    hi, maybe a stupid question (could find/understand via search).

    I an using handcent and have downloaded several songs via mabilo. I have set my different incomming calls with different songs, but I want to do the same with texts, but it only gives the original preset options. how do I use these songs for texts. (I read to make a different folder for notifications , with I did withastro, but it still dosn't come up. so if this is the answer, please walk me through it a little slower)

    thanks.

    BTW I love this forum. it has helped me a loot so far!:yr1:

    Are you wanting a different ringtone just for texts? or a different ringtone for individual texts?

    Pretty sure you just need to create a folder on your SD card called "Notifications" (use Astro to do this or mount through your computer) and dump your tones in there for them to show up in the text/notifications list.

    Same can be done for adding ringtones by placing songs in a folder called "Ringtones" on the card.


    Edit: Sorry, I see now that you already tried this......strange, because I know this usually works.

    Install RingDroid. Then you can use any MP3 or audio file to crop and create notification and ring tones, separately.

    I did it!!:icon_ lala:

    I'll walk the other dysfunctional people like me through it:

    First i used ASTRO. made new folder titled "notifications", I downloaded ringtones via madibo, so I went to that file (in the "com" file, pressed "multi" on the bottom, pressed each song, then "edit"then "copy" , went back to notification folder and pasted.
    powered down, then up again to reset everything.

    then you can get to an individual text either via contacts or I used handcent.

    once in the texting area , open the head/shoulders /with gear icon (don't know the official name) at the top right. this pulls up the personalization screen. press notification settings, then there s a select ringtone, if you scroll up, your downloads should be there, select one, and it should be used for that text number.

    I hope I didn't embarrass myself with my newbieishness,:blush: and that I helped someone.

    goodluck.
