    I have tried downloading some ringtones and they only show up in the ringtones section, and not text / IM alerts. Is there no way of using custom tones for texts?

    Yeah, I agree with this. I'm disappointed at the lack of customization. I had windows mobile 6.5, and could customize pretty much every sound the device emitted. I want a minimal sound for everything, like a faint beep or something that may make a sound for a quarter of a second, not these long, drawn out sounds. Hopefully WP8 has something like that, because 7.5 doesnt.
