    Hi,

    I just got the HTC Droid Eris, I've been trying to set the tone for my text messages. I went into Notifications and set the ringtone, and it did not work, only played the initial preset one. Then I made a custom ringtone for notifications, and it still didn't change except for that notifications such as emails, and facebook updates would play another sound which wasn't even my new custom ringtone. Is there a different way to set it or is my phone messed up?

    Thanks

    Yes, I know how to use the app. And, I've done that already. I figured out what the problem was, you can't set text message tones from Notifications. But, thanks anyway.

    Open your sms app then press menu hardware key. Then settings. Then notifications. From within the app. Set it there and you'll be good.

    Open the "message" app on your Eris - Then follow the directions to change the notification - I just did it myself - I'm currently checking out Zedge :)

    Yeah, it goes more like this..

    Messages (SMS) > Menu (button at bottom) > Settings > Select Sound.

    Then just simply select your ringtone.

    Does anyone know if you can set contact ringtones for text messages? I have some contacts that have their own ringtone for calls, but all text messages have the same ringtone and I would like to have it set where when some contacts send me a text their personal ringtone is used

    I have Malibo to download ringtones, and from within the app you set it to notifications and this sets it for texts (and also notifications for voicemails, etc) but I havnt figured out any other way to set downloaded ringtones for texts just calls.
    My problem is the ringtone is for all texts, even if the person has a specified ringtone for calls
