    To create a ringtone for an SMS:
    1. Start by creating the Media\Audio\Notifications folder on the SD card
    2. Copy your MP3s to this folder
    3. Unmount the SD card and make sure the messaging app isn't running.
    4. Open the messaging app and go Menu > Settings.
    5. Second option from the bottom is Select Ringtone, open that and choose the file you want.

    I've noticed in all apps which access the SD card for tones you have to make sure the app is restarted after copying the files over or it doesn't list them.

    Hope this helps...

    Does that means I have to root the phone to be able to create directories on the sd card? I used Atro and there is no option to create file/directory.

    TIA

    By FARRR the easiest way to make ringtones/notification/alarms is with RINGDROID.

    It is AMAZING. Allows you to precisely cut/edit songs and mp3 files and save them as ringtones and notifications!

    It automatically saves them in the correct spots, and they instantly showed up as ringtones or notifications!!

    You may need to convert to mp3 (I don't know yet- my nexus one is supposed to arrive tomorrow!).

    Enjoy!
