We lg users got dooped on a stock pile of crapy phones smash it and turn it in to insurence and ask more questions before you buy another phone

**** :(((((((

Posted on Nov 03, 2008

The solution is that lg has to release an upgraded software for the phones, because without that your not allowed to change the message tones to any mp3 or recorded data

You can just rename the files after installing something and renaming the files.. you should find something somewhere on google, i dont really remember

Voicemail alert tones

I think that there is just a generic message alert tone setting applies for both vm and text. If your voicemail alert tone and message alert tones are the same, this is probably the case. I have searched the menu on my phone and haven't found any setting to change vm tone specifically.
