    Those are pretty bad. Maybe they're so long because it's the Beta and will be shortened at the general release?

    In addition to customized SMS tones, I wish we could set different tones for push notifications in different applications. I usually pick my phone up every time I get a push, but it would be nice to know if it is an email or a Facebook post, probably wouldn't pick it up for every single Facebook notification! LOL!

    Personally, I use Chime as my SMS tone because everyone else in the universe uses tritone! My hubby says that another angel got it's wings every time it goes off, but I kinda like it!

    I currently use glass as my text tone. I can't imagine using any of those new tones as they are WAY too long.

    Granted, it is annoying when I hear my text alert go off, and 9 people around me all go for their iphones, but, I mean, it's just a friggin tone. After a while I just keep it on vibrate, is this really a huge issue? Some of you seem so worked up over silly little notification sounds, and I get it, you want customization, but still.....also, i believe theres apps on the market place that allow you to change you email alert tones, if thats of interest to you....

    1.Edit an mp3 file. Make it as short as possible, approx 1-3 secs. Save the file as an .aif file
    2.Right click and rename it to one of the following:

    sms-received1.caf
    sms-received2.caf
    sms-received3.caf
    sms-received4.caf
    sms-received5.caf
    sms-received6.caf

    3.SSH into your iPhone. Goto directory:

    root/system/library/audio/uisounds

    4.If you want to keep the default sounds edit the file extension that is the same name as the sound you created on your computer from .caf to a .bak file!
    5.Copy the .caf file from your saved location into this iPhone uisounds directory


    Thats it. Goto the tones and pick the number of the tone you changed (In order top down 1-6)

    It's obviously not a deal breaker for any of us but it's just...weird. I could set up my 5 year old Samsung dumb phone so that I could tell who was calling or texting without even having to take the phone out of my pocket. I get a lot of texts and emails throughout the day and that little bit of customization would be nice. Apple created a revolutionary phone that spurred innovation in the industry but they have never given a good reason why something so easy isn't included in the phone. So 3.5 years go by and they finally give us more "options" and completely get it wrong. Like I said....it's just weird that they do so many things right and get the simplest things wrong.

    exactly!

    Create and Install Custom SMS Tones on iPhone

    here is where i get most of my tones [Free ringtones, themes, wallpapers, games. Millions of downloads for your mobile phone | Zedge ]

    then edit with [http://audacity.sourceforge.net/] if needed ( 2-3 seconds is good)

    you can use any format as long as you convert it

    yeah, but when you jailbreak, as you already know, you can change any tone

    i too use vibrate a lot, especially at work

    and touchy, i remember a while back when you were Pro JB, has that changed?

    SSH can be complicated for some people. I use iFile to navigate to other apps on the device (cant remember the exact location of the applications folder), copy tones from that location, then rename them to SMS tone I don't use. You can do the same and change your mail tone.

    Boxcar has some of the best tones for this scenario.

    Just find a write up on how to change the tones to get the locations.

    This makes me wanna jailbreak tonight. I hate my phone sounding like the 30 other iPhones in my office. Someone gets an email, and 5 ppl grab their phone. I have faith in Apple, they can do better.

    Hey! Absolutely not I am PRO JB, all the way! Never will not be, but since these were stock tones we were discussing, I figured I'd keep my comments just on stock tones....I'm PRO JB all the way, lol, in fact posted while tehtered via MyWi

    I would use Glass, but I can't stand that it goes twice. That just bugs the **** out of me. If it went once, I would definitely use it. But as it stands Tri-tone is the only one I find tolerable.

    I was just thinking the same thing. I'm sure for most of us, it's not entirely uncommon to have two to five text messages roll in back to back. That would be enough to drive me batty.

    Jesus those are some horrid tones.

    Great topic! These sounds are so bad, they must be a cruel joke. And no way to add a custom? Jailbreaking makes more and more sense due to this kind of baffling sadism.
