Unfortunately there is no way to modify the SMS Alert without JailBreaking your phone.

even the jailbreak program for changing tones is pretty weak, and it cost money which i thought was ridiculous for such a weak product.

Yeah Ive noticed a decline in the jailbreak programs since 2.0. But I guess the question is solved.

Look for the applications: Installer / Cydia. Then find the program you want, I do not know of any that change the ring tones, but since sangamc said it cost money, I would look in the Cydia app store found from the Cydia home page.

If you do not see Installer / Cydia, you probably havent jail broken your phone. Remember ever software update you install removes the jail break.
