There isn't a icon for it. To change the tones, I started WiFi, found my IP address of my local LAN, opened sftp, typed in the IP address, user: root password: alpine
Then went to the /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/ and backed up everything that was in there to my local computer and copied over the new-mail.caf file I had created as well as the sms-recieved6.caf, (the sms one might be named wrong here since i did it at home last night and don't remember the name)
Then I rebooted and everything worked the way I wanted. The SMS sounds will always look the same but since I didn't like the last one listed on the phone, I used the last one that had 6 next to it. It worked out great for me.

That's a good starting point.
Ok, no problem.
-First, you find the audio file that you want to be as your new TXT notifier, try to find it as any of the following file formats:
wav, mp3, aiff, m4a
-Then, load it into iTunes. Click on Edit > Preferences > Import Settings > Advanced, and set the conversion encoder to AIFF.
-Go back into your library inside iTunes, locate the file you just added, right click on the sound file you imported, and select "Convert to AIFF".
-Let it convert.
-Once it's done, right-click the file, and go to info. Follow the path to that file, and then simply rename it to *.caf.
-Open up iPhone Browser.
-Click on Goto Location > UISounds on the top bar.
-Locate the files named "sms-received1.caf", "sms-received2.caf", "sms-received3.caf", "sms-received4.caf", "sms-received5.caf", "sms-received6.caf". Decide which one you don't like, and delete it.
-Lets use the first one, "sms-received1.caf" as an example. Delete that ba$tard from the original directory.
-RENAME your NEW ringtone to "sms-received1.caf", and drag it into that iPhone Browser directory.
-Go to your iPhone, select "Tri-tone" as your message, and that will be your new SMS/TXT/MMS Ringtone.
Voila, thats all it is. it sounds like a lot of steps, but once you do it once or twice, its really second nature.
Hi, I have managed to change the song I want to .caf but after that, I'm lost. Can anyone help? Thanks : )
hey i had a question. I know how to changed the smstone and all, but how about this. The smstone i implemented is about 30 seconds. once i open the message the tone plays in its entirety which is kind of annoying. Anyone know of a way besides shortening the file of making it so it turns off when the message is opened?
