        This was 'updated', in my case, I set my ringtone to "Hey, LISTEN!" from zelda.

        Then when windows 8.1 (cortana) came out, they moved it. You could not longer see the SMS sound in the sounds panel, but you CAN go into "change app sounds" and you'll notice that 'Messaging' is an app.

        Here's the odd/ buggy part - if you think you're in the right spot, and check that sound to change it (my wife got annoyed at my SMS sound) it'll display "Nokia - Default".

        Since this was NOT my zelda sound, I figured I was in the wrong place, but alas, if you DO change that, it will go back and update your actual SMS sound.

        It's just a little 'bug' that it doesn't correctly display the sound file when you first upgrade to 8.1

        Ok since apparently every one here can't seem to add a simple custom alert to their device I'll be back to post video on how to do so.

        How do you set custom sounds for Windows 8? I tried adding from the Configurations Menu in Notifications but there are no custom sounds from my phone available, only the default ones.

        Got the 8.1 version - cant set general sms-sound... Must be a bug...when are you going to fix it?

      • ChgiChgi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        In "Settings > Notifications + actions" every App has the "Notification sound" set on "default", but there is no place where this default ringtone can be set.

        This isn't complete. Changing the Messaging notification sound in 8.1 changes the unique vibrate pattern. Please fix this (again).

        When will this be available? I have a Windows X8 and can't currently add a custom ringtone. Every other phone has it, I've even seen little, old flip phones that have it! I have the perfect ringtone picked out and would like to set it for my text messages, not my calls. Please add this to the next update

        @anonymous we can do this ask ready. If you can't either you haven't updated your phone or you really don't know how to use it

        With WP8.1 you enable banner notifications for the desired app, go into settings > notifications and edit the app specific settings.

        PLEASE provide this also for Windows Phone 7!!!! With my Lumia 800 I can add custom ringtones, but not the alerts for messages or emails :(

        PLEASE update for INDIVIDUALITY ;) We want change also the message tones!

        Hello,
        Please provide custom sounds to set for Message as well as Email tone. which is not in my Lumia 620.(Windows Phone 8 OS)

      • allancmallancm commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You can add custom ringtones/alerts in the folder Ringtones when you connect the phone to a PC.

        And those new ringtones/alerts will be an option in the regular dropdowns of any alert in Windows Phone 8.1 for any app that shows up in the notifications + actions menu.

        So I think for Windows 8.1 is finally complete.
