How to set up custom alerts in Windows Phone 8.1

65

We’ve enjoyed the ability to set custom alerts with our Windows Phone contacts for a while now and with Windows Phone 8.1, we know have the ability to extend this customization to our app notification alerts.

You will see two options to set a custom ringtone and text tone just below their name. Customizing an alert sound for an app is just as simple.

It’s also a standard that AT&T publically supports. They said it couldn’t be undone, that every Lumia 1520 from AT&T would need an accessory to wireless charge. Well, never say never when it comes to the Windows Phone community.
