My sidekick lx text alert tone does not work. the sidekick does not vibrate or make a sound when i receive a text.

This most likely has to do with the sound profile that you currently have set. Go into the sound options, see if there is a detailed option available to increase/decrease the ring volume or vibration.

Some phones have the option to turn on an alert and vibration for text/incoming call.s

How can i change my text message tone on my samsung f480 thaks

Please Follow these steps to change
  1. From the standby screen, press Menu.
  2. In the main Menu, press Settings.
  3. In the Settings menu, select Phone profiles and press.
  4. You will be presented with a list of phone profiles for different situations and environments. The one you're currently using will be ticked. Highlight the one you want to use and press the Edit button at the bottom of the display.
  5. You are taken into the profile settings. At the top of the list you'll notice three tab icons - these represent (from left to right), ringtone, message alert, and keypad sounds. You can switch between settings for these by tapping one of the tabs.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Press the Sounds option (Figure 16). 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.

Setting ringtones as you text message alert tones

You CAN set a song as your text alert tone. Here are the steps:
1- Go to: Settings> Profiles>
2- Select your options (e.g. normal, vibrate and ring, etc....)
3- select Options> Customize (2)>
4- Highlight "Message Sound" and select Options> Customize (2),
5- Then browse to the folder your song or sound is in (e.g. audio) and select the file you want to use and save it.

I noticed that the songs have to be under 30 seconds to use as any type of alert tone for calls or texts.

Hopefully this helps.
