How can I use my own ringtones for sms, and anything other then phone calls?
No, iOS does not all you to use custom ringtones for messages and alerts. If you jailbreak it, I believe you can but without JBing you cannot
In order to do what you want, OP, you are going to have to jailbreak.
You can use iphone explorer to change SMS tones; it gives you root access.
I suggest you back up your original tones.
FYI: SMS tones are aiff files with the .caf extension. You'll have to convert them if they're in mp3 format.
Are we talking JB or non-JB? Do you have a resource link? Thanks!
You still have to be jailbroken.
Yes, it requires jailbreaking your device. I really don't see Apple changing its stance on custom SMS tones until such a time as they overhaul the entire notification system on the phone. Until that time you'll either have to use Tri-Tone (the new sounds are totally unusable) or jailbreak your device.
Wow I didn't know that.. Apple is really restrictive on what we are allowed to do as far as customizing out phone.
Tri-tone isn't the only sound. I use Bell and my wife uses Glass on her iPhone. Agree that the new ones totally stink.
Agreed, Apple is a little over the top in that regard.
