is there a way u can set a song as a ringtone for a txt msg?

Go to the music player and hit menu. There is an option to set as a ringtone. From there you have options to use the whole song or trim it down to a specific section of the song you want. You have to have music loaded on ur phone first.

I followed your directions and that changes the ring tones but it doesn't have that option for text messages. All I see for the text notification is a very limited choice of onboard ring tones. I would love to have my own notification for the text messages.

Thanks for the help.

right...sorry bout that. Ok download ringdroid from the marketplace. Same basic principal. That will give you the option to set it as a notification sound.
