Set Ringtones as Notifications on the LG Optimus S

With the LG Optimus S, to use downloaded ringtones as notifications, the ringtones must first be saved to a Notifications folder on the SD card. Once in the folder on the SD card, the ringtones can then be set for specific notifications, within each desired application.

Note: The Notifications folder can be created as a new folder directly in the root directory of the SD card; it does not need to be inside any other folder.

To create the Notifications folder:

  • 1.    Connect the USB cable from the handset to the computer. On the handset, tap Turn on USB storage.
    Note: If no prompt appears, tap and drag down the notifications bar and tap USB connected.
  • 2.    Read the message and tap OK.
  • 3.    On the computer, if an AutoPlay window appears, select Open folder to view folders.
  • 4.    A windows will appear showing the contents of the MicroSD card installed on the handset. Click on Make a new folder.
  • 5.    Click on the new folder and rename it Notifications.
  • 6.    Drag and drop the desired ringtones into the Notifications folder.
  • 7.    Once the files are transferred, disconnect the USB cable.

To set ringtones for notifications:

  • 1.    From the desired application, press the Menu key.
  • 2.    Tap Settings.
    Note: The steps may vary slightly depending on the application. For Email, tap More and then tap Settings.
  • 3.    Tap Select ringtone.
  • 4.    Tap the desired ringtone.
