    I changed the "Notification" sounds but when I receive a new text message it's still that annoying stock sound. I searched around, sorry for the noob question.

    Open Messaging, Menu - Settings - Notification Sound. you might have changed the email notification sound or something else.

    It appears that !every! event that generates a 'notification' has its own setting.

    I have 2 email accts set up and I had to go to each account and change the notification setting.

    With the mail account on the screen:
    [menu]
    [more]
    [settings]
    [Notification settings]
    [Check boxes]
    Email notifications,
    Notification sound,
    Notification vibrate

    I can't get down loaded ring tones from Zedge to stick. Have tried all kinds of things and just won't. Was starting to think it was a Zedge thing.

    Same problem here. Downloaded the "droid" sms notification and it will stick on the stock sms program but not handcent (my main sms client). Any ideas?

    Firstly, does the EVO have an LED notification light on the front?
    If so, can I turn off my text sound and just make it blink when I get a text?

    yes there is a led indicator behind the earpiece and yes you can turn off the notification sound.

    Messaging>Settings>Uncheck Play Notification Sound

    Settings>Sound and Display>Notification Flash>Make Sure MMS and SMS Are Checked

    Is there a way to do a custom notification, like a file I cut up myself in Cool Edit?
