    me too. It sucks to be limited down to pre-installed tones. I want to be able to choose cow or sheep sounds for my sms

    I am really hoping that this is coming in one of the GDR's or Blue. It's been a complaint since WP7. Someone has to have noticed

    It is indeed not good enough. Aside from mere dislike of the sound world that the MS tones seem to eminate from, many seem poorly-designed for the task of being strident and clear- so many "soft" sounds in there. As a synthesist/sound sculptor it is particularly annoying not to be able to roll my own custom tones....

    You'd think this is something that someone on the Windows Team could probably sit down and code in a night or two, then release as a small update, it just needs to be added to the people hub like the custom ringtones. But no...we wait...and wait. I sometimes wonder what that team does at work all day.

    And that's a big part of my complaint...some of the tones are so soft, even with the volume turned up, it's still to quite.

    Not only custom tones, but the ability to have certain contacts be silent and no vibrate!

    It's his phone, if he wants a sheep or a cow for every message, why shouldn't he get it?
