    Is there a way to change the Notification tones for email and texts. I have new tones downloaded and can change the ringtones, but can't figure out how (or if you even can) to chnge the tones for the other notifications.

    I've had the same issue. I know to go into the settings for the particular app, but when you do that, the only options it gives are the stock notification tones. How do you set a non-stock notification tone for messaging or email without having to user the default ringtone option which sets all your notifications the same?

    Where's the non-stock notification tone? It should appear as an option if it's in a folder named Notifications on your SD card.

    I downloaded them from mabilo ringtones app, so they are in whatever folder they are automatically saved in. I'm not sure where that would be. I don't see a folder called Notifications on the sdcard. Do I have to create it?

    Great! Thanks. Will that work for ringtones as well or just for notifications?

    Make a file on your sdcard and name it "media" inside of that file make one called "audio" and inside of that file you can make three files,"ringtones" "notifications" and "alarms" then put the sounds you would like to use in their corresponding files

    For non-rooted you can use astro , sdcard/media/audio and create "notifications" folder. Put the clips in there and you can access them from the notifications for your texts etc.
