    you are correct, you can't do that (unless you possibly jailbreak)... SMS and emails only get a few sound choices.

    If you did it once, surely you know where to start? :rolleyes:

    Try QuickPwn or something

    What about 3.0?

    I have been searching threads to see if this is possible on the new 3.0 OS (customize sms ringtones). Can anyone with 3.0 beta let us know if this is possible?

    Dang, I was hoping that would be one of the new 100+ features. I don't get why Apple would limit it.
