    Hey there!!! I have the Lumia 928. I can't seem to change Instant messaging ringtones at all. I have What's App, Voxer and Chaton. All of them have the same IM'ing apps. Please help.

    At this point, the only custom ringtones that can be created and assigned are for phone calls. There is no way to assign a custom ringtone unique to each specific IM app.

    So, let me see if I have this right. I have an option that is supposed to allow me to change my text and IM ringtones, but it doesn't work? I don't want it to be different for each app, I just wan it change period. Doesn't matter what ringtone I choose in that option, it doesn't change for the one I select.

    The text and IM ringtone customization is for the built in messaging application for SMS, MMS, Messenger, and Facebook. Third party IM apps just get the generic notification tone because the OS views those messages as notifications from an app, not as messages from a friend.

    you know man, this is really dumb. Everybody changes those generic tones. Why they would choose not to allow you to do that is idiotic at best.

    settings | ringtones + sound | manage app sounds | Messaging

    Sets the sound for ALL messaging apps. . .
