    IS there one?...the standard tones given are frankly pathetic...why hasn't this been addressed by a software update?

    I don't want to jail break my phone, I will end up breaking it and god knows what happens when you connect to iTunes and recieve updates of the OS to a jailbroken phone.

    You would have thought the Apple iTunes store may have made a money spinner of alternative text tones.

    I don't care about the new phone and 'multi-tasking', if I do more than one thing at a time I just get confused anyway but if the new iPhone doesn't address text tone this issue I may not buy it.

    I'm sure there is no technical reason for it, a simple yes or no choice I presume.

    You really wouldn't buy an iPhone again due to a no text sound customization feature?

    That's something that really frustrates me as well, especially as it is something so simple, but it definitely isn't a deal breaker!

    With all the clever people out there jailbreaking this and developing SDK that with their clever apps....but nobody can add a text tone to an unjailbroken iPhone.

    Amazing.

    I agree that the text tones mandated by Apple thus far are pretty much a joke.

    Can anybody really take you seriously after they hear you get a text with "Horn" as your tone?

    When I jailbroke I used the Android sounds for my notifications. They're not as jarring and much better in general. Hopefully Apple adds a similar option a la ringtones, just aggregates the two in iTunes to "Ringtones & Notifications".
