So do these 'random' posters really think we're stupid enough to type this crap into out iPhones?
I got that reply when I was asking for help on changing the sounds for new mail, text message, etc. Anyways, I got mine working.

here ya go fella: all you have to do is find the sound file you want to replace the default one with and rename it to the name "new-mail.caf" or whichever file it is youre replacing

cd /System/Library/Audio/UISounds
/System/Library/Audio/UISounds/new-mail.caf
/System/Library/Audio/UISounds/sms-received.caf
/System/Library/Audio/UISounds/alarm.caf

have fun

if i knew where i could get ahold of the default .png files that came preinstalled on the phone i could change literally everything.. even down to the color of the call button... or the symbol for having voicemail, or like the background color when you press the keypad on the phone or the color of the title bar at the top of the screen... i just need to get ahold of the .png files damnit!:mad:

I take it that theres an size limit on the sms-received.caf file because everytime I try to putfile the new tone, iPhoneinterface.exe closes. The file is 300k that im trying to push over, trying to figure out how to make file size smaller, its the tone, that keeps repeating message till it starts screaming.

Now the default tone doesn't work, even though file didn't get pushed, but its all good, will just find a different tone. Or if anyone have the default, do you mind posting?
