    Okay I want custom SMS tones. I know how to do it for the regular iphone tones and it has worked, but i use TextNow for my texts cause im not giving ATT another 30 a month for something that should be included with the data plan. When I change for example the tri tone on the iphone it changes the sound, but does not effect the tritone in TextNow, it has to be a separate file. Any idea where I might find the location of the TextNow tones or another forum to ask?



    If anyone has textnow and would like to know where I found them just ask, other wise mods can close this if they want

    Don't need it, too easy to just change the .caf files via SSH.

    SSH into your phone

    Click on
    USER-> Applications (now you'll see a bunch of folders with numbers and letters in it; it may be different depending on your iphone, but my textnow folder is) -> BC854AB6 (and a lot more in the folder name, but thats how my folder starts; if you click on the right one you should see a folders like "UnlimitedSMS.app") -> UnlimitedSMS.app

    You may have to trial and error if folders are different based on iphone

    Once you click on unlimitedSMS you'll see a bunch of .caf files, those are your audio tunes there...to change those, if you are not sure look it up on google/youtube.

    Hope this helps finding it, if you need anymore help finding them let me know.

    Also for some reason all my textnow ringtones were not listed in this folder, oh well.
