    I think that if apple are purposely keeping the ability to have custom alert tones locked then they should get over it and allow us to do what we want with
    our sounds...

    I mean what exactly is stopping them from allowing us to select a custom ringtone as our alerts???

    Who agrees with me?

    Hell the process for getting a ringtone is not exactly user friendly. The iPhone is a joke in this regard, but then again I have mine jailbroken so it is not a problem for me.

    I'd like custom SMS tones for my iPhone as well. I don't know why Apple is holding out on this other than there is just not a huge demand for it or they are trying to figure out a way to charge for it like the ring tones.

    On a side note, I think that cahrging for ring tones was a bit of a flop. I really don't think that people wanted to pay again for a song that they already owned just to make it their ring tone. Plus it limited you to only certain songs that you purchased in the iTunes music store which was a real drag.

    Post something to to get them to see people want it...

    Maybe one day they'll give it to us

    I just can't be bothered to jailbreak for this one thing but now we have 33% iphone's in our office its kinda getting annoying hearing everyone with tri-tone for incoming sms

    Not being able change tones for things like text and emails is one of the things I missed that I had when I was using a Blackberry. On the Blackberry you can assign different tones for text, mms, email. And if you had mulitple email accounts, you can set different tones for each email accounts. But that's not enough for me to go back to Blackberry. I don't miss all the constant reboots at all.
