Ok so, I have a 3g 16gb iPhone jailbroken. I have downloaded some new sms tones but they arnt there when i try to change it in settings. Am i missing something? The default sms tones are abysmal.
Any help would be great guys....

are you jailbroken? you cant add sms tones to the iphone, but if you are jailbroken you can replace the existing ones with different sound files of the same format, just rename them to match the ones you are replacing.
theres 6 files
convert your sound file to .aif then rename it to match one of those 6 and manually change the extension to .caf. with your new file, place it in the /system/library/audio/UIsounds folder on your iphone.
whichever one you replaced will still be called its own name in settings, but once you select you will hear the new one.
