    So I have a jailbroken iPhone and I was wondering if I could change the text message tone. If anyone has ever seen the movie Eurotrip, in the begin of the mail, when one of the guys gets an email it goes "Mail Motherfu*ker!" and I think it would be great to have as mine. On SSH, could I locate the file, and replace it with the same format file under the same name? As for the file, could I send someone the file and have them convert it if I can not. Thanks.

    I would like to know how to do this as-well. I couldn't think of anything worse than have that eurotrip message but I would like to change the tone.

    all you have to do is find the sound file you want to replace the default one with and rename it to the name "new-mail.caf" or whichever file it is youre replacing

    cd /System/Library/Audio/UISounds
    /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/new-mail.caf
    /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/sms-received.caf
    /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/alarm.caf

    the file can be mp3 or wav

    yes for sure! jailbreaking will not make you change networks, it will keep what you've got before you jailbroke it.:)
