1. Attach the phone via USB to a computer.
2. Drop down the notification bar and tap "Select to copy files to/from your computer", then "Mount".
3. Create a folder on your SDCard called "Media"
4. Create 3 folders under the new "Media" folder, each called "Ringtones", "Notifications", and "Alarms".
5. Place the mp3 you want to use into the corresponding folder. (i.e. If I want to use an mp3 for an SMS Alert, I would put it under "Notifications". Or as a ringtone when someone calls me, under Ringtones, or as an alarm sound, under "Alarms", etc.)
6. Drop down the notification bar on the phone again and select "Turn off USB Storage", then "Turn off".
7. Wait for it to prepare the SDCard, then give it a few minutes to refresh all of the tones.
8. You're done.

Note: All folders are without quotes.

Or.... you can long press on a song in the music player and select "use as phone ringtone"
That doesn't work for setting tones as Notification sounds or Alarm sounds.

Great post. I hate downloading apps for things I can just do myself.

Thanks OP, I was wondering how to set an mp3 as my alarm. Was getting tired of waking every morning to a loud, annoying alarm.

Useful information. Thank you.

Deleted a page and half of unnecessary banter.

This is a useful thread so lets stay on topic gentlemen.

Thank-you.
