    Lightbulb Ringtones and notifications

    Found this info on an android forum, though ti might be useful.

    For CALLER ringtones you may already know that creating a "rintone" folder on the SD card (and filling it with MP3s) will show up in your ringtone list.

    But for MMS SMS and EMail Notifications,the mp3s in the ringtone folder wont show up.
    Create a folder on your SD card called "notifiations" and it will do the same for your mms sms and email ringtone list!

    UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEW file structure that will let you do the above ASWELL as add alarms!


    On your SD card Create the following file structure:

    Media (in root of SD card)

    ----- Audio (in the Media folder)

    --------- Ringtones (in Audio folder)
    --------- Notifications (in Audio folder)
    --------- Alarms (in Audio folder)

    Now just Drag n Drop your favs into the folder where you will be using it, or ALL of them (like i do) and they will appear in the default lists. No app required !!!

    Dont worry, you can still use "DROOOID" (i do!! )... but you have unlimited others to add now!

    from my understanding this should work for all the android phones. they all read the SD filesystem the same way.

    I am assuming so...as the concept is the same...the only difference is 1.5 vs 2.. oh and the lovely sense UI...which eris has...and will be updated to 2 eventually.

    I'm using the "Rings Extend" free app and it lets you select any sound. Granted I will follow your naming structure (why scroll through all my music right) so thanks for the heads-up!

    Didnt know there was "an app for that"... heh ...

    But personally i think it would be easier not to use one. One more app to setup...

    Im also testing the theory on "wallpaper" folder. IE: long press on homescreen gives u the WALLPAPER setting, then asks Gallery or Wallpaper gallery? that way u can set you wallpapers in their own folder vs scrollin through all your pix.

    SCRATCH THAT THEORY... NO GO...
