Set a ringtone for a text message SYNC SGH-A707

I got the SYNC for christmas of 2006 and still can't set a purchased ringtone for a text message. the phone gives you the choice:
1. Use Effect Tone
2. Use My Effect Tone
the effect tones are the ones preloaded by the manufacturer
my effect tones are supposed to be the ringtones you put on yourself. i have over 10 ringtones and none of them show up as a choice.
what am i doing wrong?
or do i have a defective phone?
my ringtones aren't coming up as an option when i try to set it for a message. i go to normal under profile then to edit, over to message alert tone, change,and use my alert tone and my ringtones aren't showing up in my audio,what am i doing wrong?

    My problem is the same but my phone is a SGH-A412. I would like to use the gummi bear as a msg tone. I had it sent via bluetooth and it does not show when going to videos but when I just go into videos it is there and I can play it.

"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.
