    First off, I've been a lurker for quite awhile now, great information site.

    Can I assign a custom ring tone for yext messages on my Infuse and if so how?

    Also, can I do the same for Calander events?

    Yeah you can do that all you need to do is put the custom ringtones or sounds on the sd card in the notifications folder in the media folder. That's how I have mine set up and I can use them for calender and message notifications

    Kinda random, but isn't the notification sound really low? Whenever I get a text I can barely hear it.

    Go to settings>sound>volume then adjust notification volume. It's out of the box setting is low. This is where you adjust all your volumes individually ie: incoming call,media,system, and notification volume. if it's still low then maybe the custom sound you chose isn't good quality b/c my custom notifications and ringtones are super loud. Hope this helps

    I don't have a media folder or a notifications folder. Could it be because I haven't created a account yet?

    I downloaded an app from the Market called GO SMS along with GO Launcher and the SMS program allows you to set individual sounds to contacts.

    none of the suggestions above solved the question. Other then installing an app there should be a way to receive sms sound. While I have Ringtone and Notification working, notification is only for incoming gmail. So haw is the messaging tone set? it can not bes set in settings>sound the 2 selections are only for the 2 I've just spoken about.

    When i set a custom ringtone to notifications for text alert, it doesnt actually work. The text alert is always the same little 'ding'. :confused: How do I get it to work?

    Since your gmail notifications seem to be working, that means you probably have the notification sound set in Settings.

    One additional place you need to set a tone is within the Messaging app itself. Go to Messaging. When you have your list of threads showing, tap the menu button and go to Settings. All the way at the bottom is a setting to select ringtone.

    The navigation may be different depending on what version of Android you are on but check the settings in the Messaging app instead of just in Settings > Sound.
