Unable to use mp3 message tone

I want to set my message alert tone as an mp3 ringtone, but i cannot find an option for this. Instead i have the option of about six pre loaded message alert tones, all of which are rubbish! I was just wondering if there is any software i could download that would enable me to use an mp3 ringtone istead?

Sadly this phone does not support this option I'm afraid it only supports downloaded ring tones, this i have been told by Sony, sadly the salesperson told me i could chose my own message tones on this phone, she lied.

How can i change my message tone on my samsung f480 from the standard tones set on the phone


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 . You can change the Message alert type, if you want to, by tapping the panel and choosing the appropriate option.
To change the Message alert tone, press the Message alert tone panel .
In the menu that appears, press Change.
Then choose one of the options Use effect tone (one of Samsung's pre-loaded effects) or Use my alert tone (allowing you to choose from your own sounds) .
In this example, press Use my alert tone.
Press the Sounds option. 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

On the LG VU CU920, how do you set ringtones as message alerts?


After going through the manual and talking to an AT&T rep, I found that it is not possible to set your own ringtone as a message alert tone. You can only use your own ringtones for calls and ringer ID's. We're stuck with the 10 pre-loaded rings for the message alerts. :(
