So I know that anyone can add custom ringtones but am I the only person to be disappointed with the original ringtones that come pre-loaded on the HTC 8X? Are there any differences in the default ringtones and sounds depending on your carrier or region? I'm just curious to know as my phone is carrier unlocked (UK).
On my 8X, there are 21 Windows Phone ringtones and just 2 HTC ringtones. In contrast, my previous HTC HD7 came with 39 Windows Phone ringtones and 63 HTC ringtones.
I actually used 'Bell Curve' on my old HD7 and I've searched high and low and now I've found it! But I wonder if this situation is the same for everyone?

Yeah the stock ringtones suck on the 8x compared to the HD7 cant even get a decent classic phone ringtone. Dont think its carrier specific either did have an O2 8X but got an carrier unlocked replacement from HTC now and the tones are idnetical
Did have the distorted ringtone from the film Crank on my HD7 but felt like a change on my 8X and have gone for the instrumental theme from the film Ill Manors.

That's a lot for the new link
I've download them :-)
As I have yet to set up my 8x from my HD7, do you have any more tips in transfering settings / information over?
Do you recommend using the same Microsoft login, so the Cloud etc is the same, or start a fresh ?Did you manage to transfer over all your history ie sms emails calls ?

As for accounts, when you first sign-in, it will ask you to confirm the password for built-in linked accounts like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter assuming you had these configured on your previous phone. Because I don't use Outlook.com/Homail for my main e-mail, calendar, contacts or notes, I had to setup my Exchange again but of course, that's all I had to do since everything snyc'd once added. As for applications, I had to visit windowsphone.com and view my purchase history and re-install them all again. To be fair, it forced me to think about whether I really wanted them all back.
28 days in and my WP8 phone died and had to be replaced. Because WP8 has some more built-in backup features, I had a much differnet experience setting it all up again but only after WP8 had backed-up to the cloud first. Read here. WP8 Backup experience (after phone exchange)

Hi everybody just got 8x , love this phone.
I am a little confuse with the ringtone, no matter what tone I use, it stays in the stock tone even though the name has changed?
is there something I am missing here?
Never mind I found my problem, I was using my sons phone to call my self to check out the new tone I downloaded, not realizing that his contact on my phone
had the assigned tone that I was trying to get ride of.
What I was changing was the default tone.
