How to play a sound file in iOS?

Jacque,

Where are the alert sounds stored on the iOS devices? It would be better to just use the alert and other sounds already on the phones instead of bringing it with the app.

I don't see it specifically in the specialFolderPath function for iOS.

Thanks,
Bill Vlahos
