Changing txt alerts

does anyone know how to change the alert sounds on the TP? I'm guessing it involves getting into the registry but i have no clue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OOOhhh.

You don't replace them, actually. If you have the ringers you want, they need to be in .wav format. All you do is place them in the \Windows folder of your device. Then go to the sounds menu, and they will appear in the list.

Re: Changing txt alerts

okay so i put wma files in the windows/ring folder, however they are not showing up. i was able to put one in there and it was actually a mp3 file, which is listed when i go to the txt msging alerts and settings. i can choose the default rings and the mp3 file and it plays, but none of the wma files that i have added play and even show up for that matter....any ideas?

Re: Changing txt alerts

It can be in mp3 form, just put anything you want as a ringer in the application data/sounds folder and it should show up for any notification you want.

Re: Changing txt alerts

Try moving those mp3 files to:
My Device/Application Data/ Sounds

You should be able to select those files as ringers afterwards in the Notifications menu.
