I used to use an app called Rings Extended on my G1 to set my own Notification Ringtone(or incoming text). Doesnt seem to work on the Vibrant. Is there another way?

You can also create custom folders which android will recognize for custom sounds. Create a folder called "Media". In that, create a folder called "Audio". In the Audio folder create folders called "Ringtones", "Notifications", "Alarms". If you put custom sounds in those folders, you will be able to select them in your settings.

You can only set custom ringtones for entries stored on the Phone (not GMail like it should be). Easiest way is to create a 2nd contact with the same exact name and set the ringtone there. The phone will automatically link them together. You just need to enter the name and set the ringtone, don't need to re-enter their phone number, etc.

FYI, Rings Extended works for me. I had it on my G1 also, and I loved it so it was one of the first things I installed on my Vibrant. Is it just force closing on you? Won't finish installing?

Great solution. No extra app needed.
