    Why, if my BB is hooked up to my computer thru the USB, do the alert tones change? If I get a text message, I have a certain alert selected. If my phone is connected to my computer, another alert sounds.

    It only happens for text messages. Regular phone calls and BBM alerts all use the selected alert.

    Any ideas?

    Well, I didn't realize this happened on only SMS alerts, though I do remembering the alerts changing when hooked up. I don't know the reason, but I know it's normal.

    Phone has no access to device memory where the ringtones are stored (or your sd card) if mass storage mode is enabled and connected to your pc

    Thanks for the replies. It makes sense when you explain it that way. At least I know now that it's normal.

    I had the same problem, to fix this, I just stored my alert sound file directly on the device memory instead of the SD card.
