Use the "Achievement Unlocked" sound for Text Messages!

Just thought it was cool to use the achievement unlocked sound for a text message alert on my WP8. The latest update GDR3 for WP8 has added custom alerts (WP already had custom ringtones). Now you can put whatever you want for alerts. Check the page below from Major Nelson for the achievement bleepo-bloop sound!

You need to hook you phone up to your computer via USB and then put the sound file in the ringtones folder. It will show up on your device then in the sound settings

Thanks for the heads up. I have a Nokia 625 and have added the file to my ringtone folder but I am unable to select it on my phone as a message tone. It is there under ringtones but that's all. Do I need to add it to a different folder for message tones or am I missing something else?

I've had the achievement sound on my 920 forever in hopes of doing just this. Now I just need to wait for AT&T to push out the update!

hi there. As mentioned in the OP, you need to have gdr3 (newest update) to have this feature. It hasn't released onany devices. Should.come to all eventually. Right now it is just on any Lumia 1520 and USA Lumia 1020s.

on the 625, you can add anything to ringtone folder, but it won't be available for alerts, just your call tones. Update will magically make.it.work for alerts

Ah no worries. Looks like I will just wait for the update to roll out. Thanks again.

Good news for those who want it but wouldn't it get old for you guys? I had it as my notification sound on AIM and it got on my nerves after a few days.

Yeah I had this set up on my last non windows phone and have been waiting for this update to set it up on my WP.

For those wondering it doesn't get old or annoying usually but it can be a bit confusing if you'er going for an achievement and you get a text message

Speaking of sounds, does anyone know anywhere to get other cool Xbox related sounds, that I could use for other alerts on my device. Things like maybe the ding from the 360 slim disc tray, the ding from XB1 pushing the power button, the sound the console makes when booting, anything like that? Havent been able to find anything.

I think Major posted the 360 sounds ages ago.

[edit] Here you go. http://majornelson.com/2010/08/09/xb...onsole-sounds/

[edit 2] There's also Bioshock Infinite & Borderlands 2 sounds http://majornelson.com/?s=sounds

Haha, this is great. Thanks Arsenic 17. Now I'm gonna get all excited when I get a text ... followed by disappointment when I realise it's my girlfriend and not an achievement.

Do you know what's even more awesome with Windows Phone 8.1? It's to have notifications enabled in Xbox One SmartGlass and assign this sound for those!
Now it's like I've got a mini-Xbox in my pocket xD
