Default wheres my droid doesnt use the wmd ring

I set up wheres my droid on my Droid 3. When I send the attention phrase by text or send it in an email to mynumber @ vtext.com, I receive the text messages but wmd uses the notification sound I have set for regular text messages. In wmd ring setup, I set it for use white noise siren and also tried ring when lost. Neither works, I uninstalled and reinstalled, no luck. I cancelled my land line at home and I know Im gonna lose it and I wont be able to call it from the land line. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums, anno1d.

I don't use Where's My Droid - I use Seek Droid - but it makes sense that a text message sent to your phone rings the default notification - Where's My Droid doesn't know that you have sent a text message until after it is received, after all.

If you want to test using a phone call to the phone, get a Google Voice account and call from a PC (GV gives you 10 cents credit, so you should be able to make a call), or use Skype Out or something.
