Hi guys I have a g2x by LG on T mobile currently running Android 2.3. On the stock messaging app I can only chose from there crappy ringtone selection and can't do it custom. If I download another app like GO SMS I can have custom ringtones. Anyways wondering IF there is anyway tog et around this without having a different app? ( Other apps it takes longer to get picture messages)

@home

menu button>settings

there should be an audio settings area

under this there should be a place to change phonewide notification sounds. this affects received emails and sms

--

i cannot give better specifics since i'm rooted running miui....and the menu system is drastically different .

Yeah that doesn't let me set my music as a Notification. Only my ringtone. Trying to make my notification sound custom not one of the pre selected ones.

you forgot to transfer your mp3 files to the correct folder.

tether your phone to the computer or use an app to move files to:

F:\Media\Notifications, where F:\ is the internal storage of your phone.

the media folder is also where ringtones, alarms and recordings are stored.
