    Question Customizing notification tones...

    I know this has been covered elsewhere in the forum, but the instructions there don't seem to work for the Vortex, so...how do I go about setting different tones for SMS, MMS and voicemail? Any suggestions? The manual gave great instructions for setting a custom alarm tone, but nothing else that I could find.

    Hi. I just got my Vortex yesterday, and so far, I love it. Here's how to add ringtones to the notifications. Plug the Vortex into the computer w/USB cable. Go to 'My Computer' and double click the "removable storage" icon. A bunch of folders will come up. These are your SD card files. Add a notifications folder to it. Make sure "notifications" is in all lowercase letters. Next, copy and paste your ringtones into this folder and you're all set.

    Thanks--had done that already, and I can set ONE ringtone for ALL messages: text, pix, voicemail. I don't seem to have the option to set a separate tone for EACH of those types of messages, so that I know from the sound which I've received.

    Try WhoIsit Beta from the market. You can set custom ringtones for calls, text, Gmail and mms for each contact.

    Thanks, but user reviews of WhoIsIt indicate that you can't use custom tones with it...I know, picky, picky, picky! But my old LG Chocolate 3 allowed me to have separate custom ringtones for calls, SMS, MMS, and voicemail. I miss that.

    Whoisit does allow custom tones like you seek.I had it until the beta expired.

    You can use custom ringtones, just download a ringtone picker like Rings Extended.

    Thanks for both suggestions. Problem is, I don't want separate tones for every single contact, or even those I use most frequently. I want one individual tone for ALL calls, a separate individual tone for ALL SMS, a separate individual tone for ALL MMS, and a separate individual tone for ALL voicemail. Neither of those apps seems to be configured for that...And I want to use my own sounds, not the phone's presets. Oh well...it was worth investigating...thanks again to everybody who offered potential solutions.

    I liked my Chocolate, especially the varied ringtones, but as long as I can use my sounds for call ringtones, alarms and the one tone for all other messages (that's the irritating part, too!), I'm okay with the Vortex. It's not perfect, but neither was the Chocolate. Now if some of you creative apps developers are trolling the forum for suggestions, mine would be to create an app that allows one individual "personalized" tone for all calls, one for all SMS, one for all MMS and one for all voicemail--for those of us who aren't so much worried about who's communicating as what type of communication it is! THAT would make the Vortex almost perfect in my eyes!
