Does anyone know how to use my own wav as a message tone.
I've got it to work for ringtones by tapping and holding on the wav then selecting "use as ring tone" but there is no such option of the message tone.
The only way to add a wav of your own is by going into Start > Programs > File Explorer > click on 'my device' then the 'windows' folder cut and paste your wav file in this folder directly. This works as I've just had the same problem.

For Nofications Tones :-
SDCARD/ MEDIA/ AUDIO/ NOTIFICATIONS
You can do this one of two ways. Either you can set a universal "Notification Tone" for your phone with the desired song, or you can set a specific notification tone for your particular messaging app.
To set a universal tone (which will play when messages arrive, and for calendar events and other "notification" type events), do this: - Go to your App Drawer and tap Settings - Tap "Sound" - Tap "Notification Ringtone" and select the song you want. If the song doesn't appear in your list, download RingDroid and use it to save the tone as a Notification tone. Basically, you'll just open the sound in RingDroid, tap the menu key and then save it as a notification tone.
If you only want the sound for a particular app, like the default messaging app, you'll need to open that app, tap the menu key, access the Settings menu and look for something like "Notification settings." In the default messaging app, the option is at the bottom of the Settings screen, and you tap "Select ringtone" to choose the sound you want to play when a message arrives.
The msg alert tone depends on the current sound profile of your phone (like normal, silent, driving etc). 1. Go to main menu -> settings -> phone profiles. You should find all the profiles available in the phone. For example, we will change the msg alert tone for 'normal'. 2. Tap on the box with the double arrow (>>) symbol next to normal. You should enter a screen saying call alert type, voice call ringtone etc. 3. There is a drop down menu at the top right side of the screen. Tap that and select 'new messages'. 4. 'message alert type' should be melody or vibration & melody, depending on your preference. 5. now select 'message alert tone'. The phone has a number of tones already stored. Select one of these. 6. Or select 'sounds' at bottom right and browse to any file you want to set as message alert tone instead.. 7. Save and exit !!

Instead of changing the ringtone settings, tap the message alert tab (in the top centre of the display). A set of message alert settings appears .

In a similar way as changing ringtones (above) you now have the choice of choosing from your Music files, Ringtones that are loaded onto the phone, or My voice clips . In our example, we'll again choose a file from our Music folder. Press the Music option. A list of suitable MP3 tracks appears. Tap the one you want in order to highlight it. Press Options, then tap on the Select menu option to install it as your message alert . You are now taken back to the Normal profile settings, where the Message alert tone has changed . To save this change, press Options and then Save . Alternatively, press Back and you will be asked whether you want to Save? Press Yes
