Custom sounds for SMS, MMS, Email, Notifications etc
Custom sounds for SMS, MMS, Email, Notifications etc, I know we can do ringtones on Mango but you can't set custom SMS sounds, email ect.
Should be able to set these sounds from a mp3. For instance i would love to hear the achievement unlocked or crackdown agility orb sounds...
The ability to make ANY sound (.mp3, .wav, etc.) imported onto the device via Zune or 3rd Party Application (ala "Zelda Sounds") to be used as the notification sound for most, IF NOT ALL, Windows Phone notifications to include, but not limited to, SMS, MMS, Facebook, Twitter, Email, etc.
P.S. This isn't even a "new" feature, this is just to keep pace with Android and iOS, which if this company is serious about doing, needs to make sure all current features on Windows Phone devices match those currently offered by competing manufacturers.
We can add custom ring tones, but alert tones are just as, if not more, useful. Please add them! Most people use their phones for texts and emails than they do for calls these days, so the abilitiy to add the custom alert tones would allow the user to identify who's calling based on the alert tone, be it a song clip, a custom-made sound, or even a recording of the person's name. This is a feature that is common on every other phone operating system.
It would be good to have the possibility to set a SMS Ringtone for a contact, same way like for calls.
Ability to create custom sounds for "new/incoming" text messages!
You should be able to add a custom ringtone to any alerts; text, email, etc.
I wish WP could support customized SMS, notification and email ringtones (sounds). That will be much cooler!!
I would like the xbox live achievement sound when I get a text. It would turn heads and create publicity.
You can assign custom ringtones for contacts in Mango, but you cannot assign custom alerts/tones for SMS messages or email messages.
While we have the ability to create custom ringtones finally, we still don't have the ability to make custom alerts and alarms.
We have custom ringtones through Mango but no text message tones. Should be just as easy to add them as Ringtones!
Custom sound tones for phone, text, email, etc.
If I have two email accounts: Exchange and Hotmail - I want the ability to have different sound notification when an email arrives in Hotmail vs. Exchange. Blackberry has this feature, and it is super useful. I could also set Exchange to not notify via sound at all, since I literally get an email every minute of the day on Exchange.
This feature is now available in Windows Phone 8.

Is this with only Windows 8 Black.
There is only a regular push notification tone. And there is no way to change it, even with the black update!!! Please fix that!!!
Let us update our phones )-:

Custom text It needs to be done fast I can't customize my text messages at all with a different sound other then windows **** Ugh This is a custom sound microsoft http://www.zedge.net/ringtone/114115/incoming-message/
Nokia 625 with Lumia Black.
The total period for custom reminder tones is only 10s!
How can I extend this interval?
The fact that I can't customize my own text tone is insanity. It's time to get this done MS. Chop chop
I have same problem of Hamza Sánchez Kahn, with custom reminder tones.
If the songs continue for more 10 seconds, it's cut!!!

After updating my Nokia Lumia to the Lumia Black software update, I found that custom text tones only last for a few seconds. So in my case, I'm choosing a song as a custom text alert and only plays for a few seconds.
Is there any way of extending the ringtime custom text tones.
What about WP7.8 ? is that so hard to add this feature ?
For what I have been reading at Nokia and Windows Phone official websites, in order to customise ringtones for SMS, MMS, Emails, Notifications, etc., you need to install WP version 8.0.10501.127 or later (called Lumia "Black", if you check Settings/"Extras + Info" you probably have Lumia "Amber"); this is an automatic update that will depend on your country and mobile carrier.
In my case, I have a Lumia 520 from Argentina and the update is not available yet :S
You can check the specific dates for your phone here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/
Nevertheless if anybody has a turnaround to get the customisation of ringtones for SMS, you're more than welcome!
Yes please Scotty, I, same as Letonia can only download to ringtones, not SMS, MMS. Thanks to Admin who also says it is now a feature - please add how to instructions.
@Scotty: Could you please let us know the process you did to add the ringtones for SMS, MMS, E-mail, etc?
I only managed to custom the ringtone for calls
Thanks in advance
Letonia yes it is I'm running it right now

Yes I would like to add my own text and email notifications and have always been able to do this but not on my Lumia 925.......
No SMS, email or IM tone customisation is poor. Thats pretty much all I want for my phone now!
It's not implemented on my phone :( can change the ringtone but not notification sounds :( very poor !!!
