The alarm clock has snooze by default.

For my ringtones etc, I have a folder on my SD named Media and sub folders marked notifications, ringtones, alarms, wallpapers. The phone seems to be able to make sense of this and shows the alarms in the alarm clock etc.

To change ringtones etc you go into the app and press the menu button. You should be able to change the tones etc in there.

For changing ringtones and sms tones, you go into settings. (on your home screen press menu) go to Audio (or Sound/Notifications, whatever our may be) and there you'll have the options to change type ringtone and sms notifications.

Setting different tones for every audio requires you to go into that app and change the settings individually.

this has worked you have to create the folder in the phones memory not external SD card.

how do i customise notification for each item i.e. I want a different one for SMS, EMail, Voicemail etc.

but the options only allows for one notification for all?

You need to go into each app and in the settings menu there should be an option for notifications.

Hi,

thanks for the replies,

Does anyone know if its possible to have different notification i.e. SMS, EMail, voicemail etc?

at the moment its seems like you can only have one notification sound for all.
