How do you change ring tone for a text message on a blackberry tour 9630

Go to the sounds icon in the upper left corner of your main Home screen (the one that looks like a speaker with sound coming out of it). Scroll down the list that appears and select Set Ring Tones/Alerts. Click Messages, then SMS Text. Select the ring tone and volume that you want for text messages, as well as any other options (like vibrate) and then exit out and save your changes.

The text message sound alerts on my Glyde phone arent working

Nokia phones call them "profiles" , a set of preset modes where you can have different volume levels and tones for different occasions i.e General, meeting, loud, silent etc. I was suggesting trying a different preset mode If available to see if it worked for you.

SMS alert not working

Check the ff:
-You might have turned your "message alert" off or your phones "volume" off or silent.
-"Vibration" alert is off

Try this:
-Turn the "vibration" on or activate.
-Be sure the phone "volume" is not zero, empty or off.

Notify me if it doesn't work, if it did pls rate this solution...tnx

Nokia 6600 no new message received display

HI Qrasengan,
1) Open the menu, and go to profiles.
2) Enter the general option, and click on personalise.
3) after that, several option appears.
4) some of them are ringing tone, ringing type, ringing volume, message alert tone, vibrating alert, etc.
5) Go to message alert tone and change the tone u want to listen when message is received.
NOte :Only wav or midi formats are accepted as ringing tone. MP3s are not accepted as ringing tones in NOKIA 6600. U need to install a software "mp3 as ringing tone" or "mp2wmaogg.codec" to make mp3 as ringing tone.
If u want that software, send me feedback or reply.
And I will deliver u as email in ur email id.
