It worries me whenever an inanimate device arbitrarily changes it mind, without human intervention ... like this: I've got three e-mail accounts set up on my Ally. Each of these three accounts has a unique ringtone. Also, another ringtone is set up for notifications. Here's the deal: Sometimes they play, and sometimes they don't. I've spent hours trying to figure out if there's some PATTERN to this misbehavior ... but I never found any. I'm brand-new on the Android planet, so I find this particularly confounding. Would be very grateful if anyone has a clue why this may be happening. Thanks!!
