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.
And as always, if you think this feature or any other feature needs improvement be sure to create new product suggestions so we can track them all and other users can vote on your ideas. And while we can’t promise to ship every suggestion that gets submitted, we will be sure that our product development team receives your feedback. We’re always listening!
I cannot believe that such a simple feature is not available in the first place! cannot choose custom tone! no flashlight!, no compass! no timer!.
Sure you'll say that, there are a lot of apps in the store.
My point is this,
For a Very simple feature like timer,compass, flashlight, I'm going to give up my privacy in exchange????
Most of this developers are asking for your videos,picture libraries, contact info, private data etc.
Most of this features are pretty standard for a smartphone!
Goodness! I made a mistake purchasing a Windows Phone.
You just lost one future customer! but who cares right???
Anyway, Bye and good luck Windows phone!
I have an 8 year old clamshell that can do it!
Another request for the ability to add custom sounds for incoming text messages + the ability to add a specific text sound to contacts as well.
don't think I am going to buy another Nokia, may be it can be done in the newer 8 os, going to put it down to a bad choice, and buy a different brand phone next week, was going after the Lumia 1020 but when you have just spent just on £ 300 for a Lumia 900 that has left you completely disappointed, you don't go and make the same mistake
j'ai un lumia 820 et je voudrais changer les sons émis lors de la réception d'un nouveau sms ou E-mail parce que ceux qui sont inclus dans le prgm n'émettent pas un son suffisament puissant. Mais impossible d'y parvenir avec un pgrm d'ajout de sonneries (les ajouts ne se placent que dans la liste des sonneries) on ne retrouve rien dans la liste "nouveau message vocal ou nouveau sms" dans "Paramètre\sonneries+sons"
Qui peut me donner une solution ?
The great thing about forums is that you can go to them and let others know about these issues, and perhaps when people revert back to their iPhones or Androids, MAYBE Microsoft will listen, but by then it will be too late. I'm already jumping ship when my contract is up in 9 months.
It's not fixed, as I have a Lumia 1520 with the Black update, and you are still limited to changing only certain sounds. You still can't change the awful and LOUD touch-tones when you manually dial your phone. This is insane!
Hi everybody, this annoyance is fixed once you receive the Lumia Black update so please be patient.
I have Lumia 520 (Argentina)
I love my windows phone, however I would love to be able to have custom mms, SMS, voicemail, & email ringtones!
I have a Samsung Activ Neo with Windows 8 and I can not cusomize my SMS, MMS, etc. I can customize my phone ringtone.
Above you stated it is available but it must not be for all Windows phones.
Pls for me is very imp to have different sounds for each contact. make it available
Just updated my phone. I love that I can personalize text messages now (among other things) and the app closer. Thank you!
The fact I can't have a custom text tone is outrageous.. Get to it and make it available
I retract my previous comment. You can customise ring tone/SMS tones but you have to change them on each entry in your contacts/people list. I couldn't make the default sounds change however.
"doesn't work on a Nokia 1020 running Black - it looks like you can, there are other tones to select, but incoming SMS always plays the same sound"

I use an app called "free ringtones" on my windows 8 Black update Nokia 820. Got an email through today from "mobile Guru" above, in response to my long-ago request to windows phone admin. to let me do custom ringtones for SMS messages etc. Have just gone into my phones ringtones and sounds settings, tapped the "New Text or IM" box, took me straight to my phone's downloaded ringtones, selected one for my SMS texts, and hey presto, it all worked. I now have my phone that trills out my chosen ringtone, whenever a text comes through. Brilliant..so thank you Microsoft!
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 )-:
