This doesn't work, My windows 7 automatically adds .aif to the end of all the file names. So when i try to transfer my customer notification to the iphone it shows "sms-received6.caf.aif" How do I stop it from doing so.

You can also just create a theme to manage sms tones. What you do is create a sound clip as posted until you have xxxxx.caf in the themes folder create a theme (example: supermariosms) Then in that folder create another named UISounds (that's an i) place the ringtone in there rename to replace one of the stock (sms-received1.caf 1-6 are your options.) that's it, enable in winterboard when you want disable to bring back stock sms sounds. This way you can also create sets of sms sounds. Also works for lock and unlock sounds (filenames will be lock.caf or unlock.caf) this is how themes work and is any easy way to run through multiple sms tones. enjoy.

Its actually easier to just enable part of the iphone to be used for disk storage, copy the ringtones to the iphone, then use iFiles to rename and copy the files to the directory. Saves a lot of time and energy and you can do it on the fly.

Diskaid probably works easier since you can just navigate through the root folder --> system --> audio --> UISounds and just drag 'n drop the sms sounds. No hassle at all.

How do you do that? This tutorial isn't working for me.

In the light of all the mishap concerning OpenSSH, you might consider using a utility like Diskaid to put the sms sounds in your UIsounds folder.
