    yes. I changed the notification ringtone in:
    settings > sound and display > notification ringtone
    but if you want a custom tune, then you need to install rings extended IIRC

    OK, it's downloaded and installed, so it tells me. But I can't see how to use it. All the selection screens are still the same and I can't find any way to access it?

    I don't get that.

    If I go to the tone settings it's still the standard set up. Rings extended says it's installed but it's obviously not doing its job. I'll try powering down and back on.

    I did and there's no option to select rings extended. I just get the same selection screen I had before. Rings extended says it's installed but I can find no evidence of it anywhere.

    Firmware version 1.5
    Kernel Version 2.6.27-a5504199
    Software version 1.0.0.A6288

    Rings Extended says it's installed but I do not get the option screen. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling - zilch.

    Now here's a strange thing.

    I installed Ringo Lite as well as rings extended.

    When I run Ringo it acts normally until I choose a track at which point the rings extended screen pops up, I then select rings extended and then it works OK, or appears to so far.

    If I uninstall Ringo I'm back to square one, RE doesn't want to know.

    Weird or what?

    So, after months and months of researching, I've finally come down to the following 2 phones to upgrade to. Either the HTC Hero or the iPhone 3GS. The iPhone 3GS (16Gb) I can get for free on O2 with a £32/month contract (Staff Discount!) - However, it's a 24 month contract! (Damn Apple and O2!)

    The best deal I've seen for the HTC Hero, is here because if I got the Hero, I really want the white version which seems to be damn near impossible to find anywhere in the UK on non cashback deals!

    That's the contracts sorted, now the performance. Even though the Hero (and Android) looks really promising, I've seen too much on YouTube and other review sites about it's speed issues in comparison to the iPhone 3GS. I know HTC have said a firmware update is imminent but is it really what it's cut out to be? Or should I let O2 tie me up in to a 24 month contract and jump on the iPhone bandwagon?
