Ringtones for Text Messages
Does anyone know if it's possible to set mp3s that I download as my text message ringtone? When I try to set my text message alert, the TM506 just gives me a fixed list of tones that I have to choose from.

3rd party apps can be used, you can use Google Maps, Opera Mobile, no problem

mp3's set as ringtones

I don't get it.
Ericsson had a big fight with Qualcomm a while back.
There is also a big long story about ...
3G Plans and Tethering
Will Carriers in Canada use this someday?
