    I thought we had a section for ringtones, but I guess not, so I'm putting this here since this is one of the most active forums. I finally upgraded my phone (sorry guys...I have a BB z30 now...2 days in...). It's not webos, but the other browser was too slow and something was leaking data and running up my data plan. I'm keeping my pre3 as a wifi device, but I really want the default text message sound so I can use it on my new phone. Does anyone have it or can you tell me how to extract it? It's not listed with the rest of the ringtones on my pre3.

    You might want to check /usr/palm/sounds

    It has the following files:
    alert.wav
    notification.wav
    phone.wav
    ringtone.mp3

    I swear Herrie, you are a national treasure. For real. If you aren't in the US that makes you an international treasure...lol... The notification wav was the one I needed. I'm trying to do everything I can to bring any bit of webOS I can to this phone, and this helps immensely. I was sad at the thought I might not ever hear that text notification sound again. You've made me very happy!!!

    I use the original alerts before they changed them to have more bass with the first webos update

    I am a bit confused if there's is a unique text message alert or you meant the system notifications. Anyways thats what I have, the original files before they made them deeper. See attached

    This is what I was looking for. Thanx!! The sound of the one on my pre 3 I like better tho. I thought yours would be deeper because you said it had more bass,but I misread your response, and you had actually said the opposite. I use the aol got mail message for my email as well. I used to have one for voicemail, but something happened when one of the software upgrades were done, and we could no customize that sound. I attached the sound file tho, the one for notifications and the old one I used for voicemail.
