    Does anyone know how to set a ringtone or mp3 file as notification setting instead of only able to set as ringtone? I hate the limitation to few notification sounds. I'm not talking about soundboards apps, I have a mp3 file that I want to set as notification. Help..... Thanks!

    I attempted that but it doesnt show on the notification ringtone, just phone ringtone. It's ok, I just figured out how to do it by creating a "notification" folder from my SD card and used it as notification ringtone. Thanks for your help and appreciate the quick response.

    Its nice to receive help when asked. This is a great forum!

    I'm not sure if creating a notification folder on my SD card worked or me getting an app call ringdroid. You can import your mp3 to ringdroid and set a specific length/area you want on the song and save it as alarm/notification/ringtones. Its pretty cool and very easy.

    x2. I also grabbed Ringdroid, and noticed that it created new folders on the SD card for ringtones, notifications, and alarms.

    I was having a hard time figuring out how to save mp3's as ringtones after I had imported them onto the SD card. Ringdroid solved that. And of course, as a bonus, it'll let you cut ringtone-length samples from music, too. No more editing songs on the PC.

    Setting notification sounds

    I downloaded the Ringdroid and it made my ringtones all choppy and they didn't sound good, I just downloaded aRing and it works pretty well so far.
