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!
Yes I can customize calendar notifications but not more than 10 seconds. Do you call that customize?
I often don't hear my calendar notifications because they are TOO SHORT!
My windows 8x phone is completely updated as of a few minutes ago and I still can not customize my text tones. Is it not available for my phone?
So how the **** do I download the upgrade. I go to updates but there is nothing there. No point in blowing your trumpet if the down load process is too complicated.
How exactly can i do this with my Lumia 520?
You missed the part about custom sounds for email notifications. I can now set a custom ringtone for an SMS sender but NOT EMAIL!. I had this feature on my Blackberry and really miss it. I work in IT and support many servers. When the server sends me SCOM alerts I need to have my phone sound an alarm, kind of like a pager. I actually had this capability with a pager in the 90's, then had it on my Blackberry for like, 10 years. Now no longer have this capability. For crying out loud it can't be that hard to have included this feature in GDR3. Now how much longer do I have to wait? Grrr!!

I noticed that there were 79012 votes for this to happen but where do all these votes go! if not to nokia customer support, as they say they don't know of any immediate action to change for this year but surely with this amount of unhappy customers they would look in to it,

I have been on to Nokia and there is no such upgrade at the moment as I have a lumia 920 (windows 8)so where this info has come from I don't know, can anybody enlighten me please as I desperately want this.
HI everyone, this feature is only available with the new update (GDR3) but for Nokia Lumia 520 it is not available yet, here in Mexico with Telcel, we can not update our Lumias, we are hoping maybe next year Windows phone bittersweet will be available.

REF : Custom sounds for SMS, MMS, Email, Notifications etc. HOW DO I GET THIS ONTO MY PHONE PLEASE???? Ther are no updates available for 620.
Theverge.com posted an article in mid October about the latest update and what it includes. It says, "Windows Phone 8 Update 3 will start rolling out in the coming weeks and will continue over the next several months." So, it's coming, along with other requested changes like being able to quickly close apps. Here's the article:
A lot of idiotic comments on this topic! Shure, I have missed this option but missing the option have not made me change mobile platform.... Those who write this in the forum has never owned a WP because it's superior compared to the other platforms. Just wait to you will receive tour update to your phone and the last gap is closed !
Um.... I call shenanigans. As of today, Dec. 3rd, 2013 this feature is absolutely NOT available on my Nokia Lumia 920 running WP8. What's the real story?
I still can't add downloaded ring tones to be my SMS notification... So how do we change it?
i dont own a windows phone anymore, haven't had one for the past 3 years because of the complete and utter lack of user friendliness on these devices as well as app options.
There are plenty of things wrong with windows phones, which is why no one really buys them. They will never dig themselves out of the trap they dug themselves into since the unveiling of windows 8.
Its like a slightly better version of vista.
either way, my rant is over now.
Please remove me from your mailing address now. (Because that doesn't even work on your own site.)

"This feature is now available in Windows Phone 8."
Should start rolling out when your provider is ready?
you mean its now working in beta development?
is only on new win 8 phones?

Come on, please at least give us a bone here. This statement is SO open it means almost nothing.

That is the use of this feature, if my phone is not updated to Windows Phone 8.

Philip Hasterok commented
I appreciate my votes back, but this is still not working for me. Do I need to D/L an app or what am I and it seems everyone else missing? Didn't have this issue with Google Android phone...I am just saying.
P. Williams commented
Seriously? LOL! There is no way this **** works without GDR3 update. They only closed it because they have released the GDR3 update. That doesn't mean that there is an update on your phone right now. You need to wait for GDR3 for hack your device.
