    u wanna use some music as tone? Yes u can, there is a trick to do it. You convert the song in a way readable by the iphone and u can use it as tone. No need for a soft, you can do so via iTunes..

    Yes you can.

    You need to replace the SMS tones in the Audio/UISounds folder.

    caf files only. Message tones are 1 through 6. You replace whichever one you want and set them in Settings > Sounds > Message Tones.

    The work around for this issue is to replace one of the 6 new tones with your own. First, you'll need to convert your sound to a .caf file. Then using your favorite browser program (WinSCP, iBrickr, Cyberduck, etc), navigate to this directory on your phone:

    /System/Library/Audio/UISounds

    The 6 Apple-created SMS sounds are as follows:

    sms-received1.caf = Tri-tone
    sms-received2.caf = Chime
    sms-received3.caf = Glass
    sms-received4.caf = Horn
    sms-received5.caf = Bell
    sms-received6.caf = Electronic

    So you'll want to pick one of these to replace over. For example, if you decide to replace Electronic, you'll want to rename your sound file to sms-received6.caf and just upload the file to this directory. Then go to Settings-->Sounds-->New Text Message and select your sound file.

    Please note that the SMS name will not change. So if you replaced Electronic with your own custom tone, it will still say "Electronic" in the menu, but will play your custom tone.

    P.S.: For the .caf file use a program that converts to .aiff then change extension to .caf.

    kthx :p

    I totally didnt read all that coz you didnt read what i said!, i dont have an Audio/UISounds folder when i go through fugu/cyberduck! so therefore i cant change my sms tones coz there's non to change coz i have no Audio/UISounds folder!

    I want to know why i dont have Audio/UISounds when i go through the directories? not how to, just why i dont have this folder!

    ifonechick, are we to understand that you get no sound when an SMS comes in? and that when you try to alter the SMS tone in settings there are no sounds when you test the choices? If so then you must have deleted the folder somehow and a restore will put them all back.
    If you CAN hear SMS tones, then the folder is in fact there and you are looking in the wrong place... someone else can give you the full directory link to drill down to as I dont have access to mine at the moment.
