    Is it possible to have custom SMS ringtones? I would think that it is possible, but I have never seen a guide about it.
    Any help is appreciated.

    i remember an app called 'Ringtone' on 1.1.4 that allows you to convert SMS ringtones. but it's not available on 2.0.

    for 2.0 however, you can change your call ringtone. but you have to convert it to .m4r first on your pc/mac then SSH it into private/var/stash/Ringtones.qb7eT4.
    don't know how to change SMS ringtones on 2.0 though...anyone know?

    step 1.
    get the file you want and open it in goldwave(free program) or any other music software and save it as ".aiff"

    step 2.
    and they need to be named sms-receivedX.caf (change X to Number between 1 and 6 depending on what sms tone you want to replace)

    step 3.
    then ssh into this folder and put your sms in there
    "/System/Library/Audio/UISounds"

    step 4.
    make sure permissions are set to 644

    You dont have to ssh into your phone to add a regular ringtone. I added mine to iTunes and synced it.

    I tried tom's guide and it didn't work. I replaced number 6, and when I select it, it makes no sounds...
