    Hi all. My GS3 has taken to resetting my alarm, text & email alert sounds to their defult settings. This can happen only once a day to a couple of times a day. I have removed the last 3 recent apps I installed just incase these were the course but it made no difference. For example, If I set an alarm or change my meassage or email alert sounds to one of my own choosing, it will set it to what i choose but later when my alams go off or I get a text or email, the sound will have reset back to the defult one. This is beginning to annoy me no end. Any ideas guys?

    Hmm, that is odd! What about shutting the phone off or pulling the battery for about a minute, then powering back up.?
    Just curious, do you have any 3rd party volume control app installed?
    The reason I ask, is on my last device, I had a volume control app from the PlayStore and for some reason it would always change my ringtone back to default. Heh, took me a while to figure that one out:)

    for the alarm, what ringtone are you using? one of the stock ones or one of your own?

    I dont use the default sounds for any notifications, I use the zedge ones I have downloaded. I should point out that the phone has been ok for the last week and only just reset its self to the defult sounds again the other night?. For some reason, it onlyn does this now & again!

    so, Zedge controls them? that's probably the problem.
    if possible, try setting them up through the file system instead of through Zedge

    It may also be possible that the Zedge files are on the external card and perhaps it may be loosing its connection to it. There have been reports of the S3 not plying well with external cards. Try moving your sound files to the phones storage and then reassigning them.
    Good luck!
