    Has anyone figured out how to download and insert new notification tones? I tried the method used for the Motorola Droid, but it does not work for the HTC.

    I just got done reading this and maybe this will help you. I haven't tried it myself, so any feedback is appreciated...

    You can set the track-ball notifications for "Missed Call", "SMS/MMS", "Email". "VM", and "reminders"

    Settings --> Sound & Display --> notifications --> Notification flash

    once again hope this helps.

    You can use ringdroid to make your own.

    Notification will only allow you to turn on the notification for each of the items. It does not give you the option to change the "canned" tones that come with the phone. I know how to download new tones, I just can't find a way to utilize them for Notification. Any other ideas, I would appreciate.

    I downloaded a ring tone for my text alerts and put into the media folder. The Eris recognizes the ringtone for notifications but when I select it it is just one of the generic tones that is already on the phone.

    it does not appear that you can customize each alert by different sounds...sorry.

    Does anyone know if there is anyway to have the track ball light more frequently or for a longer duration when you do get a notification? I find I am missing many texts because I do not notice the little light?

    Thanks

    All you have to do is make a few folders on your Sd card.
    Like this.
    Alerts
    Sd/media/audio/alerts

    Ringtones
    Sd/media/audio/ringtones

    Notifications
    Sd/media/audio/notifications

    And put the sound/sounds you want in the corresponding folder.
    It takes a little while for the sounds to show up in the settings window. May have to reboot.

    If you want to make a different tone for each notification ie. Email, sms, whatever. Just start the app you want to change the sound for and click menu then settings then notifications. Once u set the notification from within the app it only sets the sound for that app.

    As far as ringtones go. All you have to do is play a sound or song in the default media player. Click menu while the song is playing and theres an option to set it as ringtone. Just put the music in a folder called music on your sd card.

    Yes.... its that simple.
    Hope this helps.

    no i do not know of any way to make the trackball light longer or differently.... but handcent sms will allow you to change the led indicator so it will keep flashing when you have an unread sms. thats what i use and it works very well....

    Handcent sms will allow you to make the trackball flash for extended periods of time. Open handcent then under settings go to notifications scroll down until you see the trackball settings.

    Let me know if it works for you. I think its working on mine.

    The led color changer is not working in my eris. It did on my moto droid.
