Firstly, I would suggest you to try Ringtone Maker. It worked fine for me. Now, if you are using any other file, just take care of these restrictions: MP3 or WMA file, not protected with Digital Rights Management (DRM), less than 1 MB in size, less than 40 seconds in length, must have the genre "ringtone" set. The file must be copied directly from a PC to ...

settings > ringtones+sounds > manage app sounds at the bottom. I think you should see appropriate app sound to change. Note this only works in Windows Phone 8.1,

There are several restrictions that ringtones have on them and as such, you cannot just set any mp3 (or song). Even if you have one that meets the requirements as a ringtone, you also cannot add a ringtone straight from your music library. If you can play a sound file on your phone, if it isn't protected with digital rights management (DRM), and if it's ...

This is now possible in Windows Phone 8.1, as the Volume Bar now has an interactive slider for ringer volume and a separate toggle for vibrate: To open the Volume Bar, press either of the volume keys as usual, then expand it by tapping the chevron. Reduce ringer volume to 0 with the volume keys or by dragging the slider, and now you can toggle between ...

Not sure what exactly you mean by "proper phone ring sound", but if you mean the sound an old-school rotary phone would make, then on my Lumia 920 that's (rather appropriately) called "Nostalgia", under the Nokia category. In addition, you can always use any MP3 file as a ringtone. Just Bing/Google for something like "phone ring sound mp3". But yeah, this ...

You can toggle vibrate on and off in the volume bar: Press either of the volume keys to open the volume bar, then expand it by tapping the chevron. Tap the "VIBRATE ON"/"VIBRATE OFF" icon to toggle vibrate. Alternatively, go to Settings → ringtones+sounds, you can also toggle vibrate there.

None of what you are asking for is possible at this time - even with the GDR2/Amber update. It's not possible to... Set a custom SMS/Message tone per contact or filter Access the phone's SMS/Message store via API, or implement anything similiar yourself. These features may appear in the future so keep an eye out for GDR3 (due late 2013) and the WP 8.1 ...

If the song is already in your music library on your 520 then you can simply use Nokia Ringtone Maker (Free Download on WP Store). Nokia Ringtone Maker lets you choose a song and cut a 40 second segment then save as a ringtone. Then go to Settings > Ringtones & Sounds and select it from the ringtone list :) However, the song must be DRM Free!

This is a limitation by the OS - the sound will always play as long as the toast notification is visible which even is under 5 seconds. Unfortunately you can't change that duration, even as the app developer. However you can tap the toast notification and drag it a bit to the right as if you would discard it but don't release it. This way you can keep the ...

There is another path to the same set of configs: With the Windows Phone O.S. 8.1 follow this steps: Go to Settings notifications+actions Find the app you want to change the way notifications work Just change the "Notification sound" to the appropriate sound you want.

I'm using Lumia 535 and WP 8.1 Update 2. I can change Ringtone, Alarm, SMS notification and calendar notification to custom sounds. It only works if I connect to a computer and copy mp3 files to Phone->Ringtones (when I saved a file from browser on my phone directly, it didn't work, but when I moved that file to computer and back to phone, it worked). The ...

Open the People app and view the contact you want to change the ringtone for. Hit the pencil button to edit the contact. On the edit Screen you can select a custom or default ringtone for this person.


2

Copy the file on a PC, right click mp3 file select "properties" select details tab at top, set(add/edit) genre as "ringtone" move file to phone storage under "ringtones" folder In Settings/Personalization/Sounds/Ringtone the file name is now in the list of ringtones Note: it does not appear under "custom" for me its just in the list

You can use this method as I am using with my Lumia 535 effectively. This also works well for file sizes greater than 1MB. Go to store and download UC browser app. Download any song with UC. Go to UC download list and select the downloaded file. Tap on "Set as ringtone" and that's it.

There is an app called "Ringtone Maker" made by Nokia before it was bought by Microsoft and its still available in the store. It allows you to make ringtones from your music collection. You can also select the desired length of the ringtone up to 30 seconds. You may have to convert your recordings into .mp3 and place them in your Music folder. You can ...

You can turn it on by setting the Ringer On. To do this Plug in your earphone Press volume up/down button Press the down arrow at the top right Select the ringer on. ( After selection it should appear in your acent color ) If you set the Ringer off (see below pic) you will not hear ringtone on speaker but you will still hear it on earphone.

Unfortunately this is currently not possible. You can only set ringtones for a specific contact. You can post your suggestion on http://windowsphone.uservoice.com.

If you create custom ringtones in Windows Phones, whether using the Ringtone Maker app, or the traditional method of copying .mp3 files, they are stored on the phone in a folder named "Ringtones": So, if you want to move the ringtones to another device, you can just copy the contents of the folder, onto your machine, then drop them in the same folder on the ...

As @Indrek said it works fine for me too in build 10586.494. This build is available for public. So this must be a bug that is fixed in update. Have you tried using Preview release ring in the Insider app? This may work for you. If not there is no way to solve it as your phone cannot be updated.

Don't know if this helps, but you can set the default notification sound for the Messaging app. Here is how to do it: Go to settings Go to Notifications & Actions Scroll down until you see an app called Messaging and tap on it Choose notification sound (notice that this is set to "Default") Choose the sound you want for the messaging app

Still I didn't get the reason, but last week I reverted the OS for cyan update and took developer preview update. Can't find the issue in this build.

Try running a Normalize plugin on the file within the audio editing software, and then run a limiter. Within the limiter, increase the volume, as opposed to increasing the volume of the file itself.

For basically every sound except the NFC sound, there will be a toast notification or popup on screen. You just have to catch it in action. The 8.1 update (coming soon) will add a notification history, making this somewhat easier.

I already have answered here. You can use this method as I am using with my Lumia 535 effectively. This also works well for file sizes greater than 1MB. Go to store and download UC browser app. Download any song with UC. Go to UC download list and select the downloaded file. Tap on "Set as ringtone" and that's it. Check this out. Its 100% working for ...

If the third party app saved it correctly, go to Settings --> ringtones + sounds --> Ringtone. The custom ringtones will be at the top of the list in a Custom group followed by the stock ringtones on the Windows Phone Group. You can tap any one of these to select it. If the third party app did not correctly save it, there is nothing you can do other than ...

Save it like plain mp3 file and then use Ringtone Maker to transform it into ringtone. With Ringtone Maker, you can create ringtones from the music on your phone. Simply open the app, select your favorite song and save it as a ringtone. You can cut your ringtone anyway you like, with editing controls that let you choose the start, end and length of your ...
