Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2009 6:42 PM (in response to dgrizz09)Downloaded from where? The iTunes Store? The only thing there is ringtones.
The iPhone has never supported anything but the included text message alerts and I've never found any iPhone text alert tones.
If you want to be able to use custom text alert tones send your wish here:

Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2009 7:16 AM (in response to deggie)Yes downlaoded from itunes 8 and it was on the itunes store list, why would they list it if it can't be accomplished? Sounds ike a rip off to me...other than this small peeve the iphone is great and my only choice for cellphone in the future.BTW I bought the 32gb overkill, but thought with future app's and games might need the need the capacity.Rain Computer Systems, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2009 8:06 AM (in response to dgrizz09)I have never seen iTunes sell or make available SMS tones. The iPhone can only change the ring tone at this time. I know because I would love to change the SMS tone, but can not. Not unless the phone is jail broken and I have no plans to do that.Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2009 9:42 AM (in response to SpurtSpanker)Text alerts are not customizable as of yet without jail breaking the iPhone...custom ring tones are all we can do for now...
Send feedback to Apple if you'd like this to be added in the future...

Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2009 11:42 AM (in response to dgrizz09)You are confusing ringtones available in iTunes with a text alert tone. There are NO text alert tones in the iTunes Store hence there is no "rip off".MacPro Dual Core 2.66 Ghz, MacBook Pro 15", iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.5.6), AEXs, Red 2G Nano, Red Shuffle, 160 GB Classic, White 60GB 5G, Apple TV
Currently Being ModeratedAug 3, 2009 8:45 AM (in response to dgrizz09)search 'text alert' in itunes and you will get many results.
imo these are misleading and should be removed.
or, even better, apple should make it that we can change the text alerts in their next software update (please)pc, Windows XP
