    I have managed to drop my own ringtones in for the ringtones but I can't find the folder where the ringtones are to do the same.

    Also, how do you change the text tone??

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I'd wager you've copied those ringtones to a folder on the mSD card? Try putting them in the ringtones folder on the internal storage. That should do it.

    Yep, Android is annoying that way, everything has to be in specific folders because having an option to browse your phone for the tones you want to use is just too hard for them to code apparently, lol.

    The thing is, is that the folder where all of the default ringtones are stored are impossible to find.

    Gold star to anyone who can find it...

    I think it's literally just called ringtones... I've done it with my wife's Android before. I think for phone calls it's called ringtones and for texts it's called notifications or something like that. Yes, everything has their own folder and you'll need to copy the same sound a bunch of times if you want to use a sound for different things...

    You put ringtones/alarms/notificatons in corresponding folders

    Media/Audio/Alarms - For clock alarms
    Media/Audio/Notifications - message notifications
    Media/Audio/Ringtones - for ringtones

    The problem here is that when you select the message tone the folder that pops up is a long vertical floating white window with a list of sounds. In order to use a custom sound you need to insert your ringtone into that folder. The trouble is that the folder can't be found!

    No problem, if the folder isnt there, you can create it.

    I actually dropped them in the Notifications folder which was 'empty' and they appeared together with the default ones. How odd.

    The default ones don't show in the actual folder, only the custom ones you put in will show, but when selecting what sound to use it'll be mixed in with the default ones.

    Not odd, it's how it is in all phones. Take your BB and see if you can see the default tones from file manager...

    Why isnt it possible to choose direct from a mp3.
    Or is there an app for this like it was on BB10?

    It is possible, but the file has to be in a specific folder, that's what we've all been saying...
