Notification ringtone won't change


Thursday 10th of February 2011 / droidforums.net
Hello there! I have been losing my mind in trying to figure this out but I gave up and now I'm asking for help! I have a Droid X and I am trying to change my notification ringtone for my text messages. The problem that I am getting is that it is stuck on the same ringtone, I tried other tones the phone came with as well as music that I have. Nothing works! I have changed it before so this isn't the first time I have tried to change this. I downloaded ringdroid and have a song I want to play and it works fine for incoming calls but not texts. Anyone else had this issue? Now that I can't change this tune it's all I want to do!!! Thanks!!!

Help with Settings


Thursday 13th of October 2011 / droidforums.net
I just got the Droid 3 via a warranty replacement of my OG Droid and I'm a little frustrated setting this phone up. Firstly, I can not for the life of me figure out how to set emails to vibrate only while having a ringtone for text messages. I understand that I can set specific ringtones for notifications from within a specific app, but no such options exist within my gmail app. I open gmail -> menu button -> more -> settings -> my account -> and then I scroll to the bottom where "Notification settings" is but the only option is to enable/disable "Email notifications" and an option for which 'labels' to be notified about. There is no way I can find to change the ringtone or set the ringtone to vibrate only from within the gmail app on the Droid 3. I then thought to set all notifications to vibrate only and then set the text messaging application to a specific ringtone. But through the main menu -> sound -> Notification ringtone, there is no option for 'none' or 'vibrate only'. Am I completely missing something? How do I set gmail to vibrate o

Change E-Mail Ringtone possible?


Tuesday 29th of March 2011 / androidforums.com
I am using the Mail application (not gmail) I've ripped the phone inside and out and cannot find where to change the ringtone for emails! It is using the same sound as my text messages. I change the default notification in the settings menu to a different sound and it is still playing the same ringtone as my sms! This has been a problem with sense ever since I owned a touch pro 2. Ridiculous!
