    Is there a way to change text or SMS tones to make them louder and longer, like a ring tone. Why not give the user the option?

    I work as a Battalion Chief of a fire department. When my department has an emergency they use text messaging to notify the off duty guys of a problem so we can respond back to the station. I miss the night time calls because the quick quiet chirps and dings are not enough to wake me up.

    Is there a way to do this without jailbreaking the phone??

    There's not a way, but tons of people want this. Submit feedback to apple on it. Maybe one day they'll add it.

    Sucks but you cant without a JB.
    I dont know how hard it would be for apple to implement this:rolleyes:
    Just like selecting custom ringtones why not be able to choose custom text tones?
