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!
All Microsucks has to do is release it in the form of an update; so what's the **** hold up already?!
I Dont understand how come this isnt a feature already. Some olders phones can do this. My theory is is that when you made these phones you should have taken the features that other phones have and then added your own stuff to it.
It isn't hard Microsoft just refuse for some reason to implement it properly
It shod not be so hard to make it work

The lack of this feature really is a bummer. I'm not so dramatic about it as everyone else, but when you have had the same SMS tone for 4 years, it is depressing to not be able to continue using it due to an iPhone level oversight.
all I want is to hear my Mario coin collection sound effect when getting a text message.
and another baby... A-yeah-eah...
I like all the other users on here (and those who don't know about this site) am so not happy that, with all the mod cons phones have today, that I can not make my phone my own by simply adding my own Msg alert!!!! Shocking, to top it of, I would go back to my old phone but you've now made the sim card smaller!!! That you thought we would want???? hmmm NO!!!, quite simply we would all like to bring a touch of who we are no our phones!!!!
I was about to buy a Nokia 820 and I am so glad I checked this forum. This is such a basic flaw..... I guess it will have to be a Galaxy 111
I like my Nolkia 820 but come on! Why can't I change my alert,im and sms tones I want and not just the ones on the phone.
How such a basic feature is not available is honestly beyond me...
Oh, and calendar notification is a joke at the moment. That's why I have to use alarm clock for notifications.
Come on Nokia & Microsoft! It's 2013, not 1990's...
Microsoft better include this on the set of the "Blue Update". Otherwise they're done for. Such a basic feature...
over 27,000 votes for something that is so ridiculously simple, my dad has a tiny flip phone and can do this
This is the SINGLE biggest complaint I have with my #WP8 I need to customize my SMS alerts at night when I am on call and must WAKE UP if I get a page from my monitoring system. None of the built-in tones are capable of WAKING my up from my sleep :(

Just used my last 3 votes for this, it's been since Sep 28, 2011 and it is now Feb 9 , 2013 and 27,194 votes later with 1,175 comments...Let's see how much longer it takes for MS to freaking wake the F#%k up!!!
Just send Joe Belfiore a friends request on Facebook. I'm going to bring this to his attention, that's if he even accepts my invite. This is a shame that we have to ***** and complain for a function that was available on Windows Mobile and not on this more advanced OS that is Windows Phone.
Need this desperately
