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.
Thanks for your suggestion for custom sounds. Always great to see such great feedback and excitement about this feature. While we can’t promise to ship every suggestion that gets submitted, we will be sure that our product development team receives your feedback. What’s your great idea? Keep those votes coming!

Custom Text Tones was one of the big downfalls for iPhone for a while. It is a little sad to see that Windows overlooked this feature.
I recently purchased the Nokia Lumia 928 for my wife and myself and this is one feature we hope to see available soon.
imagine a public place with 20 people..
if 1 gets a sms, 10 people will need to check there phone, cause every windows phone has the same allert!

I have always been a big supporter of microsoft/windows, but if I can't even change my text/sms sounds to a custom one, I may have to look into another smartphone. I enjoyed it when I had my HTC android and I would like to see it with my Nokia Lumia 920. Please have an update for wp8. Thanks.
Sinister1 I wouldn't be surprised (ok maybe I'm just be too optimistic) if the Nokia app saves the day in the end but only for Lumia users
I too a Nokia fan and windows will have to go to android or iPhone when my contract runs out not only is the volume rubbish on my lumia 800 this not being able to change msg alert tones is rubbish it will be bye bye Nokia and windows if they don't sort it out
I too am annoyed that I cannot change msg alert tone I want a change as sick of the bog standard tones
Please create the feature for customs sounds for SMS, MMS and so on! I really need it because I like to personalize my Lumia 920 Thank you!
Nokia just released a new version of their ringtone maker which now allows you to make your ringtones up to 60 seconds long vs the 30 seconds which MS allowed... Hum okay... how about Email, MMS and SMS?? What a bunch of fucktards. http://www.wpcentral.com/nokia-updates-ringtone-maker-beta-extends-ringtone-length-60-seconds#comment-form

I was just online and MS is spending big bucks on their Scregooled ads, blasting Google of selling info to 3rd parties and sending info to the app makers, now why should MS care about that? Why not spend money on actual things that matter like F##ken custom MMS\SMS tones.. forget Google because we are getting Microscrewed!!
put it on windows phone 7.8 too please this is something usefull
I changed from Droid to Nokia 928 WP8 b/c i bought in to all the http://www.scroogled.com/ ****. I forgot that MS has to be "The Man" and control almost everything about their products. Wanted to show my wife that my new phone was better than her iphone4s. Man was I wrong. Now I'm stuck w/ this POS that I can't change my text msg alert sound to the sound I'm familiar with. I work 24hr call and have tuned my ears to hear this one sound file. Comon' Man!!

as i see this is not in wp8. ok i will by an android phone now. bye ms wp7!
>>>CUSTOM Mail and SMS TONES!!!! C'mon! All the OTHER phones are doing it <<<:'(
This needs to be sorted out, I'm starting to dislike my windows phone!
18 Months, still ignoring customers, not adding basic functionality available on all other phones is why windows phone will be dead by 2015

Believe or not, this is the decisive issue for me :) I was this --> <-- close buying a Lumia phone, but decided to wait and see if Windows Phone soon allows custom SMS sounds. Its the only reason I am not walking to shop right now.
See, when I get a message from my loved one, I do not want some factory fabricated standard notification, do I ?? :)
Please add the custom sms,mms, email ringtone please. I'm desperate now looking for the application and end up with nothing :( Please update or create application or whatsoever for this function ASAP!!!!!
Please put custom SMS tone option!!! I want that on your next update >.<
As silly as it sounds, this is one important decision factor for me when I decide if I buy WP now when I am upgrading.
