    Default How to set ringtones for text messaging

    Hi there. I just downloaded some ringtones for my VZW blackberry 8830 and I have them set as ringtones for incoming phone calls.

    My question is how do I set these ringtones for incoming texts? THanks in advance and what a great website!

    On my 8800:
    Profiles> Advanced...> Normal> Click Menu Button> Edit> SMS Text

    And change your settings to your likings.
    Be sure the file is in the media/ringtones folder.

    Goodluck and Welcome!

    You can't set the individually for separate contacts on the 8830 unless you create a profile for each contact. To set one tone for all your SMS however goto Profiles > Advanced > edit the selected profile and scroll down to SMS Text

    (teranceh and his sweet avatar beat me to it - but yea thats how ya do it)

    thanks guys...appreciate it. Im thinking about getting rid of my blackberry since I do not use the email function much, i use less than 450min/mo. and the only time i use the internet is when I am taking a dump, I am grossly overpaying on my monthly phone bill. this is mainly why I am thinking of dumping my BB in lieu of these 2 phones. What are your thoughts on this?

    Samsung SCH-i760


    or

    LG Voyager™

    The LG Voyager is pretty expensive if you think you're paying quite a bit... you'd be tempted to get internet access, too. I say buy the Samsung.

    For future reference, I think I speak for most people here when I say that you should save those toilet stories for close friends and loved ones.

    I wasn't offended... part of the joke was that you should share it with your "loved ones." But I guess that includes everyone in the forums, right? Haha.

    Thanks for all the help can someone tell me why when I download ringtones from crackberry I can't see them in my media center. I can only see them when I go to set a ring tone for a person in my contact list. I have a blackberry curve 8330 and running verizon version 4.5
    Thanks

    Madtown, are you saving them to the media card or device memory? Mine all show up in my media card under ringtones. Kayla, are you editing the profile your phone is set to and not another?
