    I had the storm 2 blkberry and changed it out for the new droid x. I just got it today. I have figured out how to get the ringtones to play when there is a new text message and email. What I can't figure out is how to customize them from my ring tones that I had from my memory card. I want to use my songs that I have Thanks for your help.
    Is there also a way when I see a new email to delete it from just the hand held device like the Blkberry did?
    thanks Again

    If I am reading right you want songs on your phone to be ringtones and or email alerts? If so go to the song on your music player, do a long press and hit set as ringtone. As far as the email it is a direct sync so what you do on one reflects on the other.

    thanks. I did that and it said saved as ringtone. I did find it there. I am actually talking about the notification ringtones, that is what I want to customize. Thanks

    Petty sure that method will only set them up a phone ringers, not notification ringers as you are asking. The easiest way to do this is to create a folder named "notifications" and place your mp3 files there, they will then appear under notification ringers. If you do this from a file manager on the phone you will need to make android rescan your sd card, settings-> sd card->unmount then mount again should do it.

    Note: files placed in this folder will not appear in music players, android ignores them as media.

    But are they custom ringtones? He wants to use music mp3 files as his notification ringtone.

    I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding either way.

    Download "Ring's Extended" from the Market. When you go to Notification Ringtone in the menu select Ring's extended and then you will see your Music Files. Hope that help's...

    thanks for your help. i got it to work for the texting but not the emails. When I switch it it doesn't stay. It goes back to default.
    Is there also a way to turn off the voice when a phone call comes.
    thanks
    Again.

    Although the info in this thread is good and did help me some I stillhave not found the answer to my exact question.

    Bacground.

    I have three work e-mails and two private e-mails. each in my mind has its own priority. I.E. work1 e-mail is mor important that work2 or work3.

    What i would like to have is a different notification tone (MP3) for each e-mail address.

    I.E. work1 mp3 would say Lab Gear
    work2 mp3 would say MRR
    work 3 mp3 would say Magmedix

    So how do i set a different notification tone for each individual address.

    Thanks in advance.
