    Are you talking about a different ringtone for certain text message contacts? If that's the case then I think Handcent is what you're looking for. Oh, and welcome to the forum, kriddle!

    It does seem like the Text Messaging apps use a different 'tone' list than the ringtones. I was wondering the same thing, how do you make a new 'Alert' tone, and I haven't yet found the answer.

    That said, I haven't looked too hard, mostly just watching threads like this.

    Hit menu (four lines) then scroll to notifications. Android system. Any ringtones saved there you can set for notifications for texts. Or when you download a new tone set it as a notification instead I'd ringtone.

    Both of you, try this http://www.droidforums.net/forum/re...forums-stock-solutions-thread.html#post427101 and once you create the folder structure, you can choose whatever you want for notifications, alarm, or ringtones.
