Custom Ringtones On Your WP7!

Here's a quick video I put together to help everyone get some custom ringtones on their WP7 (if you've updated to Mango).


Enjoy!

It shouldn't be that much effort lol. Can't believe it wasn't a part of the update.

And this rules out Mac users.

Yeah they kind've make you work for it, but it really didn't take that much work. A few clicks here and there and some importing Still can't figure out how to do custom alerts!

Let us know if you learn how to do custom alerts. Having the achievement pop for text would be super sweet.

I used to have Louis from Left 4 Dead screaming "PILLS HERE!" I hope someone figures out how to do custom sounds cause its the only thing i miss about my old phone.

Getting the custom tones for my Trophy is easier then i used to have to do it though and thanks for the walkthrough.

Still seems like a basic feature that Windows out of everybody should have incorportated into the powerfull devices.

I am finished!!

I bought a WP7 phone soon after they came out last year. I knew the OS would not be like the previous WM phones and would be locked down. However, what I didn't expect were the lack of custom ringtones and alerts, the lack of a tethering feature, and the inability to save new contacts to my sim instead of the phone. I put the phone away, and went and bought an Android phone as I patiently waited to see if Microsoft would address at least some of these issues.

I was happy to see the proposed changes for Mango, and had decided I would update my HTC HD7, and possibly go buy the new HTC Titan when it was available. Imagine my surprise when I get the update and discovered the following:
1. Installing a custom ringtone, although not rocket science, is much harder than it should be. STRIKE ONE!
2. There is no option for custom alerts/notifications. STRIKE TWO!
3. The tethering function is not currently available on my HTC HD7. STRIKE THREE.
4. If they ever do enable tethering for the WP7, it is still only wireless. STRIKE FOUR.

That makes 4 strikes for Microsoft. Three strikes and your OUT.

Message to Microsoft:
If I wanted a phone locked down as tight as an Iphone, I would have bought an Iphone!
I am going to buy a Samsung Galaxy S2. I am an Android convert now!

I forced the update. Do a search for "Force Mango Update", and there are instructions on how to do it.

The link you posted isn't working for me, but I am assuming you did it using a hack? I shouldn't have to "hack" my phone to get what I consider a basic function that any smartphone should have. Especially considering that prior to WP7, Windows Mobile had it present.

I found ways to get custom ringtones BEFORE Mango came out. But once again, why should a basic function require that much fiddling around with your phone?

You may consider it a basic function, but I couldn't care less about wired tethering. If I absolutely must tether something, wireless is fine with me. I'd much rather they work on something important, like not having my WP7 lock up if I try to view a message that's already been deleted on LIVE.

Guess we will have to wait until the kiwi update to get custom alerts. I mean I would much rather have that over ringtones anyway. I get piles of texts but very little calls.

Haven't had any issues with it locking up when viewing messages. Then again, I seldom check email on my phone.
The reason wired is important for me, aside from the point that wired is faster, my desktop doesn't have wireless. I move pretty often, and when I do move to a new location, I want to have internet until the internet provider gets around to setting me up. For my last move this past July, I just pulled out an old WM 6.2 phone and used that for the week it took for me to get it in my house.

The point is moot now. I am going to get a Samsung Galaxy S2.

I wasn't saying it wasn't essential to you. What you have to remember is that they have to consider what's essential to the majority of their userbase. And I'd be willing to bet that 95% of those who want to use tethering can use a wireless network.

How they missed out on the custom alert sounds, I will never know. That really does seem like a major oversight, since they figured out how important custom ringtones were, I assume that they would realize that custom alerts were just as important, if not more so?
