    How to change the sms ringtone to one I have downloaded

    Hi all. I have downloaded a new sms ringtone because I don't really like the stock one's, but I can't seem to apply it. Any ideas?

    There are numerous ways to set tones for Calls, Notifications, Texts, Emails etc.

    Using any File Manager app go to the main directory and locate the 'Media' folder and then inside locate the 'Audio' folder.
    In the Audio folder should be 3 more folders called Ringtones, Alarms and Notifications:
    /Media/Audio/Ringtones **Calls**
    /Media/Audio/Alarms **?Wakey?**
    /Media/Audio/Notifications **SMS, emails or alerts for individual apps**

    You can put your relevant mp3 files in the relevant folders. Long presssing the mp3 file in most apps will bring up the copy/paste/rename options.

    You should now be able to see the files in Sound Settings Menu of the phone or relevant apps.

    You can also use most audio player apps to set an mp3 for Calls, Contacts, messages etc.

    As previously mentioned Zedge is a useful app for assigning ringtones and notifications.

    Off topic, but does anyone have any tips on how to properly apply a screen protector? I went through 6 the other day and ruined the lot. Each and every one had multiple air bubbles that couldn't be removed due to tiny bits of dust and fibres getting on the screen, or screen protector itself. I done everything you should when applying them, cleaning the screen etc, and taking care not to touch the sticky part of the screen protector, but a few tiny particles still kept managing to find their way on each time, ruining the screen protector, and the look of my phone. It was so frustrating lol. I have had to send off for another pack.

    LOL, been there myself
    Use the little tag on the cover to lift the protector if you have to, this saves bending the edge trying to get your finger nail under it. Also you need to clean the screen and wipe with a micrfibre cloth to reduce static, then apply the protector in a very clean environment.

    I have put them on before successfully, but this time around, no matter I did, some small fibres kept managing to get in there and ruin the bloody thing. When I got to the fifth screen protector, I almost threw my phone at the wall, I was that pissed off and frustrated lol

    Shower.

    But don't use your phone in the shower as it may not be waterproof.

    When you have a steamy room, put the protector on. The steam will trap most of those pesky particles that get attracted to your freshly cleaned and mildly static screen.
