Does 2.1 just not do this? I can't find the setting anywhere.
I can't say about 2.1 (you're not running 2.2?), but on 2.2 the notification appears during a call, and vibration will occur (if configured), but there will no audible notification during a call.
Are you getting different results?
The Ally doesn't have 2.2 yet. The notification appears, but I'm talking so I don't see it. I'm looking for an audible tone, like BlackBerry.
try DG Alert (for default messaging app) or Chomp SMS
I don't know about the stock messaging app, but in Handcent, you can set it to either vibrate or play a tone or both while in a call.
Sorry. I forgot I was in the Ally forum. The results I got were on my Droid.
