email and text messae notifications

I purchase a ringtone.  It only shows up in the ringtones for the phone.  I would like to use it for email and text notification. How do I set it up?

Re: email and text messae notifications

Go into your applications

Click on My Files

Go into Media

Go into Audio

Go into Ringtones

Find the Ringtone you want to use as a text message indicator

Long Press on the Ringtone and select Copy or Move, depending on what you want

It will take you back to your folders

Click back on media, then audio, then notifcations

Paste the ringtone into notifications.


I don't know if this works for email messages, but it will work for text messages.
