    im not sure what im doing wrong, before i found the guid i tried replacing sms-received4.caf with my custome tone, (named it the same for it to work) but it didnt work, and when i click on horn in the sounds/sms tones, i get nothing no sound whatsoever.
    so im not sure if thats my problem, im pretty sure that wouldnt affect winterboard though..
    btw, i named the tone in the winterboard them sms-received1.caf
    i converted them from aiff just like the guid said..
    my tone is 4sec. long... im bamboozeled..
    (love that word) any suggestions?
    p.s. i am using an iphone 3g on ios 4.0
    -thanks.

    They might have changed the names of the sounds in iOS4, can you use ring tones as message tones?

    No they're the same I found them using ifile/winscp
    System/library/audio/SMS-receivedX.caf
    I could use anyRing but I don't think it works on 4.0
    (does anyone use anyring on theirs?)
    Either way theoretically, it should be working..

    Try going to the settings and change your message tone and see if you here your custom sms ring in the main sms ringtone
