the incoming calls ringtone for one of your own audio files, but sms just shows a list of default tones to pick from. Can not find an option for importing other sources and changing it to one of your own

Is this a really stupid nooob question? sorry if it is. Still finding my way around.

Thanks. Carl..

Right, on the SD card, create a folder called "Media" - without the quotes obviously..lol
Then inside that "Media" folder, create folders called, "Notifications", "Ringtones", "Alarms". - again, without quotes.
Now, if you want to change your message tone, chuck your .mp3's in the "Notifications" folder, then open your message client(the little green icon on the home screen), press the menu touch sensitive button(lower left under the screen), select "Settings" then scroll down to Ringtones, and just change it there.

This can be done for main notifications, for emails, Calendar, messages, and you can put mp3's in the Ringtones folder and set them too, in the main phone settings screen, and you can change the tones for just about everything.

That way, he will only get the standard ones...NOT ones he wants to add himself, or customised tones..:lol:

Read my post, that's how it's done.!!
