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!
it will be nice if u add the home screen list type to the grid and something new that is customisable and a few more options
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.
When I first got my Nokia 520 I could set custom message tones..since the update I cant and now I'm stuck with this **** ******* tone..******** Nokia I'm going back to my old Samsung
PLEASE!!!!!! WE NEED THIS!!! I have recently switched to windows phones and instantly fell in love. i ve had iphones, androids galore, blackberry the works and i just cant give up the W8. this is my second phone and i break em every month or so so please fix this for all of us!!!!!
PLEASE add also for Windows Phone 7!!!
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.
