Add a ringing tone for calls:
We had already talked about adding a ringtone for sms notifications and we'll see how to make ring tones. As always, Android, it is very easy. Just connect the phone via USB and create the directory tree media / audio / ringtones to the root of the phone (if not already). Placed just want the mp3 file in that folder. It remains only to change the ringtone: go to Settings> Sound> Ringtone and select the phone ringing freshly added. Note that to disable USB storage memory to be able to select custom ringtones.
Add picture in the SMS application:
In applying SMS / MMS default Android, sent messages appear in the son as sent by me with the opportunity to display your avatar or your photo. First let's see how the SMS / MMS application chooses which image display. It uses the parameter My Android phone number visible in Settings> About phone> state. Then it searches your contacts have a contact that phone number and use his photo.
We must begin by creating a contact: put your full name, your phone number, your email addresses ... and a photo. You can do this since Gmail saw that it synchronizes itself. Another advantage to create a contact for yourself is that you can share it by email, SMS, Bluetooth or NFC to easily give your details to anyone else.
Point annoying to many, in my phone number, there is marked Unknown, or there is a back issue, making it difficult to find your contact so your photo. This parameter is actually in the SIM card. It is not at all helpful to make or receive calls, there are only for cosmetic reasons. If there is not your number, we must add it. But the ROM by default does not change this setting. If you have a custom ROM (Cyanogen or otherwise), you can edit it directly.
