Is there a way to distinguish email notifications from text?

    I don't want to be notified via sound that I get new email. But, I do want to hear it when I get a text. Right now, the only way I can figure out to avoid it is to delete my email account from my phone. Most of my email is garbage so I don't need to hear a sound everytime a spam mail comes through.

    Can someone help??

    Also if I wind up deleting my aol account from the phone, how do i do it?

    Thanks!

    The information you left out was telling us what apps you're using for email and texting. Unless you say otherwise, I will assume you're using the stock apps.

    In most apps that notify you with a ringtone, you can go into the app's individual settings and change the ringtone. Try going into your email app and turning OFF notifications, or changing the ringtone to "Silent".

    And to do this you just hit the Menu softkey when your inside the email app, then go to settings and find the sound/notifications option and set it to silent.

    I use K-9 for email and Handcent for texts.. Handcent allows me to choose between each and every person that texts me and I get to choose notification, led color and vibrate type for each. I love it alot. Its very nice. Id recommend it
