Default Skyrocket Notifcation Ringtone won't change!

I have tried to change my Notification Ringtone from Whistle (the default) to Pixie Dust repeatedly, and it refuses to change; It is still playing the Whistle sound when people text me. I have also tried restarting my phone, or changing it to something besides Pixie Dust, and nothing is working.

Any ideas why?

Update:

I downloaded Zedge and then downloaded a few notification sounds, then pressed and held the target-like symbol to set it as the default notification sound. My phone STILL plays that stupid Whistle sound every time I get a text!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you trying to change it from inside you SMS/Messaging app or through the settings>sounds>notifications?

Through Settings/Sounds. I use the standard texting service that the phone came with.

I just picked up a skyrocket today, it's dumb but you have to change it within the sms app itself. Not sure why, but that is how you change it.

Exactly. The Notifications under Settings just sets the default notification sound for misc notifications, not SMS.
