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

Hi anonymous, I don't know which version of windows phone is installed on your phone but this feature is available long time ago.
Here is the documentation how to do it:
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
I would like to customize my text message alert sounds....
With WP8.1 you enable banner notifications for the desired app, go into settings > notifications and edit the app specific settings.
how I can customize my ringtone whatsapp and facebook
yes this needs to be added to the wp7 os
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)
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!
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!
