I would like to get separate notification tones for email vs. text vs. alarms on my LG Revolution.  It's annoying to get the same tone for everything.

You can change the notification tone for most of those applications.

Open the text message app, press menu and then settings. You can change the notification tone in there.

The alarm should be similar. Open the clock application and go to the alarm clock section. See if you can change the tone there or press menu to see if there are more options.

Gmail and Google Talk can also be changed to something different.

In your SD card, create the following folder structure where you can copy paste your custom ringtones into the different folders. The top level of the SD card will be the SDcard drive.

SDcard drive:/audio/media/ringtones
SDcard drive:/audio/media/notifications
SDcard drive:/audio/media/alarms

You would put your custom ringtones in the ringtones folder and the text message and email notification tones in the notifications folder. Once the files are in there and the phone rescans (might require a reboot) the SD card, the custom files with be available in the selection lists.
