I am trying to set a custom ringtone as my message alert but its only giving me the default tones to choose from. What gives?
Follow the link below.. It's the easiest way to do that..
In this case try going to Menu——Options——Ringtone--Select phone ringtone(open the ringtone list to choose the ringtone)/Select from music(open the music directory to choose the ringtone ).
That's the same problem I had with my Samsung Android phone. I just downloaded GO SMS Pro from Google Play. With the app, you can use custom ringtones for your incoming text messages. You can even assign a different tone for each contact.
