Hello xda-developers community :)
It's my first homebrew app, so be lenient, plz :p

What is MyRingtone2SMS?
It's very simple app, but quite useful :)
As we know it, Mango update added, among other things, possibility to add our ringtone, but only to incoming phone call.
MyRingtone2SMS just adds missing feature - change SMS/Email/Voicemail alert tone :)

How it works?
If you are using e.g. Free Ringtones app, it has ability to save ringtone ("Save Ringtone" window).
Window Phone OS, store this files (ringtones) in "\My Documents\My Ringtones\".
So, MyRingtone2SMS shows files (ringtones) from "\My Documents\My Ringtones\" and when you check the item, it appears in SMS/Email/Voicemail alert tone (in Settings).
Thats all! Now it's easy to set our favorite sms alert tone (e.g. "Power Rangers" :p )

MyRingtone2SMS 0.1.1
begin


New 0.1.1 version adds new features like changing alert characteristics! Now with MyRingtone2SMS u can change in SMS/Email/Voicemail:
- ringtone length
- ringtone volume
- vibration length
- vibration "position"
- breaks
This options are available in basic and advanced mode. In basic mode you just choose few options from menu or fill in textboxes. Advanced mode gives simple and powerful tool to customize your alert, like in Windows Mobile:
cX- set volume to X in percentage max volume,
pX- play ringtone for X seconds,
vX- vibrate for X seconds,
wX- wait for X seconds.

And also in 0.1.1: new WP7 Root Tools, new UI, check root access on startup, gives information about selected alert (small icons near ringtone name). More in changelog.

end

If u have any questions, suggestions, complaints, please write :) THX :)

The app doesn't show any ringtones for me on my LG Quantum, I believe this is because the custom ringtone get saved to My Documents\Ringtones on the LG's or at least my phone for some reason rather than My Documents\My Ringtones. I hope you can add the My Documents\Ringtones file path in your next version

Show nothing on my LG Jilsander e-906

I also have LG (E900), so it's little strange. I try to check it, and add something to fix this issue on yours devices in next version of MyRingtone2SMS. But you have some downloaded ringtones from web and saved by "Save Ringtone" window (look at added screen)?
(check new version 0.0.2)

Many thankx ;)

Best regards,

It's not so easy. Becouse files in \My Documents\My Ringtones\ don't have oryginal names but some kind of GUID. So, I take values from registry: \ControlPanel\Sounds\CustomProtectedRingtones and compare with files in that folder.

Looks like a cool and nice app.

Just wondering, is this also working for mail and voicemail or only IM/sms? Would be nice to also change these other two (allthough i think most people don't use voicemail so mail would be nice).

Personally i think the alert sounds are too loud so i want to change them to sounds with less volume but currently i cannot do this without going into regeditors and copy files into folders i shouldn't be using

My phone is interop unlocked, ROM unlocked (Tango) and also WP7 Root Tools but I can't view any fies or folders. It doesn't work at all. I am using an HTC Trophy CMDA (Spark_W). :confused:

I know they say "just use the thanks button" for these types of things, but I have to thank you with words. Mostly because I have a ton of WP7-toting friends, and we'd all reach for our phones when one of them went off due to the limited sound set. I've mostly averted it by sticking to the Nokia sounds that come with the Lumia 900, but they're upgrading to Lumias now, so it's not going to work for much longer.

Just have to wait for an interop unlock now (and I'm pretty sure it'll happen since the Lumia is a pretty popular phone it seems)

    does anybody have the stock ringtones of sms and other stuff from Lumia 800 or 900? it would be nice i it be posted here as link... please

    You can find it in Free Ringtones, try to search "Lumia".

    on an Omnia interop unlocked-wp root tools runs ok- it exits with the message "app doesn't have root access, closing..." weird

    Maybe you should re-enable root access or reinstall MyRingtone2SMS.

    Yes,Thanks a lot.You can send the .resx file to my email.
    email:[email protected]

    Ok. Just give me time to finish new version, and after that I'll send you resx files. Thanks.

    Mr. Magnificent update if you are a god and has no problem the application is highly customizable and intuitive, it lacks the Spanish language as other languages ​​but is also very easy to handle despite being in English.
    THANKS!!

    You are welcome :) Maybe you want to translate to spanish, or I try to find someone to translate and attach it with new release. Thanks for feedback.
