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...
You should be able to have custom tones for SMS messages. At least one slot to have a custom tone. You should really be able to customize each contacts SMS Message tone. I mean, if not smartphones can do it, I'm really shocked my smart phone can't.
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!
I have a Lumia running 8.1 denim. The choice of sounds for calendar reminders is hopeless! They are all quiet and way too brief ! My old Nokia brick went on pinging until I silenced it. It would work better if we could access the full range of ringtones for reminders as we can for alarms. Please?
I guess this is the wrong site for such a complaint, You should rather contact microsofts Support (or which ever OEM's support you device is from).

I miss almost every text message since I can't (nor can ATT) figure out how to make the phone provide an audible sound on a text message. This is enough of a problem that I will have to change phones if there is no resolution.
When I got my Nokia I was able to change my ring tone for txt msg to anything I wanted and so i changed it to pikachu talking but when my phone updated I lost that feature and so I'm stuck with pikachu and I really annoyed with it. I know if I reset my phone to factory mode that will fix the problem but then I will lose everything
Please let windows phones like Lumia have custom or at least different tones for SMS,mms, etc. I hate the original tone.
8.1 had these built in already :) Settings > Notifications + actions.
I don't know about most people, but texting in my life, is happening far more frequently then calls. Customizing ringtones is fun and cool but no one is calling me enough to justify them. Which leads me to text tones being a thing for the Windows phones. Why is this not already a thing? When I had an Android it was immensely easier to download short fun tones for texts. I even had an app that allowed me to splice any music file I wanted to any size I wanted to make any length of tone I desired...makes me miss my Android to be honest. It's all about choice, I hate being forced to use default tones when I know there is so much more out there. Please consider expanding on this topic, we Windows Phones users would be forever grateful.
Windows Phone will only allow ringtones up to 30 seconds. That's why you will probably have to convert the songs on your SD-card. There are plenty of apps on the store which will do that for you.
In my Lumia 630 Windows Phone,
I am unable to change the ring tone by using one of the ring tones stored in my Memory Card and Phone. The default list of ring tones alone is displayed. Where is the provision for "Custom" to change the ring tone in this model?
PLEASE ALLOW US TO CUSTOMIZE TEXT ALERTS!!! SUCH a pain not being able to...my daughter and I have the same phone and it is SO irritating not being able to customize!!
Are you all freakin' ********!!!!! WE CAN DO THIS NOW!!!! IDK WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PHONES BUT I KNOW I CAN DO THIS ****!!!!
Yea we should have all costum ringtones like most phones
You can change your notification sounds in WP 8.1 ...
come on...... I thought that windows 8 was supposed to be an improvement. I need a special alert tone.....a siren to notify me that there is a rescue via SARCALL
need custom text/ sms tones that we like and longer in time
Can we customise all our alert sounds please
please please fix this. Lumia cannot make custom alerts

Oknbso heres the thing, I had to hard reset my phone the other day, before that I could add custom sounds to Whatsapp with no problems.
However now I've restored with all the updates I no longer have that option!
Why on earth are MS going backwards!
Why isnt this a feature in Windows phone 7.8? It seems like microsoft has no suport at all for their customers regarding to old hardware.
