Anything I can do or just go back to Go SMS?
I can't complain, the custom Vibration Pattern and sound works great.

Question. Are you using a custom ringtone located on your SD card?
The phone will boot and load preferences upon restart, than will mount the SD card. Not being able to find the SD card source, it can either go silent or default.

Since I place all my sounds in appropriate folders on the phone's memory, I have no more problems.
