    Could someone tell me what file type and length works best as a text tone, and how I can go about getting it onto and functioning a jailbroken iphone 4? Thanks!

    There certainly may be, and don't call me surely.

    :confused: If that's too difficult for you, then don't make text tones. The steps aren't that radically different from making a ring tone.

    You don't have to use SSH to copy the file into your phone; I use iphone explorer to copy the file.
    However, you do have to have some way of converting the sound file into aiff; there's no getting around that.

    So why didn't you search before you asked?

    I use Unlimitones. Its fairly annoying. Its an interface to Audiko so there are tons of SMS in there and its easy to change them.

    biteSMS let's you assign individual (ring)tones to individual contacts. Make your own or use dl'd ones or use ringtones. You can also use ToneFXs to assign all sorts of alert (including text) tones.

    In the upper right hand corner of this page, there is a search field and the button "search forums". I promise it won't bite you too much.

    Not that it has anything to do with this subject, but I'm getting a little aggravated by lazy people who don't bother to search before asking or do stupid things like install pirate apps and wonder why their jb went bad. For some reason, all the dumb people came out this week.

    4.2.1 allows individual text tones to each contact. No hack needed.

    That would explain the recent spate of idiots asking why they only have one working speaker. :rolleyes:

    Gaaccckkk! Apple tones. I'm talking about custom tones. Each of my assigned contacts says, "I have a text from <their name>" Or you can use a ringtone, or whatever. Not a beep or a boop or a ting or a ....
