Text Message Ring Tones

I recently upgraded from the Blackberry Tour to the HTC Evo Shift. Is there any way to reset the text ringtone. The beep is annoying. I just want to change it.

Open your Messages app, press the menu button and tap Settings > Notification Sound. Then just select the sound you like. You can also find a lot of different apps available for download from the market app.

Yes Donalien is correct, you can change to a generic tone in the phone by using the settings she recommended. If you have music on the phone that you have already trimmed as a ringtone, you can connect your phone to a personal computer and mount is as a disk drive. If you have personal songs that you want to be text message tones, you can put those into the media>audio>notifications folder and then you will be able to use your own personal songs and text message notificaitons as well. I hope this helps!

Download them to your PC, Plug your phone in, Create 3 folders - Ringtones - Notifications - Alarms, Drag/Drop the sound file into the folder you wish them to be associated with.

Do any of you know if or how specific ringtones can be applied for people who text. I have had this phone or months and haven't seen a way to do that yet.

Sounds like something you'd find in an app. It's not a feature of Android itself, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was an app that could do it.

Jennifer, what phone do you have ?? I have the EVO 4G and I use seperate text tones along with seperate ring tones for many of my contacts. One of my ring tones is set when my girlfriend calls, it starts off with loud clashes and says warning, warning, warning (each time voice get louder) girlfriend is calling...  lol... You can set a seperate ring tome for nearly every option in your people phone book.. If you have your friends, workers, family, etc listed in groups, you can have a default ring tone for that group. If a family member calls, you hear the ring tone you can answer it, if your napping and hear the ring tone assigned to work, then without looking at it, let it go to voice mail.. Have fun and good luck.. BTW, the manual is very clear on assigning the different tones, etc..
