Custom Ringer for TEXT MSG - LG Optimus

I can't find anywhere how to load a custom ringtone for a Text Msg for my LG Optimus. I have successfully loaded one for my phone ringtone but that's not what I want, I want to use it as my text message ringer. I always use a classic phone ringer for my phone and a song for my text messages and I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it with this phone! I even broke down and read the instruction manual, and I don't think I've ever done that with any phone before, ever. If anyone can tell me what I'm missing, I'd certainly be grateful. With all the neat tricks this phone has, there has to be a way to do this.

Thanks for taking the time to read!

You cant with the default sms/mms app. With chomp or handcent u can set ringers and tons of settings you cant with the standerd app. I use handcent.

Well bless your heart, it worked! Thanks!! I can't believe there's no way to do it on the phone, but I installed handcent and I've got my ringtone just like I wanted it. I'm glad to know I wasn't too stupid to figure it out on the phone myself!

Thanks again.

Plug your phone into your PC and create 3 folders on it - ringtones - notifications - alarms. Drag/Drop your sound files into the folder you want them associated with(text uses the notifications sound files)

Here are the most popular free sites to get/create ringtones from.

Create a new folder on your MicroSD card named "Notifications" and drop your sounds in it...  Sounds that are in this folder will only show up when you are selecting Notification tones...  If you create a folder for "Ringtones" the same thing will be true wor Ringtones...  You can also do one for "Alarms"  I have all three of these folders and have my tones all seperated to I don't have to look through a long list of all tones...

Re: Custom Ringer for TEXT MSG - LG Optimus

This is great and I was able to create the folders and move tones into them but the text notifications still don't work.  They are .wav files.  Am I doing something wrong?
