Windows Phone 8: Ability to Add Custom Alerts for Text, Email, Etc.?

July 31, 2012 4 Comments

With the Mango update came the ability to create your own custom ringtones. Folks were shocked however as you still couldn’t do the same for Text, Email and/ or Voicemail. It looks like that will be a thing of the past however as it looks like custom alerts will be available on Windows Phone 8.

We took a look at a few more images from the Windows Phone 8 leak yesterday and from these images above, wpcentral is stating that custom alerts will indeed be available. Now I had no doubt in my mind that Microsoft would be making this feature available on Windows Phone 8. Not sure if the images above however show just that.

Nonetheless, I am sure tons of you out there are glad that this will finally be available.

    Lol this was on top of my most wanted features! I hope the 7.8 update on my Lumia 900 allows this too.

    I agree that the screenshots do not show conclusive evidence of customer alerts. It merely shows that you can changes the tones which may or may not be limited to pre-loaded tones.
    As a previous sales person, not being able to download and set custom alert tones was a huge draw back in the consumers eyes. I had many people not pick WP because of this since all other smartphone OS’s offers it.
    So this is a must have for WP8; while I do not care about custom alerts, the average consumer does.
