Is there a way to create and import a custom audible alert when you receive a text message. I currently have the iPhone 3Gs running the 3.0 software. Thanks

Hi

From the things I'm reading, it is still missing.  For example, it is mentioned a few times in this discussion:

Hope that helps .. (the knowing, not the functionality)

There's no official way of editing your text message alert. but if you jailbreak your iPhone, there are a lot of ready-made alerts to download, and with a little technical knowledge you can make your own.
About jailbreaking, I'm not sure if iPhone 3Gs is jailbreakable or not! Google is your friend!

Yeah, I was hoping that I wouldn't have to jailbreak it. I don't think the dev team released any software to jailbreak it just yet.
