    hello, i have a iphone and everything works great.
    my ques. is about iCal on iphone.

    is there a way to change the alert sound for events on ical.
    the default alert sound is a BEEP or something, and easily unhearable,
    is there a way to use a ringtone or something like it for the alert sound.

    you can't even hear the stupid beep.

    thanks in advance

    I figured it out, well someone else did, i just followed the directions.

    if anyone else wants to know how to change the calendar alert sound. follow this.

    1. get the file you want or whatever .mp3
    2. export as an .aiff from quicktime
    3. rename the file from "name.aiff" to "alarm.caf"
    4. new file should be exactly alarm.caf
    5.ssh into iphone, go to system,library,audio,UIsounds
    6. backup original "alarm.caf" from the UISounds folder just in case
    7. replace the file from with your own,
    8.REBOOT your iphone, and it should work

    let me know what happens, it worked on my first try thought, good luck
