Hi fmanzo,

 

Thanks for your feedback and welcome to the forum.

 

You can't attach ringtones to SMS messages, you will need to use MMS for this and as such you will have to have MMS setup on your phone. You can do this using the Network Setup app which is available in Nokia collection on the Marketplace through your phone. Also you can attach custome ringtones only, not the built in ones.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

 What seems to have confused the issue is the Microsoft web site specifically says "text message" rather than "MMS" or just "messages".

Re: SMS tones for nokia lumia 800

Hi guys, 

 

Is there a way that text tones can be down loaded on The Nokia Lumia 800?

 

I have the standard nokia text tone currently and can't change text tones from any apps that I've downloaded :smileysad:

Hopefully a solution can be found as it's disappointing not being able to down load a text tone from various apps. 

 

Has anyone got an answer to this problem?

SMS tones

Come on Nokia - are you listening?  People want to be able to use their own SMS tones - not the useless ones that are built in (the ones that you can't hear unless you are sitting at a desk)
