How to add custom Windows Phone SMS Alert tone : MyRingtone2SMS

One feature many users wanted once we got the custom ringtones feature in Windows Phone Mango was the ability to add custom SMS tones , there was a way to get this done by a registry edit but now thanks to the effort of Windows Phone developer djfoxer and his app MyRingtone2SMS there is an easy way to get custom ringtones on your Windows Phone. You will need a fully Unlocked device or you can use Windows Phone Root Tools to give the MyRingtone2SMS app Trusted status.

The app allows you to pick all the custom ringtones you add on your windows phone ( click to see our tutorial on how to add custom ringtones ) and make them available on the SMS tone selection menu. You can selctively pick the ones you want to show up , then go in to Settings >> ringtones + sound >> New text or IM and pick the custom tones you want.

NOTE : if your tone goes on for 30 second the sms tone will go on for 30 sec .. so add shorter version of the tones as ringtones to be used as SMS tones

You can download the XAP from here ( click here for direct link )

    I for one would like to have the option of vibrate only for SMS. At present, it’s all or nothing.

    • bAN01TgAZ

      you could try emptying the key
      ‘HKCU\Current User\ControlPanel\Sounds\SMS\Sound’

      then you will only get a vibrate alert.

    This is close to what I want. I haven’t downloaded it yet, as I’m having problems with the root toolkit. The one thing of note was, since switching the one thing that has bugged me is that I can’t set a personalized SMS ring for each user. If that happens, I’ll be in love with my phone as opposed to just enamoured with it.

  • Rachel

    All I want is to be able to use ringtones on my sms! I don’t know how to do all this excess programming. Not a user friendly tutorial.

    • Saijo George

      Sadly this requires an interop unlocked device ( think of it like jailbreaking an iphone ) .. hopefully Microsoft sees the user demand for this and includes this as a stock feature in future versions

  • Uday Vaswani

  • Phil K

    I’d love to be able to put my choice of tone onto sms, but don’t want to root or jailbreak after my experiences with android rooting. How do you install this ?

  • Kim

    I wonder if microsoft eggheads are waking up to the fact that this is literally why windows phone platform has done so poorly in the past. The fact that you have to jailbreak it to do anything more than be a glorified mp3 player is absolutely ridiculous in this day and age. Wake up.

  • matt

    I have a Samsung ATIV S and want to know if there is a way to get custom SMS alerts without jail breaking it

    • Saijo George

      sadly no

  • Alxias

    Hello I have a ZTE Render WP7.5
    I cannot find ANY tutorials on how to jailbreak my phone (I really want sms ringtons other than the default I think it’s stupid that it wasn’t included to begin with.)

    Does anyone know of a place to go to do this..? I have no idea how to jail break it without a tutorial or step by step..

    Email me @ Thank you

  • Yuriy Rochnyak

    I suppose this app would be quite good with WP7.x, but does it work with WP8?

    Anyway, is there any solutions for uploading user-smstone in WP8?

  • SJ

    It wont let me dwnload it keeps saying to contact company

  • Miles

    This app won’t download on my Nokia 925.3 and I don’t have an SD card. When I click the direct link it tries to download and says something’s wrong with your company app. So I recognizes its an app but it won’t work please fix!

  • dick

  • Jimmy Bernard
