    Hi,

    Is it possible to get the 6230 to play a sound file as it's Text Alert? It's
    easy to set a sound file to be a Ringtone, but I can't see a way to get one
    assigned as a Text Alert...

    Any help gratefully received!

    Andy

    All this fancy ringtone stuff is new to me, and I've been resisting for so
    long, until I had a 6230 shoved in my face by my employer, to replace my
    6310i.

    Now I love it!

    I've been searching for ages trying to find the exact ringtone I want. It's
    a "classic" phone ring .. not the crappy American "riiiiiing", but the good
    old British "ring ring". Can't get a decent one anywhere! The search is
    still on !

    Why not just record (voice recorder) your OWN "announcement", and use that
    as a message alert tone.
    As an alternative, pick up a midi file from somewhere, load it on your card,
    and assign THAT as an "announce tone"..

    Enjoy

    Personally, I prefer to find wav/mp3/midi files online from the various
    sound effect websites out there, and then stick them on the phone. I'd
    rather not be signing up to these 'four tones a week' deals or whatever they
    are. I never trust a website which opens sh*tloads of windows underneath!

    Get an audio editor (audacity etc) and a few MP3s and roll your own.
    As long as you don't have a Voda MP3s will work as ringtones in a
    6230.
