    Hi, I was wondering if any one could tell me how to make my gmail (and maybe facebook) notification sound different to my text message sound. Is there a way to make all notification sounds different?

    on a Galexy S 4G

    I have read other threads but cant quite figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Gmail uses the system default for the ringtone. But for messaging and Facebook pull up the settings in that app and you can change the tone

    when you go to your gmail settings in app, click on your account name, then you have a choice to switch the notification tones.

    I would like to change my notification tone to something that is louder and longer. I have trouble hearing the notification. Is there an app that will give different notification tones?
