Out of 15 tones, there is maybe one that is actually usable as a text tone. They're all too loud and annoying. It's crazy that after 3.5 years, we're still basically stuck with tri-tone (without jailbreaking) because it's the only one that's bearable. Love my iphone, but GD things like this make me wonder if someone at Apple is just screwing with us
Here's an idea apple, any app that has custom tones for notifications should be included in this list. When JB'n, I steal tones from other apps for custom SMS and Mail tones. Boxcar has some cool tones.
Again, these are horrible. More than a reason to JB.
My god. Those were awful. I really hope jobs tells us what silly reason he won't let us have custom SMS tones. You KNOW he's the one preventing custom SMS tones. You would think he would get p*ssed hearing Tritone all day at the apple campus. I know I get sick of hearing it at MY campus.
After listening to a few of those new ones, im not going to lie, im kind of excited to use a couple of them atleast...many of them are far too long to be SMS/MMS notifications though, more like ringtones.
As bad as those are, I am still waiting for Apple to catch up with my old BlackBerry in the customizable sms tones on a "per contact" basis. I need it because I also use my iPhone as my work pager, and don't want the "pager" tone to be the same as a SMS/MMS text tone...
Why is Apple being so stubborn on this (lack of) feature? Steve, are you listening?
Really the SMS tones is one of the reasons I JB. With all the iPhones around every time you hear Tri-Tone you get at least 10 people checking their phones. Plus after listening to all the new ones they are ALL too long. An SMS tone should be at MOST 2 seconds.
