        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!

        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.

        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!

        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 ?
