How to Change the Text Message Tone on an Android

If you are an SMS freak and text a lot to your wide pool of friends every day, you might get bogged out by hearing the same text message tone on your cell phone all day long. It might be annoying at times also, especially when you receive dozens of text messages daily. Isn’t it better to set your text message tone according to your current mood? Surely a softer and more enchanting tone will sound soothing to the ears when you are in a bad mood. Or talking the other way round, a shrieking loud message tone, tearing your ears drums apart, when you are not in a pleasant mood might rage you up even more.
