    Hi everyone, firstly, thanks for this site, there are some great tips here!
    Well I got my Captivate just about a week ago and can't seem to figure something out...

    I would like to be able to set an appointment, and have it use a loud, noticeable, annoying tone (i.e. to wake me up!). Currently it is using the "On Time" tone, but when I change the notification ringtone, nothing changes. I can change the notification volume, which makes "On Time" louder, but I would like a different sound.
    Any thoughts?

    I had the same problem. Could not figure it out tried everything. Eventually I had to root it and replace the on time sound file with the one I wanted. Let me know of you need help doing that.

    I just did some searching, & apparently there's no way to do it via the stock GUI. The suggested solution is to install Calendar Snooze, which lets you select your notification sound. It will play the notification sound you select in addition to the default notification unless you deselect notification sounds in the stock app.

    Yes, please. I'm already rooted and have side-loading going on, but I don't know how to go about replacing that file.
    Thank you both for the replies... In the mean time I'll give calendar snooze a try!

    Sweet! That's a good workaround for the time being...
    Hopefully it was something overlooked and the Froyo update will fix it!
    Thanks!

    it's totally bizarre to me that with all the other "droid does" features, this simple "customize an alarm sound" function "droid doesn't". and i don't mean "oh, just replace the 'on-time' file with a different sound, but call it the same thing' thing". thats hardly user friendly.
