Change Calendar Alarm Sound on Lumia 800

[ Edited ]

Loving my new Lumia 800. I have moved from an E90 communicator, then an N900, and now this. So far so good.

 

However, the alarm which sounds when a calendar reminder is triggers is neither long enough or loud enough. Can someone advise please how to change the alarm sound for Calendar reminders to something else please?

 

As far as I can tell it is not possible to do it in 'ringtones+sounds' or the calendar itself.

Re: Change Calendar Alarm Sound on Lumia 800

I can change my calls ringtone to one I have downloaded and also my alarm but there is only the option of the pre-loaded nokia ringtones to chose from when I try and change my voicemail, sms or email ringtones. Am I doing something wrong or is this not possible?
Thanks

Re: Change Calendar Alarm Sound on Lumia 800

this might be usefull

Simply navigate to any online music:
The Nokia Lumia 800 is a smartphone. Most smart phones let you save any music file you could find online by touching and holding your finger on it, then selecting "save." Once the music file is added to your memory card, tap-and-hold it and select "assign" from the contextual menu.

By USB cable:
The Nokia Lumia 800 is compatible with the "USB Mass Storage" norm. Get a USB cable (There might be one in your Nokia Lumia 800 package) and, linking your Nokia Lumia 800 to your computer should make it appear as a memory key. Open it and just drag MP3 songs or other sound or music files directly to your Nokia Lumia 800, as if it was one of your computer's folder. For the remaining steps, please refer to your Nokia Lumia 800 manual. The ringtone section should explain how to select an uploaded file as a ringtone.

Using Bluetooth:
The Nokia Lumia 800 is Bluetooth-enabled. Bluetooth is a wireless system which lets you connect your cell phone to other devices. If your computer is also Bluetooth-enabled, simply establish a connection between both devices and transfer your audio files from your computer to your Nokia Lumia 800.

Simply record sound directly:
Since your Nokia Lumia 800 features a sound recorder (also known as "voice memo"), a very simple technique involves simply placing your phone by your computer's speakers, playing whatever song, music or sound you would like as a ringtone, and recording it -- you can even use your voice, your child's voice or even your cat's "meow!" Record it with your mobile and there you go! Unless that function was specifically blocked on the Nokia Lumia 800, you should be able to navigate to the ringtones sub-menu and choose your new recording as a ringtone. Of course, the quality won't be ideal but, after all, it's free!

Via a 3G Uploader:
If these tricks do not work for you or if you prefer not to buy new accessories, you can always use one of the numerous free "3G Uploader" services available online. A search on Katapulco should retrieve plenty of them. 3G uploaders work as follows: Upload your own free ringtones on their web site and they will provide a temporary web address. Navigating to that URL with your Nokia Lumia 800's browser will download the free ringtone

Re: Change Calendar Alarm Sound on Lumia 800

1. every sync is dependent on zune

2. inability to assign ringtones to different function e.g. u cant set diff tones for sms,mms.e-mail,chat e.t.c.

3. cant use songs from the music files as ringtones.

4. no file manager

5.no usb transfer.

6. no bluetooth transfer between devices ( i cant send pictures songs documents from one phone to another)

 

these are facts, nokia with MS is now going the apple way of a closed system.

Re: Change Calendar Alarm Sound on Lumia 800

Hi

I have the same problem and its driving me nuts forgetting important things because I cannot hear the alarm, also it doesn't seem to repeat the alarm.  Can I please ask you, did you solve this problem?   I would be so grateful if you could pass on how to change this. 

 

Thanks

Anita
