    Well, I want to change my text & picture message notification, it gets old hearing "Droooooooooooid" every time.... I found the menu but none of the sounds on my SD card show up.
    I also can't go into my SD card & set any of my sounds to be my text or picture message notification sound.

    Is there another way to do this?

    Any & all help appreciated!

    First set the tone you want to use as a ringer. Once it's been set as a ringer it will show in the messaging tone menu too.

    Tried it - nothing.
    NOTHING I have on my SD card will show up in the messages settings box to set it as my message notification.

    Create a folder called Media on your SD. Inside of that, create a folder called Audio. Inside of that, create three folders Notifications, Alarms, and Ringtones.

    • Media
      • Audio
        • Notifications
        • Ringtones
        • Alarms
    Then copy your media files that you want to use to the specific folders.

    might have to reboot the phone after adding the folders or maybe unmount and remount the SD card.

    view a message of a person your want to change, in the upper right corner of the handcent app click the person with the gear, this lets you set individual settings, go to notification settings, scroll down to notification tones.

    Also if you were to go to bubble settings instead of notification, you can change the color of the bubble, text, and also set user specific backgrounds.

    Also, Ringdroid is a decent app to create new ringtones and notifications with audio you have stored on your phone. I use it and love it personally.
