I have a Pantech Link and I HAVE a ringtone I'd like to use as my text message tone. However, it does not play the entire tone. The tone is 13 seconds long and whenever I receive a text message, the phone only plays 3 seconds of the tone.
Is there ANY way to set it that the entire ringtone is played when I receive a text message?
That behavior occurs by design. A call ringtone can be longer because it needs to play until you respond by answering or rejecting the call. A text message alert, on the other hand, is supposed to be a short alert - just enough to get your attention. Most phones will only play a few seconds for the alert sound.
