    Anybody know an app that will make a mp3 or other audio file work as a notification or sms tone on the desire? Can convert to ringtone, but not for notifications.

    Oh, if the Nexus is made in the same factory as the HTC Desire, then it is made by the same factory that makes iphones.

    I just moved mp3 files into the notifications folder on my HTC Desire. I use Astro for file management and love it :)

    You can officially count me in the club now - Samsung Fascinate - I've only had a little time over the weekend to work with it but I do love what I see so far.

    Sneeky has DIK-speak down. :laugh: My local regional wireless company has only one ANdroid phone, the Hero. They're getting the Desire "within a month."

    Oh, and to prove 3, here's a shot of my current phone:

    I tried just dropping a file into the notifications directory, too, with astrO. I'm rooted, but don't have the permissions (free version?). so I went to the market, found super manager...holy shit, so far it smokes astro. I dropped an "Audiopostcard.amr" I recorded a couple weeks ago into notifications. at first, it didn't show up, but a reboot put in the list from the settings menu.

    Might be something with permissions & rooting, I'm not rooted.

    The phone is not locked or branded if that's what you mean. And I only use free apps until Google makes a good creditcard alternative like PayPal available.

    Google Checkout is a pretty good system. What's your issue with it?

    yeah, free version of astro is what I meant.
    check out super manager, it comes bundled with a super launcher that is very cool. I use quickdesk for "multitasking," but this is awesome.

    Wow that phone.... awesome.

    You'll love the desire when you do get it and after a few charges the battery start to hold juice longer and charge faster.
    I LOVE THE JUICE.

    Holy FUCK! That's an awesome price. Too bad it's $150 to upgrade on a family plan, or I'd have my mom get this.
