    Hi, new here, just got my Droid last week. This phone is fricken awesome!! Done a lot of reading here and thank you all for your help.

    I have downloaded ringtones (that ive made and had for years, in mp3 format) to the card, and have them set to ring for various people in my contacts, but unlike the RAZR, the default ringtone doesnt ring when that person sends you a text. Ive dowloaded SMS Popup and have the light set to blink a different color for certain people but the custom ringtone isnt listed in the list that you can assign. Just the stock ones.

    Any ideas how to get the ringtones Ive moved to the card to the phone so they can be set to default text ringtone, or how to just get them to be used form the card??

    Thanks in advance.

    I was wondering the same thing. I'd like to have custom ring tones for when someone in my contacts sends me a text.

    TIA :) for any help on this.

    ringdroid will do everything you need. just save as whatever, notification (texts), alarm, ringtone, whatever.

    after a person texts you, when you have that screen open with the texts from that person, (as if you just opened a new text), there's a button top right, looks like a person's shape and a what looks like a gear, tap that, it brings up "personalization", then you can customize the sounds, led notification, and how the actual threaded texts appear JUST for that specific contact.

    when you usb-mount the droid, create a folder on the SD card called "notifications" then dump all the mp3s there. I did this and it's been flawless.

    open Handcent
    menu key
    settings
    notifications setting
    select default ringtone
    ok/cancel
    back
    back
    should be at a list of people you have sent a message to.
    select a person to see their message thread
    top right corner there is a gear icon, select this
    notification settings
    (notice their name is at the top of the screen now)
    select ringtone
    ok/cancel
    go back to the main setting to confirm your original default ringtone is the same still
    have them text you to confirm the ringtone is set for them.

    Obviously the guy that posted this thread can because he got your suggestion to work.... ringdriod was the key. Zedge didnt show me the ringtone on my phone that I wanted to use...

    and even tho there was 6 minutes between your posting and mine, I didnt see yours till after i posted, so dont be a d!(k.
