    Hello, I'm new to WebOS

    I recently purchased a Palm Pixi. I don't know how to make the SMS ringtone longer than 3 secs. I've read the forums and didnt explain to me what I had to do. Starting with downloading WebOs quick install, it was just a .rar file with many folders and files within it. Can someone give be a step-by-step guide telling me how to install WebOS to changing the length of my SMS ringtone

    As an alternative I'm going to suggest a more powerful alernative (via a webOS patch).... http://forums.precentral.net/enlight...ngtones+Longer

    The easiest way to install it would be via Preware (IMO).

    One option this patch allows is repeat SMS notifications. For example you can have the phone remind you of a text every 5 minutes until you acknowledge it.

    You don't "make an SMS Ringtone longer"...you simply find a ringtone that IS longer! Find a sound clip that you like, edit it to the length you want, then save it & save it on you USB media partition inside the "ringtones" folder & then simply change your ringtone under Preferences in the Messaging app

    That doesn't work though, at least it doesn't on my Pre+ on Red.
    I have a few that are longer than 3-5 seconds and it cuts them off.

    It only happens with the SMS tones. I can assign any ringtone that plays fully to the SMS and it cuts it off somewhere around 5 seconds.

    I have a few tones that are just a few seconds over the 5 and it's really annoying that it chops the tone off. I'd really like to hear the whole tone, that's why I Picked it!! LOL

    I am also interested in this, perhaps a "remove sms tone cutoff" patch could be made. (I have a verizon Pre2 on a meta-2.1.0)
