Setting ringtones for Pantech Link?

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.

My old Tracfone played the entire tone/song for the text alert. **shrugs**

 

So, my only solution is to find a 'short' tone for the text alert, correct?

Or, you could keep the one that you have now, but it would only last for the three seconds or so that you said it lasted for. You would just be able to hear the beginning of the tone.
