    I was just wondering if anyone knew how to change/customize the "New Text Message" sound names. For example, if I wanted to change the "Tri-tone" to "My Sound" is there a way to do that? I know it seems a little futile... But I like to stay organized and keep things clean. Check out the photo below to see what I mean.

    Thanks!

    There is. You have to go into /private/var/stash/Aplications.xxxx/Preferences.app/English.lproj/sounds.strings and edit that file. You will see these lines in there

    <key>ALTERNATE_1</key>
    <string>Chime</string>
    <key>ALTERNATE_2</key>
    <string>Glass</string>
    <key>ALTERNATE_3</key>
    <string>DeeDeDee</string>
    <key>ALTERNATE_4</key>
    <string>Bell</string>
    <key>ALTERNATE_5</key>
    <string>Electronic</string>

    <key>DEFAULT</key>
    <string>Tri-tone</string>
    Default is the first one in the list in Settings->Sounds
    Alt 1 is #2
    Alt 2 is #3
    etc

    As you can see in the code up there, I changed Alt 3 (4th in list on phone) from Horn to DeeDeDee, and it looks like the pic below on my phone
