    im looking to set a downloaded audio clip to play when i receive a text message. i opened the "notification ringtone" in sound settings and the downloaded clip is not in there. i opened the music app and the clip is in there. it will allow me to "use as phone ringtone" but theres no option for text message. how do i do this?

    when you hook up your phone to the computer, you should access your phone SD card.

    make a folder called media in the root of the SD card
    inside media put a new folder called notifications
    locate the downloaded file and put it in the notifications folder
    your good to go :icon_ banana:

    for future use also put a ringtones and alarms folder inside the media folder

    Hi, I've done all that and still do not have the file listed.

    Also the ringtones I down load and set as ringtone keep being reset to a random MP3 song in my music player. It works for a while and then changes without warning. Could this be caused by my App Killer ?

    What messaging app do you have? I was having the same problem with handcent sms. I then figured out that you have to open the messaging app and then go into the settings for that app and there is a notifications option where you can select the tone.
