Having read many ways of adding more notification tones, I decided to take the safe approach and below is a KISS approach (keep it simple stupid), that I'll share with you.

Add Notification & Other Tones
via external micro SD Card

1.   Connect Galaxy to PC using cable
2.   Open Windows Explorer, if not opened automatically
3.   Two folders appear, Card & Phone
4.   Enter Card directory
5.   All existing folders & files on Card directory appear
6.   Create a new folder and name it media[/color]
7.   Enter media folder & create a new folder and name it audio
8.   Enter audio folder & create a new folder and name it notifications   
    (you are now three layers down into the Card directory)
9.   In this notifications folder copy/paste the tones you want available for choosing on your Galaxy S notification tones   
    (that appear in Settings-Sound & Display).
10.   Close Windows Explorer
11.   Disconnect phone from PC    (hit central home button on Galaxy)
12.   Turn Off (power off) Galaxy S
13.   Turn On Galaxy S    (reboot process needed to find files)
14.   Select Settings    (hit bottom left key to quickly access this)
15.   Select Sound & Display    (3rd choice down)
16.   Scroll down to Notification ringtone & Select
17.   Tah Dah – you now have more notification tones !!!

How to add more Ringtones & Alarms ……

a.   follow processes 1 to 7
b.   at process 8 create another folder called ringtones and/or alarms
c.   Follow processes 10 to 17 and Tah Dah, you got em !!!

For the clever ones  …… you have created a new file structure on your SD card as follows, which Galaxy recognizes (only on a new power-up):-
\Media\Audio\Alarms
\Media\Audio\Notifications
\Media\Audio\Ringtones

Note:  Depending on the file structure of your sd Card, you may not need to add additional folders as your Samsung Galaxy S will pick up multiple media files on reboot (power-up).

Final Note:  This approach could work on the phones internal memory, however, probably safer to add via external memory sd Card so it won’t interfere with Samsung’s preloaded tones.  Just remember, if you delete folders or tones from the external sd Card, they will no longer be available.

Enjoy !!!   Big Grin

Can I get my phone to notify me for voicemails and keep doing it until I in some way let it know I got the message? My old motorola did that and now I have no idea that someone has left me a message unless I call the voicemail.
Also, I do NOT want email notifications...up all night!

It seems to work when you go into settings, sound, notification sounds and select the sound that you put in the file, but when someone messages you, it does not work and it chooses to play one of the defualt sounds, what I would like to know, is which folder does it keep these default or preinstalled tones in, it has to be in the internal memory as I had to install my own sd card in the phone as i bought it from amazon unlocked.

These solutions are not addressing the problem I have, so I will try to explain it better!  I need notification when I have a voicemail message, not an e-mail message.  My old phone used to beep at me until I checked voicemail and that is what I need this phone to do. Pls help! I downloaded an app that was s'posed to help, but all it does is beep every time there is a new e-mail, which just keeps me up all nite!  I want to know when I have a voicemail message!
Thank you if you have the solution!

Ah, sussed it, go to messaging first, then go to settings within the messaging (press the left button at bottom of phone while in messaging) at the bottom of that page it gives "select ring tone" if you did what it tells you above, about creating a folder called media while being in mass storage mode etc the tone should be there, select it then press Ok, then go back or press home button, get someone to text you to see if it works, it should do. Do NOT do what I did and go to settings straight from the home screen, you MUST go to messaging first and then the settings for that, it will not work that way. This worked for me, should work for everyone else.

Ah, sussed it for email, go email first, then click the email account that you want notifications, press left hand bottom button (settings) account settings, it will have "select ringtone" half way down the page. If you have more than 1 account, then you'll have to set each one same as above.

Mr Samsung, I think you could do with employing someone like me, I don't support Chelsea but my son idolises Fernando Torres, any support jobs going? Been unemployed a long time now but would like to come and work for you.

Thank you for reply, but not answering my question:
HOW can I get phone to notify me that I have a VOICEMAIL MESSAGE?
I am not interested in text messages or e-mail messages!
Is there some app that will BEEP until I check voicemail? or remind me "CALL VOICEMAIL" ???

There doesn't appear to be any voicemail tones but if you have voicemail your service provider or carrier will send a text message alerting you that you have new voicemail, sorry for misundertanding you

type in "voicemail alert" on the android market on your phone, there are a couple there for free i noticed, but I see you are in US and may have different apps for your country, as there is an app that I want but is not compatible in UK, although it is being sold on market in pounds sterling on the market on my pc, bizzare
