    Hello

    I was wondering if it was possible to upload custom alert tones for WP8 devices, I want whatsapp to have a specific alert tone as the current one
    or maybe the default one is too soft and most of the time I am unable to hear it. I recently found out it is possible to have custom ringtones for wp8 by creating a ringtones folder on the device memory but can't the same method not be applied to alert tones???

    Nope.

    Edit: if you have GDR3 you can choose from custom ringtones and use them for TEXT or IM messages.

    Nope.
    I concur with Mr. Lebowski that you cannot add custom tones for SMS alerts. This appears to be the case even on the Black update. The Black update does show preloaded 13 optional tones for SMS alerts, unlike Amber and previous. My comment only applies to Nokia Lumia 920 on AT&T. Nokia and AT&T updates by degrees. Hey Nokia, I'd de-couple from AT&T. Too many picayune restrictions on even teeny weeny things like SMS alert tones.

    I have a 1520 (GDR3+Black) on AT&T. I can set custom SMS tones, both globally and on a contact to contact basis. Not sure about Whatsapp, as I don't use it.

    I have a 1020 and GDR3+Black on AT&T. I am able to set a custom SMS tone per contact or globally for all contacts... but is it possible to set None (meaning silent) as a text tone for a specific contact?

    Also has anyone heard if text tones can be set based on the time of day? Meaning go silent from 11pm till 7am otherwise use the contact or global setting for the tone.
