    Handcent SMS also excellent allows you to change the color of the blinking LED so you can have no audio notifications and change the color and blink rate of the LED.

    Def worth the download.

    handcent or ChompSMS

    whatever you'd like works, though i find Chomp's interface to be a lot crisper, though handcent has many applications integrated inside of it by default.

    If you're an enthusiast or the type to have the most control over your device

    i'd actually download chompsms and use sms popup,

    sms popup has it's code open source so many other developers can integrate it (ie handcent) but if you want the latest and greatest, you have to get it standalone.

    You can use this file structure to play any mp3 for any TYPE of notification (ringtone sms mms email or alarm)... but not for individual contacts (except ringtones)

    You just create the folders on your SD card using Windows/mac

    Instructions for PC dummies:

    mount your SD card to you PC...
    OPEN the SD card (removable drive e: or what ever it is on your PC)to view files...
    right click and goto "new" then "folder", then name the folder.

    open that folder and do the same for each directory in the file structure!

    Not sure if they will, i use only MP3s. Try it and let us know... otherwise i would suggest converting them.

    Let's get this straight. You create all 4 folders off the root of the storage card?
    Or is Audio the first folder with Ringtones, Alarms and Notifications under it?

    This is correct (create all folders off the root). And I was able to use wma's for alarms, but I did have to power off and back on before it would recognize them.

    you can create these folders anywhere...the system will detect them HAH!

    you can create a single "media" folder with subfolders "alarms,notifications,etc" and it'll work

    or you can just create the alarms,notifications,etc in the root of the sd card, and it will work as well

    your choice!
