Text Message custom ring?
Hey guys, I've been reading these forums for a while, ever since I got my 3G and you guys have helped immensely with some issues I've had. I just got my new 3G S and was wondering...is there anyway that I can make/add custom rings when I get a SMS/MMS message? I hate the options that the iphone comes loaded with!
Also, as an TAMU alumni, it's good to see some aggies on here too! ( I think)

Even through jailbreaking? (I know the 3G S jailbreak isn't out yet) Was it possible to do through the 3G via jailbreak though? I guess where I'm getting at is, if it was possible through jailbreak on the 3G I suppose it'll be when the 3G S JB comes out.
Also, anyone have a real good, step-by-step, accurate guide on how to jailbreak the Iphone?

but I only ask because I used to have these little "rings" for my SMS alerts on my old phone. one time i had the ESPN breaking news alert for SMS and recently before my 3GS on my LG Dare, I had some old school StarCraft game sounds for whenever I had an text message.

I was only teasing ya! I kid around with people on sports. On a huge Vols football fan and a HUUUUUUGE Tar Heel basketball fan.
And no, ringtones for chats and stuff like that just need to be a specific little "eep" or something. I have the Palm Pre ringtone on my iPhone right now. It actually sounds good.

I don't know about that, after updating to 3.0 I was going nuts waiting for the JB to come out, this phone is ten times better Jailbroken. JB on 3.0 is even better with things like copy and paste. Jailbreaking really unlocks the power of the iphone, it's a shame Apple has it so locked down.

I agree. I haven't noticed that jailbreaking has messed anything up. I get all my notifications just fine, no change to any of the original functionality of the phone. Just a lot of added features that I wouldn't want to do without now. It does slow the phone down slightly, though.
As for the topic, with the phone jailbroken you can even go into your file tree and find the sound files the iPhone uses for notifications. Find one you don't use ever, change the file name by one character, and then save your own custom sound file as the original name. Then just go to settings and select that sound option, and you have your own custom notification sound. It will still list the sound as whatever it does normally in settings, but the sound itself will be your new one. Without knowing anything about programming, that's the easiest way I can think of to do it.

A&M all the way! just applied this year, so hopefully ill know for sure if im going by the end of the first semester this year...
I wish apple would do something about this, the only two sounds that you can actually personalize are ringtones and sms, and weve had the same sounds since the original iphone...this is an easy fix for them to idk why they havent done it yet

I'm new to IPhone but once I was directed in the right direction jailbreaking was EASY. I'm on a PC, not sure if there are any file differences on a Mac but run redsn0w if using Windows:
1. Go to Apps Data file
3. Apple Computer
5. iPhone Software Update 6. Highlite "IPSW"
