Re: unable to change the message alert tone

You must have the firmware on the phone reflash, so take the phone to a mobile center and have it reflash onto the phone.

Message alert tone for cect sciphone i68

If you have version 3 software there is no way that you can use mp3 or downloaded tones as message tones, best thing you can do is upgrade your firmware to version 4. Type this on the dial screen to check your version *#8375#

There are supposed to be 64 ringtones on my sgh

if you had downloaded them then they could be in the music or sounds folder of 'my files'.

if not, the sgh G600 actually comes with much less ringtones
[providers of the phone often provide conflicting information as to the phone's spec.]

there are a few if you go into:

Phone Settings;
Phone Profiles;

Then on 'Incoming Calls' scroll down to 'Voice Call ringtone' and select it.
In this section there are 10 ringtones.

If you want to change message tones:

Phone Profiles;
scroll to the right so you are in the 'New Messages' tab.

To change the alert tone, scroll down to 'Message alert tone' and select. Here there are only a few message tones.

hopefully that solved the issue.

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.

I would like to change text message ring tone but can only find how to change ringtone and not for text messages

I found the answer!! Go to Menu>Settings>Profiles, then go to Options>Edit. Push the right side of the square (that you use to navigate the menus) so that you're working with New Messages, not Incoming Call. Go down to Message Alert Tone, then go to Options>Change>Use Effect Tone. If you were trying to use an .mmf that you downloaded, or any of the preloaded ones that can be used as incoming call ringtones, you'd go to Use My Alert Tone here. There are 4 tones under Use Effect Tone, and you can play them and choose one, just like you do to play and choose your ringtone.

Set a ringtone for a text message SYNC SGH-A707

"My Effect Tones" can only be MMF files. Ringtones can be WAV, MMF, MP3, etc... as long as the file is under 300kb I think. You need to convert your ring tones to MMF to use them as "Text Tones"

Changing Text Message Tone

it's because the text alerts and alarms etc. all require a different file format than what the presets are...notice the preset tones already on the phone are ".mmf?" well most downloaded/bluetoothed/purchased ringtones are mp3s, not mmfs. i have the same phone..and i am fed up with this stupid problem. i don't know how to convert the file type..sooo i guess we're stuck at stupid.

i hate you.
