    You can set iPhone to play a sound whenever you:
    ÂÂ Get a call
    ÂÂ Get a text message
    ÂÂ Get a voicemail message
    ÂÂ Get an email message
    ÂÂ Send an email message
     Have an appointment that you’ve set up to alert you
    ÂÂ Lock iPhone
    ÂÂ Type using the keyboard

    Taken from the iPhone manual I downloaded from Apple.com ;)

    yes but the problem is that apple will let you turn these on or off, but they will not let you change the sounds..

    Yes but the question is which sound it plays. I haven't seen where you can use custom sounds for any of these.

    It's completely possible...but only if you've jailbroken. Apple has kept the 6 SMS alerts hardcoded for some reason. You can't even add extra ones, you have to actually replace the old ones (the hackers may have fixed this by now). This could be a measure to keep people from having those annoyingly long song text alerts, something I could see Steve being testy about.
