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.

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.

I don't know about your phone, but I am able to pick a completely customised sound for may different email addresses ...
Are you on Windows Phone 7 or 8?
How can you have marked this completed when it's only half implemented? You still haven't addressed anything with custom Email notifications. Like I've said in previous posts, my Blackberry had this capability 10 years ago. Is this ever going to be done for Windows phone? I've had this Windows phone for almost two years now and still no answer for this. My contract is almost up, when it is, this POS phone is going in the trash. I'm getting an iPhone, which has this ability. Good grief Microsoft get a friggin clue.
How soon is the new update going to be available for download for my Nokia Lumia 928?
@Chefdean1964 your in for a treat on the WP 8.1 update 1. (I'm rocking the dev preview) in this update Microsoft gave people the ability to select a whole message or messages if you want so you can copy and paste them or forward a new message. If you'd like I can send a screenshot of this if it pleases you
There are some great apps for making custom ringtones. Try both Nokia and Windows app searches as many folk don't even know they are separate.
I just want be able to select ALL text copy and paste in a fricken word document, or a txt message that I can't forward, or cat message or be able to attach a document to a txt message because I can't select all, copy and paste without it taking forever to select a long message a line at a time to manually do it like I have to now. Not to mention deleting the period every time I type the "I" in a message because it thinks it is the end if a sentence or something, like there are sooo many conversations I finish with the letter I. Lmao except for the last one that surprisingly did not leave a period. LOL
Yep, I'm on WP 7. It's too bad. Nokia could do better. Do not surprised it failed everything...
@anonymous are you on Windows phone 7 if so then yah... Microsoft already said they stopped full support for those users last year.
If your on WP 8 then no. You just need a phone running WP 8.0.x (gdr3) or higher. (I don't know what everyone in this forum had said tho because I heard them say they had this feature and lost it but I sure haven't.)
are you kidding me? so, to have a custom voice for he sms I have to buy a new phone????
