Custom ringtones, alarms, sms notifications

To use custom ringtones for your phone ringtone, your alarm or your text message notification, simply copy an MP3 file to one of the following folders:
/sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
/sdcard/media/audio/alarms
/sdcard/media/audio/notifications

If they don't already exist, then create a new folder.

The file will then show up when you want to change your ringtones.

For Ringtones go to Settings - Sound - Phone ringtone
For Text Messages go to - Settings - Sound - Notification ringtone
For Alarm, set the sound when you add a new alarm

    this is not working for me. Does this need ice cream sandwich? I do not have a sdcard folder. Just two removable drives show up in windows explorer. I created a folder sdcard/media/audio/notifications but my mp3 files do not show up under notifications

    Create a folder in internal storage folder media/audio/ringtones. Worked perfectly for me, still using gingerbread.
