    Bump

    How do I assign different sound notifications for voice mail, text, email etc????

    Can I do this from the phone or do I need a 3rd party app? If I need a app what does everyone use?

    I could have swore that there was a thread about this yesterday...but search the market for rings extended. When you go into the settings to change the notification sound select to use rings as your program of choice and you canselect any file on your phone, I believe.

    I'm a firm believer in the idea that you should not have to get a special app just to do edit basic phone functions. And it's possible that I have a found out how to do this for you without downloading an app. :)


    From the home screen do the following:

    * Open All Programs
    * Scroll to the bottom and open the Voice Mail app. Green icon.
    * Press Menu
    * Settings
    * Scroll to the bottom
    * Voicemail Notification Settings > Notification Sound

    Try changing this and testing it out. I have not since I already like my sound (DROOOIIID). Good luck. :)

    Thanks for the tips but it was a fail!

    I did this and the tone I wanted to use was in the list of options so I chose it but it didn't play after I called myself.


    Anyone else????

    OK, I just got my Incredible last week and this is my 1st smartphone.

    Yes, I have the same issue.

    I set a default notification sound 'A'

    I set a gmail notification sound 'X' and 'X' will play when I receive gmail.

    I set an SMS/MMS notification sound 'Y' and 'Y' will play when I get a text message

    I set a voicemail notification sound 'Z' but it plays the default notification sound 'A' when I get a VM.

    Sounds like a bug ... how do we report it.
